my first......um....pretty good for first huh???
We could not get tickets and some heads pushed the doors open and hundreds got in i met my friend on the floor he knocked over a security guard on the way in. We happened to see the same security guard on the way out we thought we were in trouble. He looked at us and said I did a lot of good tonight didn't I! What a great night.
Drove down from American University with 3 friends. Had no "police" trouble. I had only learned most of the songs by listening to my buddy B's bootlegs during first semester. I remember loving the first set "Jack Straw".
Second set; history.
The "Lost Sailor>drums>space>Saint" was mind blowing. The 'Hes Gone" was so beautiful, we almost wept. Bobby's admonition of the crowd during "Gloria" is something I will take to my grave. As it was my first show, I even enjoyed "Day Job" although I was by far in the minority.
drove down from Rochester, NY with girlfriend and her brother with no tickets. Both nights got in from people kicking the doors open, almost crushed the second night though. I remember cops on horseback and people throwing bottles at them. It was dark outside I remember, great shows though, my 6th and 7th and I was totally hooked. Got out to my car (a black cadilllac eldorado) after the second show to find someone had put a Jerry sticker on it, we thought we were hallucinating at first until we realized it was really there. Slept in that car in a rest area I think. I never saw a bad show, but these were smokin'
This was one of my all-time favorites. I really liked the venue (although Cops outside were over aggressive). The Sound was good and the place was spacey. 2nd set, Jerry just played one Ballad after another and Bobby was keeping that roler coaster ride going inserting upbeat songs in between.
The true greatness of this show is evidenced by the Dayjob encore. The band's way of saying that they really enjoyed the night.
Being from Richmond, I knew what to expect from the local police, so we tailgated at my apartment 10 minutes away, and went straight to the show from there with minimal parking lot time. One of the absolute best shows I ever attended. Anyone remember Mickey kept going to his back set of drums anticipating the "drums" segment, only to be stopped by "Comes a Time"? Then when Bobby launched "Lost sailor", he just shrugged and laughed....
This show always makes me smile. This may have been my best show, it certainly was the wildest show I ever went too. That Gloria at the end, where Bobby couldn't spell Gloria correctly was classic. I just remember pure pandamoneum on the dance floor for the second set first night. I always consider this the "circus" show, it was a total nuthouse in there. And those arrests were crazy, there were three undercover cops, who weren't undercover at all, and they would walk like they were drunk for about 30 feet, grab someone's bowl right out of their hand and put the cuffs on them. I do remember talking to head on tour right after the show, and this was his 168th show, and he testified, best one yet, but it was still the mid 80's, with many blessed treats to come. G L R O I A......
If you can find an audiance version of this show, it is way better than the soundboard.
