This. That is why that hardcore scene here in Chicago has sucked to me the last year and a half.
For a while most venues that could host either all ages or 17+ hardcore shows banned them because of the chaos so the main promoters for the shows booked all hardcore shows at one venue that was only 21+.
Thankfully now one venue has unbanned hardcore shows and they are booking some as 17+ now.
It wasn't because anyone got hurt its because the venues didn't want all the pits and diving.
