Nobody's Fault

The drums started after Eyes, but Brent launched into Don't Need Love. Jerry left the stage for the entire song. Nobody's Fault was his least that was our perception. Starlight, such a beautiful place.

First Show

I'd been listening to thier albums for about a year but this was my first show. Bought some white blotter about 5 minutes after parking before i had even left the car. I remember sitting on the hill watching people go into the theatre and it was a nice sunny day and just enjoying the trip/scene so much.

After the show i bought a few t's one a great tye dye with althea and a dancing woman on the front. The scene was considerably smaller then than what it would be 2 years later.

Very good time kinda makes me wish they had not gotten as popular as they did.

i paid homage to ...

... the venue, but did not go to this morsel of a show. while attending sandstones in '90 and '91, we went the the infamous swope park and saw the weeds adorning those bleacher seats. just a buncha sticky gd energy left there; like so may venues. hello kansas city! love ya except in afc time. deer creek - indpls. peace, shack

This was not the final "Nobody's Fault" , they did it in Boston on 9/22/91 for sure and that might not have been the final one either that I know of. Not that it really matters but just for the record.

this starlight show stands the test of time though without a doubt. just look at that second set. tapes of this show are great.

smoking crater

was just minding my own business--in the pit with a head full o' that purple gel--when the other one just floored me. cryptical was a bit croaky but lesh just flew out of the gate. stunning. what a venue. wavy gravy was right.
