30 Days of Dead November 4

Today's Song

Hint: Rarely a show-opener, but when it was, you know a hot show was on the way


Cleveland, OH, Cleveland Public Auditorium
This show-opening Sugaree hits the peaks one would expect of a version from 1980

Set List Format for 2013

I enjoy that the songs for the 2013 addition appear to be taking on the structure of an actual GD Set List.

Interesting and fun touch if they are, in fact, doing that.

Would be somewhat rare for two Jerry tunes in a row in the first set. I like the idea though!

Very difficult questions!

These questions are very difficult, if not impossible!
I'll be satisfied with an mp3 per day, it's still a great gift!!

I think they are being too easy on us for the 3rd day in a row. Listening to the end of this song really narrows it down.....

According to Public records, this structure houses 2 separate venues. Choose carefully my friend!

public records

The band site and Deadbase list one venue, several versions on archive list the other, but according to more research they are in the same location and one source says the names are inter-changeable. It could be said that one is within the other and therefore both are correct.

Oh yes, I agree about both being correct. However, the contest drop down list does show both names. I commented only 'cause in past years, choosing say... RFK Stadium vs Robert F Kennedy, or Coliseum, vs Hampton Coliseum, proved me incorrect per the website answers. I recall one time the posted venue answer was different than what both Deadbase and archive stated. All Grate fun just the same!

Odd, but Typical

It would be Odd, but Typical, if the venue answer accepted as "correct" for purposes of the contest were different from the venue listed for this concert's date at this website's own database of shows...

Speaking of Odd, but Typical -- Is the "rules" link for this contest still a dead link, four days in? Why yes, it is. Odd, but Typical.

I saw Jimi Hendrix do an electric performance, opening with Wild Thing, in the other structure within this building.
