Attendees of this show
My first show, just a month after I graduated from college. I remember it so well.
I turned 19 at this show. Next time I got to go on Jerry's and my birthday was 8/1/82 Oklahoma Zoo Ampitheater.
That is was the same group I was used to hearing on American Beauty and Working Man's Dead.
Unbelievable, I believe that I'll just hop on this bus.
This was my third show.
All I could figure out was to stay on this bus because "something this wonderful can't last forever.'
But it did/does.
33 years ago... one of the best of the best years, the magical 73 shows of 73... today Jerry would be 64 years old. So in a way, one more elemental cycle is complete.
It's really wonderful to see the Dead's legacy continuing with this website and the great bands out there. Looking forward to Phil & Friends back in NYC again!!!
yeah, i meant to say that last year
Yeah, that bus is still going. The second night in Jersey City was a good one, too. I loved going to a few shows in a row - the old compare and contrast thing - actually just enjoying the amazing gifts of the Dead. This all just lives on forever.
Unless I went the night before. I know we went on Jerry's birthday
It was only the 2nd time I took LSD....but that's another story.
I just graduated HS! Hard to believe it was 35 yrs ago!
I remember the Morning Dew like it was yesterday..well, better because I don't remember yesterday all that well.
This was my first Dead show and I will never forget it. We were atop the third base dugout trippin' and with two tanks of gas and lovin' the tunes. Thanks to Flipper, Chris Cook, and Kenny Viola
See ya down the road,
If I remember correctly One of these two shows were a rainout. This was my first show and they opened with US Blues with lightning streaking across the skies. Show Stopped. Had to leave totally spaced for an interesting ride back to Brooklyn.
First Dead show of many - was only 13 years old but went with a friends older sister (who tuned me on to alot of great music !) The rest is history.
