My first show as well....drove 200 miles to get tix earlier that month. We were about 8th in line at 2:30 in the morning, but didn't have "big city" ways and people kept butting in line to the point that we were the first people to be informed it was a sellout! (We saw scalpers walking away with stacks of tix 5 inches thick.) We befriended a local hippie and he helped us get tix the next day from a hotel. I was so excited I fell asleep at the show....remembering the days when the Chicago audience would yell at people who were dancing to "siddown!"

My first show ! Whew .. I was in LOVE !

My friends said "REALLY ! There is NOTHING like a Grateful dead show".. I was like..... hmmmmmmm ... I GOTTA SEE THIS !
I was 26 ...the evening was full of cloudy dreams unreal...Full of tastes no tongue can know, and lights no eyes can see... and I heard tunes.. When there was no ear to hear.
Since that night in Chicago ... My life was forever changed for the better .... I am forever Grateful.

Please do random acts of kindness !

Boy I just remember Donna Jean dancing and swaying during the Wheel. It was love at first sight. That was the day I jumped on the bus and I've been there ever since. Its been well worth it. This bus makes life alot easier. Thanks guys and gals.

My first show's also.

I saw them three nights. They were my first Dead shows. Driving down LSD (Lake Shore Drive) to see them on something that put us in just the right state of mind. I'll never forget my first shows. Incredible experience. It pretty much changed my life.
