Cow Palace bans rave-type shows after drug-related deaths
from San Mateo County Times
Cow Palace leaders have decided to ban rave-type events at the state-run entertainment venue for the foreseeable future after drug and alcohol overdoses, including two deaths, at electronic music shows this year. The Cow Palace board unanimously approved a moratorium on "music and dance parties," although that decision didn't specify a length of time or preclude the venue's leaders from considering bringing back such shows at a later date. Despite the move, at least one Daly City, Calif., City Council member still wants the state to give the city local control of certain Cow Palace events in case the venue does host those concerts again.
