Two great shows, ignore previous posts. First shows there. You had to line up single file to get past the chain link fence that surrounded this beautiful coliseum. As you stood there people walked by selling acid in the most awesome array of sheets I had ever seen in one place. I chose pink doves with no regrets.... ;) I wish I could do it all again!

Funny how serious people take music made by the least serious people on the planet. Even their "worst" show (whatever that means) is better then most other music ever performed live. Bands usually last 5, maybe 10 years before spliting up cause of drama, or one person gets more attention and the others get jeleous, which never happened with the boys from the gold coast. Funny how noone ever gives credit where credit is due.

either way, if you listen to the music like you listen to your friends jam, you'll never be disapointed. Most people who call out shows (even i used to do it) are only doing so because they are comparing it to a more intense show which they mark as the standard for the sound of the dead they expect to hear every time. One show is never better or worse then another, it just had different circumstances which were out of the boys hands and different people enjoyed the result in different ways.

Show like this one just prove how few f**ks were given by the boys and how awesome the result was when they all locked into to heady vibe. I say, let people make their comparissons, it only hurts them when they replace good vibes with judgemental ones, i'll just keep listenin and smilin, cause thats all you can do now.

Also, Second Bob Star. It sounds like a little minute and a half peom that bob weir sings before the Other One. Anyone confirm or correct this statement?
-Murphy (10/09/2013)


Yes, I can confirm that, I called it "One of them Little Stars" in my book..

Steve Stills joined the band for Black Queen, then attempted to sing a verse in Iko Iko but just made up some lyrics and then came back out to join them for Johnny B Goode. We had driven into NYC early in the day to buy tickets from a scalping agency, to find out there were actually 2 shows (pre-internet w/limited info available) so bought tickets for both shows. Stills joined them the second night as well - two excellent shows as far as I am concerned!!
