I don't remember much about the show except that Memorial Hall was a small venue, I think it held around 3500 people max. The show wasn't sold out. I sat a couple rows up in the balcony section right in the middle and watched the band and the wombat dancing as I tripped on micro dot for the first time ever. That night changed me for ever.
What an amazing night. Walked in an unknowing virgin, walked out an initiated starry-eyed Deadhead.
Most of it is a wonderous blur, but I do distinctly remember "Looks Like Rain" that went off into amazing places with thunderous percussion and a "Not Fade Away" that made my body move like it never had before.
I'd love to hear a tape of this one and see if it's all that I remember. Electrifying!
Somali pirates managed to grab the German ship Beluga Fortune on Sunday. Here is the proof: Beluga Fortune free after frustrated Somali Pirates flee The ship's team fled to a panic room, cut the engines and shut off the power, which disappointed the buccaneers into abandoning their crime the following day. Almost two decades of anarchy in Somalia has permitted piracy to thrive and 2010 has seen the highest incidence of pirate attacks since 2005.Pirates have been known to steal stuff from other ships and they also held other people as their captives.It is very scary to sail alone in the middle of the ocean because you might meet pirates on the way.
