My last Dead show.

I really enjoyed this show. I remember thinking they played quite a few country and folk songs. Never thought I'd hear Mexicali Blues. Garcia was incredibly heavy which worried me greatly. Still, they played well (as I remember). Very upbeat and spritied (or maybe I was very upbeat and spirited).

I never would have thought that this would be my last show. But, they never came back to Austin when I lived there (1989). And, I lived in L.A. until the day Jerry died (pretty much to the day). They always played December shows and I was usually out of town.

Hot show

I found a dose from a guy in a dayglo green hat, started frying immediately, tripped brains out for the whole show, spent hours in the lot afterwards cuz I couldn;t drive, tripped very hard, had a superb Dead time.

@nd Show

2nd Show. Had an interesting day in Austin and made it to the show a little early. Obtained two blotter from a mom who was selling it to put her kids through school. Very clean. The show was remarkable. I was able to get right up front with no hassle but spent a lot of time just sitting on the lawn. The show seemed like it was over to soon and here I was blazing with nowhere to go. I started hitch hiking and was immediately picked up by a couple of deadheads from New Jersey. They made me drive since I was wide awake and we headed onward to the next show in Oklahoma City. I was about broke and these guys got me a ticket and fed me. Deadheads Unite Indeed!
