I like this show. Wah wah little red rooster and good opener.

The best Jack Straw ever played..This is a Bruce Hornsby show...

This was my first show. It's hard to remember a whole lot. I do remember remember each member of the band walking off one by one during He's Gone.....then I remember feeling about 2 inches tall during Drums & space. Sorry, a little bit of inexperience there. New York is a great energy place.

I had tickets to this show and my TWIN brother held them. I worked and so did a bunch of our friends so we did not make it down from CT to NYC quite in time, we tried...this was before cell phones...he couldn't miss the start of the show and sold my ticket...nice brother, huh? As it turned out I got 1st row tickets and came in mid-way thru FOD ha-ha. We paid $50 for our floor tickets so I missed 2.5 songs (although I heard the Jack Straw was smokin') basically I got a $10 refund for missing a little bit of the 1st set to see the rest from the front row....woo-hoo...I bet a lot would do that, especially given the set list! So...who do I run into at brother who couldn't miss one guitar lick and sold his twin brothers ticket! Ha-ha...when he found out where I was he was all the suddenly ..."get me up there Bill, please...I'm begging"....karma..karma..karma...I got him up there for the entire 2nd shift ...nothing like front row in MSG for the Dead!

So this show was an amazing Grateful Dead story and day. It started in Boone NC on the morning of 9/13. I had gotten up for class and got a call from a friend in Pinehurst NC saying we should go to MSG tomorrow. My smartass answer was come get me and we will go. Off to class then come home for a power nap before Friday night festivities. About twenty minutes into my nap. KNOCK KNOCK. It was my buddy and another friend saying "You ready to go?" I packed my clothes and some homework. Went by another friend's house on the way out of town to recruit him. Off to NYC. We arrived around dawn in NYC. We parked the VW bus and headed towards MSG. We ended up in a bar next door where my friend met a another friend that had some Maui Wowie. So being the other folks from NC's first time in NYC I said lets go to Central Park to burn. There we had fun and happened upon a voodoo sacrifice. Total NYC stuff. Then off to get our tickets some some ticket agent my friend had found. We go into this Mob bar to get the tickets. He wanted $35 for a Saturday night MSG ticket. No WAY! Between the chance I may just disappear and ponying up the extra, my buddy gave me $15 and said "We already drove from NC just get the ticket" Into the show. The nice guys in from of me offered some of their paper to us. I asked my buddy and he said yeah 2. I though he meant for him. Got it and gave it to mim. Ate mine. During friend he said this is an amazing half hit, Well I hadn't looked and got the other 3 1/2. It was a Saturday to remember. If I could remember. After we lost one of the crew. I waited in the VW for a longgggg time. Finally he should and I was the only one awake enough to drive. I got to the Maryland House on 95 and the clerk asked me how the show was. * hours and three states away. Im sure I looked awesome. Took a sleep for five hours and then did my homework before I got to Boone. NYC and back again with a Grateful Saturday night!
