Unacceptable and disrespectful to Houston

In regards to Tuesday?s event, April 12 2011, I am appalled at the disrespect and lack thereof you have shown towards our ?quiet? community. The new artist community in our neighborhood is accepted by many however, the leadership in marketing for your promotions and events is questionable.

Tuesday?s event was not a reflection of the celebration of an art community, but rather a display of a college spring break gathering. May I remind you that this is a quiet, family oriented community; not a college campus!

Your event forced my family indoors on a rare beautiful evening. Our three year old son was in tears and in fear of the volume in which you allowed for the band that attended your display. Our son could not sleep nor did he feel he was in a safe place to do so.

There is a townhouse directly across the street from you which houses a family with a new-born baby. We did not receive warning or notice of your event and you have in my opinion violated our space and environment with high traffic along with a level of noise only acceptable in enclosed arena?s.

A close friend of mine is a prominent figure in the Houston artist community as well as abroad. In fact, he was one of the first artists to display and rent a location in Winter Street Studio. After speaking with him about his participation, involvement and experience in the art community of Houston, he has expressed never witnessing such a disrespect for a community as you displayed Tuesday.

This is a quiet community with family, close friends, and a way of living that does not include a ?MTV Cancun Vacation? style of rant. I speak for our community and for those in the surrounding neighborhood.

My wife and I both have been working with advertising agencies for over 12 years and have never even dreamed of running such an invasive campaign for any reason.

We and our community would like to ask that you earn our respect by taking this letter and future events into consideration.

And to think I believed it was Spring Street Studio's who put this together. Do you only care about your looks, or do you really care about this city?
