Hi, everyone!

I'm a huge fan of live music, as is my brother with SCI. We've had amazing experiences at some venues and terrible experiences at others, and I'm curious to hear about yours. For example, one venue we went to pretty much was just "get here early so you can be in the front," then people started moshing (heavy rock show), my brother has limited torso control and his head was in level with the edge of the stage, so our friends and I had to basically form a barrier around him so he wouldn't get hit.

What are some music venues you've been to that were super accommodating/accessible? And what are some changes that you'd like to be made to others/guidelines that you think should be put in place? I think about this a lot whenever I'm at shows because I think it's important that venues realize people who use wheelchairs and other assistive devices love live music, too. I'd like to see some more official accessibility rules put in place specifically as they pertain to venues.
