>although you do not list the date, there was a concert at the rock
>palace in brooklyn on thursday november 12, 1970. this may have been
>one of the finest g/d concerts- ever. it was an old lowe's movie
>palace tucked under the el. it was a rainy night and not many people
>showed up, maybe 500 in all. the band experienced technical
>problems and the show started late, nine or maybe nine-fifteen. we
>expected to see the acoustic dead open but the new riders with
>garcia and kreutzmann opened the show and played a rousing set. the
>changeover took place and the dead finally arrived on stage. they
>were introduced by allison steele, the nightbird, and the show
>started. they were awful. mercifully, after two or three songs they
>stopped. weir came to the mike and said. "I broke a few strings,
>It's going to take a while for me to replace them and tune up. So,
>relax and we'll be back." that was ok. we spotted pigpen walking to
>the rear of the theater. two friends of mine, willy and goofy went
>over and started talking to him and soon all three disappeared. the
>time melted away, and pretty soon, maybe an hour later, the band
>started tuning on stage. they were waiting for pigpen. the greasy
>cowboy hat made an appearance on stage left and the audience started
>to cheer. they started to play. they were hot. after the song,
>garcia spoke to the technical staff. he asked them to turn off the
>stage lights and turn up the house lights which the staff did. the
>band lit into another song, blast-off successful. prior to that
>date, i had been to twenty-five g/d concerts. i had seen some good
>ones 2/11 and dead at midnight at the filmore east. a few shows at
>the filmore west, and at port chester. i'd also seen some bad shows,
>woodstock and monterrey pop come to mind plus some others at the
>filmore east. this night they played. starting from eleven with one
>break they played until four am. it was the best show i'd ever seen
>by anyone, bar none. some of the songs, a great love light, st
>stephen, and a show stopping it's a man's world. i wish thirty-five
>years later i could remember more titles but, more importantly, i
>remember the sense of having been apart of and seen something unique
>and special. par
