The Albuquerque Civic was a round building with a ramp which circled up to the top on the outside. We were lined up for the show early (it may have been "festival" seating). It was cold as could be and started snowing hard, but without much wind. Aparently Jerry Garcia heard about all the folks standing in the snow storm waiting to get in and had them open the doors to the fans.
We were treated to about 45 minutes or so of "sound check" by the Dead. After a break, NRPS came out and played a full set (with JG) and then, after the intermission, we got the full Dead show.
That's about all the details I can remember, but I sure do remember the snow falling and JG's kindness.
