Yes, it was the first of many! Had to climb the hill and walk in over the back fence, since it was sold out and parked in.
being poor students,, had no beer money and a full cooler in the car,, so snuck out and back in again,,,,,fine lovelight,,test piolates schreachin!!!!!!
Wrong post for '85 - this must be the year of the fence-walkers.
My brother and I drove our motorcycle from Pomona out to Irvine Meadows without tickets or a clue of what to expect. As we were walking around the parking lot a guy just walked up to us and gave us 2 tickets - bless that sweet brother's soul! He absolutely refused to take any money! I think it was purple turtles we did that night and there was no turning back! We were bug eyed and gasping for breath at the end of the show with no idea how we were gonna ride back to Pomona.
Outta the blue we ran into some friends - we had no idea they were into the Dead - and they kindly let us crash in their motel room that night. The following night we waded through the swamp of the Lion Safari Park and scaled the fence! The rest is history.
Bless the Dead and all the Heads for the brilliant years that followed.
I seem to recall that in the second set that Terrapin Station was abbreviated when Jerry took his guitar off and walked offstage at the end of the Lady With a Fan section. That's when the rest of the band started playing some blues number I didn't know but I guess is Don't Need Love. Maybe it was a different show I'm thinking of??
