I have heard about this infamous show since I moved to Denver. Legend has it a long strange Dark Star was played and a kill Dancin'.

The Family Dog shows in Denver were booked by famous Denver promoter Barry Fay, who started out as a decent guy and turned money hungry.

The funny thing is the place is now a strip club.

I was part of the sound crew for the show at Denver City Park on 09/24/1967

First off, I do NOT have the set list, the collection of stuff was uncommon in those days. Indeed, many bands didn't actually write their sets down before going on stage.

The Family Dog was, at the time of this show and the Dead's shows there earlier in the weekend booked by Chet Helms and the same staff that ran the Avalon Ballroom. Barry Fey became involved later and ran the venue as 'The Denver Dog' after Chet and his associates left town.

The building is, indeed, now a strip club but was prior to it's Family Dog incarnation a Denver outpost of the Whiskey A Go Go.

The show at Denver City Park on 09/27/1967 also included Mother Earth with Tracy Nelson, Captain Beefheart and His Magic Band and local favorites the Crystal Palace Guard which included future "women's music" stat Cris Williamson.

We had to get Beefheart an oxygen bottle. He had never sung at over 5,000 feet above sea level.

I was there. Lothar and the hand people also played. Timothy Leary was there. I took a lot of photos but a roll got lost never developed. One photo exists and is in one of the books about GD concerts although it's not credited to me because I lent the negative out and never got it back. Amazing it turned up in an archive. There was a camera crew from some station or paper but I don't which. I do still have the photos of Tim Leary. I spoke with him there. I went up on the rise where the Dead was playing. I was standing on the left side of the hill in front of Pig Pen. He came over to me and I thought he was going to ask me to move. Instead he said "it's okay to stand there man but just not on the cables". Very cool!!
