Rainbo Gardens and Kinetic Playground Here are a few remembrances and notes:
Like a previous post I too hung out at Rainbo ice rink on Friday nights with my pals. I remember the Kinetic Playgrond and hearing the loud music coming from it as well as seeing the weird looking characters hanging out on Clark street.
Doug V says; I grew up and lived 2 blocks west of the "Playground/Theater". I'd like to offer some corrections. Actually the "Theater" was not the Rainbow, it was directly to the south of the Rainbow in what was formely the Uptown Bowling alley. My dad was in a bowling league that bowled there and it's where he took me to learn to bowl. I found it quite amazing that eventually as a teenager I was sitting on the floor watching groups such as Zeplin, Who, Fudge, Litter, etc. where I used to roll bowling balls. My folks were pretty cool and I remember walking over with them the night the place opened. The first band I ever saw there was the Jefferson Airplane for $5. Everyone was just sitting on the floor and the place was packed, I didn't get feeling back in my legs till I walked the two blocks home. I introduced many a friend to this venue and as it was so close many of use would go there every weekend. I cannot remember how many time I saw the Who and Zeplin there but distinctly remember Pete performing the entire Tommy probably for one of the first times. I also remember one of the Zeplin shows when the place was packed with a bunch of straights on dates and they procedeed to play some raunchy stuff and were liberal with the profanity tha many of the straights left. Once the place cleared out somewhat Plant said OK now we can jam and jam they did (a show I'll neve forget even though I was no doubt dazed and confused at the time). I also remember one time someone coming to our front door with a petition to close down that "house of illrepute", needless to say my folks refused to sign it. I will always have a place in my heart and mind for the Playground/Theater, many a good time (never a bad trip) and a definite learning experience! I also find it very funny when my sons came home awhile ago and told me they were at the Kinetic Playground the previous night drinkin beer and checking the show out.
JGScott adds: I remember a lot of those shows as I worked security, mostly on the stage, and also unpaid which was true for a lot of the "help." My best memory was the WHO concert. I was working stage left, basically sitting next to the speakers so when patrons would try to climb up the speakers to see, I would gently toss them back into the crowd. The old stage had blocked views from the side. Anyway the concert was amazing, I have heard that Townsend said that was the first time they played songs from Tommie in public. After the concert I looked in the mirror and ear wax was running down the side of my face. No wonder Pete has damaged hearing. RIP Russo.
As far as the ice rink, I remember it as Rainbo arena, I played a lot of midnight hockey there as we could rent the ice for cheap and play all night. I thought it was owned by Cale Carvell at that time.
Ratfink says: to the "band boy" for Siegel-Schwall; Rod Stewart was singing for the Jeff Beck Group (and the bass player was Ron Wood) at the time of the show you spoke of-I was there as well and recall Plant's comment. Kim Simmonds of Savoy Brown told me a few years ago that he and Plant had a bit of a punch-up backstage, perhaps as a result of said comment. Mr. Plant was full of piss & vinegar then, quite so for a lad of 21 or 2-perhaps too much for his own good, but he had one hell of a band behind him! You got the band list correct. I saw Zep there 3 times all told, and just about everyone else who was popular at the time. It was always $5 admission, Fridays & Saturdays anyway-those were the only days I went as I was 16 at the time and in high school.
PLM remarks - My friends and I went there every weekend possible. I worked in a Chinese Restaurant on the NW side of Chicago all day Saturday to make $15. The money was split as such: $5 for the entrance fee to the Playground, $5 for transportation & food, $5 for miscellaneous extras. If I remember rightly, there was some sleazy place on the corner near the place where we used to go in and buy things from some very shady characters. Ah, the innocence of youth. It was just enough money for a fun filled and wild weekend. I was lucky to be there on the night when Zepplin, Fudge & Tull played. I got grounded for staying out so late. At this venue, I got turned on to the Litter, Mason Profit, The NICE (with Keith Emerson) when the Playground had maybe 10 people in it because no one know who that was. I met Minnie Ripperton in the bathroom with her baby daughter. I saw Jefferson Airplane, Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Savoy Brown, the WHO and many more. It was the place and time that defined my awakening, defined who I was, and I was only 16 years old.
