Comments : //frankblankmusic.com/pdfs /Informed%20Sources%20About%20the%20Band.pdf [Sorry, broke up URL to format page- Editor]. Although I was there for mini-brawls with the locals on other nights, I was not there for the epic battle. What I heard was that the Kensington locals did not like punks or anyone else coming into their neighborhood (or more likely, just needed a reason for a fight), and even grandmoms with bats went after the music fans.
