    1. Garcia had mention that early on they seem to blow the big gigs. Having the major risk of being electrocuted and trippin balls were also factors here at Woodstock 69′

      1. Yeah I’ve heard all the horror stories about this show which is probably why I’ve never sought it out. I’m intrigued by the ten minutes of banter as they try to fix the stage.
