Being an underage fan provides some unique challenges, and 18+ venues are definitely a big one. Animal Collective didn't find out till the day of their show at Union Hall in Edmonton Hall in Canada that no fans under 18 would be allowed in. Wanting to make amends, they offered a refund for anyone underage with a ticket. They also asked fans to email them.
Little did fans know that Animal Collective were going to let their underage fans into the venue for a private show as Animal Collective performed their soundcheck.
Only two fans responded to the band, Savanna and Cameron, which resulted in a very private concert. It also resulted in a pretty awesome group photo.
