Concerts affect Crystal Palace

Dear Editor:In light of the imminent rock concert in Wagner Park and the evident approval of the City Council, I wonder if anyone, from the Aspen Skiing Co. to the City Council, has considered what a high-powered amplification system a half-block away will do to the show at the Crystal Palace, which normally is performed from 8:30 until 10:00 p.m..Is this selfish of me to even question the wisdom of our benefactor (The Skico) or our politicians?I would like to think that my Crystal Palace show is unique and a great asset to Aspen; at least I am told that repeatedly by our patrons, who continue to lavish praise on our 48-year-old show of political satire.Is an outdoor rock band really necessary, when it disturbs events and evening entertainment in adjacent restaurants, most of which pay taxes and support the Aspen culture?Hey, I don’t think this is at all sour grapes! Let’s be practical: The band is going to affect the Crystal Palace show!Mead MetcalfAspen
