bsf113 Can't think of a better first show than this! It was my last summer living in my hometown of Atlanta and 3 days before a totally different adventure driving all the way up to New Jersey to see my last two Dead shows in Giants Stadium. I only knew about 1/3 of the songs, but the My Friend opener followed by Sparkle were definitely some of the ones I loved. My buddy made sure I knew to clap during Stash and tried to prepare me for the craziness of my first Antelope. The David Bowie in the second set went over 20 minutes prompting me to turn again to my buddy: "Is this still the same song?!". Strange Design was the most beautiful song I had ever heard, I almost thought it was a dream. Scent was also one of the songs I knew and, being Jewish, appreciated/was familiar with the Klezmer breakdown in the middle. They wrapped up with the appropriate Bouncin' encore (which was still known as their one sort of "mainstream/popular" song) followed by the all time classic rock staple Frankenstein. One of the other guys I was at the show with made a very appropriate "This is what it's all about" declaration after the first notes rang out. All in all, it was an amazing first show experience. I knew I would go on to see dozens of other shows in the years after. Of course, once Jerry died, who else would I have gotten on the bus for?!
