I had a blast, but the no water thing kicked my ass in the end!
It was Scarlet Begonias. I had to sit down. I have not been so powerfully sadly moved since I heard Black Muddy River from Chicago in 95. Oh yeah, I bought the CD of the nights show and what a story that turned into. I just so love the way the magic happens. There was alot of magical momments this night. The Dead is now my second favorite band of all time. Grateful Dead is number one of course.
Me and my husband had an AWESOME time haven't had fun like that since Jerry was with us!!!! Shakedown was great we got to the lot about 3:45, Got some cool stuff, ate the world's greatest grilled cheeses, drank some beer, met some people. Thanx to the guy in front of us for begining of first set for "sharing his kindness". My husband called three songs before we got there Cosmic Charlie, Shakedown, and Fire on the mtn. I didn't call it but Scarlet Begonias brought a tear to my eye. Hope they tour again next yr. Also really want to get to Rothbury!!!! Enjoy next weekend!!!!!!
Had a blast there last night.
The pre-show lot scene was great. Got there at 5 and the Shakedown smokin'. The venue was intimate and sound was good. The boys really ripped it up opening with bertha and an epic Caution. Jeff Chimenti was absolutly Awesome! One sad highlight of the second set was the beginning of Sugar Mag, where the spotlights were on each member, except Warren was back by his amps and Jerry's spot was empty. What A Great Show.
we can't drink it all ourselves so stop by for a beer...bring cool stuff to trade :)
Whats up with pre-show activities? A small group of us are heading to lot early......Any ideas or recent news? Partying or what?
Lets rock this place!!!!!
If anyones to meet before the show Me and a couple of other people will be meeting at my friend Joe's house right down the street to get ready for the show. We will be at 4626 w. 173rd street in Lawndale, Ca. 90260. We will be up alley behind the winnersnitchell all the way down to the rail road tracks and up on the 2nd floor just yell for Trent or Joe. It's like 10-15 min away from the forum so we will have pleanty of time to get there with out the fuzz.
