“REVIEW: stella
As a new fan of the Dead it was years before I realized the importance of the tears streaming down
the face of the girl beside me. She seemed to be having a religious experience. Now I know why”

REVIEW: 33rd Anniversary
I was in college in the northeast in 1980. Two of my friends and I decided to go tour the west for
a few weeks and hit some shows along the way. This tour also included the ”Big 15th
Anniversary Show” in Boulder Co. After driving straight from NYC we see a few tall building in
the middle of nowhere. It was Des Moines. Head over to the civic center. It was a warm day and
dead heads were in the fountains out front. We get inside and this was by far one of the smallest
venues I’ve ever seen them perform at. After seeing the 3 blazing shows at the Nassau plus the
show in Hartford Ct, we were sure this was going to be something special. Perhaps our
exceptions were too high. This show was a bit of a let down. The show was fairly typical for this
time period with a few highlights including a hot Let it Grow, Eye of the World and Comes a

REVIEW: not a bad show
definitely tasty LIG
