Bruce Springsteen has written about attending this show. (while he doesn't state this location or date directly, it's the best fit). "In the 1970s I went to a Grateful Dead show at a community college. I watched the crowd swaying and doing its trance-dance thing and I stood very outside of it. To me - sober, nonmystical, only half-hippie, if that, me - they sounded like a not-very-talented bar band. I went home gently mystified. I don't know if the Grateful Dead were great but I know they *did* something great. Years later, when I came to appreciate their subtle musicality, Jerry Garcia's beautifully lyrical guitar playing and the folk purity of their voices, I understood that I'd missed it. They had a unique ability to build community and sometimes, it ain't what you're doing but what what happens while you're doing it that matters." - Born to Run, Simon and Schuster 2016 p. 453
