    Exact opposite here, just over 100 shows starting in 85 and never made it to the left coast, Alpine 89 was the furthest west I saw shows. Easily 65%-70% of my shows were between Philly, Boston, NJ/NYC/LI or DC/Landover.

    Yeah I started in 85 as well but most of mine were Bay Area shows with Sac, LA and Oregon close behind. 90% California. I always heard it was a different vibe back east so I never went.

    Bulk of my shows were NYC, Philly, etc, but I did probably 15 or so West Coast shows (including Jerry Band).

    85 or so GD shows from 1985-95 all over the place. Lots in the northeast with a bunch at MSG and NY Metro venues, Philly, DC, a whole bunch around CA, Eugene 90/93/94, Red Rocks a few times, Telluride, Park West UT, Vegas a few times - like I said all over. I've seen most of the post Jerry incarnations but not D&C yet. Saw Jerry a bunch of times in CA, lots of Phil shows over the last 20 years, a couple of Bobby shows with him in different bands from Kingfish to Ratdog to duets with Rob going back over 30 years, many of the other family bands including Robert Hunter four or five times and other Dead family projects and a whole bunch of cover bands over the years.

    Sounds fun. I got shut out of that but did get some Springsteen on broadway tickets for the wife. Iím scared to do the math but I think I did whole GD tours for the cost of two of those tickets...

    Yeah, the energy was through the roof. You wouldn't have been able to deal with it. Milquetoast, frail and scared. Jerry loved the east coast.
    First show was '83, never made it further west than the Carrier Dome in '84. That was a freaking party. Caught 60 shows, 57 Brent, 3 with that other guy. 90's Dead sucks.
    1985 is my favorite year, followed closely by '84.
    Richmond '85 were the two best shows I ever saw.

    The parking lot scenes sure were different. Not sure the shows were.

    84 Ďcuse jack straw!
    East coast energy and shows were better post touch of grey for sure, and you could argue that throughout the 80s. West coast was too cool, but I liked both. And I donít listen to anything w that other guy. So bad.

    87 was my favorite year from Easter at Irvine to October at Shoreline but it sort of started with Kingfish and JGB for Halloween 86 at The Kaiser. That was an outrageously good show and great time I know Bobby has a thing for late 88 and 89 but I thought Brent was a wild card at that point and he was off more often than he was on. I think some of the shows with Hornsby were straight up fire, he got Jerry boppin' more often than I had ever seen him before other than with the JGB. There were a few stinkers after that though as Jerry was just so fucked up sometimes, I actually left one show because it just wasn't much fun with him forgetting words and totally losing his place but that was after I bailed on trippin' so that may have been it because plenty of people seemed to be having a good time. I did see a bunch of great shows those last few years though and can't share the distaste for Vince.
