Lost Live Dead Individual Show List

A contemporary map of Sir Francis Drake's voyages
In order to ease navigation, primarily for me, I am posting a list of my write-ups of individual shows. As long as I am making the list, everybody may as well benefit. Listed below are links to posts on Lost Live Dead and Hooterollin' Around that feature a specific show or run of shows. Of course, having gone that far, I listed just about everything else, too.

One goal of my blogs has been to identify Grateful Dead shows, or shows by band members, that are not part of any existing database. A related goal has been to contextualize shows that are known, but lack historical background. I have written about shows both individually, and in the context of a run of shows--usually for a given month. However, I have also included those itineraries in the list below. I have also included specialized lists, such as lists of shows for a given city or venue. Some posts are listed twice, if they have more than one reference. Shows that are only mentioned in a tour itinerary do not have an individual entry.

The shows listed below were either thoroughly unknown, canceled or lacked some meaningful historical context. I have made a few comments on this list, but in general you will need to read the posts to see what I am trying to add to the historical record. Since existing online databases which list Grateful Dead performances, such as Deadlists, Dead.net and Deadbase, have not been updated for some time, this list has also been designed to act as an overlay to the existing record. In the case of The Jerry Site, most of the shows listed here are linked to the main list there. Here and there, I have even included a few posts from other blogs, just for historical completeness.

The Warlocks Tour Itinerary , May-December 1965

December 11, 1965 Acid Test, Big Beat Club, Palo Alto, CA
I was convinced at the time I wrote this post that the Big Beat Acid Test was December 18, but I am now inclined towards the date listed here. In any case, I have a picture of the building that housed the Big Beat club.

Timothy Leary does his act in Los Angeles, and the Grateful Dead are there too, in this largely forgotten show.

The last booking at the Carousel Ballroom before the Grateful Dead took over was, appropriately enough, for Buck Owens.

September 21, 1968, Pacific Recording, San Mateo, CA: The Jam with Vic and David
On an unbooked Saturday night, the Grateful Dead invite Vic Briggs and David Crosby to jam with them in the studio, and they don't invite Bob Weir.

Grateful Dead Tour Itinerary , March-April 1969

Grateful Dead Tour Itinerary , March 1969
I had learned a lot more about March, 1969, so I did another post updating the previous one for March of that year.

April 4-6, 1969 Avalon Ballroom, San Francisco, CA: Grateful Dead/Flying Burrito Brothers/AUM
First I wrote about my perception that the sound of Sneeky Pete Kleinow's pedal steel guitar on an Owsley sound system may have been an inspiration for Garcia to buy another one for himself. Then, in a different post, I wrote about Wayne Ceballos and AUM.

May 10, 1969 Rose Palace, Pasadena, CA: Farewell Cream movie/Grateful Dead/Kaleidoscope

May 16, 1969, Gym, Campolindo High School, Moraga, CA: Grateful Dead/Frumious Bandersnatch/Velvet Hammer

June 29, 1969 The Barn, Rio Nido, CA: Grateful Dead
I had originally wondered if this show was canceled, but now I think the Dead played, but without the opening acts, as Rio Nido Dance Hall was much smaller than the Santa Rosa Fairgrounds.

July 16, 1969 Longshoreman's Hall, San Francisco, CA: Grateful Dead/Marmaduke & Friends/Cleveland Wrecking Company
The debut of the as-yet unnamed New Riders Of The Purple Sage.

Grateful Dead/New Riders Tour Itinerary , October 1969

A KQED-tv special is filmed on a Wednesday night at the Dog.

February 12, 1970 Ungano's, New York, NY Grateful Dead/Creedmore State
It remains in question whether the Dead actually played this show between Fillmore East dates, for which they were advertised. My current view--always subject to change--is that they did not play it, but that they had already played a different show at Ungano's (the subject of an unwritten post).

Grateful Dead Tour Itinerary , February 1970

Grateful Dead Equipment Truck Tour Itinerary , January-February 1970
This itinerary attempted to analyze how much the Grateful Dead equipment truck had to drive during this period. I don't think it was that accurate, but it was still an intriguing exercise.

Grateful Dead/Jerry Garcia Tour Itinerary, March 1970

March 12, 1970 Inn Of The Beginning, San Francisco, CA: New Riders Of The Purple Sage
I now believe this show was never played. The post has a good Comment thread, however.

March 12-14, 1970 Inn Of The Beginnnig and New Orleans House, New Riders Of The Purple Sage (canceled shows)
I now think that these advertised shows were never played because the New Riders had no bass player.

Grateful Dead/Jerry Garcia Tour Itinerary , March 1970
For a fuller picture of the initial meetings of Garcia and John Kahn at The Matrix this month, see the John Kahn Performance History 1970 post.

New Riders, June 69-March '70 [New Riders Bassist]
As part of my obsession with the bass players for the early New Riders, I summarize the known touring schedule of the band during that period.

April 26, 1970 Sound Storm Festival, York Farm, Poynette, WI: Grateful Dead/others

April 28, 1970 Peninsula School, Menlo Park, CA: New Riders Of The Purple Sage

May 1, 1970 Gymnasium, Alfred State College, Alfred, NY: Grateful Dead/New Riders Of The Purple Sage
About 250 people end their college term by seeing the Grateful Dead. I did that a few times, but there were a lot more than 250 people.

