As a drummer myself, I’m always looking for stories about my rhythm-keeping brothers and sisters. Sometimes, the news is not good.

ITEM: The owner of Madam Organ’s Blues Bar in Washington DC was fined by the city for an operational violation, namely allowing for a window to be opened at 1:30am. The bylaw states that windows must be closed after 12:30 on nights live music is being played as a method of noise reduction. However, last June, there was no question that a window was open late. Why? Because the drummer in an unidentified band farted in that room and had to let the place air out. The window was open for all of five minutes, but that’s when the inspector showed up.
The fine for the fart? A stinky $500. The owner plans to appeal.
