This was my first GD show and I thought very good. The odd thing was there were only 1000 or less people there. The Dead did not do an encore and Phil Lesh was openly irate with the crowd. Seemed pissed that there were so few people. I thought he was a jerk because these were the people that CAME TO SEE them, not the ones who didn't show
My first show too. Don't remember crowd size, remember the show seemingly starting late, and not being the several hours long that I'd heard their concerts could be. Seemed rather good, but wasn't familiar with all of their music at that point in time. Remember some irateness... and no encore.
(I vaguely remember one of them saying to talk to the management about the no encore part, but that was (quite) a while back, so there you go. I kind of guessed it had something to do with the hockey ice and maybe hockey games before and after, but really no idea if that actually had anything to do with it at all.)
Is Bobby unplugging and saying something to the effect of, "you all can just go (_______) entertain yourselves." (Insert expletive)
