Brick & Mortar Music Hall: Limited to Eighty Decibels

The shows will go on at San Francisco venue Brick & Mortar Music Hall, but after a ruling by the city’s Entertainment Commission this week, the bar and music venue will operate under heavy restrictions — including lowering its sound to a wimpy 80 decibels.

That’s the equivalent of noise generated by city traffic, a garbage disposal, or a washing machine, according to The National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD). An average rock concert is anywhere from 110 to 140 decibels. Listen here.
