Let's look at it from a different perspective (one of the reasons you're venting to us...right??)

I'd make nice for a while...then explain to them how their partying effects you...maybe they don't know they're loudness carries (maybe)...then again, be grateful they haven't turned you in for moonshining...

Don't certain drum notes sounds like gun shots?

A concerned neighbor would surely call the police with the words "shots fired".

Watch the party die as the SWAT team roles up.

Its a tough issue. On the one hand you don't want to be 'that guy.' On the other hand they are making it difficult for you to live in peace and quiet. I had this happen two years after we bought a house in a tightly spaced neighborhood. We shared a driveway with our neighbors. Their home and yard was max 30 feet from our home. The neighbor-kids and their stoner buddies thought that it would be great if they could all smoke pot after school in their backyard with no parental supervision.

A stern and clear 'this is how its gonna be' discussion with the parents shortly after we saw this activity stopped that. But then the kids got a bit older and got cars and started their rowdy partying at all hours. They made it difficult for us to use the shared driveway. Further discussion with the parents changed nothing. The other neighbors are pussies and refused to get involved even though they complained in private. So we resorted to calling the cops several times. We even had a bike cop on regular patrol; the cops were interested in a potential drug bust. The kids hated us, and still 3 years later the kids give us nasty looks, but so what? What do I care about some idiot teens/20-somethings and their feelings. I only hope some teens do the same to them should they ever move out and get their own home. The parents are now much more mature about it and we get along with no friction.

Anyway, food for thought and don't let them make you feel uncomfortable in your own home.

a small flash bang and some tear gas into that garage will break up the parties nicely

Call the cops. Dope&Guns, swear to gawd!!
I live in a condo and have to go thru this same stuff occasionally.
Renters move in and think they have free reign over the community.
Wait until the weeeed smoke is rollin' then call 911 and tell em' you thought you saw some kids sportin' an AK-47
You will get results.

ITS Fu$%ing 2 am and my neighbor (about 10ft away from my bed room) is blasting some loud a*s music right now. The wife is pissed, I had to be that guy - I called the cops and no one answered the door when the cops came.
