Man I've been looking for any info on this show forever! My father was actually at the show and was lucky enough to meet Jerry himself. He told me it was two nights (the first night members of the center were free and the second was a free show). If anyone has anything about this show I would really apprechiate it if you email it to me. Thanks and Peace!

I don't have any setlist or taping info on this show but I do know someone who was there and, if I remember correctly she still has her ticket stub. I could try to get a scan of it...

I attended the show. Great little venue.
I vaguely recall they played St. Stephen, but thats all I can remember. Those were the days!

My dad says he was the teen director at the time of the show. His name is Norwood Utter. Shoot me a message if you have some info.

I was at the show. It was in the basement of a church and was packed. Someone else has indicated there were two different nights. I don't remember that, but I would have gone to the second night. Maybe there were two shows on one night, but all I remember is we waited forever, then the band played only a few songs then said they had to leave. Anyone else who was there remember that? It was a big disappointment.

Jim Tarbell flew the Dead in from SF for the first nite of two nite shows. The Dead were beat, and I mean tired! Tarbell said the NEXT night was better, of course. All I remember was pigpen, jerry, oscilloscopes, miles of wire and loud, loud, loud. Dang!! That music left your ears ringing for days. I do not rememeber a single song, but we were jammin', jammin' dancinn', groovin'and we met all our future friends, lovers and hippie friends there. In conservative Cincy, it was a real meeting of the heads. I was 14 years old at the time.....

I don't recall whether there were two shows or not, but I went to one. It was in the Hyde Park Teen Center in a former church building on Erie Avenue run by Jim Tarbell, who later ran the Ludlow Garage in Clifton. It was a pretty small place, and I know for sure that the show was upstairs in the old sanctuary because I still recall sitting on the side of the stage next to a stack of speakers and being as close to deaf the next day as I've ever been. It was packed and way ahead of the cultural curve for conservative Cincinnati. Do any recordings exist?

Memory - it sure can play tricks on you! I was at this show, but I have few images left of it. What I do remember: The lobby with their latest album displayed - Anthem of the Sun (and for sale, i assuume); but I sure don't remember the scene as described by many above. What I remember is seeing them in what was basically a living room, with a couple of them sitting on a couch in the center and other in armchairs. My date and I basically sat on the floor in front of them all. I remember nothing of the concert except "Morning Dew", I think. But sheesh! after all these years I wouldn't bet my month's salary on any of this.
