Yesterday morning, three men were hospitalized after the ceiling collapsed at a Chicago nightclub.
DNAinfo Chicago reports that a "two by three section of plaster" fell from above during DJ Datsik's set at Concord Music Hall in the city's Logan Square section.
Authorities suspect that heavy amounts of bass were responsible for the collapse. "The structural engineer's preliminary investigation suggests that vibrations from the music contributed to the failure," Buildings Department spokeswoman Mimi Simon told DNAinfo Chicago.
Two victims—men, ages 20 and 25—were treated for minor injuries at St. Mary's Hospital. A 31-year-old man was taken to Stroger Hospital with minor injuries, as well.
Yesterday morning, Concord Music Hall released a statement regarding the incident:
"Concord Music Hall has voluntarily agreed to close until further notice due to a section of plaster falling from its ceiling during a show last night. During this time, Concord will fully cooperate with all City of Chicago officials to ensure that there are no ongoing concerns for the safety of its patrons and its employees.
DNAinfo Chicago adds that the venue will remain closed until it passes inspection.
