first show

I'm years and years behind the times on this one. This week I discovered The Internet Archive, where you can listen to a CD quality recording of just about every concert the Grateful Dead ever gave. So of course I go right to the ones I attended, all of which are right there for the listening.

If you click play on the doohicky above you can listen to the first show I attended, at the Henry J. Kaiser Convention Center, Oakland, California, December 27, 1986. It's actually a pretty good show. And, as you can imagine, it's got a doozy of a story to go along with it, some of which might well be fiction. Science fiction. But I'm reluctant to share it here, what with grandmas, moms and in-laws reading it and all. But hey, I was 18.
