Straight Theater - September 28, 1967
September 28, 1967
Mickey Hart's first show with the Dead - also: Sons Of Champlin - In order to avoid permit problems these two concerts were billed as "The Straight Theater School of Dance" for both nights
Not sure which day I attended this Straight Theater gig, so we'll do the comment here. I had seen the dead a number of times before this, and liked them. But frankly I was more impressed at that time with the Jefferson Airplane and Big Brother - until I walked into the Straight Theater that weekend and heard the Dead with two drummers. What an amazing difference that made. I knew then that the Dead were on to something quite incredible. And it was only up from there.
