The Dead listening party 3/20/1990 Nassau Coliseum with Bradford Marsalis set 2. Very good.

Q: What did the Dead Head say after he had stopped smoking pot?
A: Man, this band sucks!

Actually I do like them!

RE: The Grateful Dead Thread
The first time I really saw the Grateful Dead was when an older cousin took me...

New Years Eve 1978. At, some point they said if you have to be somewhere you need to leave now because it's a private party and they locked the doors. I remember I got a little nervous about that..and was afraid I'd get into trouble...But found my cousin and she said she'd already told my mom and dad that I'd be back the next day....

The Dead played all night, along with a bunch of other people and in the morning we had pancakes....

Best fucking concert ever. It was like 10 hours of music. The concert was broadcasted on KQED and on the radio station KSAN -- turned out my father was watching and soooooooo not happy with my cousin for taking me to that concert. He absolutely hated anything "hippie". But let me go because I begged and she'd already taken me to another concert that I was totally into seeing (Black Sabbath and the opening act was Van Halen who I knew very little about but quickly got into).

I recall a couple opening acts...I know one was The New Riders of the Purple Sage (my cousin was totally into them) but the other band I'd never heard of...I wasn't allowed to watch SNL so I had no clue about the Blues Brothers. I didn't even remember seeing them until I saw the bit they did years later on video. (Think it was the Best of John Belushi or something like that) and suddenly spoke up and said, "I saw them in concert!"

I think there was a third opening act...but I can't for the life of me remember who it was...maybe just random musicians???


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

RE: The Grateful Dead Thread
I've watched the DVD they released a while back of the concert, but can't find me. My dad had said he saw me when he watched it live.

I guess I ended up on the cutting room floor. Weeping

My cousin however is seen in the audience in it...so I know I'm close by....
And I found her in the Last Waltz when I first saw it years ago -- but she didn't offer to take me to that.

Both were filmed at Winterland.
