This was another great show: Sugar Mag > Scarlet Begonias. Seamless transition!
I originally had no plans to attend Alpine Valley in '89 until someone I knew had 2 tickets available for this night only and the morning before the show who was unable to attend, I talked my buddy into taking a half day off work and we immediately got on the road from Grand Rapids, MI. With approximately a 6 hour drive, we got on the road and arrived at the venue a couple hours before showtime. I remember that it rained the whole time.
Having skipped Alpine 88 and having so much fun in 86 and 87, I wasn't prepared for how they lot had been totally fenced in and the enormous oversold crowd. Despite the rain, vending was in full force as were the anti-vendors who were busting people with shirts, veggie burritos ect ect. I knew that they had cool bright new stage backdrops from the Shoreline Summer Solstace Pay-Per-View but was suprised that they added video screens to Alpine.
Musically the show was a winner from start to finish. Perhaps someday the video from this night will surface.
This was my "birth show," and I remember sliding down the "mud-slide" with a trash bag on! I was only 10 years old, but I've been a deadhead ever since this show, and I always will be.
remember when quinn the eskimo played and some of us knew Dylan was in chi thought he might stop by it was a nice day dream
my favorite part about this show, no new material!! This seemed like the first show in ages where there was no new material played. That made it a solid show for me.
Oh yes, I remember it rained the whole time, I also drove back and forth from Chicago each day, because those shows were in the middle of the week and I had to work. But it was so worth it.
Such a long, long time to be gone, and a short time to be there.
I had a miracle, sitting in the Memorial Union in Madison a friend showed up with 3 sheets for a C and 2 spare tickets for free...the rest is a smoking crater in my mind! The second set was too cool. Got puddled at the show during drumssss......wwwwwoooooooooooooooooo

I can't remember but wasn't this the first day of rain? The show the day before was clear and I remember us driving in early before the shows started to a full moon. I think I'm going to go watch the film here in L.A. :)
My friends who attended all three shows told us all about how the first days weather was picture perfect and the third night was like a monsoon. This middle night was an on and off drizzle as far as I remember. We were on the lawn up front. I remember being glad that I had a dry set of cloths for the 6 hour drive home afterwards. We were gluttons for punishment back then, but the show was well worth it.
Looking forward to the theatrical showing!
