There was a story from the late 60's - early 70's that when BLUE CHEER played the Kinetic Playground ( the REAL one @ 4812 N. Clark) they drew SO MUCH POWER with their 10 daisy-chained Marshall 100 watt amps( with such high SP levels) that they actually damaged the wiring and the walls so much the place burned down after the next show (the Dead?) days later. True? I have no reason to doubt it.
Any "Kinetic" historians out there ?
