(TV) unsafe venues

i'd like to nominate three now defunt pittsburgh venues, the electric banana, the decade and the millvale industrial theatre. the banana was built on stilts over a steep hillside. if they was a significant crowd you could stand under the banana & you could see the whole club bounce & sway. the ceilings of the decade were covered in parachutes. one stray match & we'd all have died. at the industrial theatre a narrow 10 foot hallway was the only escape route. as i heard of the great white tragedy, i thought of the amazing amount of shows i saw or played at in the decade & the banana & was very happy to be alive.
