...The start of this run I found myself staking out turn in the back row of the bleachers for a change. I met some great people that weekend and had the most wicked liquid...Thanks for the fun Doo Dah!! ..." Hey Man, isnt that a Who song...."
..ABOUT 2 WEEKS B4, I WAS IN NJ, AND A FRIEND OF MINE , BIG FAN OF THE WHO SAYS, SOMETHING LIKE , THAT WOULD BE COOL IF THE DEAD PLAYED A WHO SONG,,, NEXT THING I KNOW, IM ON THE WEST COAST, AT A SHOW, AND THEY PLAY 'TEENAGE WASTELAND' ,,, IT WAS NUTS

This show marked for me, the first time I was really impressed by Vince. I was trippi..... let's just say all of my synapses were firing, and this performance of Baby O'Reilly and Tomorrow Never Knows will always be one of my fondest, if not THE fondest, memory of the perfect Dead show........
My friends left before the encore to get a jump on vending their T-shirts in the lot. They were super bummed when they heard what they missed. Dumb hippie capitalists! LOL
My first show...had a blast. I loved Althea and Tennessee Jed.
Normally, I would have headed straight for the rail but Lee & I took our 3 yr olds, Brooks & Sarah (this was not Sarah's 1st show btw ) so we sat out in the bleachers and dealt with the common distractions which come from being so far from the stage... I remember taking Sarah out to twirl with the Spinners. What a garden of delights!.
The kids were getting sleepy but thankfully endured through the encores. Being a new mom, this was only my 3rd show after Brent passed & I have to admit I was still not over the loss and missing his wondrous harmonies - now gone forever in the live context. . I was finding myself struggling to accept Vince Welnick. but then, a little redemption......I immediately picked up on the 1st inklings of Baba O' Reilly and remember shouting out omg, Omg OMG!! like having an orgasm then was equally euphoric for TMK...
