Loud Music at Caffe Lena in Saratoga Activates Security Alarm at Music Store

Usually when you hear about a security alarm going off, you think that someone may be trying to rob the place, but in this case, there was no need to be alarmed.

As I was reading this story in the Times Union, I actually got a chuckle from it. On Sunday night, June 24, 2012, the security alarm was set off at Cole’s Woodwind Shop, which is located at 47 Phila Street in Saratoga Springs. But the alarm didn’t go off because of anyone trying to break into the music store, it was set off because of music. The store is downstairs from the Caffe Lena coffeehouse.

According to Bill Cole, the owner of the woodwind shop, this happens from time to time. Sometimes if the performers  at the coffeehouse stomp, it will cause the alarm to go off. Caravan Of Thieves was the name of the band that was performing on Sunday night, and set off the alarm, because one of their songs included the audience to stomp at the same time.

Another little humorous fact about this story, is that Cole’s son has played drums during an open mic night at Caffe Lena, but he never set the alarm off.
