Statement faxed in from Tannis Wright, social media strategist for
@EverythingNowCo re: Brooklyn “rules.”
If you’re planning on attending the intimate Arcade Fire record release show at Grand Prospect Hall in Brooklyn on Thursday, make sure you dress appropriately, they “reserve the right to deny entry to anyone dressed inappropriately.” Items of clothing that will not be allowed include, shorts, large logos, flip flops, tank tops, crop tops, baseball hats, solid white or red clothing (and fun*). And don’t plan on using your cellphone, they’ll be locking those up. You can read the full rules of the show in the email they sent to ticket holders below:
PHONE-FREE VIEWING EXPERIENCE:
No cellphones, cameras or recording devices will be allowed at this show. Upon arrival, all phones and smart watches will be secured in Yondr pouches that will be unlocked at the end of the show. Guests maintain possession of their phones throughout the night, and if needed, may access their phones at designated Yondr unlocking stations in the lobby.
WHAT TO WEAR:
Our dress code is HIP & TRENDY as if you are going to a concert or night out with friends! The event is standing-room-only so please plan accordingly.
PLEASE DO NOT WEAR shorts, large logos, flip flops, tank tops, crop tops, baseball hats, solid white or red clothing. We reserve the right to deny entry to anyone dressed inappropriately.
WHAT TO EXPECT
6:30pm: 1iota Check-in Opens
7:45pm: 1iota Check-in Closes
8:30pm – 9:00pm: Everything Now Live
* fun is not explicitly banned from this Arcade Fire show, we’re just assuming.
Also, it’s their show and we assume it’s for a music video so obviously they can tell people to dress however they want.
