Great outdoor show. The boom town rats were pelted with items as the intro band. "WE WANT THE DEAD!"
I believe you are referring to the show three years later at Holleder Stadium which was definitely outside. I think the War Memorial is an indoor venue. Also, I believe it was the "Good Rats" who were pelted.
But, what the hell, as long as the memories are good ones!!!!
This show was definitely indoors, early in the fall tour after their comeback tour in the summer.
One particular moment stands out: A bold single note held by Jerry in the "Other One" that really kicked up the tension and still rings in my skull today.
Three years and a day since the last time I had seen them (9/26/73), I made it to Rochester for this show (coming from Buffalo). Got there five songs into the first set, due to ride snafu, but glad I got there at all. For this, my third show, I laid off the psychedelics. I wanted to hear them with a different set of ears. The room was only about half-filled, which was a shock after seeing them twice before in the packed Buffalo War Memorial, but allowed us a better view of the proceedings. The Help on the Way, Slipknot, Other One, Wharf Rat, Franklin's sandwich was pure poetry. I recall Garcia doing some Pete Townsend moves during the Help intro.
