great show in a super cool venue. very refreshing after charlotte, which was a real downer. best playin>ujb>playin i ever saw! better than the warlocks one at the beginning of the tour, but no dark star, that was yet to come. you could do whatever you wanted to do in the lot at this arena. cops turned their heads to anyting but violence and theft. non stop party, lots of fun!

Except for that fact that the Miami Arena is smack in the middle of one of the WORST ghettos in America...what can you say?

Little Light-only played in 89/90 up to Brent's last week. This version he was vocally strong and emotional but under control by the end.

Picasso Moon-6th/77th time played

Playin>UJB>Playin'-8th of 9th time played. I thought this was more commonly played into the 90's, guess not.

SOTM-14th/75th time played.

Dark Star or no Dark star, this night energy blew the second ones away. The DS night after this one was a real mellow and spacey show, where as this one was just a straight rager. The Second set was just chocked full of immense energy that didn't stop growing til the final notes of the encore. Also glad to hear the info patman gave. it's refreshing to hear that there were still police organizations that understood the peacefulness of the dead culture and were only there to keep the troublesome ones away. This show definitely had a boost from that.

Deal-enjoyable bluesy slower solo towards the end.

This was My very first Grateful Dead show, something that would eventually become an obvious and integral positive energy that I incorporated into my life that caused major changes(all for the better) in my life and core-way of thinking and belief system, and that cannot be over-stated or -emphasized. That said, I only saw them 5 more times, the last in Spring of 95 in Charlotte. With Jerry's passing that Summer and a friend's introducing me to the Phish from Vermont(and 1st show 11/19/95)coinciding, I not once saw any of the multiple configurations of the, now, Jerry-less Grateful Dead. Jerry Garcia's absence was too much to overcome and also removed the heart and soul and the main reason they appealed so much to me. RIP, JerBear.
