Thursday night, the Houston Police Department was called to Boondocks for the third time in less than a month due to complaints about the noise. Three more citations were given, this time to DJ Elroy Boogie and DJ Klinch, and -- for the third time -- Ryan, Boondocks manager.
Here are my notes from last night (quotes are statements overheard from one of the police officers):
The owner of Boondocks was also on hand to speak to the police. He did say that he was working on sound-proofing the bar.
Until then, the outlook seems grim for this popular Montrose hangout.
