I grew up going to boat shows at this arena, so imagine my suprise when I saw bundles of sage instead of sailboats! My 3rd-5th shows, the 1988 LB shows is where I "got it". The lobby is really cool. There is alot of space to dance or sit on the back steps (see my show reviews of this). The parking lots are small but there seemed to be ample street parking. (something I have only seen at HJ Kaiser in Oakland) It was great to be that close to the water. Shoreline Marina had just been completed so there are some really neat areas to walk around. What a great place to be for a Dead show!
this is the show where Carolyn lost her shoes and clothes.
started at long beach.
What is it with Long Beach? loved the show and thanks to a kind head who helped me into the show. bro if it was not for you I would have been passed out in a dumpster outside heaven. Way to go bro!
