Well, now you know the importance of good power conditioning. I always tell the bands I work with to have a power conditioner and an isolation transformer if they want to be completely safe in weird venues.
just to complete the picture here, there was water pouring in thorugh various holes in the ceiling of the venue. the patio door had to be sandbagged to prevent the bar from flooding. our bass player was wearing a poncho. that kind of show.

in retrospect, we're lucky only an amp got fried.

Word. That sounds just a bit too dangerous. You should send the repair bill to the club.

Yet another good reason to pay your union dues, that would have been spelled out in the contract.
Harumph!
