depended on...

how much I drank before the show, strategically where I was during the show...but I loved to encounter all the twirl girlz so toasted in the halls and the jammin boys, so thin and in kilts...only during pee breaks do you get such entertainment. I'd serpentine through them and listen to the bells on their ankles. But a slow and depressing LRRooster was a sure break, space for me, Corrina, Way-Home in the end days....

Done in by a burrito

Quite a few shows where I didn't go at all, but was too far down front to fight the crowd to the peeline.

Used to do my fair share of parking lot shopping and munching on parking lot food. Must have been something in those damn burritos - or undercooked chicken or something at a Shoreline show that also sent me running. You know my poor bowels will "not fade away."

Donna, we will always love ya, but there were some nights where you could have given Yoko Ono a run for the money. That was usually my time for a beer run.

This is easy: anything with with Bobby's Slide!!

Sorry Bobby, love ya bro, but the slide's gotta go! Red Rooster sent me scurryin' for the pisser every time.

Here's a funny related story. New years '89. Bought a veggie burrito in the parkin' lot before the show. Things went well for awhile and then ..... the rumbing started in the middle of the first set. Had to do the quick step half step and barely made it on time. Sittin' there in Limbo and I hear the first strains of "Big Boss Man". Hadn't heard that in years. With Bonnie Raitt on slide no less. Curses, I'm trapped in here! Let's just say the timing wasn't all that good but I managed to finish up in time to dance out the last half of the song!

Because it would still be playing when I got back. I liked drums hated space.

Gr8ful says when you hear the first notes of Don't Ease, Deal, or Music Never Stopped, it's a beeline to the peeline and then up to the counter for another 90 Shilling. 2nd set busters were Throwing Stones, Victim or the Crime, any Brent tune, and of course Drumz/Space.

Pee breaks

I always went between sets if for no other reason than to encounter different people than those around me while the show was on. I tried to never go during the show unless it was an emergency, which by definition pretty much ruled out any sort of planning. Frankly, I'm astounded that so many actually decided to consciously think this through...

Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.

No More Day JObs

OK--they usually played this song as an encore. Man, it seemed like every hot show Jerry would play this song as an encore. This song sent me out early a couple of times. Now that I listen to it years later the boys could play this song real rocking. Still hate it. I mean, Richmond '85--GLORIA!!!! then Jerry plays day Job. AAAARRRRGGGHHH!!!

Day Job ruined alot of smiles in my time. You know, I used to love Touch Of grey until '87. Seemed like they played it every other night. I know they played it on every stop that year. The thing aboput that album was that it was great that the boys got their just rewards but it brought alot of shit to the scene.

I'd stay thru Space

Victim or the Crime

Walkin Blues

I always found drums/space interesting enough to listen to, but I love weird experimental stuff more than the avg head I guess.
