Few Reported Problems At Nightclub Concert

May 16, 2011, 5:52 PM by Shawn Neisteadt

Few Reported Problems At Nightclub Concert
SIOUX FALLS, SD - An outdoor concert at a Sioux Falls nightclub that drew criticism from some neighboring businesses spawned just a small list of instances where police had to step in. Others in the area now say that Friday's event has eased some worries about upcoming events.

Friday night's Papa Roach rock concert in the parking lot of The Vault nightclub had the attention of neighboring businesses and Sioux Falls Police.

"When you had that many people in that small of an area, we just wanted to make sure there weren't any problems," Sioux Falls Police Public Information Officer Sam Clemens said.

And it seems to have worked. Police report just a handful of problems from the area of the concert. A few people were cited for drinking alcohol in nearby parking lots. Two people were arrested for urinating in a nearby parking lot. But even with those issues, some of the neighboring businesses say Friday night wasn't all that bad and they wouldn't mind more events in the area.

“As long as they do the same kind of work that they did in advance and have preparation, I think everything will be fine" Tracy Kolb of the Hampton Inn said.

Kolb says like other hotels in the area, they were concerned concert goers would fill their parking lot.  Instead, she was impressed by how quickly crews were cleaning up all along Carolyn Avenue.

“As soon as the concert was over, they were out cleaning up and down the street. So it was great. I think they did a great job controlling whatever issues might have come up," Kolb said.

Kolb and police hope that's the case again soon as four more concerts are scheduled for the same location.

The manager of the Staybridge Suites, which is next to the Vault, says he still believes better locations exist for concerts. A few of his guests did complain about the volume of the concert.
