LZ in Chicago 1969

15 posts in this topic

LZ in Chicago, Kinetic Playground. II-1969.  MY original negatives just scanned.  Never before made public.  I don't remember anything about the concert!  But images show an amazing intimacy not common today.  Kinetic was a major venue with a state of the art computer surround light show.  Now on ebay.  You can contact me direct:  experienced60626@yahoo.com.

Thanks for sharing these, from a fellow Chicagoan. Wish I had been old enough to see them there, and hear Bonzo basically acoustically as well as amplified. Rare air.

Fantastic photos. I won't even try not to envy you for being there! Oh for a time machine!

Incidentally, there's a bloke who looks like Hendrix in the front of the first pic. Now who says him & Page never met? ;)

Great shots, I was unfortunately too young to go to the Kinetic Playground, & of course it is long gone. There are still some smaller venues around the Chicagoland area, IMHO the best place to see any show. I'm not going to even mention what the ticket price was for this show, as it was ridic cheap.

Apparently even in his Way of Life days he liked to stand on the drum seat and get his shirt off!

Far out. It looks like he's stepping down on the snare while hitting it.  Hopefully that old Atlas stand never gave way...that'd be a Spinal Tap moment.
