Kind of cool to expect and to hear "Race" and know that I was at the last venue they played it it...Fun little tidbit Also its always cool to hear a BHR song. I think that was the only "Stander" I saw live.

Anytime the Dead played on the day of the Kentucky Derby they would play The Race Is On. I got to see several of them. This venue was strange because it was in the middle of a big parking lot and concert area was surrounded by wooden walls and everything was painted to look like a castle motif. I remember that we had to walk a long way around just to get in the place. Very cool when we got in though and of course the croud was mostly a west coast croud which is so different from an east coast crowd. Dougles

We would take dayglow bracelets, cut them open and run around the back walls and make art...It probaly pissed the CalExpo people off but we sure had a great time doing it.