May 3, 1970 Wesleyan College, Middletown, CT Grateful Dead
One of the great Lost Live Dead posts, except for the minor fact that's it not on my blog nor written by me.

May 17, 1970 Fairfield University, Fairfield, CT: Grateful Dead
It remains mysterious as to whether the Dead actually played this show, but it appears they probably didn't.

July 30-August 1, 1970 Lion's Share, San Anselmo, CA: Acoustic Grateful Dead/New Riders Of The Purple Sage
A largely forgotten acoustic Dead show in Marin, all but unpublicized. Not from my blog, but it has to be on this list.

October 26, 1970 Lion's Share, San Anselmo, CA: Grateful Dead/others
This was Janis Joplin's wake. I had thought it was November 1 or 2, but I am now persuaded it was October 26.

November 9-10, 1970 Action House, Island Park, NY Grateful Dead

November 11-14, 1970 46th Street Rock Palace, Brooklyn, NY Grateful Dead

December 21, 1970 Pepperland, San Rafael, CA: Acoustic Grateful Dead/New Riders Of The Purple Sage/Howard Wales/Jerry Hahn Brotherhood
Not my post, but a true "lost" show, and a great blog post, complete with photos. The Dead didn't even play acoustic, but David Crosby was there--quite a night.

December 23, 1970 Winterland, San Francisco, CA: Acoustic Grateful Dead/Hot Tuna/New Riders of The Purple Sage/Lizard
The Grateful Dead are billed as the Acoustic Dead, and the post speculates on the various reasons they were billed that way and yet did not play acoustic at all.

Jerry Garcia played banjo with James And The Good Brothers.

June 1971 New Monk, Berkeley, CA: The Grateful Dead with Merl Saunders
A fellow blogger pieces together some long-obscured facts and figures out the Grateful Dead showed up for a Garcia/Saunders gig at the New Monk. It's also possible, even likely, that they played again in March, 1972, by which time the venue had changed its name to Keystone Berkeley.

July 2, 1971 Fillmore West, San Francisco, CA: Grateful Dead/New Riders Of The Purple Sage/Rowan Brothers
The blueprint for future Grateful Dead live FM broadcasts, more or less.

A long-lost Garcia ensemble, where he played fusion music with Vince Guaraldi, Mike Clark and others at a San Francisco fern bar.

June 30, 1972 Memorial Auditorium, Kansas City, KS: New Riders of The Purple Sage/Loggins & Messina
It appears that Betty Cantor was on tour with the Riders, probably doing the sound, and thus came to tape Loggins & Messina's opening set. It seems likely that Betty's tape was how Jerry Garcia heard Kenny Loggins' cover of "Friend Of The Devil" as a slow ballad.

July 18, 1972 Roosevelt Stadium, Jersey City, NJ: Grateful Dead

July-December 1969 (Philadelphia IV)
January-June 1969 (Philadelphia III)

Crumbling old Roosevelt Stadium and Jersey City played a far more prominent role in the history of The Grateful Dead than most people think.

Keystone Berkeley, 2119 University Avenue, Berkeley, CA
Jerry Garcia played this nondescript beer joint in downtown Berkeley over 200 times, so it's a critical part of the Garcia legacy.

Keystone Overview
Jerry Garcia played the four clubs in the Keystone "family" (Keystone Korner, Keystone Berkeley, Keystone Palo Alto and The Stone) over 400 times.

Theatre 1839, 1839 Geary Avenue, San Francisco, CA
Although there were not many concerts here, the temple next to the Fillmore was still an interesting story.

David Nelson, David Torbert and The New Delhi River Band played at The Yellow Brick Road in Fremont (with the Wakefield Loop) on the weekend of the Monterey Pop Festival (June 16-17, 1967)
Performance Histories
I have made efforts to create complete Performance Histories for certain bands who were connected to the Grateful Dead, and also for John Kahn.

Gospel Oak, Mountain Current, 33 1969-73 (Matt Kelly II)
The Matt Kelly story continues

The Smokey Grass Boys, 1966-67
Even by the standards of this blog, the Smokey Grass Boys were obscure. David Grisman, Rick Shubb and Herb Pedersen had a bluegrass band after Jerry Garcia and almost every other young bluegrass musician had "gone electric."

Bill Kreutzmann's All-Stars 1984
I am nothing if not thorough.This obscure group played 4 shows in 1984. David Nelson played guitar for the band.

Kingfish with Bob Weir, 1984-87

Merl is reviewed (by Oakland Tribune jazz critic Russ Wilson) with no reference whatsoever to Jerry Garcia, since they hadn't yet met.

George Tickner-Guitar (Spring 1973)
Future Journey guitarist George Tickner played a little bit with the Garcia-Saunders group in 1973.

John Hartford-fiddle, Old And In The Way
Hartford was a member--everyone says so--but it's hard to say when exactly he played with them.

Paul Humphrey-drums (1974)

  2. I saw aum with the dead about Jan 6, 1969 at the Avalon and later bought their album when it came out. One of their songs, "God is Back in Town", was a real religious shocker to me that someone would sing such. It had a major impact on me. Two years later when my English teacher at Tamalpias high in Mill Valley asked the class, "Does anyone here believe in God?" , i was the only one. And when he asked me for an explaination, i answered that in the same way i recognize man's hand when i look at a pair of sissors, a phone or a car, i recognize God's when i look at a tree, a mountain or another human.
