Today in Grateful Dead History: June 9, 1973 - RFK Stadium, Washington, D.C.

Today’s steller show is the “other” RFK Stadium show from 1973, the laid back cousin to tomorrow’s barn-burner of a show with Dickey Betts and Butch Trucks from the Allman Brothers Band.   373 more words

Today in Grateful Dead History: October 25, 1985 - Sportatorium, Pembroke Pines, FL

The Sportatorium sounds like the name of a team handball arena in Bulgaria, but it happens to have been located in South Florida, which is pretty close.   391 more words

Today in Grateful Dead History: September 21, 1974 - Palais Des Sports, Paris, France

I encourage all of you who bash Bob Weir to listen to this show immediately.  Unfortunately, Bob’s guitar is almost completely absent from this recording, which makes the rest of the Dead sound like a very hollow version of the Jerry Garcia Band with a better bass player.   272 more words

Today in Grateful Dead History: August 29, 1983 - Silva Hall, Eugene, OR

1983 has drawn the short straw on this site, with fewer entries than any year except for 1967.  I don’t know why I’ve ignored 1983, but we’re going to make up for it this week, with the first of three shows in a row from Eugene, Oregon. 267 more words
