I've tried rehearsal studios, but you can hear the band next to you, so they aren't good for recording or writing.
I've thought about renting office space, but the neighbors probably wouldn't appreciate the noise from my band rocking out. We use an acoustic drum set, and that's very loud.
I've read that Wilco has a loft in Chicago for this purpose, but I don't understand how they aren't bothering other people in the building.
Surely there must be a solution to this.
Any suggestions aside from buying a house?
EDIT: Want to clarify that electric drums are not an option. I'm looking for a place we can play full volume on an acoustic set.
