Band Grateful Dead
Venue Memorial Auditorium - Ohio University
Location Athens, OH
Date 11/23/68 - Saturday posters tickets, passes & laminates
Comments Free concert. DeadBase XI and the official Book of the Deadheads note this is tom Constanten's first show as an official member of the Dead. At the Garcia vs. Garcia trial a couple of years ago Phil had to testify and he spoke about this very show! He was asked to date a letter that Jerry had written to Mountain Girl where he mentions a concert in Athens, Ohio. Phil was absolutely positive the letter was from 1968 because they only played in Athens once - on 11/23/68. That was because so many students from Ohio University in Athens came to the show in Columbus on 11/22/68 (a long drive - about 1 1/2 hours or so) that the band decided to go to Athens and put on a free show for them!
Recordings None in circulation as of 2/02.
