Cody Titmus’ letter is spot-on with the issues, and many of his scenarios are also found at other venues [“Twilight Ain’t What It Used To Be,” Aug. 15, City Weekly]. But he comes up short on solutions.

Perhaps raise the price to filter out the baser element, but I’m not so sure that would work if you consider the boorish behavior found at Red Butte and other higher-cost venues.

I think the key way to address this is through the words and actions of the artists themselves—if they care, that is. Some may revel in the very behavior in question, but I’ve seen more than a couple of instances of artists stopping and declaring that people either needed to behave “or we’re out of here,” and in each case it worked well.
