Hi BambooLodge,

I just went to the ticket link and it said that this was a 21+ event.

Wasn’t the last one an all-ages show? Or all ages until a certain time? I thought I brought my daughter to the last Exotica during the day. This year I have some friends coming from out of town and they wanted to check it out with their kids.

Kids under 12 w/parent FREE! Thank you, I will have them update ticket page.

Disregard 21 and over notice on ticket page. FitzGerald's event page has the correct info...

Spies Who Surf are playing at 7:00! This is too good to be true. My favorite instrumental band, period.

Counting down the hours until Tommy and company take the stage…….
