Q-Ruption Survival Guide

So Q-Ruption is getting closer and closer, and you’re wondering about all sorts of things. Fear not – we have you covered. First, yours truly (Mrozek) will be broadcasting backstage @ SPAC starting at 2pm. So keep it locked on all day for up to the minute updates of what’s going on. I will also be blessed with the presence of Shim of Sick Puppies, John Cooper of Skillet and at 5pm I’ll be talking with Sully Erna of Godsmack.

Here are some official dos and do not’s from Spac.org

Guests are welcome to bring the following items:

  • Food (in a clear, 1 gallon plastic bag)
  • Factory sealed water bottles up to 1 gallon
  • Blankets
  • Strollers
  • Binoculars
  • Backpacks
  • Purses
  • Small lawn chairs
  • Umbrellas
  • Ponchos/Rain Jackets

 

For your safety and enjoyment, please leave the following items at home:

  • Coolers
  • Animals/pets
  • Laser pens
  • Cooking equipment
  • Bikes
  • Rollerblades
  • Skateboards
  • Illegal substances
  • Glass of any kind
  • Weapons
  • Knives
  • Fireworks

And if you’ve ever been to SPAC for a rock show you obviously know that you are NOT allowed to bring any alcohol in. Fortunately though, they will be selling beer there. So bring some cash or your ATM card. Oh yeah, if you’re one of those who likes to tailgate in the parking lot, don’t forget to bring some of those red/blue beer pong cups. It doesn’t make it anymore legal to drink beer in the parking lot, but unless you’re acting like a complete idiot, the police usually don’t bother you as long as you’re not advertising that you’re drinking beers.

Here’s a great rule of thumb you can take with you anywhere. Don’t be a dick! Make sure that your fun isn’t ruining someone else’s fun. And be courteous, if you bump into somebody, say “Excuse me” or “I’m sorry.” Here’s one for the guys. If you bring your girlfriend in some skimpy or sexy outfit, don’t get pissed if a few guys check her out. If you can’t handle other guys looking at her, than maybe you should ask her to wear something less revealing for your insecurities. Truthfully though, you should take it as a compliment if others are checking out your lady, provided no one crosses any lines. Which again falls into that ‘not being a dick’ category.

Other than that, let’s just hope that the skies are clear as the show is rain or shine. I will never forget seeing Godsmack at SPAC one time about 8 or 9 years ago and it just poured and poured all night. Which didn’t make for the greatest conditions, but also… it was a show that I’ll never forget.
