Cool setlist which I really enjoyed hearing material from the newest album. Band was having fun with it too!
Some girl inbetween sets asked me to buy her beer and gave me
a one hundred dollar bill! I bought her beer and had her change
but she had dissapeared looked for her for about 20 min. Just
wanted to tell her sorry I couldnt find her. Only at a Grateful
I recall a massive Birdsong from this show & the awesome battle between Gumby & Godzilla. The floor was packed durring the break & at one point one of those 6 foot tall blow-up Godzillas popped up above the crowd. Then from the other side of the floor, a six foot blow-up Gumby appeared - the crowd roared and the two headed towards each other thanks to the well tuned crowd. When they met in the middle the crowd yelled even louder - both fighters clashing heroically - then they were pulled below the crowd amidst the battle - the Arena went quiet & then Gumby popped up from the crowd to the roaring approval of all. Only at a Grateful Dead show....
Maybe just coincidental, but I'm fairly certain that I witnessed these same shenanigans however it was outdoors. Like Ventura or Shoreline possibly. Then again, it has been many years and many shows ago. All a blast anyway. Wish I could do it all again . FUN, FUN, FUN.
