Most Cosmic Venue EVER
Let's face it, some venues had a lot more charisma than others -- and still do. Red Rocks probably tops a lot of lists when it comes to personal Grateful Dead power spots -- but what amazing places haven't we heard enough about?
without a doubt veneta 82
What about Starlight in KC? pretty cool venue, small with towers on each side of a copper awning with comedy and tragedy on the face of the towers. early 80's shows, on our tapes we called one reckless and hot....because it was reckless and hot! I remember the boys starting good lovin and me starting to dance and leaving my body until the song was over and I'm on the other side of the venue!

Downs run only 40 min from my home Santa Clara Pueblo Reservation, magic shows both yrs. old hippies frm the various mountain havens ,Ojo Sarco,Dixon, Taos mountains,all those burnouts from back at the old communes up there in the Sangre de Cristos. and alot of my native brothers and sisters from the diffrnet rezes all16 of em within a 2 hrs, drive Looks like rain , while it rained ,brilliant colors in the fading daylt. Autzen 94, great run ,very mellow vibes by were we camped by the railrd tracks across the river frm the main prking lot, Frisbee area roped off in a huge grassy area,great people , hot weather n sizzlin doses. all nite bash. veneta 96 furthur fest cool vibes n zero securiy,except for those 2 OLD Hippy dudes in security t shirts, magic glowing sunsets n soft meelow vibes in the evening, thanks to those 3 girls who piked me up while i was hitchiking to San Francisco, forgot ur names, but still have the pics, oh yeah, how were yhose phish shows in red rocks?
That picture posted huge!!! Ha ha!!
The place was so cool!!!
1983 great shows all year, but for all around great vibe the hult center-eugene ore. gotta say my favorite though was the downs of santa fe-wavy gravy welcoming us all as we pulled into the campsite the night before the shows, dancing in the rain, then a beautiful rainbow emerges behind the boys as the rain comes to a stop. phil wearing a huge sombrero and stepping to the mike for harmonies on cold rain and snow-first time i'd seen him sing in a long time. what a tour though-park west-spent the night in utah in a cave up in the hills-one more labor day night. still looking for cd's and any related merchendise (stickers, shirts, et.) from 1983. any help would be greatly appreciated. heading down to charlottesville in 2 days-looking forward to seeing the boys with warren
Something happened to me in Saratoga.
Hard to top Redrocks as far as being in a venue,, but when the whole town of Telleride became a venue,, well you just had ta be there,,
But the Ultimate Venue, was never played (there are a few others) by The Grateful Dead but I would have to say Sedona, AZ at the top of Schnebly Hill Rd. was the greatest venue of all time by far bar none.
Ok, so maybe where they played, and I saw, I would say, right now, there is no doubt about The Greek....so close to the Redwoods you could smell them in the rain. So I agree with UncleJon
I go Greek here!
Will you come with me? Once in awhile you can get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right!
