I think this was billed as "The War Moratorium" concert. I believe it was Quicksilver, The Airplane and the Dead. Maybe it was Big Brother instead of Quicksilver but it was incredible. I was staying at a friends flat next to the Airplane house on Fulton and when I got up to ride my motorcycle back home to LA, Marty Balin was just coming in. We talked briefly and I hit the road.

"Moratorium tomorrow - Dead, Airplane & Quicksilver at Winterland. Have $2.50 saved. So far."
Wednesday evening show, Quicksilver, Airplane, then the Dead.
WOW! This was one of two Moratorium shows that I attended that were held after marches to stop the Vietnam war. Opened my eyes to the vast possibilities of music taking you along for the ride. Drove up from Santa Cruz and back along Hwy 1 with the Dead playing on in my head. Priceless.
Entire first set is SMOKING.
