A sweet little show. Our lot experience started off right ( and we knew we were home) when the guy parked next to us pulled out a pet carrier and let out the baby wild swan he was caretaking since it had been abandonded by it's mother a few weeks back. I love how the variety of show attendees never ends. The lot experience was a bit more subdued than what we were used to due to the cops cracking down somewhat on the drinking and vending. Nothing draconian, but lots of petty hassles. The yellow jackets were mellow and having to go around and explain that the authorities were not going to allow vending or alcohol drinking. It was a polite thing to do; they looked embarrassed, not likeing to have to tell people they couldn't party. They told the vendors they just had to see them start to pack it up, and then they'd walk away. The cops were non-agressive in their approach; if they saw the alcohol it had to be poured out, but anyone with sense was able to drink as much as they wanted, you just had to keep an eye out. The crowd was chill, lots of nice interesting people to talk to. Lots of respect and good attitudes. After we had our fill of schmoozing, we went in. Lots of room to spread out in, large steep lawn, and a nice concourse filled with overpriced food and drink. I walk around there and forget what venue I'm at, it's so trippy, kind of like a county fair layout. A really nice wishful beginning to the show, but we were ready to have a good time, rain or no. Headed up the hill for the good dancing space. I won't review the music, that being redundant since it can be heard by those interested, except to say that for me, as usual, it was too short. But then the rain came at the end, and we knew it was time to go. A good time, filled with all the usual best a show has to offer; and the anticipation of doing it all again tomorrow.

my 1st Furthur show... last time i saw Phil and Bob it was 17 years ago and the fat man was still alive and kickin'.

i really enjoyed the june 3rd show... great setlist and a very solid performance. i preferred this show to the show on the 4th (although the 4th was also excellent).

i can't say that i came away with the same amazing "exhuberation" i had after my first GD show on 10/26/85, but i had a lot of fun and am looking forward to hitting the eugene and monterey shows.

Illuminaughty - glad to hear you liked your stay at the Green Tortoise Guest House, also known as Sin City Hostel to the Australians. I've stayed there periodically over the past 16 years or so, since it first opened in the former Vanessi's Restaurant. The guys renovating it back then told me the upper floors had been a brothel, and they had to remove the hot tub from the top floor because all the cavorting had soaked the wood floor and ruined it. I believe the sauna is still there, however. I loved staying there in the 90's and watching the action on the street from my room. Back then SF was still a Navy Port of Call, and you could see the guys in uniform running around Broadway with the girls. I love everything about this neighborhood. It's the heart of the Barbary Coast. The Stone was located down the block at Montgomery and Broadway, and the Dead recorded an album in the copper-clad flat-iron building that you see looking down Kearny. Across the street was a punk club called the Mabuahey Gardens (Mayberry Gardens to the stoners). I used to walk back to North Beach alone after Warfield shows, straight up Kearny or Montgomery, and felt so safe and right at home. There's a great book in the Images of America series called San Francisco's North Beach and Telegraph Hill with some awesome photos. I'm really into the history and architecture of SF, and I've spent quite a bit of time photographing different neighborhoods. North Beach/Barbary Coast/Chinatown is still my favorite. The past is present and palpable. Another nice place to stay, though not as clean as it used to be, is the Hostel at Fort Mason. Beautiful almost rural setting, great views of Crissy Field, the GG Bridge,Marin headlands, Aquatic Park with Hyde St. Pier & boat museum, Fisherman's Wharf. I love this town. Virtually every part of the city is rich in history, and a joy to be in.

Hehhe.. here I am a month and a half later and I couldn't agree more. Show was so great.

DAMN I wish I could just pack up and go on tour, and still be able to bring home the bacon for the wife and kids

And unfortunately, I have to miss Monterey as I am Best Man for my best friend's wedding that Saturday.

WHEN IS THE NEW YEARS SHOW AT BG CIVIC BEING ANNOUNCED??!!?
