We were on our way to Red Rocks, with a stop in Tempe along the way. I got a ride with the tape man, and his friend Paul, who I dubbed the 'fruit man', as he would eat nothing but organic fruits & vegetables. Anyway, I brought along my stickers to sell, but my luck was bad here. The cops were so hard-core, that they confiscated a handful of stickers, twisted my arm, tried to take my T-shirt, but it wasn't a Dead shirt, and threatened to arrest me. All this for some $1 stickers. After that, I could see why Arizona is so backwards to not even honor Martin Luther King's birthday.
Because of this, I had very little money to even buy a ticket to the show, I had to eat too. So I just found a hill outside the place and listened to it. When it was over, my companions came out and told me that it was the worst Dead show that they had ever seen. I guess it worked out OK. If I was going to miss a show, might as well be this one.
