Fine Line accessibility report
I went to the Delta Rae concert at the Fine Line last week. Accessibility, like at most venues, was a mixed bag. There is no information on their web page about accessibility. I emailed them to ask about wheelchair accessibility or accessible tickets. They replied pretty quickly and informed me to buy general admission tickets, that I just needed to email them my name and needs, and they would have a space reserved for me.
When we got to the show they escorted us to a spot right by the stairs up next to the stage. LOVE being right up front! This spot allowed direct access to the bathrooms and for most shows would have been great for seeing the band. For this show it offered great view of the piano, see photo. My father (aide for this outing) said that once the room filled it would have been difficult (not impossible) for me to move around.
As for the concert, the opening act, Liz Longley, was incredible. If you like folk music, you are in luck. Check out Outta my head.
The main attraction was a band called Delta Rae, an interesting group (interesting in a good way!). They are kind of southern folk rock. It was awesome to get high-fives from band members as they were going on and off the stage! Watch the Dance in the graveyards video – it’s awesome!
