SALT LAKE TRIBUNE (AP) -- A Midvale concert promoter says he won't allow Utah's Straight Edgers into future concerts after he says they ruined one Saturday night.
Promoter Bobby Baugh says members of the Straight Edge movement were involved in a fight during a heavy metal concert that preceded a comedy concert Saturday at a Midvale comedy club.
Officials say the promoter opeend the doors late for the concert, forcing the bands to shorten their sets and making fans angry.
Baugh says that's when several Straight Edgers took the stage and began to attack the singer.
Many Straight Edgers describe their group as an unaffiliated network of people with a similar ideology that eschews drugs, alcohol, sex and civic participation, such as voting.
