New York Cops Fine DJ For DJing

New York Cops Fine DJ For DJing

A Brooklyn bar DJ became the latest casualty in Mayor Bloomberg's escalating war on clubs last month when cops issued him with a ticket for 'Operation of Sound Reproductive Device Without a Permit' (Village Voice).

Jeremy Rodriguez was reportedly busted inside Williamsburg bar Cash Checking after police heard some of his music on the sidewalk (pavement- English Ed.) suggesting DJs as well as bars and clubs are now liable to be fined under the city's increasingly tough entertainment laws.

"Just when you thought New York nightlife couldn't get any worse it does," Village Voice club columnist Trish Romano complained.

"Rodriguez, who just moved back to the States after six years in Barcelona, is probably wondering why in the hell he ever returned," she suggested.

The incident occurred days after Bloomberg announced new regulations outlawing excessive bass vibrations, with cops authorised to issue swingeing fines for noise violations based on their own judgement rather than noise meters (US$3,000 for second offences).

However, in better news for Manhattan clubland, the influential New York Nightlife Association are suggesting that they've succeeded in stalling the puritanical Mayor's 1am curfew plans (at least temporarily) in a recent posting on their website.

"While we can all breathe a sigh of relief that a 1 AM Nightlife License will not be imposed on us this year, this is not the time to let our guard down," they warn.

"In fact, it is quite possible, even likely, that the Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA) will revisit the issue again in the near future."
