Just like your favorite jam, things are going to get a bit funky on Dead.net over the next week or so. Community accounts will be temporarily closed October 16th-17th and may be under further maintenance through October 22nd. But rest assured, we will be back up and better than ever shortly thereafter. Stay tuned!

This was the last time I travelled to see the boys. I had basically been turned off by the scene of ticketless people but had a good friend I needed to travel once with and boy did we choose the right shows. Both sets of this show were excellent and Florida was a perfect place to let go. Unforgettable To lay Me Down.
...and the marquee outside sez, "special $2.73: eggs/bac/ or sau Pot or Grits"

I'm pretty sure this show was the better of the two-night run. I don't have a strong memory of it but I will check it out on Archive. It was my penultimate show. I lost track of them for a couple of years and then, even though not a huge Brent fan, could not imagine them without him. I went to one more (4/9/91) and was so disappointed I didn't even go down the street to see them with the Black Crowes in '95. I regret not going to that even if the show was terrible.
As I already said on the Saturday show’s page, this was a special weekend and the St Pete scene was fantastic. This is, IMO, the best show of that weekend. I remember I had some sort of euphoric outburst during Terrapin. I walked out of this small arena after Quinn the Eskimo, on a Sunday night in Florida, a full-blown Deadhead. I think we headed back up to school in Gainesville at some point the next day.