I remember taking the Greyhound bus from Elgin, IL to downtown and Playing Hockey at the Rainbo. In those days, around 1964 or so we did not have alot of local Ice Rinks and Rainbo was available, although a long trip. I remember the unique building it was in and the odd location of the dressing rooms to the ice. I also remember the murals of trees that surrounded the rink and the limited area to sit on the bench up against the wall. On one occasion I remember they had repainted the murals and had not posted any wet paint signs. All of us, needless to say, had pine tree murals on our hockey jerseys. It is sad that all of these old shrines became housing areas. I am glad I had the opportunity to be part of the history of that area. I was 14 years old then and can still remember it so clearly.
Though I saw a majority of my big shows at the Aragon in Chicago in 1968-1970, I saw several memorable ones at the Kinetic including the famous Jethro Tull, Led Zeppelin, Vanilla fudge show in 69', when I was 17. Jethro Tull was a complete unknown to us at the time and a great surprise - that early Tull is still my favorite incarnation of that band. Zeppelin we knew about because we had recently picked up their first album which of course, was unlike anything we had ever heard - we loved it right away! The very early Zeppelin is also my favorite version of the band. I remember sitting in the middle, pretty close to the stage, on the floor of course. I had actually been into Vanilla Fudge before Zeppelin but left the concert with a Vanilla who? attitude. And because of curfew, we were only able to stay for 1 Fudge song - don't think they came on until about 11PM, which was often the case with the headliner at these 3 band sets. Not sure about this show, but they sometimes did 2nd sets at these where they were playing to all hours.
I remember a 'bar' at the Kinetic where some type of drinks were served but it must not have been alcohol since they let us minors in - for $5.
I never drank anything there because I didn't want to leave my floor seat and have to navigate to the bathroom and then never be able to find my way back to my friends and where I was sitting.
I remember standing in the lines for the shows -- it was general admission -- and having people walk up and down, peddling their various wares, mostly different types of acid.
I used to belong to a 'boys club' called the Demolays that was not too far down the road (on Lawrence) from the Electric Theater (and the name changed later) and early on, we either skipped a meeting or went after the meeting to a weekday show (probably just some local band(s) - I got my first exposure to strobe lights. WOW! There were beach balls also, that people were tossing around in the strobes.
Other bands I saw there that I can remember - Canned Heat (pretty bad I think), It's A Beautiful Day, there were others. Really wish I could find a concert history for back then at the Kinetic but I cannot.
I would like to say the outlaws m.c. i guy named surfer ran the front door . not the hells henchman. he was a friend of my brothers Ron.....Gary (Jorma) Falkenberg I also new crazy don pres. of the henchman. also blue cheer was the loudest band at the time not the who also blue cheer was playing the weekend of the fire they say they so loud it shook the wires lose... I do remember two show the nite of Zepplin, Tull and Vanilla Fudge. but most nites one set each band. in the 60's Chicago had a weekend cerfew for 18 and under of 11-30. we closed it out most nites at about 12-30 cops came in and made everybody leave. next stop on the way home to nw. burbs was the airport. lots of tripin freaks walkin around. boy those were the daze seems like nobody talks about the acid that was there everynite. i did my first hit in 68.at 16yrs. old it was $5. so it cost 5 to get in 5 to get high and it cost$3 to fill up the VW 3 of us at $1 each sometimes we went fri. and sat...some weekend kinetic on fri. aragon on sat. it was easy to see 6 or 8 GOOD bands a week. the bands were so down to earth lots of them walked around after thay played. I talked to Bob Wier in the john talked to Joe Cocker, many others.
(*CORRECTION: I was at the Kinetic Playground in 1969. Aaron Russo's partner was Richard Schulman, not Steve Shulman. I was visiting the University of Chicago and I stayed with Ricky in his apartment and he took me to hear The Who play Tommy at the Playground. Sadly I have heard that Ricky died several years later.

Vulpix will evolve once you use a Fire Stone on it, it will evolve into Ninetales.
The phase change from gas to liquid is called condensation. When matter changes state like this, it loses kinetic energy, thus it gives off heat.
