Dead Show/podcast for 3/18/16

This week I decided to bring you a relatively unknown but very nice sounding show from the spring of 1982. This is from the University of California at Davis on Sunday, March 17th, 1982. The boys come out and Bobby announces that they forgot something last night and they proceed to play 'One More Saturday Night' as the opener. A very nice Sugaree follows, then after an Uncle->Mexicali, a very solid 'Bird Song'. The band is tight here in the first set and I really enjoy the rocking energy of this period of 1982. Ramble On Rose, Althea, and a great Let It Grow are among the highlights of this excellent first set.

I remember the Davis show well - I had been living in Tahoe and skiing Squaw in an epic powder year with trunks of fresh bud from our fields in Grass Valley. Unfortunately I got mono some time before the Davis show, so I retreated to Berkeley to recuperate. Thus I missed the Reno show the night before - when they "forgot to do" One More Sat Night - but dragged myself up to Davis, finally feeling a lot better, in time to join my crew of happy campers and the whole Bay Area dead scene for a wonderful show!
