No show in Seattle on

No show in Seattle on Saturday, 8/28/82. The one Seattle show was Sunday evening, 8/29/82. I don't know; maybe it was the roses!

Very true!

I was at both shows and I definitely remember the driving all night from Veneta experience. There was a heaven-to-hell quality about that weekend: from sleeping under the stars in Veneta to holing up in some Holiday Inn or some such trying to get rested for the show. From the idyllic scene and perfect weather at the Country Fairgrounds to platoons of fairly hostile mounted police herding the Heads amid grey, overcast weather. I remember this as the only venue I ever attended where, per the language on the ticket, you couldn't even bring a purse into the hall.

Needless to say I really don't remember a darn thing about this show other than the attendant bad vibes. I think I drove straight through from Seattle to Oakland the next day just to get out of there.

It's all coming back to me now.

The dates threw me for a loop....Thanks marye for clearing it up for me.

Gone are the days we stopped to decide........where we should go......we just ride.

i just GOT this show yesterday

the jam out of he's gone is worth tracking down, and the opening jack straw booms.

I like your story, marye. did that contribute to the GD skipping Seattle from 83-94? 8/27/83 is hot, but then they were mia for a long time (except for Tacoma once).

probably not

I've heard other people really praise this show. Subjectively, I had a bad experience. But Veneta was so my kind of show that anything else would have been something of a comedown, most likely.
