End of Sumter Street shed music

A nice piece in the Wall Street Journal by Valerie Bauerlein looks at the ongoing story of the shed-sized metal self-storage units at Sumter Street Self in Columbia which have played a key part in the city's music life. Over the last 20 years, up and coming musicians of all ages have used them as rehearsal spaces (including Hootie & the Blowfish) but after a two-year campaign by a Bach-loving, Hootie-hating local resident who objected to the noise pollution, the local authority has slapped a ban on the practice sessions. It's an interesting piece and well worth a browse.
