A dinner at Molos on a Saturday night features live music though you’d hardly know it. For most of the evening the social din was so loud that it would have been easier on/for the musicians to wait until later to play.
Typically din begets din. If a place is noisy and crowded, any attempt at conversation is fruitless unless one wishes to contribute to the din by speaking very loudly (sometimes called screaming) – which naturally only aggravates the problem. Adding a tiny bit of alcohol to the mix and you get a major environmental mental catastrophe for not only are there 75 people screaming their thoughts – many of those thoughts are better left un-shouted because someone might hear them. Not to knock conversation. It’s important most of the time.
