Why are 8 bands playing at once??? The first 3rd Friday event proved that the producers learned nothing from the cacophony that is First Friday in Los Altos. No one act can be heard without intrusion from other acts—except perhaps if you are standing next to the speakers of an amplified band. Sitting at a restaurant with 3 competing musical acts within earshot is NOT pleasant. How about 4 acts spread out enough so attendees can enjoy the musical acts one at a time as one eats or strolls? Sometimes “less IS more”!
