I went and saw this show when I was a senior in high school - it was the first time I ever saw the Dead. They played these three songs and blew me away, then played along with Tilson Thomas and the Buffalo Philharmonic, sort of making electronic psychedelic noises along with the Orchestra.

I found a very interesting page from a local deadhead here in Buffalo that provides some insight into this incredible night. It was a whole lot more than them "making electronic noises along with the Orchestra". Check it out:

I was a senior in high school and went to this show too. I also remember that there was a laser light show that night which was pretty cool for Buffalo. I was thinking that Lukas Foss was the conductor, but you might be right.
