Updated info pending, here is 2018's
-SOUTHGATE ROLLER RINK - the 16th Ave entrance we'll be using for Recon is ground level, and inside is wood skate floor. There's a narrow (and slightly steep) but navigable ramp between the bar area and the rink area. If the specific wheelchair doesn't fit, we can pop some other doors for you for rink access. The restrooms are in the main rink and are fully accessible. Other than the ramps between the back bar and the main rink, everything is flat (either wood or low-pile carpet) and easily rollable.
-There will be a merch setup for Recon swag inside the rink
-Bands will be selling their merch, too, and forms of payment will vary depending on each band. (Lots of ATMs in the neighborhood if you need 'em, too.)
-Professional photographers - please email email@example.com to discuss detailed photo policy
-No large [and/or professional] camera or video camera rigs are permitted in the venues unless previously cleared with Recon producers (see above)
-NO FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY, PLEASE! This is for the safety and comfort of the bands as well as your fellow audience members. It's also a contractual matter with the bands, so please turn the flash off. Do it now while you're thinking about it, we'll wait...ok, great!
-Photos and videos permitted for personal use only
-We ask with this, as with everything else, that you be courteous and try not to be a jerk; put the phone down and enjoy the rock! Pros - be cool, let the audience watch the show, and don't whack anyone in the face with your giant cameras.
Rat City Recon is the brain baby of our dear Jesse Lovell and has evolved to include Oliver Little (Monumental Undertaking) and Sara Green (Match + Gasoline) to put this crazy event on. Additionally, the undying support of Southgate Roller Rink throughout the years has been invaluable. We couldn't do it without the belief and support of the venues, the bands, the sponsors, and all the folks who come to the show. This is a community of music lovers and we do this out of love, so get your butts to the show, rock hard, and be good to each other!!
