Respect

The Sweetwater has been an institution in Mill Valley for I don't know how many years.  Then, it closed, and re-opened recently.  We went hoping to enjoy some music.  Absolutely impossible. People in the audience stood right in front of the singer, talking.  I could not figure it out, and have had no desire to return.

I read this and wonder if Bob Weir's response will have an affect.  It sounds like management has tried to accommodate those who come to hear the music.  What I don't understand is why people come to a venue like this, and then, talk through, and over the music, to their friends.  Couldn't they find a quiet place for that, possibly their own home?
