-Although people under 21 are allowed at this venue, this doesn’t mean that every show will be appropriate for those ages. You will need to do your own research to determine what’s best for the minors in your party.
-Sometimes, bands do not reach the stage at the advertised time. Be ready to be flexible when coming to a show and know that you may get out of there later than anticipated.
