When I was in Rock and Roll Magic, we played Baldy's.  It was toward the end of the club.  I remember none of the electrical outlets worked on the stage and we had to find some long extension cords to run from the room down below where the pool tables were.

I played in the group Soldier out of Seattle from 1973-76.  We played Baldy's in the summer of 74.  I remember as the drummer I had a large fan blowing air at me and someone set off a tear gas canister on the dance floor.  The cloud rose to the ceiling then into my fan, which blew right to the side of my head. We notice the crowd leaving, however, we finished the song before leaving the stage.  On other occasions, Mark Goehring used to come up near my fan and leave presents to offend my olfactory senses.

During the two year period Christian was together we worked hard... five to six nights a week rotating between Baldy's, Lou's Place and Little Jim's Pub.  Any group that played Baldy's in the early 70's probably experienced the same phenomenom we did....ice cubes being thrown at them from behind the bar. That was Phil's way of telling us to turn it down.
