A good lesson here is to be aware of all the exits no matter where you are.

The problem did not lie with the exits. Some of the exits where locked, blocked, or not lighted properly. I felt ad for everyone involved here and I think the band took alot of blame that truly was not warranted. I mean they even lost someone in this tragedy. I do not know how many times I have been into clubs that were clearly over fire code occupation levels. Go to any club in downtown G.R. on any given weekend and you will see what I mean. Sad part about it is that no one enforces these codes and most of the time greasy palms are to blame.
