First Dead show ever for me!

We were very worried that the show might not come off do the demise of pig just a few weeks earlier. But the Dead carried on like true warriors and played a great show. Tennessee Jed and Casey Jones are my best memories. NRPS opened and I love them!

March 31, 1973 Dead, New Riders Show

Great show, people were great. People where talking about the show weeks before it happened. Something about a Grateful Dead show in the old Aud. Some of the kindest people ever met. New Riders were the icing on the cake ! Lots of Acid show was fun.

My first show, also

Lots of acid, indeed. Great blue blotter from NYC. What a moment in space and time, and what a great place to see the Dead. I started out sitting by myself, but by the end of the night I had 10,000 new friends. Box of Rain, Playing in the Band, Truckin' into The Other One, were high points for me. I still think about this show a lot. The Playing in the Band that ended the first set was a revelation. That was the point where I finally understood what was at the core of the Dead aesthetic. But it was during Truckin in the second set that I realized what was at the core of my own aesthetic.
