Until someone has anything more definitive to suggest, I'll go with the current data on the PCM tape. had this to say:

COMMENTS  Book Of The Dead Heads and DeadBase IX list the Dead at Fillmore West on this date.  There is tape in circulation with this date, labeled "Garcia, Nelson & Wakefield, the Matrix, San Francisco 2/19/69," 90 SBD reels, but it is not Grateful Dead and (probably not Wakefield either).  Dave Sorochty's research in the archives of San Francisco newspapers was unable to turn up any mention of either of these shows, although the paper generally listed Matrix shows and ran ads for the Fillmore West.  It seems very doubtful that the Dead played Fillmore West.  The SF Chronicle did list Casady & Kaukonen at the Matrix on this date, with Weird Herald opening.  If Garcia, Nelson and whoever did play a set at the Matrix on this date, they was unbilled (or were they "Weird Herald"?).
