Obnoxious Loudness in Pilsen

How can people in certain parts of Pilsen tolerate Banda music and drunkeness in the middle of the night? How? The is a total lack of regard for people who have wake up early. Moreover, if you call the police, you become a target for their animosity. Does anyone know how to silence these folks without becoming a target?

    I live in La Villita so it's the same if not more so. It comes with the territory for living around Mexican Immigrants. It's a different way of life you need to get used to if you want to live Amongst different cultures

  • I've been here 6 years..a transplanted South Chicagoan.. Its a shame gentrification has softened peoples ears.. There are bigger fish to fry..but keep complaining about Banda music.. The assault rifles down Cermak Road during school hours bring perspective..

Stop your whining.

I feel happy and proud when i see filming in the hood. It can be a slight temporary inconvenience. Shameless is a fabulous show that shines a light on a different way of life.

    Right on! It creates way more jobs than just the overpaid actors - I have a good friend whose kids are both working behind the scenes on this show.

  • Pilsen/Heart of Chicago area have been part of movie & tv productions for decades. A few people that recently moved into area whine about many things that are not the real issues and concerns that actually effect our lives. The arts in general have thrived over the last few decades in our community, they add a great benefit to our community, and lives.

    A rare shoot in a neighborhood is one thing. Having a particular part of the neighborhood that is a popular industrial movie set is another. The people who live there get absolutely steamrolled...

    For example, the intersection of Blue Island and 18th is one of those places. There have been multiple shows (too many to count) and over 5 movie shoots there this past year. Each time this happens, the production companies take over entire blocks in the neighborhoods (off set) for their personal parking, trailer parking, and truck parking. Then, adding insult to injury (after kicking all the residents out) they don't even use all of the space.

    This would be a lot better if the Chicago Film Office actually did a service for the people of our City! They are only chartered to roll the red carpet out for outsiders and only have staff to rubber stamp applications given to them by Hollywood. (I confirmed this in multiple calls.) They do not limit shoots at particular locations, make sure the closed space is actually being used, or move the ancillary parking around from shoot-to-shoot. (So the same blocks keep getting hit for parking and catering.) When it rains and shoots are canceled, the "No Parking" zones stay up (even when the streets are empty) and the residents still get ticketed.
