According to deadlists.com, the Dead played in Columbus on 11/22, then down the road to Athens on 11/23 for a free show that also was Tom Constanten's debut. Wow, what a trip these 2 shows must've been!!

I dunno, it must have been the roses!
First show 11/23/68 ATHENS OHIO ... Anyone have it for trade?
Crummy wheather driving to Columbus to see these guys, didn't kno wmuch aboutthem at all. Promoter did poor job of advertsing and ticketing--only about 250 ppl in a 3,000 seat auditorium! Should have put this show on somewhere ckloser to the college campus, maybe? But where? Columbus was not a rock n roll city at the time, only OSU football mattered to some people!
Sufficiently wierd show ( mostly stiff from "Anthem") that I decided to follow them to Athens, Ohio the following night.
once you get past the sound quality of this show it gets inside the brain and sends it spinning like top GREAT SHOW !!!
I keep seeing the world as one big kalidascope
Check out my post regarding this show, javamaster... I'd govel deeply and long for a setlist, let alone any recording ... but Mem Aud's tape archive is missing that night's... dang. Do you recall ANYTHING that was played? It was that good... :)
