Will wristbands be mailed to me?
I am 17 years old. May I go to a show at an 18+ or 21+ venue if I am with my parents?
The Station Inn welcomes you with your parents. The Mercy Lounge, Cannery Ballroom, The High Watt and The Basement have strict age policies. These venues are “bar settings” and do not allow minors to attend, regardless of parental accompaniment. They are unable to negotiate on this point. The Rutledge and 3rd and Lindsley are 18+ venues, also regardless of parental accompaniment.
