What's the place like?
Surely you're not sitting at tables.
It really depends on what you're like at live shows.
Personally, I live to weave my way to the front & if there's a bit of shoving, it's part of being there.
But it like there's a small balcony there.
Maybe you could go up there & get some good shots, if you're not the type to get rowdy with the people at the front.
