>- In 1980, the Grateful Dead played the Uptown Theater in Chicago, IL.

This was my second show and my brother's first. I still didn't get it until about a year later when I ran into the band on a rainy Saturday night in Paris. Mama, Mama, many worlds I've come since I first left home...

In 1987, the Grateful Dead

In 1987, the Grateful Dead played Town Park in Telluride, CO. Brokedown has a double start when Garcia forgets where he is.
