Checked the Falls out. Civic Center was very close.

We are everywhere

The local TV news did a 'live special report' showing hundreds of Dead Heads on the roof of the Civic Center. Maybe that's why we never went back there...

I was one on the roof

Damn. I forgot about the roof until I read the last post. They gave Dead Heads something to climb and we had to climb it.

I remember the roof! That

I remember the roof! That was fun. They had to kick everyone off more than once.
And the security going into the show was by far the best of any show I've ever been to... no search for contraband or patdowns at all. They just took your ticket. Totally cool. I wonder if maybe it was their first rock concert.

I have heard that the place is now an Indian Casino.

Loved this show although it doesn't seem to be a favorite. Strange venue..good energy from the get go.
During the second set, I made my way up close (floor was GA).
I remember Weir finishing Man Smart and walking offstage for some reason...... the Jam continued and then Jerry started playing the opening to Eyes and Bob runs back onstage. I was under the impression he left the stage for break.
I remember vividly looking at Jerry (I was VERY close). I had this big smile on my face.
Jerry looked right at me and grinned.

The Roof Jam

Yes, yes, the roof was a trip; people were climbing it, the building was like an airplane hanger/ice rink shape and if I remember correctly during drums and space the people on the roof were having their own jam session. I also remember a bunch of couples getting married during the break, and at least one of the brides was wearing a wedding dress. One of my favorite shows. I missed my bus home that night and wound up sleeping by The Falls, the police were so cool, they knew I was there and actually kept an eye on me; and yes the security at the show were awesome too. Very magical night had by all.

Festival seating

Cool stuff me and my buddy Elphee were like 5 rows back. No seats on the floor. Good time. Roof scene was pretty hysterical. Bunch of tripping fools freaking out the locals.

Soooo high

we almost touched the sky!

People were really gleaming the cube for that show. The merry pranksters had nothing on us. People were beating on the iron pipes of the bleachers under us during drums and space.

Nice eyes into drums and very nice Peter out of space

Over the edge

First time to the falls. Drove up from MA and met my friend Aimee who drove from OH. Super chill scene, folks were tossing extra tickets as they went in the door. Nice vibe and fun under the bleachers!
