Nevada City, CA According to sources close to the iconic Nevada City landmark the Miners Foundry, the non-profit community center is seeking a grant to improve its sound system to attract bigger acts and more obviously  to annoy old people with a more modern sound system.

According to sources close to the fundraising campaign, in order to attract modern acts and annoy the Lawrence Welk fan base,  the Foundry needs new professional equipment. Currently the center has to borrow and sometimes beg to get the equipment that professional acts require.

“I don’t like this loud stuff one bit,” said an annoyed Mary Shilling of Penn Valley. “Isn’t it loud enough in there already? And why do we need all these young rock and roll groups anyway with their foul language and shady attire. The sound is fine the way it is for us folks who go there.”

Not everyone is as confused about the modern economy as Ms. Shilling.

“This is a fantastic opportunity to help the Foundry folks,”said Nevada City‘s self-appointed spokesperson Sairhra Ramun. “Look, it’s real simple. Better audio gear gets us better and more modern acts. This helps keep the community from turning into a retirement community like Scottsdale Arizona.”

According to the fundraising organizer, local sound engineer and former SWA drummer Greg Cameron, the lack of professional gear is a factor in the Foundry’s overruns.

“Truthfully, for most acts I can get decent volume out of the cheap plastic boxes.” said Mr. Cameron in a Gish Gallop Interview.  “But it’s always a sticking point with the bigger bands. And we have to turn down acts that demand the rider is fulfilled because adding in the rental cost for a solid monitor rig puts the Foundry way over budget.”
