I find it hard to believe I'm the first to comment on this run. I transferred to Pratt that fall and was having the time of my life. We went in to the Village to get tickets at a forgotten record store.
We commuted to this show from Brooklyn via the subway, and let me tell you, the ride home was the wierdest, trippiest experience I had had up to that point... very surreal, Red Grooms Ruckus Manhattan sort of thing.
The show? It was phenomenal. Two new tunes, Throwin Stones (we called it Ashes Ashes at that point) and Touch of Grey. The Scarlet/Fire is searing and the close of the second set is just that classic line-up of tunes.. Gone are the days...
I took the woman (19 yo) I eventually married to this show. It was our first "date". The crowd reaction when the boys came out was deafening. Phil had the Garden rumbling during Shakedown. At intermission I wanted to show her around, so I took her all over the Garden and we wound up by the campers - rows of back packs and what-not. The twirlers had made their way their as well and my future wife wouldn't let go of my hand as we made our way through the crowd. It was cool seeing her experience the scene. The marriage didn't last but we brought 4 beautiful kids (and now 1 grandchild) into the world.
Have been on a kick of 1982 in the last month or so. I never get enough of these guys. This night was my very 1st time in NYC. Having done the spring and summer tour of 82 this is my time frame. I remember clearly asking many in my home town to come along on the rest of the tour after Boston Garden show. In a way am glad was alone got to see everything I wanted to, This is one super hot show that's for sure. Loved the set list and insanity of it all. I was for sure taken aback by the size of the city and probably overwhelmed also. I would drive outside the city to sleep in a rest area ,wake and head right back to the city for the day. I did all of this is my parents dodge Omni. Had told family was going to umass for few days to visit friends little did they know I was off on tour racking up the miles and never calling home. After these 2 shows was heading off to New haven when some heads asked I had room in my car, of course I did I was solo to that point. We did the New Haven show and off to Syracuse carrier dome. Man those were the days. I wound up driving back after the last show on tour debating my life in my head. Go off to collage and play Hockey or go on tour. We all know which I chose otherwise wouldn't be writing this. My dad use to always say "he would be greatful if they were dead" Now he is a very happy father of a son who has been sober for many many many years now. having gone to spoford hall in fall of 89. Missed the infamous Hampton Warlocks shows. And most of everything after that. On one of the parent visits at spoford my mom came up and told me the Dead had played Dark Star and Attics of my life. She never listened to the band but had a co-worker who had gone on tour and was feeding her the set lists.
Thank God for a wonderful caring family and all the great years of following these guys everywhere. Wound up seeing 476 Dead shows and well over 200 Garcia shows. Sorry for the ramble. Peace and love to all jj
