You have the date of this show wrong . This was my first Dead Show & I have the stub to prove it. This show was on 6-23-80, not 8-23-80.

Absolutely true! My first show, too, and I wasn't in WI at that time. Remember that I thought Wharf Rat was way out of there!

sorry to blow your mind Dan, but this show was most definitely in August. I have my ticket stub, as well as the stubs for 8/24, 8/26 & 8/27. It was a great week! Check out Deadbase, they have the dates correct also.

It was my first show as well, and it was in August. Hmm.

AHH YES, THE VERY FIRST ALPINE SHOW. WE GOT A ROOM AT THE HOTEL RIGHT ON THE PREMISES [SO DID THE BAND] WHICH THEY NEVER DID AGAIN, AND FOR GOOD REASON. THE PLACE WAS UP FOR FUCKING GRABS. WAS HANGING WITH A CHICK NAMED TONY, WHO HAPPENED TO BE BOB WEIRS MIDWEST BANG WHEN THE DEAD CAME TO THE AREA [MAN, SHE WAS SMOKING HOT]. GOT US TO PARTY WITH THE BAND FOR A SHORT SNORT OR TWO [SHOOK THE MAN'S HAND THAT NIGHT, NEVER WANTED TO WASH IT AGAIN!] TWAS THE BEGINNING OF THE ALPINE ADVENTURE!

Was August, right before school started up again a the UW. Back then, you could bring in alcohol so long as it wasn't in glass. We bought a couple cases of Point and on the drive down drank them and filled up milk jugs to bring in. A little traffic/lines to get in, heard Alabama Getaway from just outside the gate.
