Hamza during drums!

I was at this show and I think I left a few hundred brain cells at the Kaiser.
BTW listen for Branford in set II !!!
"Thank you, for a real good time"
-Loose Lucy

Minor correction--not Branford Marsalis on sax, but rather one of the Neville brothers.

Damn Straight that ain't Branford! That'd be pretty damn pitiful if it was...

That had to be one of the most memorable Altheas ever, one of the most mind altering 8 minutes of bliss the dead has out. wow
-DJ. Falafel

This was my first trip to Cali for shows. Only had about 15 under my belt at that time. Flew from Ohio on a bit of a whim with no tickets, and they were IMPOSSIBLE to get. This was the only one I got into, and the odd thing was right after I got my ticket by pleading at the booth, this big ugly guy was standing at the top of the steps with me talking about what a shame it was that Huey Lewis got the Coliseum this year, so many kids, so little space there. Turns out it was Bill Graham, lol.

Anyhow, what an awesome venue! General admission, very small, and not crowded at all. You could walk right up to the stage and dance, get eye contact with the boys. Neville Bros. opened, first show I saw with an opening act. Dead was fantastic. Can't say enough good things, what a first experience!

Hellav good 'shoe' after Jerry's return from the coma less than a month prior. Boys voices and playing are spot on from the start of Bucket through some old 60's Cumberland, BIODTL and Don't Ease coupled with soon to be retired Easa and 5th/58th Push.

but the 2nd set is where the sparks fly folks. China>Rider>Saint>Ship>Estimated>Eyes previously played 5/9/81 Nassau. Not sure who plays the horns but they are well rcvd regardless.
