Wrong city: The page for this show says they played The Cheetah in Santa Monica on this date. There were at least two Cheetah clubs in the country and on 6/12/67 they most likely played The Cheetah in New York City. There's a "recently discovered" poster for this show (supposedly from the "first roadie of the GD") at that gives the address as 53rd & Bdwy - this is NYC. This also makes sense since the previous show was in NYC at the Cafe au Go-Go.

I'm positive that the boys did Satisfaction at this show. It was my girlfriends first show. She was a UCLA student living on campus at the time. I met her in her dorm room. She had borrowed a bunch of Dead studio albums so that she would know what to expect. I told her that it wasn't going to work.

She also didn't understand why I wanted to get to Pauley Pavillion early. She then learned about the show before the show. The reason that I remember Satisfaction is that she was amazed that they were doing another bands song as part of the encore. Like I said, it was her first show.

There were many more after. We were married for 23 years and our oldest daughters middle name is Cassidy. Obviously, after a weekend at Ventura and New Years Eve that year, she got it.

Paul Ossian Donna sang a Loretta Lynn cover of "You Ain't Woman Enough To Take my Man" This show seemed to be 4-6 hours long, Was it just tuning?

I verified with another attendee that the Dead played "dancing in the streets" second set.

I believe that the set started with Doggone. I was in the first row and it certainly WAS NOT scarlet begonias.

How about including Bruce?

He's still kickin it and was a part of the Grateful Dead. It would be nice to acknowledge that here.

Weird Date Errors

Hey everyone,

You might notice that some of the errors in this thread have been here a while without being tended to. These remain because they are unfixable at the moment. We have a rampant "date bug", as I call it. What it does is display show dates in an odd way. For example, sometimes you will see two shows listed with the same date or a show that is listed as being on the wrong day entirely. Going in and editing the date to be correct will not stick... but you can see the correct date change in the 'title' of the page... the place on your browser window that lists what the page is called. For now, that is the only place the correct date shows. Everywhere else, it displays incorrectly. We are trying to figure it out, and when we do, I will be able to delete the posts referring to these date display errors.

Just so you guys know I'm not ignoring you.
