i had no tic was bummend my friends and i took off122,and got to prov scored tics what A SHOW DROPPED A COUPLE AND DANCED DANCED DANCED C.C RIDER WAS GREAT BUT BOY 2ND SET JUST LITE THE NIGHT UP
the not fade chant never stopped between the last song and encore then picked up again after the encore then got louder win the house lights came up and continued even as the red jacket ushers formed a line in front of the stage and started moving forward into the crowd. Best not fade chant that I was part of.
I was there but, I have absolutely no memory of it. I do remember the Jamaican!
I attended this show with Jack-Straw-man and Dottie on our way-down from the Portland’s Maine.
Since it was an impulse show , we could still show-up without tickets and have 100% confidence of admission. We managed 2 cheap seats for face and with the help of our Usual Suspects we did a "3 for 2" tix stub magic trick at the turnstile.
Providence Civic's carpeted halls of the concourse stands out in memory as Bucket was cranking-up. I believe Providence was a very "Feet Friendly" east coast venue for hall dancers. The energy I saw and felt was akin to the Spectrum in lighting and use of portals to meld into one big cycle of fun.
The Band's playing was tight as Cumberland Blues demonstrated. The venue was bouncing. Then a pause and Brent's locomotive move'd in with "Ton's of Steel". Phil was on-top and in-charge allowing Jerry and us to have some fun with the lyrics. We will stay dry.... We will get by....
Just brought back the memorys . That was a good way of getting in 1 stub 2 tickets and after the turn style gaurd ripped the 2 tickets 3 would go in and the look on there face......... wait thats for the 2 of you? Then we would say no you had 3 tickets there. They would look down at there hand with 3 stubbs and wonder hmmmmmmmmmmm and in ya went
So many on the sites where we get to comment on our thoughts of shows or the band itself make many comments on the decline of Garcia.I feel that he gave it his all everynight out of the love of the music and love of us. My thinking is he loved to play just look at inbetween Dead shows how much his band would play.
About these shows here in 86 they seemed to try and keep up with all the break outs like 'why don't we do it in the road" "roadrunner" Willie and the hand jive" Desolation row and many more. If he were in such bad shape with a subsatnce I don't think he could keep up like he did. From my own experience with the same substance its hard to even get out of bed let alone hit the road like they did.
