Golden Ticket - Capital Theater 1978 had to be!

That concert isn't listed here on this site because I quess it was a private concert ( by invitation only ), I remember it was a FREE ticket too, not only one ticket but The Dead Head Club gave me 2 of them for FREE. Don't have my old gold ticket though, so I don't have the date either.

It had to be in 1978 because I was about 6, 7, or 8 months pregant with my son then and he was born on June 7th, 1979.
So I'm thinking Oct. -Nov. - Dec. 1978. I was wearing a coat,It was cold out side. The coat just about fit around my belly.

And God did I feel Mickeys drums, the vibration went right threw me, I really felt pregant then.

I fell asleep towards the end of the concert. The Capital Theater was a small place. I remember getting in while the band was playing and Jerry just played his guitar and staired at my big belly as I walked to my seat. Man what a trip.

Hey it was November 24th 1978

Just to set the record straight, it was Nov. 24, 1978 and it is listed and by the way life is a trip but I wasn't tripping at that concert, I would never do that knowing I was having a baby soon.

Peace

4-27-77

Such good shows at the capitol, I wonder why they are looked over and not released. The 4-27-77 show made me a deadhead sure. I didn't even go but taped it off the radio. Yes indeed the bar across the street was crazy...also the lobby during breaks...the mens room was packed. My fav show there was the "guitar greats"...had gilmore, tony iommi, link ray...too many more. Also saw willie and leon. Jerry with Dr John/denko/hunter...What a blast...

The Capitol in Passaic NJ 1976 & 1973 with Merle Saunders

Yup, I saw about anybody who was anybody there. From The Dead, Jerry & Merle(THE LATE SHOW). Came out and the sun was coming up ! To Van Morrison, Cactus, John McLaughlin's Mahavishnu Orchestra, Canned Heat, Hot Tuna acoustic and electric about 10 times...! It was a real sin bin, smelled like piss, but who could tell over the sweet smell of Cannabis Sativa! CrAzY DaZe there. But "THE BAND" G.D. of course liked it and it was small and somewhat cozy. Paid $7.50 for a show, and most nights, they had a decent warm up band, that ALWAYS got booed off the stage when the DEAD were in town. I remember feeling embarrassed for them. People like Steve Miller, Black Oak Arkansas, Maria Muldower...
