It's been a while since I've been to a concert without assigned seating.

My spouse and I are taking my 16-year-old daughter to a concert tomorrow night: Ellie Goulding, with Conway, at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco. I have some random questions, and would appreciate any tips on having a great experience.

We haven't been to the venue before. The show is sold out, though there are tickets available on various resellers. How crowded is it likely to feel? Are there particularly good spots for short-ish people to get a good view without being crushed? Are the security people likely to be draconian about photos? (Not going to record anything, just a few photos would be nice. Only the adults will have phone/cameras.) How are the acoustics?
Normally I'd take BART, but if the parking situation isn't too bad, I would consider driving. Is it worth the hassle? If the doors open at 8pm, should we plan to arrive early? How early?
And on the off chance that anyone else here is going, we'll be the middle-aged queer couple in sensible shoes trying to keep up with the teenager.
