San Francisco, CA, Fillmore West
A centrepiece of Anthem Of The Sun in 1968 and Dead shows through 1971, The entire "That's It For The Other One" suite was one of the Dead's most intense live songs. This version segues into an early "Main Ten," aka "Playing In The Band."

I have never heard this title, as Deadbase always called it "The Main Ten," for its 10 beat rhythm. If this is the uncirculated official name, I'm impressed. File under "songs about time."

Whelp . . . just gotta put a few puzzle pieces in place for this one. Things are not as they seem, but there it is. Got enveloped in the cryptical search, but came out smiling on my 1st choice. Have fun! And while we're at it, so very cool to hear the "added bonus!" Thanks Dave!

Right away. Thanks to their hint. This whole show is worth having. Put that on my listening list for later. Enjoy!

A hefty dose of Dead to start the day! I do some of my very best thinking on the toilet, and that's when the clue struck home like a goddamn thunderbolt. After that the search was not too hard. Vietnam War protests were hot and heavy (and sometimes violent) during this time - as can be heard on this recording.

That's a lunker, what a gem! I look forward to this every November. Our month long show is getting deep.

Yes, indeed! I've already loved this show. Hoping that we'll get a Dave's Pick, or a box soon. I, too, started looking in a different direction, but quickly got back on track. Thanks, Dave!

Eternal love to the woman in the crowd who, around 3:10, starts to berate everyone to, among other things, "get off their a$$es and go out and help people" before receiving a short round of applause. The band even quiets down for her briefly. Plus it is a "dead" giveaway and I was able to enter the contest with no hunting. Good night Mrs Calabash.... wherever you are.

Even with all the hints this morning, that one took more effort to find than I'd like to admit.

This Main Ten not listed in DeadBase 50 or setlists.net. Dave's hint but more importantly the hint in the first few seconds helped me.

Edit: I was corrected. It is in DB50.

this can b 2 songs or 6 and a half depending on your point of view
had bit of a time nailing it down as several databases have it incorrect, but when i finally heard it even the tone deaf one knew it right away.
awesome jamming thanks dave...never would have searched this out on my own

Someone turned the 10 up to 11 in a couple of places.

Is always fun while discovering other gems in the process. I had a 'you dumbass' moment with myself however, after realizing that not only have we been here 3x before, and that I had this show saved... from years ago.
D'oh!

What the heck is "Main Time"? It debuted 6 months later? As what? That isn't the name of any Dead song.
Confused...???

I was frustrated too, but when the day had nearly ended, after discovering that DeadBase was no help, I realized that Dave's hint, while excellent, is misleading. The woman's rant is a big clue...

the biggest clue is what 'Main Time' SOUNDS like, that should help you find the year from Dave's hint

Both are important and Dave's hint helped nail it. AND, as others have said, searching sources other than DeadBase.

the song title is wrong in DeadBaseX, so it's not in 'The Main Ten' list.
Even though today's hint told me the year and I knew I'd heard the chick's HOT harangue before, I still had to flip through a handful of shows....and found I actually have a tape of this....

I have no idea what venue. I’m assuming it’s 67-68 era ? Hard to tell. If you listen in the beginning. When it’s mainly just the drumming. You hear some girl shouting about Vietnam. That and the tunes lead me to think 67-68

This one was a blast to track down (and really there's only one - the protest rant and all).
Got a jam I was hoping for - thanks Dave!
So much ferment made for so much powerful music (and more gems in the search if you don't get it right away - some awesome jams). One wonders what music might be yet to come from our current turmoil - but I don't expect much except from the rappers, I'm afraid.
So grateful that we have this amazing time machine that allows us to enjoy the wondrous sounds even from before our own experiences with the band.

i am currently going through this year's music, show by show in real time (also enjoying Jesse Jarnow's commentary @bourgwick ), so this one was almost too easy.

while here, i want to once again thank all involved, from the band on down, for my favorite holiday ritual. it's such a pleasure to have this safe cozy space where we can all be Dead family.

and as always #thankataper !

Playing for years, never selected . . . but what a journey. . . Dave - no help today, it was the WWG venue (RIP, taken by copter, like hometown boy SRV). Just about to walk away, nothing matched, and much later than initial guess.

But the journey was a blast - cued up 6 concerts from era to download for later listening. Promo for chrissbendel and his "Grateful Grabber", a Chrome extension that makes downloading archives so, so easy . . .

Find the song he’s hinting at, figure out when it debuted in completed form, backtrack a spell and you’ll find it. Somehow I the first show I randomly (or educated guess) picked was it. The subject matter of what the lady is yelling about pins it to a pretty likely location too.

Found this nugget in about 10 min., and spent the rest of the day going through some serious jams, one after another....what an era, Jerry was on another level!

It's such a groovin tune. Never could figure why they stopped playing it.
Very cool that Dave gave us that one, from the same date, in a previous 30 DoD! Just listened to it again. Fun combo of guitars and some tasty solos.

And when the day had ended mind remained unbended, and I finally found the right version.
Not an easy one tonight, it left a smoking crater of my mind I like to blow away.
Good luck to those still searching.

I must have gone this period 10 times! Then I started expanding to ridiculous. Then went back to beginning with a new approach, and there it was! Should have found in minutes, not hours.

THis was my fav day so far.... Actually its a tie bc that trio day was fabulous too! I found the show thankfully. Bill's intro helped me narrow it down and the Vietnam speech was a real testament plus let me know i found the right one. the chanting during cryptical was eerie and i wish i could hear it better. Just finished the whole show from that date. It is so sosos awesome to have access to this music. Louie this is a Man's world! Not to mention the birth of a baby that grew so tall and lived so long through the years! Thanks Gratefully yours!

I’m enjoying figuring out which shows. This one I didn’t bother with since only had late in the day to even see what it was. So couldn’t spend long time listening to the whole thing then comparing to other shows. But man I wish they had an option either FlaC or MP3. Be nice to have all these in one section to listen to another time but I can’t do MP3’s. They are t he devil.

Today's searching and locating was the most fun I've had doing 30DOD. The subtle clues, the variations in song titles/tags(dare I say typo.No), the relevence and reverence these tunes still hold today, not to mention the outstanding sound quality on 30+ minutes of free, timeless music as art and expression....well I'd say it's time well spent. Forever Grateful!
(Late edit: I thought the intro voice sounded like Cutler, which really threw my search in a loop, not that it matters now.....Group thoughts appreciated).

...I definitely overthought that quite a bit, and it did indeed take longer than it had to. Great jam!

I guess this has already been said, but shouldn't it be Main Ten instead of Time?

    I didn’t even know winners were posted how did I miss this?

    Is the 30 days over? It’s 230pm eastern and got on to see what today’s song was only to see it’s the same as yesterday but under it I see the posted winner. I haven’t noticed this yet before but I usually check back at night. I don’t actually think I’ll win the box set but enjoy figuring out which show it is. I already ordered myself a calendar so that won’t matter. I have been using the offices dead calendar for least 15 years. Hope it’s not done. I thought it was all November? Pretty sure it is
