Live Music Reduces Alcohol Fuelled Violence According to Study

band 2

An article I recently read spoke about the work of a British anthropologist, Dr Anne Fox who studied the Australian drinking scene a few years ago and is an expert with more than 20 years of experience under her belt, stating that live music is good at preventing alcohol fuelled violence.

At the time she was specifically studying the link between alcohol and anti-social behaviour in “the night-time economy” and found that live music is good at preventing alcohol-fuelled violence. As the writer argues, Sydney’s lockout laws have done damage to the city’s music scene, the very thing that could have helped tackle alcohol fuelled violence.

According to her research, “cognitive loading” such as listening to music diminished the potential for alcohol related aggression.
