There's nothing like a Grateful Dead show

My University of Tampa bro', Bruce from NJ, gave me a ticket for Christmas. I owe you still, Bruce, my brother. I danced my way down to as close to front center as possible and had a grateful time. I met fellow UT student, Julie S. chilling in the hallway. That's when I learned that a third of a GD show takes place in the hallway. Bruce and I tried to track down the band after the show. We deduced that they were staying at the downtown Tampa Hilton, which was directly across the Hillsborough River from our UT dorm, Rivershore Tower. Bruce wanted to meet the band, so we canvassed every floor until the tell-tale odor of partying, slightly mellowed by the cover-up fragrance of patchouli and strawberry incense alerted us to the possible location of the band's floor. Bruce deduced which door was the most probable location of Jerry and the rest of the band and knocked on the door. Only the muffled sounds of things being hastily moved gave indication that anyone was in that room. Finally, after several minutes, an affiliate opened the door asking, "What do you want"? "We want to party with Jerry and the band", said Bruce. "Jerry's not here and you guys shouldn't be knocking on these doors trying to find him, guys"! Hey, we tried. Bruce, I miss you, man.
Peace

my first concert!

What I remember most was euphoria, and how transformative it was for me to find this scene at a time in life when I was was discovering who I am. Me and my girlfriend wiggled to the front and two boys we never saw again put us on their shoulders and we danced our joy. I went to a few other shows over the years but never became a full deadhead (sorry), but I have always been a hippie at heart. Great memories with this band and their music.
