East Rutherford, NJ, Brendan Byrne Arena
"Bird Song" debuted with the first batch of new songs in February 1971, and later in the year, "Jack Straw" debuted. Aside from "Bird Song" being absent for a few years in the mid/late 1970s, these songs were a big part of the Dead's repertoire until 1995. Interestingly, neither appeared on a Grateful Dead studio album.

New rules this year.......no synching allowed, you must have attended the show you pick AND can remember the setlist without looking it up, and all disputes will be settled by rock/paper/scissor contest. LOL!!! Everyone, enjoy the ride!!

I had forgotten about the 30 Days until I received the email this morning. And I enjoy offerings like this one. Lots of options, forcing you to whittle it down and listen a bit -- but not *countless* versions to wade through. Definitely solvable within five to ten minutes (for me).

Don't tell me this band ain't got no heart! My favorite time of the year. Thank You to the band and David! Friendly reminder, hints and clues are fun to share but no giving away the date. Resources are plentiful to help find the easy answer. I use a combination of DeadBase, Deadlist.com, Archive and my good buddy Mark. Good luck to my brothers and sisters!

The spirits were certainly with me - Dia de los Muertos indeed - no idea how but for the first time ever I got this one on the first try, despite not having been there or ever hearing this show before. Spooky - but yeah!
What grate start to this best time of the year. Thanks Dave!

About this annual communal treasure hunt is when I discover gems among the shows that aren't necessarily the winning shows, like those with special guests or rare songs, or song debuts. I end up listening to whole shows I never would have discovered if it weren't for the 30 Days exercise. Never fear, however, I did get this one after only a little pokin' around!

Don't Cry Now, 30 Days of Dead is Back!
If you hear that same sweet song again, Keep on rolling my old buddy
Laugh in the sunshine, sing
There ain't a winner in this game
Without the right venue/date placed
Good luck all.
Happy November!!

Woke up this morning after a fabulous Halloween show at the Hollywood Bowl last night sad that the tour was over. This is just what I needed to bring me back up.

Eleventh month, eleventh year! Great to be back in the 30 Days! Nice to see everyone back here, hope all are doing great. I've been keeping every year's 30 Days tunes so if you're missing any of the tunes from 2010 through 2020 just send me a personal note. Here we go!

It's like we never left, or more like the first day back at summer camp, only it's fall, and seeing familiar campers arriving by the minute, and the leaves are falling in the rain, the beginning of stick season; it's time to get a fire started, just don't get burned.
