I was living in Scranton, PA at the time, working at a slaughterhouse of all places. John Ruby and I hung out alot, both of us having been into the Dead a few years. He cut frozen cube-shaped pieces of bad beef for Campbell's all day long on a band saw while I packed 50% soy 50% bad beef patties in boxes destined for nursing homes and the like.
The Dead were coming to Broome County Arena!
Just a 45-minute drive from Scranton--John couldn't make it, I didn't want to go alone. After work on 4/12/83, I got the urge to just wing it, without a ticket, and drive up I-81.
I got to Broome County Arena about 30 minutes before show time, and as soon as I got to the main entrance, some guy in the crowd yelled 'Ticket!', and I was in.
This show was unbelievable. First of all, the stage was only about 2 feet high, basically at ground level, and you could walk right up and almost touch the band members. Needless to say, I wormed my way up to the front and stayed there the whole show. I didn't even pee.
Garcia's voice was great, as was his playing, and the whole band was tighter than I ever saw them. The crowd went wild when they pulled out such gems as 'Wharf Rat', 'Let it Grow', the Blues for Allah classics 'Slipknot' and 'Help on the Way', and then 'Lost Sailor' and 'Terrapin'. Unbelievable sets, and I remember Garcia's hair hanging down, head bowed as he was jamming, a mere 10 feet from me. I wasn't even tripping, but I was tripping natural-like.
I will never forget that show. It still exists in timeless time-space,
really a magical show.
