There was a foot of snow in the lot......brrrr.....Glad we went to Phonix and 75 degrees at the next stop.....ahhhh.....then on to Oakland!

I was in the 5th row on Jerry's side. A guy I was hanging out with before the show, Bofucious, called for a "Loser" and he got it. I called for a "Bird Song" and got it. We looked at each other and just smiled.

Jerry had a false start for the Brokedown. He stepped back from the mic and just cracked up totally. I could hear it from the stage. He had this huge smile on his face. Glad I was so close to see that.

Decent show from a horrible run. The first and second nights were two of the three worst Dead shows I ever saw (along with 7/8/95).

I do remember there was snow in the lot but it was not cold! In fact for this time of year at least the last 2 nights (I didn't go to the first one) were unseasonably warm in Denver. It was like 70 degrees outside and beautiful weather.

After my disastrous experience the night before peaking after the show I was determined to stay stone cold sober which I did. Some chick in our section though shared a pipe my wife later told me must have been laced with opium with my wife and most of the people around her in our section, Towards the end of the first set I look around and I'm the only one standing and everyone else in the area I mean like 10 to 15 people nodded off sitting down. Man was I pissed. The show itself was not that great either with a lot of ridiculous Jerry vocal flubs. Way more than normal it seemed to me at the time. Despite the nice weather outside there seemed to be a pall of darkness over these shows. Perhaps that was just me but that's how I experienced these 2 nights. Freaked out the first night and then watched a whole area of a section pass out during the next night.
