such a different scene

I know I was only a newby follower at the time of only 10 years since my first show, but during that time, the scene had massively changed. I knew we were going to have to take a break from everything for a while. (Little did we know...)

After the show, when we were out in the parking lot, someone stuck a bottle under someone else's tire. The bottle exploded when it was run over. Glass went everywhere. My Sister-in-law and I had little pieces of glass all over our bodies (thank God it didn't get into anyone's eyes!).

My husband ended up with a huge gash across his left thigh. At first we thought it would be ok, but it wouldn't stop bleeding. We tried to find first aid, but no one would help us. We finally just got in the car and sat in the normal line to get out of the parking lot. It probably took us about an hour and a half to get out and get over to the hospital.

Once at the hospital, we assumed they would take him fairly quickly since he was STILL bleeding. Nope. They just kept giving us bandages to sop up the blood. His name was finally called at about 4am. Needless to say, he was very weak by then.

The doctor cleaned him up, gave him stitches and then (get this...) wanted to turn him into the cops for being in a knife fight!!!! He actually had to bring the doctor out to see us so he could see the little glass pricks all over our bodies.

Would you believe, we still have the old clunker car we had then (we use it for junky stuff), and there are still blood stains all over the seats from that night.

Bruce

Anyone there remember Garica wearing a light blue shirt and white pants this day?
Show gets a bad rap due to the whole 95 drama and lightning bolt hitting the tree, but in case anyone cares there were no deaths due to that strike.

One of my favorite shows as far as song selections go, and a pretty underrated show IMHO, even for 95.
Days Between was as dark as it ever got.

was goooood. Bruce was his usual great self.
The uptempo FOTD was nice.
BMR - Perfect next to the Anacostia River; and a breakout!

I did not realize the power

I did not realize the power of the GD's timing until this show. I only saw a handful of shows, so I'm grateful for every live note I heard. This was a great show, in my limited experience. My epiphany that I was a deadhead and loved the band was kinda cemented by the lightning strike. It paralleled the way my soul was stricken by my Love for them, that night.

one more worthless comment

After Sat Night, the big screens had this awesome cartoon with this big guy driving a motorcycle with the caption:
D.C. DEAD.

Spoke volumes to me. Dead always seemed to play well there. Of course we are talking about the land of Joe Gibbs now!!!!!

Cheers!

Last one for me

I was right up front for Dylan and the first set. Did anybody get Dylan's set list? Did he play Joey? Anyway, FOTD was faster than usual, which was fun. Saint>New Speedway was really good, I was hanging with the spinnies by that point. For some reason for trhe second set I felt compelled to observe from above as opposed to being down on the field. I guess I wanted perspective. Black Muddy was the last live dead song I heard. Appropriate, and I'm good with that. RIP Jer, I love you and miss your playing. Thanks for the great bus ride and for letting us record!

Eternal Consciousness Enjoyin the Ride,

Grateful some had positive experience

Tried out the scene with my daughter and caught a vibe from the police I didn't feel safe with.....left early but am grateful for the time there that was positive.

Some good things in this show

Overall, this would be a happy 3-star show because stadium shows are just big, chaotic noisefests, and you can't necessarily expect too much either way. But here and there, something really good happens.

This was my final Dead show, and it ended with a beautiful "Black Muddy River." But more significantly, I remember "New Speedway" being pretty cool. And the "Days Between" at this show stands out as probably the single most riveting moment of any Daed show I ever attended. Just an amazing version. Jerry totally held the entire stadium for the whole slow, cryptic, elegant song.

It was also nice to have Hornsby on the grand piano.

A good show for me to end on.

My First show in 15 years

Great to see the Dead, as I stopped seeing them in 1980. From what I remember we where laughing so hard during the first set, I was crying laughing all about the people we where seeing on the field during the first set, some of which just over done there partying. We also ate somthing that made us laugh. As far as the band, I thought they where flat. Jerry was laid back, not too much energy. Although the second set opened with Aiki-Aiko which inspired me to go to the front of the stage. Made it to about 10 row, until the show ended. I remember the Dead leaving the stage as they had to walk near some of us fans as we all where leaving.

All things considered, was a fun time. I miss the band and Jerry G. Now I really like bluegrass. Hot Tuna etc.

Relistening on the 13th anniversary

I figured that I'd re-listen to this one today-- exactly 13 years after the fact. This was my final show and it was fun. Relistening now, it just sounds like a good ol' time.

God Bless the Grateful Dead.
