A bad sign...

New Stuff

@ the time i was very disappointed w/ the new material!! I also had an anxiety attack @ this show and stopped smoking weed for a very long time!! I have a audience tape of this show and during the Iko the crowd erupt's during Jerry's trumpet solo! It was the music and the sight of a little girl dancing on stage be cause Barney was there!! The Moment still gives me Chill's

I've been waiting for solid evidence that Barney was on stage. I thought everyone was on the same high as me. Pretty good show 1st set though

yeah Barney was playing in Phil's spot,as Phil hid behiind his stack---I was right there on the side almost next to the stage---I cant believe I remember this---and I believe those were Phils kids dancing on stage-----

What do you get when you dance to Iko with your eyes closed? You surely don't get to see Barney! People were talking about it afterward, and I had no idea, my eyes were closed the whole time.

Eternal Consciousness Enjoyin the Ride,

My Birhtday

This was my 25th Birthday and basically a very forgettable show. First set was good but way to much new stuff for one evening.

Nothing to tell now, let the words be yours I am done with mine

First Dead Show

April Fool's Show at the Coliseum, my first show! The event was electric, even the rotunda was decorated in tie-dye. I had been to the Coliseum for hockey games (Stanley Cup Playoffs), the circus and other concerts but none seem to compare to the energy in the building this night. Of all the shows I have attended, this one will alwys be special.

Decided to Never Go to a Grateful Dead show again!!!

First set was fun. Then it got ugly! Wasn't feelin' too good.
The company I was with was not too fun to be with.
After "Barney Aiko", which was funny, I was really dissappointed with the rest of the show. Then the electrical storm with MAD thunder, after the show. Came home to my shower door spontaneously exploded, with glass all the bathroom floor. Extremely low pressure system moved through, which was my only "physical" explanation of what happened. Said I'd never go back to a Grateful Dead show and never did.
I' ve been having fun at Further shows beyond belief, recently, which is making up for that bad time I had on April Fools "93"
