Bob Plays An Angry Jack Straw
Solid show all around. I remember Shakedown rocking the house and the Lovelight was sweet - Jack Straw hot as well. Had a decent aud but the dome sound leaves much to be desired. My second show and the first I really appreciated.
That's right, this was my third show. I drove with my buddy Hal from our homes in Bergen County, N.J. to the Carrier.
By the time we had fought through the crowds to our seats, "The Band" were halfway through their set.
As I remember, this was an awesome show and is one of the few that has stood out in my often foggy memory. Although, like the abouve poster stated, the Carrier's acoustics left a little to be desired!
Hal and I are still great friends and we both now live in Seattle, WA!!!
Out of control!!! As Deadhead students at Syracuse, we waited on line overnight (you can imagine the fun) at the Dome box-office, months before the show, to get floor tickets.
On commemoration day, after partying all day together, we convened at floor central (with exceptionally fond memories of my buddy VP, may he Rest In Peace) for a rage. Our collective was so tuned-in to every note -- that cavernous hall of swooping sounds; its huge, parachute-like roof a canvas for the light show; sparkling lights, twinkling in the darkness. We knew The Dome like the back of our hand; and this was the final show of a 3-year, home-field run.
This show ranks as one of the most memorable in my personal repertoire. Second set ... mystical. Stompin' Smokestack. Black Peter like no other. Revolution encore: unbelievable! I still sing that rendition in my head.
For us students living off-campus, the party continued all night long. I remember skipping through the streets of Syracuse at 4am singing Revolution to myself. I'll never forget that night. The answer is ... love.
Isn't it funny that on the same tour, we would go from a 4500 seat Augusta Civic Center, to a dome with a seating capacity of over 2,000,000,000 ?
Glad you had such a show there "Terrapin85"
I remember being in awe of the size of the place after being in Augusta a few days earlier. We started in the loge and just kept walking across the seats until we got relatively close on Jerry's side on the floor. It was my first Revolution (I think) so I was psyched.
Also it was great, because after the concert we got tickets to see TC: From Rage Time To Dark Star. It was the 2nd late night show. I think it started at 1:30 or 2:00 in a small pub on campus.
This venue did nothing for me but like Terrapin85, I was student at SU and this was our home. I forgot all about the TC show. Everyone waiting with baited breath for a special guest appearance that would never happen. Parties off campus did round out this night. One of many for a memorable batch of DeadHeads calling this town their home for a few years in the early to mid 80s.
In response to a comment above: No The Band did not open. That was 1983, when I couldn't attend.
I wonder if I knew you guys. Im Jay Shelton '80 - '86.
I remember on the way out of the venue a gale force wind was pushing us out the door. it was so strong you could lean into it like the weather jocks in hurricanes, i think it had something to do with the way they inflate the parachute like roof of the dome
