My first show! then on to Greensboro, Hampton.....West,East,North,South.....So Many Roads...... :)

Sorry this is so long but it's a good story... I was living in Atlanta at the time, and I had gotten a ticket three weeks earlier, for 'turning right on red'. I was on the lot and decided to take a look at the ticket to see when I had to pay the fine. It said my court date was that day at three o'clock!! and it was 2:45!! I had to pay the fine within fifteen minutes or face another charge. I got some frinds to watch my merchandise and hold my parking space, while I jumped the curb and drove six blocks to the courthouse to pay the fine. I couldn't find a parking space so I left my VW Bus double parked, engine running, with my dog in the passenger seat, blocking in two Police cars, and ran in to pay the fine. The lady in the window said that the paperwork was already in front of the judge, so I had to sit through the court. I looked out at my van, and decided that fate would guide me. I went into the courtroom. The Judge entered and said "When I call your name say guilty or not guilty. If you're guilty you can pay your fine and leave, and if you're not guilty, you'll have to stay and schedule a hearing." He called my name first, and I guess I was a little exuberant when I said" I'm guilty and I wanna go to the show!" the Judge says, "Well Come on doooown." kind of 'Price Is Right' style, and I ran down to collect my paperwork. The Judge asked me if I saw the show the night before, and I said "No, but I have a ticket for tonight." He said Well, you missed a hell of a show, Maybe I'll see you in there tonight." I laughed and shook my head in disbelief when I got back out to the van and found everything as I had left it. I got back to the lot and jumped back over the curb, and went right back to selling shirts. Only fifteen minutes had passed since I drove off the lot. I never did run into the judge.

very hot first set

some guy and his girlfriend were next to me on the phil side of the omni and before the show he was all smiles, telling me "Dont be surprised if i give you a hug during the show man. i just took MDA the original love drug." uhm ok, i said. 25 minutes into the first set, she asks me for my coke cup because he needed to puke! ahhh. take it take it. he was a puddle mess for the whole show.

too much of everything is evidently enough. lol

My days of "floating in air", if ya know what I mean, were done. But some folks I knew transplanted from Jersey to Atlanta hooked up with us. Well, need;les to say, one of them put a hit in my cola during the set break...I nearly pummled the guy, because I just wasn't in the mind set...ya know. Needles to say....nothing happened...but i wasn;t sure if it pins and needles for the 2nd set.

Anyway....great show. Franklin's-Stranger for a twist!! Ship of Fools....a fav.. Good 2 night run.

My next to last Dead show (last was following year at omni in atlanta also). I was quite high, scared at times during first set, but remember feeling better when Don't Ease Me In closed first set. I swear I saw Jerry with big grin on face like he was truly enjoying himself, and I felt like we made eye contact even though I was no where near stage (probably just trick from the strong acid I took, no doubt). .
......second set was great! I loved Playin' (only time saw it played live, and the encore Box of Rain brought tears of joy. I used to have a cassette recording from this concert I played over and over but no idea what happened to it.
