awesome shows

I loved the dust bowl shows. great year, also a great run at alpine in 89' had a great time selling tequila shots for a buck. made alot of friends in those years when Jerry was at the top of his game and taught me how to listen to music.

Steal your cash right off your hand

Got busted by the heat (literally) going into the shows. A friend of mine was ashing a cigarette into an empty beer can. A dude way up on a cherry picker pointed at our car out of the thousands waiting and the cops rushed in. They said to turn and a drive back to the farm house where it looked like, "all them hippie scums be partying." They had set up a make shift court room. We had two pay two 90 dollars open container fines or have our car searched. Talk about a scam! We had been warned about the a-holes at the valley and had stashed everything in the trunk cept the ashtray can (didn't know it was contraband). What a mistake. They took half our money for a 5 day stay. With the kindness of other we were amply fed and impaired. Thanks for noting suckass Alpine cops and thanks for everything my brothers and sisters.

What a set of shows.

Kevin-n-Maine ---This place rocked we drove from Portland,Maine with mail order tickets for the whole tour ending in Maine. This was the longest stay I have ever had in a parking lot over a week we got thier before Dylan. The night before was Hank Williams Jr. It was a hot week and water was finnally delivered in milk trucks or you could shower for $3 from the neighbors little side business. I remember a sweet "Blackbird "by bobby one of the nights and of course all the new Foolish Heart songs. I had seats each night in the amputheater it was cool. Wow if I could only go back in time.

could have been?

my memories of the whole week are a bit hazy but small bits n pieces,
a bunch of us were there the night before for Dylan and Petty and stayed over in the parking-lot where we camped for the week.

On the way to Dylan, the night before in the middle of the night, driving around the farmland of southern Wisconsin,
we tried to camp out in a state park named Bong State Park- just for the name we had to stop. It was a real hot and dry summer and without thinking- first thing we did was
throw the firewood off the back of truck to start a fire. Bad move, within minutes we were surrounded by the Bong park rangers who were a bit aggressive and threatened to bust the lot of us. We finally calmed everybody down, put out the fire and went to a more secluded part of park and crashed.

At sunrise, all I remember was waking up and staring at the entire burned out park- it was clear they had had a big fire there which you couldn't see the night before- there must not have been a moon because it was pitch black outside. My first thought was, did we do this? and lets get outa here quick. We were laughing so hard we had tears. It sounds bad, but after long reflection- we decided we did not start the fire.

We made it in time for Dylan, he was great. Then it gets hazy.
I remember faces of people I met outside the concert grounds, it was a good time with lots of people, and lots of people looking for a cold drink, it was so hot.

I remember we did have an extra ticket and I gave it to a guy who was
very happy to have it. I think that I may have been the one who gave Fishman the extra tic for face value. I do remember being way upfront in front row?, I do not know how we got those tickets? But, the show was great, it was a good crowd once the show started.

I can't remember if my friends even made it in to the first show of four? but I had great time.

I wrote this mostly to say hey to Fishman who I think I may have known you. Glad you had good time.

Best week ever

Got to see Dylan the night before, got a ride to these shows from someone I met the day we left (Rick?). Had way too much way too fast (pretty much every night).

Very dry, hot and dusty for all four shows. I could not believe the amount of people in the area for the first show, Sunday 6-19-88. I swear there were 60,000 in the show but 100,000 people the area.

Dylan @ Alpine

Some of you got your years mixed up. Dylan and Petty & The Heartbreakers played before the 1986 run of Alpine shows. I know cuz I was at that show, but left the next day for London so I couldn't go to the Dead shows. Dylan did play before these 1988 GD shows, but he was already into the Never Ending Tour by then. I saw the Dead for the 87, 88, and 89 Alpine runs and had the greatest time.
