Great Don't Ease Me In

By far one of the most unique shows ever. The house lights stayed on for most of the show, there was a rumor that a jealous boyfriend was making a death threat to Jerry. Probably not true, but had more to do with the crowd on the floor being so packed together. Also, 37 shows under my belt and bar-none the best China/Rider ever played.

To me the best Looks Like Rain ever. Jerry hit every note.

Also the China Cat>Rider from 9/4 and 9/6 were the best ever. I give a nod to 9/4 since someones string broke and they had to stretch the jam.


I always assumed the lights were on to reduce the lighting up.

I was at this 3 night run. The first 2 nights were a rowdy, fight-ridden affair. The crowd was defintely intense and seemed to create a hostile attitude with some of the crowd. I believe the reason the lights stayed on on this night was to try and get a handle on the crowd. I mean there were fight everywhere. Just another day in paradise. I was glad I went with a bunch of friends and not by myself....Love NY shows but wow...
