Yes I have and I appreciate the thought, but tbh that's an absolute last resort.Have you looked into an artist's workspace? Where I'm from there are a couple of places that let bands come in and rehearse there. They are in industrial areas of town where people won't care about noise in the middle of the night. The one my band worked out of for a while had both a membership and a pay-as-you go option. They weren't necessarily cheap -it was like deluxe cable package money - but spread out among band members it was workable.
Because 1) I need a place to store everything under lock & key, no room in our condo for 3 amps and I really don't want to have to pay rent on a storage unit AND a practice space! Let alone the trouble of loading up and unloading every time just to go jam... and 2) they're expensive AF. The places I've talked to around here treat it almost like studio time, pay by the hour and rush because the next group has an appointment. We like to casually jam, brainstorm, take breaks, hang out. Hell, that's how we write music!
