even though they played down in the bottoms and aint supersticious, i thought this was a short and weak set. dayjob was the perfect ending to this perfectly lame set. very very crowded, cold and rainy as hell. 2nd set was cool, gdtrfb was the best part and it fizzled after that. this was for me the beginning of the overcrowded days, too many people on tour, too many jerky wannabe heads who were there to be seen and did not understand the scene.

My first show - pouring rain but we were dry. CR&S was a great opener. The rest of the evening was a pleasant blur...:) Oh for the days of $12 tix...
Very crowded, but what show wasn't back then. This scene was very mellow in comparison to '86 & '87.

Remember the $1 salads... : )

This was my first concert ever. I just looked it up tonight and have been listening. After several Dead/Ratdog shows over the years (that I can barely remember...) I must say, this show was pretty good. I will be at the show in LA/Forum on May 9, 2009. I can't wait... Smile, smile, smile! Stay Dead!

For you ed watts fans out there - this show plays an important role in his book, U.S. Blues (it's where the murder happens)

My first Alpine experience with the first show being in 1980 at Nassau Col......

I remember the rain, and mushrooms and the opening Cold Rain and Snow....very appropriate....haze after that....

This was my first show
I spaced my ticket after someone named the 'Moonman' dosed me and some friends with liquid. We all got way overdosed. one of my best buddies ended up in the nurses station but I had a good trip. I climbed the mountain to listen and watched the swirling tie died crowed. the echo was beyond belief and I watched the kite two deadheads were flying up at the peak. I got to go swimming in the pool outside the resort and watched golfers hit balls at hippies who were camped off the fairway. Not long before camping at Alpine was stopped. I got in the show the second night. "Hell in a bucket" was the opener and I was all in. Dead head for life. My friend just saw 'Dead and company' tonight, they opened with "Hell in a bucket" He didn't go the the nurses station. I didn't get in but not because I spaced my ticket. I haven't done acid in a long time, now I do Antacid,lol-Johnny Lightning Warner.
