Nice full bar out in the concession area.

This was a hot show in a cool venue. It was an outdoor clay tennis court stadium. The only bad part for me was we were recording with a Sony TCD-5M and 441 mikes up real close and though the tapes came out smokin' we got clay on all our equipment. A great Shakedown to start it off and just rippin' all the way through. Definitely worth listening to. I loved being able to drink Tanqueray and tonics as opposed to stadium beers.

I meant Jack Straw above....

......but was focused on that great Shakedown. I guess that is what happens when you go to so many GD shows. LOL. Peace.

dougles, you're right

Always nice to enjoy a refreshing "Tank & tonic" on a hot summers eve!
A cool place for a show. The heads were very systematic about removing the folding chairs behind the board for some extra dance space.
I remember the back drop for the stage that night was the
crews' semi-trucks all lined up. Which, they lit up during guessed it, "Truckin'"

Fun Show

My wife's 1st show (she only saw a couple more at Compton Terrace) and it was awesome - moving the chairs on the clay court, hot as hell, the police helicopter shining the spot on the whole crowd during drums (too bad not during truckin), 1st spoonful I had heard (many shows prior) live, great friends, fun venue - I loved it.

Frankie the Flea's 1st Show

Took a friend of mine, "Frankie the Flea", to this show. His 1st Dead show. Wonderful venue....As we were wandering around behind the stage before the show, we saw Garcia come riding up in a limo. He was all smiles, Later, as the Boys came out and started into Jack Straw, I suddenly saw Frankie leaped over the railing onto the tennis court, and broke into dance. Everyone was standing up, and folding up their chairs and placing them up against the wall, to open a up the court for a Swell Dance Concert! Good times had by all. Frankie the Flea was sold on the Dead that night.

I had been to many rock

I had been to many rock concerts but my first Dead show. Almost late because we did not know about the strange time zones in Indiana. Drove for four hours with no tix and scored some comp tix from a guy for the same price as waiting in line for hours at the ticket window. Great seats in front (but didn't sit the whole show).Truly a magical experience and was never the same afterward. Stayed at the inn of Indianopolis and cruised the floors after the show all hours of the night and met many interesting characters in various rooms. Wonderful party. First time I met "Don Juan" R.I.P.

Very Cool Venue

It was very hot that day and I danced so hard, I almost got heat stroke. This was probably the last smaller venue outdoor show I saw. This micro-tour for me was a lot of fun.

Moved back from colorado on

Moved back from colorado on april 15th, was happy to be inbetween jobsand was planning for 4 shows this summer. John and I went to this together. We partied and walked around IUPUI for awhile . The park off West St. near the capital building is perfect for deadheads. Near the river, green grass, large hardwood trees, a small venue.hometown with my best freind. WE are still freinds today even though he lives in indy, and i live in florida.Best songs for me, Dupree's ( I later had a cat by this name) Shakedown, and Playin..I am also a huge Drumz/ space kind of guy,these were memorable. Every time I'm in downtown indy, this is where i remember.. We head to Alpine next.

Grate Night

What a night, I grew up 45 miles west of Indy, on this night a grate friends parents were on vacation. We listened to The dead all day, drove to the show and hungout early in the park. If you were in Military park, well you know what was happening there. First time a friend had turned on which made it even more special. Show was fantastic I will never forget the opening chords of Shakedown and it was on. We were all over the venue. After show at I believe at a Howard Johnsons we met the strange characters as mentioned above. We probably were some of those folks as we wandered from room to room floor to floor it was totally rock n roll. Ended up back at the friends house playing pool,partying twenty minutes home 10 or so big time partiers came by to see how the show went. Watched a beautiful sunrise listening to Bob Marley. A very vivid memory, 21 was a good age.
