Locals involved in music scene share their thoughts on how they'll prepare for future concerts

Posted: Updated:

People haven't only been talking about the deadly shooting, it's also affecting how people will prepare for local events. Locals involved in the music scene are sharing their thoughts on how they'll prepare for future concerts.

We spoke with musician and radio personality Clarissa Serna as well as Mark Schaberg, General Manager of Concrete Street. Both are extremely familiar with the crowds that come out to their events and both said safety has always been their number one concern.

During the day it's a quiet, wide-open, concrete venue but when there's a concert going on, Concrete Street can hold up to 10,000 people.

Schaberg says after Las Vegas their security team had a meeting to make sure the necessary security protocols were in place. 

Schaberg said, "We did meetings with first responders here about mass evacuations and panic type situations so that we were prepared."

Preparation is key. Serna has been singing and writing her own lyrics for the last fifteen years and knows personally, how dangerous it can be. 

Serna said, "It reminds me of an event with one of the girls that was with me on The Voice, Christina Grimmie, shortly after her appearance on the show she was doing a tour and one of her fans killed her, just right there at a meet and greet."

Serna says it's a harsh reality and admits she's already looking at additional security for herself while on the road but says she won't let the fear of what might happen, stop her from continuing her passion.

She says she hopes this won't stop other people from attending concerts and enjoying their favorite bands and music. 

Serna adds, "Go there with every intention of just having a good time, a wholesome good time, with people that want to share the same experiences as you and just be aware of your surroundings."
