Today is June 15. On this date in Deadhead history:

- In 1967, the Grateful Dead played the Straight Theater in San Francisco.

- In 1968, the Grateful Dead played the Fillmore East in New York City.

- In 1976, the Grateful Dead played the Beacon Theater in New York City. The second set has a nice run of Stephen>NFA>D>Stella. The FOTD>Dancin>Wheel>Sugar Mag>Scarlet>SSDD is great as well.

- In 1985, the Grateful Dead played the Greek Theater in Berkeley, CA. Garcia's voice is pretty froggy, but the music is great. Good China>Rider, nice Terrapin and the transition from Space into The Wheel is beautiful.

- In 1990, the Grateful Dead played the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, CA. H>S>F to open the show and a nice Scarlet>Fire to open the second set. This is one of the better shows of the summer, and it was a pretty damn good summer tour.

- In 1992, the Grateful Dead played Giants Stadium in E. Rutherford, NJ.

- In 1993, the Grateful Dead played Freedom Hall in Louisville, KY.

- In 1995, the Grateful Dead played Franklin County Field in Highgate, VT. A total fucking disaster. A year after a really nice experience at Highgate (nice weather, casual atmosphere, decent show), tour rats decided that paying money for tickets was for suckers. Gates got ripped down, port-a-potties got knocked over (with people in them), nitrous tanks were everywhere, dogs running loose....a total nightmare.

cool topics abound...

I think bookmarking any particular topic that one doesn't want to navigate to is the way to go. I wouldn't call this one 'buried' in the website, but is equally accessible with every other cool topic. And also, as long as there are New Posts, it'll be towards the top of All Recent Posts section.

With the tech team as overwhelmes as it is at present...

I do not see any big departures from the existing structure for much of anything in the near future.

Meanwhile, feel free to bookmark the topic:

Hard to find this

So why is such a cool topic so buried on the website? Methinks this should be on the home page...just a suggestion

- In 1980, the Grateful Dead played the Spokane Coliseum in Spokane, WA.

- In 1987, the Grateful Dead played the County Fairgrounds in Ventura, CA.

- In 1991, the Grateful Dead played a fantastic show at RFK Stadium in Washington DC. The first set has a nice Big River>Maggie's and the second set is a masterpiece.

- In 1992, the Grateful Dead played a good show at Giants Stadium in E. Rutherford, NJ. Steve Miller sat in on the second half of the second set. Good Shakedown opener.

710 is still standing, but

710 is still standing, but they put up a big ass iron fence in front of the steps...

(not that I don't understand or appreciate the reasons why...)

the street kids of the Haight these days are a far cry from the old days if I do say so my damned self.

peace.
