Brent was in rare form

I think this was the night Brent fell off his bench. Or one of the nights anyway.
After this show we headed to the rainbow gathering in the Keys where a bunch of freaks were sure that UFOs were landing that night.
Joann, Ginger, Tim, you guys out there?

Never quite that far out there again...

After attending Dead shows for 17 years (starting in fall '72), this was definitely the last GREAT one I had the pleasure to attend. I saw them a bunch of times way after that, but none could equal the "x" factor of that night.

Blown Away

The psychedelia in "Dark Star" got so loud I felt like sheets of steel were slamming me into the floor of the auditorium. Hart really worked that pythagorean monochord.

Private Show

I work ITB, and after loading in show barracades, Jerry came out to tune (alone), noticed by struk stare, looked up over his specks, smiled and plugged in to play a 4-5 minute solo session to just me and the folks cleaning in the house. I swear to God, the coolest thing EVER in my 24 years of setting up shows. And i got some good ones to tell;)
And it was my only DarkStar.
