Seventh Show/Third Run

Woke up in Santa Cruz and knew I had to go back to Stanford for the second show.
Went down to the Railroad Tracks that cross Hwy One just below Hwy 17 and stuck out my thumb.
Waited about 20 minutes and got a ride to the show.
Arrived at the Frost and just hung around until the show started, then walked counter-clockwise around the arena.
As I approached the front gate area, again. I observed a huge dude walking away from the ticket booth (which was in a roped off area) and duck under the rope.
I approached him and asked if he had any tickets.
He turned and asked in a gruff voice "How Many ?"
I replied "Just One" and he said "Oh, Okay. Here"
At which point he pulls a stack of about fifty tickets from his back pocket and hands me one, some other heads in the area observed this and immediately asked for theirs.
He gave out about three more tickets and then returned the stack to his pocket and proceed to wander around like "Oh, my, wish I could get in, too".
I danced up to the gate and presented my second Free Ticket and floated up the the left hand side of the stage.
At the end I needed to hitch back to Santa Cruz so I left after the first encore and had to listen to the Johnny B. Goode on the outside but I was so happy.
I got a ride back to Santa Cruz after about 2 hours.
And also found out that the boys were coming to Santa Cruz (Watsonville - Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds) the next month, unbelieveable.
The Sky Was Yellow And The Sun Was Blue
People Stopping Strangers Just To Shake Their Hand.

Correction to set list

Correction to Frost August 21, 1983 set list. It show's Bobby be Good as the encore, when Baby Blue was the encore, but since we were all burnt to a crisp after a rippin show that we could not leave. I kept yelling at the stage that we were still owed a Bobby be Good since we were shorted an encore at the May 13th 1983 show at the Geek in Bazzerkley. So that put's BobbybeGood as 2nd encore and the world was put back in balance since was had an encore shortage to that point. And be fore we could leave some guy broke out his silver jewelery to sell to the non mobile ones such as myself. as I said it was a rippin show and we were fried out. So I had to ask this gentleman merchant of silver one question. Do we get Ginzu stake knife's with the jewelery? So sad he said that his UPS shipment of stake knife's had not come in. Did I mention that this was a rippinshow

communal experience

I had the best ever communal experience at this show during the Wheel. At the rear there was a narrow ramp with a chain link fence along it. As the Wheel started I twirled in a circle up this ramp, but so as not to fall I held onto the fence as I turned. After a couple of revolutions I realized the both the people behind me going forward were doing the same thing, and the people coming at us were also doing the same thing. We were like cogs on two wheels, meeting. It was amazing to see the dawning looks of astonishment and joy on peoples faces as we realized what was happening! I thought, boy I sure hope the band on stage can see this, cause it's an amazing spontaneous example of our love for them...

Rythm Devils

During the drums portion of this show I got spooked by Mickey doing something with the BEAM. I got knocked off my feet. to me sounded like a jet airplane's engine. A engine in your own back yard type. Loud and out of the blue
