The bands are back! Just days after a fire at The Rebel Lounge in Phoenix, the venue is reopening.

The club's owner, Steven Chilton, is just glad the place is still standing.

"Luckily it wasn't worse, you know. It could have been way worse and it wasn't. We put a lot into fire safety before the event and all that investment completely paid off."

He says the band that started the fire, Three Bad Jacks, never had permission to do it.

The band says Rebel Lounge knew what their show entailed and gave them the go ahead.
