My first show and 25 years the Red Sox won it all on the anniversary while I cranked the tape in the background. After all, who can listen to Fox for the whole game!
I would really love to get a photo from this show, especially of Phil and Jerry ripping into the the mind melting Other One.

Small arena

Yeah, I like general admission shows in a 7000 seat arena. Intimate setting for the Grateful Dead.
I meet friends who turn me on to Peyote for the first time.
This is definitely a family event... lot of people screwing and dnacing together -- Don't let go!

Almost like clock work

Indeed, most of set 2 cooks & rocks. Indeed, intimate 6000-7000 people gen admission, and the outside environnement was ... woooo, rather isolated... in the midst of the C Cod woods. very cool show.

Elvis Costellos's tour bus

A group of 20 of us got tickets from a radio station in Boston and rented Elvis Costello's tour bus for the ride. My cousin was with in a hippie commune in W. Ma, and they had the bus in for repairs. So they rented it to us. What a trip! We had to pull around the back to park and as we did the limo with the band pulled along side. Garcia got out and look up at us, flipped up his sunglasses, and mouthed the word "Wow". Great concert ,too. No better start than Jack Straw and Candyman!

Old deadheads dont die... they just not fade away

Nice out of the way venue. Nice crowd inside. During the jam in Dancin' it sounded like an amp gaveway. I remember it being loud at the time. The band paused and the tearing sound happened again. The band just about stopped. They were all looking at each other. Garcia starts with marching like chords, the rest of the band joins in and they all take it to the next dimension in playing from there. Post He's Gone into The Other One still gives me chills 30 years later. Grateful Dead at its best.

First Show ... don't remember much

This was the show that started me on my adventures and love affair with the band . I don't remember much of the show but I always felt that this venue was in the middle of nowhere even though it's not. They did play closer to my home that year but I never knew and probably didn't really care much it took getting me to the show to turn my ears around. I was still in Jr High and I loved Kiss at the time.
