big party crowd

a big group of us frat guys drove up from BAMA for the show and all stayed at 1 bros house. great family and great show. we all got wasted and seperated during show, but managed to all make it home safe together. Casey horns were a trip.

Loved this one, Casey was great. This was the first time I got up front. My friends and I were about 10-15 ft from the stage for Steve Miller and the entire first set. That was great. It was a beautiful day, I thought Jerry actually looked good and he looked happy. I remember all the boys smiling and having a good-old time up on stage. I really miss the live music and the energy, I'll never forget those days.

Dug that train horn (not a whistle, in my recollection) at this and a few other shows in that time frame, and, although I've never been a fan of the particularly tune (overplayed on FM and one of the few tunes with which nonbelievers are familiar), Casey Jones, I find the Shenandoah space more memorable. It was a song that the Nuns forced us to memorize, but for some reason, despite their despotism, I always liked it. Also, I always found Jerry's space noodlings intriging, especially when it turned out to be sneakily more than just noodling.

The Horn!

Our toyota van blew up after Charlotte and we were stuck in a hotel along I-95. I thought I was going to miss yet another RFK. Then Dave (my tour partner) told me to keep going and he would wait for the repairs and catch up where ever that may be. I put my pack on and headed over to a gas station where heads had been fueling up all day. I hopped in a 65' VW transport carrying a sign stating "we need pot". I traded for a ride to D.C. As we entered D.C. once again I was in a van that blew up! This time we were close, so close we called AAA and had them tow us into the lot! Everyone cheered as we sat on the roof being towed in. The show wasn't the best but the whistle and Casey that followed was beautiful. After the Casey I turned around and there was Dave standing right behind me smiling. His parents drove from Ohio in their 85' westfalia to the hotel along I-95, gave him their ride, rented a car and drove home! Unbelievably cool parents. So we finished the summer in style! Thanks to Dave, his parents, and Jerry for the Casey Jones. That trip was so good I decided to name my black lab Casey Jones a few years later and it turns out he is as cool as that trip was!

My Wife's only show.

I picked her up with a van full of 'heads at 2 am in East Flatbush. Let me tell you, not the way to meet your girlfriend's father. This was my 6th show of the year and my last as it turned out - the horn and Casey Jones and the Stage Lights were AWESOME!!! This show cost her a job a couple years later when some racist Law Firm Partner told her she wouldn't know anything about a Dead show (because she's black) - naturally she replied, "actually, I caught this great show a couple years ago with my boyfriend where they broke out Casey Jones for the first time in years". Bastard was embarassed as hell. All good we're married and happy and I'm sure he's still an ass.

Out of ALL of the shows that

Out of ALL of the shows that I attended, this was THE BEST SHOW I had ever been to! When they blew the train horn, everybody was freakin' out! We did get a copy of the show from a taper dude. My children were 6 & 3 at the time and they were always asking for us to .." Play the choo-choo train song mommy"... :) I love it!!

Long drive...

We weren't able to get into the show but we could hear it from where we were. Met a lot of kind folks and had a grateful time. The police showed up early in the AM with flatbeds as a gentle reminder, "You don't have to go home, but you can't stay here" which we abided by. Took a while to find the car and even longer to find our way out of DC. Hard to read a map when you...well you know. Anyway...had a fantastic time and I wouldn't have missed it.
