This show introduced Donna Jean Godchaux to the Dead. It was her first Dead show and the first time, infact, she had ever heard them. Soon after her and Keith would want to join the band

Perhaps you are thinking of October 1971 instead of '70.

She (they - K & D) were in the audience
for the show.

Breakout show.
Truckin'-5th time played
Till The Morning Comes-2nd time played
Sugar Magnolia-8th.


If I'm not mistaken, this is the night Janis Joplin died, and the line "I'll show you snow and rain" from Bird Song is a reference to the fact (if it is indeed a fact) that the Dead were playing Cold Rain & Snow when she passed.

Indeed; this was the night JJoplin died. The show featured one of the first electric Uncle John's.

Note about Keith and Donna: by October '71, Keith was already on keys (i.e., 10-31-71 in Columbus, & 11-7-71 at Harding Theatre).

"All I know is something like a bird within her sang. All I know she sang a little while and then flew on... I'll show you 'snow and rain'" :(

Janis supposedly passed during Cold Rain and Snow

First show after Jerry's mother died

The CR&S Janis connection seems like romanticism to me. Still, a beautiful lyric.
-Woody (03/04/2022)

According to the 2023 documentary San Francisco sounds, The band had heard that Janis has been found dead before they went on stage. They discussed whether or not to announce the news but opted to not to figuring they should enjoy the show because they're find out afterwards.
