That and they are much bigger and ostentatious than a smartphone, and let's be honest, the pictures suck badly.

The venue will give you the option of putting the device back in your car, or checking it at the venue's information booth to claim it at the end of the event.

As always, Galle says to call the box office or check the Web site before coming to a show to see what will or will not be permitted. BuzzFest has the most stringent rules that she has seen, she adds.

BuzzFest XXX is set for Saturday, April 20, and the restrictions for that show are legion due to past transgressions of rowdy crowds.

Per the CWMP site:

No blankets, tarps, towels or lawn chairs. No umbrellas. Lawn chairs will NOT be sold at this event. No flags or signs. No professional (detachable lens) cameras, video or audio recording devices.

No food or beverages. No bottles of any kind. No chains, spikes, mace, binoculars, or laser pointers. No weapons. No signs. No large bags or backpacks. Small purses are permitted.Tablets, such as iPads and Kindles, are not permitted in the venue because they are a distraction to other guests and the artists.

NO RE-ENTRY.

There is no way that tablet in the picture made it out of that show in one piece.

lame. Let people bring w/e they want. What's next? Banning the smoking of pot at concerts?

I'm all but certain you could take a lump of coal, shove in the neither regions of anyone who lives in the Woodlands, and within a week you'd have a nice albeit gross diamond..

For real, why would you need your iPad at a show? I get why they banned them, people hold them over their heads to film the show, which is stupid and distracting. That being said, the Woodlands it THE WORST place in town to see a show. Most tours that go there also hit the Frank Irwin in Austin. I'll just go there.

I guess it's a good thing that I only take a portable keyboard just in case the band needs me. Also, my intagerm pictures are awesome 'cause I take the time to filter them ;) Haaaa
