Attendees of this show
Having heard of the Dead from John Sinclair, while living in Detriot
at the Artist Workshop. This Alaskan kid (17 yr. old) had hitch
hiked to the Haight from Detriot and was crashing in golden gate
park. The diggers would give out free food in the panhandle and
the street rumor had it that there was music with the food down
in the panhandle park. It seems that the music (Dead) had just
sorta showed up and the people were groovin' to it. Heard the band was playing at the Longshoreman's later that night, and
was determined to go to the later show too. Got turned on to some of Owsley's "White Lightning" tabs in the panhandle and
the rest is sorta a blur.......
Does anyone know if this show on April 9, 1967 was the only time the Dead played in the panhandle?
