New policy at the Darling’s Waterfront Pavilion means the bag you’re planning to bring is probably too big.

Staff at the Darling’s Waterfront Pavilion in Bangor announced this week that, in keeping with “industry standards,” concert-goers will now only be allowed to bring in one small clutch or wristlet type purse, or else bring anything they’d like to carry with them into the venue in a clear plastic bag not exceeding a certain size. The specifications are outlined in the image below.

If you were planning to bring a giant tote bag jammed with enough supplies for a camping trip — plus those beers you were trying to sneak in — you won’t be allowed in the venue with it. Plan accordingly! Ladies, just bring your phone/keys/debit card/cash and lip gloss, in a little bag or in your pockets. What else do you need, really?
