I was living outside of Boston, MA and went on vacation with my parents and sister to San Fran (I was 17 at the time).
My sister and I heard that the Dead had played the night before at the Kaiser Aud. so we called the radio station to find out about it.
We spoke with "M" at KFOG and he gave us his passes to the show.
We went that night (my parents drove strange) and it was awesome.
We did some of the things people are known to do at a Dead show...the cool part was that people were giving us everything for free...the entire evening cost me $0.
It was Chinese New Year...they had a dansing dragon on stage before the show.
The sets were great and we all went home happy.


Day Tripper-2nd of 5 times played
LLRain-"can't stop the f'n rain" nice!

short set indeed.

Short set II, yes.

Beautifully played set II with a killer Lovelight close out, Absolutely!

I really liked the space section leading into Black peter, really eerie and ambient, with some pretty cool sounds coming from brent. The show musta been a great one for the people there as well, considering it was chinese new year.

I know we are supposed to comment on the recordings, but I will say that these three Kaiser shows were remarkable for having a different Chinese act in the intermission each night. It was Chinese New Year, so one night there was a dragon dance, one night a Chinese orchestra, and one night a martial arts "dance" with drums. They were completely the high point of each night, because all three shows were utterly awful.
