Can I use Sway Sway Baby, You're So Audio as a title again?

Last minute (Australia-filter) hopefulness: how can I contact a band and get them to acknowledge a 13 year old fan who is now on crutches and can't be up the front of the mosh pit?

My daughter just turned 13, and we're going to see her favourite band tomorrow night (part of her birthday present). Driving over 400km to do so, may I add. She's even made gifts for them that she planned on throwing on stage.
But now she's badly sprained her ankle and will be on crutches. I've told her she's not allowed to stand up the front amongst the throng due to her cankle and bruised foot/toes. I suspect the many tweenagers and teenagers would be pissed off if I, a tall 43 year old woman, shoved both of us up the front. I'm not going to ruin other kids nights just to get my baby up front.
I would KILL for the band to acknowledge her in some way. I've tried Twitter and Facebook, no response. I've tried googling their management to get in touch with them, no joy, google throws up different management/agencies, none of which have email addresses anyway.
Band: Short Stack. Venue: Newcastle Panthers Club. We're staying in a motel nearby, so waiting at the back door of the venue after the gig is not out of the question... but she's on crutches, and the bruising is still coming out, and she's in more pain than she wants to admit.
I'm wavering between letting her be a fangirl from hell - possibly to the detriment of her fellow concert-goers - and protecting her from having her crutches knocked out from underneath her - possibly doing more damage to her ankle.
She's so very disappointed that she won't be 'able-bodied' to make the most of the night. I want to turn this negative (sprained ankle) into a positive (OMG, Short Stack gave me a shout-out on stage!).
