Comments Joe Jupille researched the University of Washington Daily and the Seattle Post-Intelligencer newspapers and only found an ad for QMS and the Dead on 1/26 and 1/27 in the Friday 1/26/68 edition of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer (the weekend entertainment insert, p. 6). He turned up no mention of other Quick and the Dead shows at Eagles Auditorium. Paul Gibian also researched the 1968 Eagles Auditorium shows and came across an announcement in the Friday 1/26/68 edition of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. It's contained in the arts section column titled "Off Beat" and reads: "Quick and the Dead - the Grateful Dead and the Quick Silver Messenger Service with Head Lights Co from San Francisco will be playing the Eagles' Auditorium, 7th and Union Street, tonight and tomorrow, 8 p.m.-midnight, with an exciting road show they are calling Quick and the Dead. No age restrictions. A Boyd Grafmyre Productions presentation. Tickets: $4, at Warehouse of Music, Discount Records, Campus Music and in Bellevue at Bell, Book and Candle." DeadBase XI lists: New Potato Caboose > Born Cross-Eyed, Caution (Do Not Stop on tracks)
Recordings None in circulation as of 2/02.
