Morning Dew, Viola Lee Blues, Alligator, Dancin...
List is uncertain. This was based on a basic setlist I wrote down at the time. I definitely recall Morning Dew, Viola Lee Blues and Alligator. Dancin' is uncertain, and after 40 years, my memory is rusty.

What a glorious scene!

1967? I was a mere stripling of 16 then. I remember that show like it was yesterday. Me and my incipient-hippie friends decided to catch the Jefferson Airplane (who I was really into then, [as I am today]) and the Dead at a free outdoor concert, as the Dead were wont to give back in '67. We arrived about noon, when the free concert was suppose to begin. The Dead opened. I was intrigued by the look of this gang of ugly misfits. ;-D I was also intrigued by the music, though it would take a week for the music to sink in.

Man, what a scene!!!! Hippies as far as the eye could see, and as far as I was concerned it was heaven, for an incipient hippie!!! The gang I was with were all high-school buddies, and no one wanted to let on that the other was smoking weed! ;-) So I moved away from my friends, so I could catch a passing joint. I purposely avoided the passed jugs of Kool-Aid, though! ;-D

The Airplane were throwing out small buttons that were marked "Jefferson Airplane Loves You". I got one, but lost it years ago. :-(

Man, what glorious memories!

place ville marie show

I was intrigued by the Jefferson Airplane and had seen them in Vancouver BC I had never seen the Dead but was diggin' to do so. I was 16 also and visiting for the summer to go to expo 67. Man, I said what an odd looking bunch and the kid on guitar looks like some skinny gal.
The music started and I thought gee, never heard anything quite like this it goes on and on and meanders all over how strange, but, how interesting Hmm?
Someone passes a joint, bingo, hey now the music sounds very interesting and imaginative and....the rest is history. 150 shows in total over the bands whole history.
thanks

Man my grandmother was lucky!!!! She was living in Montréal at the time and went to most of the pavilions during some time that summer (don't know the exact date) with some of her friends and remembers walking by a spot with lots of people and a band playing (possibly Grateful Dead or the Airplane???) Damn if only I was born 43 years previous (born in 1991) I would have made it my mission to attend the 6th of August 1967 it sucks being born in the 90's nothing exciting or revolutionary is happening.
