We overslept in maryland this morning and drove like crazy to catch these shows. Unfortunately its one of the worst stretches of highway in the US. For the first (and last) time i missed the beginning of a show. Got in around FOTD. Missed shakedown and was pissed. Not as good as the next night but still a solid show.
"Music is the best" - FZ
dragged a friend 4 hours to go to show and we both had to work in AM. got there and tickets were more than scarce, traded a weekend Albany for 1 , my friend didnt get in, that really sucked . he was bar hopping all night and i had to go to about 10 bars outside the civic center and found him slumped over a bar stool. we had to drive the 4 hours back home and i cringe thinkin of the trip now.
I remember tickets went on sale right before the Hartford shows to keep the "followers" at bay. Like that would matter.
That's why Shakedown Street was so incredible- "Telling me this town ain't got no heart?"
Then Iko Iko. This show was one of my first full-on Dead experiences. WOW. Seeing the whole house on their feet clapping. This message is bringing the memory back!
Then US blues.
My impression of all Hartford shows is the Bushnell Park, right next to The Hartford Civic Center. Love it or hate Hartford, Ct was, and still is a nice set-up.
Not gonna make this years shows- Hope they play Iko Iko- Back then, someone told me they only played it in Hartford.
Not sure if that could be true- but I'm goin with it!
I would love some feedback.
