Wonderful show and life space...living the California Dream...driving our VW bus up the coast from Monterey...The Dead in our backyard....Too cool and hassle free for us...Last Deep Elem..loved Mexacali, Man Smart. First time hearing Throwing Stones and Day Job. Saw Linda Ellerbee's crew come by filming the show for a TV piece that I later caught on TV about how The Dead were alive and kicking under the radar of the Ray-gun's years...They played my favorite songs and I was joyous...easy to slip and let my memory drift and do nothing at all..did it really exist at all....
As a student at UC Santa Cruz, there were many Deadheads around and I was adopted into the family. After the Greek shows in May, Ventura in July, Frost in August, this local show was a dream come true. I walked to the box office to purchase my tickets. We drove in to the 'parking area' about a half hour before show time and walked around the crowd to the Brent side of the arena. The place was dancin' and spacin' and trippin' and all that kind of Deadhead thing.
After the encore we thought we'd walk across the arena in front of the stage, when to our amazement the boys returned for a second encore of One More Saturday Night.
Truly an epic show. Space > Uncle John's Band !
I was truly on the Bus
The Sky was Yellow, and The Sun Was Blue
People stopping strangers just to shake their hand.
My nephew Nicky drowned at this show, changing my life forever. I am writing a book and looking for anyone who has a bootleg from this show. Particularly looking for sound bites between sets and band makes announcements with Nicky's discription. I didn't get to see the show that day, I was too busy asking everyone if they had seeing a little boy about knee high...sorry, but I have an amazing life story and this was part of it. I watched seven white swans land and take off with Nicky's soul, at the time I had no Idea he was in the pond.
