In this interview clip, Art Chantry recalls a 1985 show at Seattle’s notorious Gorilla Gardens.  After the overflow crowd spilled onto the street, the police and fire departments came to investigate.  Officials soon discovered the building lacked a sufficient number of fire exits, and threatened to close the place down.
