You mentioned the loose neutral before.  I don't think you ever mentioned the fight.  Did the promoter get your gear fixed?  Did you get paid?

The gear repair was on me.

Yes I got paid for the festival.

That alley is the only place I've been where I had a rat amble by in broad daylight and just turn to look at me with the best "watta Yahs think Yoo's lookin' at" expression I have ever seen. Just stopped and stared me down. I was like "yessir, your alley sir, sorry I looked at you it won't happen again sir" and quickly averted my gaze.

This is also where I learned that R.O.U.Ses really DO exist
The location of the current 9:30 club is the old WUST hall.  A gospel radio station that I all sorts of hardcore, rap and Christian shows at. 

The steps that you load in on had this green slime that was like ice all the time.  You could bust your tail VERY easily there.

Of course it was in a small alley.

Probably one of the weirdest shows I did there (The GWAR shows got blood on the walls a couple of hours before Church was held in there---) was Christian Gospel event.  A lady got possessed, and they were trying to drive the demons out of her.  Her body was doing things I have never seen a body do.  WHile laying on her back and also while rolling over she would shoot across the floor, REALLY FAST-, almost without touching it.  The thrashing about was really crazy.  If it was faked, it was done REALLY WELL, with no advance planning or props that we were aware of.

When it was sorta over, we did not know if we could tear down or not, as there was a lot of "activity" on the floor with the possessed lady.

When most of the people had left and we were finished loading out, they were STILL working on her.

The odd thing about that hall was that because the radio station was just upstairs, you could not do sound check (or have any level in the PA) before something like 8pm or so.  I forgot, it was back in the 80s.  I've slept since then.

All sorts of events happened in that hall.

I felt really odd as we left.

“Worst loadin/loadout” is a fertile topic. 

It could be loaded with just about every hotel ballroom gig.  Greasy floors, etc.
I've started writing this one...I'll just tease it a bit by saying that the load IN was just fine, thank you very much...
In the meantime, here's the latest in the "Running a Sound Co in the 90's" sagahttps://www.prosoundweb.com/shop-hijinks-adventures-while-running-a-sound-company-in-the-1990s/
