Dear Dude On The Dusborne Matrix Of 11/30/79 During Drums.
Stop yelling “sit down.” You are more annoying to me than the people standing up are to you. Stop that right now in 1979.
Thoughts on the Dead
p.s. Great show, and besides for the bros being all bro about things, it is a treat for two reasons. First of all: the Dead perform their music well. (Sometimes they did not, so this fact should be mentioned. The Dead always meant to play well–I’m not accusing them of malfeasance–but once in a while, they did not achieve strong bone. It happens. Stanley Theater in ’79? Strong bone.) Second: the first set’s the first set, no real weirdness, but then the second set is the most front-loaded one I’ve ever seen.
Look at this bullshit:
Fire On The Mountain
Playin’ In The Band
Saint Of Circumstance
That is a top-heavy list; if it wasn’t buttressed within the pull quote, it would topple.
Whatever: go listen to the Grateful Dead; turn it up loud, too.
