That ruling is total Lame Sauce. I remember being able to go to shows when I was 17 in Texas. I had big X's on my hands all the time. There were no problems . I think the OLCC is being incredible harmful to the local music scene and a vital part of local economy as well by not allowing kids into shows. Plus, of course, it doesn't make any sense to me.

I couldn't agree with you more...

Are the teenagers in portland all gonna grow up with actually going to a show? -- that freaks me out!

who does the olcc think they are? it's obvious citizens of this city care about sharing culture with our youth. the most important time of your life to be exposed to art and music is when you're young. X's on hands is only one of many solutions to having kids in the same room as alcohol.
thanks olcc for shooting down an idea, which the community stands behind, and not offering any resolve. SHOW US YOUR ID PIGS!
