San Antonio Civic Center Arena - February 21, 1970
February 21, 1970
Anyone remember the last song
I was at this show. The last song was Turn On Your Lovelight featuring Pig Pen at the height of his powers. The house lights came on as soon as he sang “Turn On Your lovelight” a very impressive ending to a great dead set. Other songs included Dark Star, St. Stephen, The Other One, the Eleven, etc. It was a classic electric acid rock dead experience, along the lines of their Live Dead double LP and Two From Vault setlist. Although the dead had already recorded Working Man’s Dead before this show and were already playing acoustic material at other shows in early 1970, they included none of that material at this show. Tom Constantine was still in the lineup at that time. It was such a life changing experience that I still remember this as one of the most meaningful concerts I have ever attended.
