I always forget that it was not only the first dance at the Fillmore but the Warlocks first appearance as the Grateful Dead.
You may be interested in my attempt to place it in the context of a life. I attended the Big Beat Acid Test the next night. A pretty big weekend for a 21 year old, soon to be a Stanford drop-out.

Fillmore Dec 10, 1965.

We played the first dance Bill Graham had at the Fillmore and almost nobody knows it. This is a chance to set the record straight.

My band, the Vipers, played first that night. We were not on the posters, and in the Chronicle the next day Ralph Gleason referred to us as the VIPs. One historian who has dug into it mentions us:

See the sentence with the link to Mount Rushmore and follow the link.

I'm in touch with the other 3 members from that night 47+ years ago. You can interview all of us if you want to fill in the details of how it happened.

I was in attendance for the three shows at Nassau Coliseum, which we call the "three days in the saddle."
The page for this show can not be brought up from page for the prior show 11/01/1979.
It shows the next show as Providence Civic Center - November 4, 1979.
For the 11/02/1979 page, the previous show is shown as Cumberland County Civic Center - May 13, 1979
and the next show is shown as Kiel Auditorium - December 9, 1979.

There is, indeed, an Ontario, CA. It even has a big airport! However, on 3/21-22/90, the Dead were in Hamilton, ON in Canada.

Judging from this comment I guess I'm becoming one of those G-d dang picky deadheads.

Many sources have this show being at Brendan Byrne Arena, I've come to discover that the full name was Brendan Byrne Arena at Meadowlands Sports Complex, East Rutherford, NJ.

Now there's a corporate name for the place (which can change every year) that screws up our venues listing, but we can deal with it. I like to stick with the venue's original name on more recent live shows.

I know you've heard it before, but,
Have a Jerry Christmas and a Happy New Weir!!!
