Straight Edgers Banned After Fight At Diecast Show

According to an article from the Salt Lake Tribune, members of Diecast and Hatepiece have been attacked by Straight Edgers at a Midvale concert on Saturday. Solid Entertainment Promoter Bobby Baught now plans to exclude members of the anti-establishment group from future shows.

"Every band I talk to is worried to come to Salt Lake because they're worried about the Straight Edgers here," said Solid Entertainment promoter Bobby Baugh, who noted that the group, in most other communities, practices a lifestyle free of violence.

Baugh said he will have bouncers screen ticket holders at the door and keep out those who appear to be Straight Edgers.

No arrests have been made in the fight, in which several security guards and band members were injured. Officers from six agencies responded, but those involved in the fight had left.
