This was my first proper Dead show after a barely tolerable rain delay at Bonnaroo. The show was sold out, but after a call to a friend, I scored some pavilion seats just 15 rows back from the stage.

The highlights were "Bird Song," "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds" and "He's Gone." Curiously, I was not a fan of "Ripple" at the time, despite its current standing as one of my favorite songs of all time.

Joan Osbourne, who had toured with The Dead the prior summer, joined the band for several tunes.

I sold some weed to a mother with some young children in tow. Parents today.
