Slow sets stop street brawls?

    Looking for help here. I'm trying to track down a story someone told me, about a bunch of nightclubs that started playing slow sets at the end of the night, and street brawls dropped to nothing.

    I thought the person who told me about this said it was in England, but no, she says she thinks it was in Cork.

    The theory behind it was that sending out a bunch of fellows all pumped up from fast music was asking for trouble; playing a few slow sets calmed everyone down. Apparently it worked really well.

    I think the clubs may also have closed at different times, rather than all at the same time.

    Can't find the origin of the story anywhere - can anyone help, please?
