This has got to be one of the more under
rated shows that I have been to and have tapes of! The jam from Playin'to Crazy Fngrs is incredible. The drumz also stand out as Bobby and Brent were on stage most of the time with tamborines and other noise making stuff.There were others on stage behind the drums and I didn't get a good look at them but lotsa stuff going on!

I concur, I was there and used to have the tape (now sadly lost) Except for Day Job, the whole 2nd set rocks, with a great Playin, and the Sugar Mag tease and change into Good Lovin is cool. Not the longest or most unusual show, but good nonetheless. Also, came out of the show and found out the Orioles won the world series!

My first show, and one of my favorites. I've never heard a better version of "Friend of the Devil".


Harry, I'm sure you've heard better versions of BUCKET, which was played for the seventeenth time in existence.

This was the first hometown show for me. Last time they played Richmond was '77 which was before I had gotten into the Dead. And as other commenters have noted, Playin'->Crazy Fingers was mighty, mighty fine!

Also: the only Crazy Fingers of '83-'84. Last played 10/10/82, next played 4/4/85.

I recall them playing RVA in two successive years, same here about 77 show, remember riding w/ older bro to the Mosque from Ashland, parking where the deck is VCU parking deck......etc.

Enjoyed seeing them in my back yard.

Friends had such great tales that night as friends from out of town told tales of actually finding the correct bus in strange city faced out of his mind.........good times indeed.

This was a few years before the bloody crack down, it was so nice, the calm before TOG on MTV.

The screwed the pooch, and then I had to start buying tickets BEFORE the show. WTF!
