did not have a ticket but showed up anyway.
Went around back with 2 girls I knew to watch them arrive and one of the girls got invited in by someone.
10 minutes later the other girl and I were in and the three of us watched the show from backstage.
My only time ever backstage at a Dead show.
I stood behind PigPens keyboard the whole show.
Went to the show anyway & hung out in front of the Academy trying to score a ticket. Unbelievably, I scored a ticket for 5 bucks! Not even realizing what I was doing (guess I figured that the seat couldn't be that good) I went up to the balcony. The usher told me that my seat was downstairs in orchestra. So I went downstairs and handed my ticket stub to another usher. I followed him as he kept walking and walking down the aisle. Finally he stopped at about the 15th row. The seat was right in the center of the aisle. As I nestled into my seat the band broke into 'Playing In The Band'. It doesn't get any better than this. One of my most memorable Dead concerts.
Saw a lot of friends there. A Family reunion of sorts. Great Music, Great Party.
FIRST SHOW ,ONLY THE BEGINING OF A LONG STRANGE TRIP
Prelude to Europe's great run.
what a show sorry i missed these where was i caught the felt forums in dec 71" probably couoldn't get a ticket
Saturday night Pigpen kicked ass. On this night my friends and I sat front row center. Boogie woogie flu was setting in and I had to burn my candle at both ends. I remember Pigpen shaking as he sang "Two souls in communion".It was the last time Pigpen was in N.Y.C. I turned 18 three days later. Class of 72.
Why an old timer like myself who saw the band on a regular basis in the early 70s might just have a hard time going to dead co, ratdog, phil & friends ect. The music continues on and this is positive. But these days, it just isn't the same. The Grateful Dead ended July 9th, 1995.
