10 years ago, my dad and I caught the only Ratdog show at Chicago Theatre, 3/7/14. It's really strong top to bottom. :guitarred :listen :dance

A favorite of Nycdave and strangerinboulder, 3/9/81 at MSG. They both rave about the China Rider, I concur. Video below links to the GD playlist of the release (top right corner).

With a brutal, heart pulpitating, Stranger opener. This show is nuts. One of my top three. Thanks, Patch!

30 years ago, the GD east coast spring tour started 3/16/94 in Chicago. My dad attended this show (probably all 3 in the run). Jack Straw is hot out of the gate, "Windy City fillies" in Minglewood was a nice touch, High Time is sublime, and Easy Answers > Don't Ease is a rockin close to set 1. Set 2 highlights include the second-to-last Dark Star (first verse only and kinda fast), an acoustic LLR, New Speedway tease before Miracle, SOTM, and Scarlet Fire of course. :listen

Next up in the Chicago 94 run, St. Patrick's Day 3/17/94. Jerry's got an acoustic tone for Althea that fits nicely, Touch and Wang Dang open the show with high energy. Jerry teases TN Jed before Lazy River. A rather short show with a solid setlist, playing, and strong Dew to close set 2. Always love hearing Rain.

You know it's gonna get Stranger, Bobby sings to kick off their third night in Chicago 3/18/94, and Jerry responds with Deal as the second song of the night. Jerry singing and playing with conviction, too. Bob picks up the acoustic and off we go to El Paso :listen I like how Vince plunks out lines from the original version. Cool, albeit Garcia-less, Space (he shows up after the first refrain of TOO). All around solid 8.5 late-era show.

I remember it was a good show but not a standout show by Hartford historical standards but with the Dew I'm easily impressed. Sleep in my car on the nearby park an the cops clear off the park at sunrise. Let's say my day from there was great until it wasn't. A two night run in Hartford had the authorities on High alert and I can say that this was the only time recorded where I was in the city where a show was happening that I didn't go in. More to the story best told in person but I will say that I should have taken heed of the prior nights encore: ain't no Luck, I learned to duck!

A few days before this year’s Palm Sunday, enjoy JGB in Pittsburgh from 3/19/78, containing the last known version of the song Palm Sunday by the band.

Enjoy this crisp, crisp video from Richfield 3/21/94. GSET > Bertha and Picasso kick off both sets "with a big can of kick ass," as a reviewer states on Setlist Program. Of course one of the highlights is Lovelight > Stella Blue > Lovelight in the second set; Speedway > Victim > He’s Gone is pretty heady too. Jerry adds a Matilda jam with Phil, Vince, and the drummers before Drums too! Were any of you there that night?
