Band Jerry Garcia And Friends
Venue The Matrix
Location San Francisco, CA
Date 10/9/68 - Wednesday posters tickets, passes & laminates
Comments Bobby and Pigpen were absent. These shows were billed as "Jerry Garrceeah (Garcia) and His Friends" on the poster for the October 1968 schedule at The Matrix (see "The Art of Rock", page 166). However, the "on the town" column in the San Francisco Chronicle newspaper, by Ralph J. Gleason, which which gave listings of what bands were playing locally, says that "The Grateful Dead and Elvin Bishop" are playing at The Matrix on these dates (see the San Francisco Chronicle for Monday October 7, 1968 pg 49 and Wednesday October 9, 1968 pg 48).
Recordings None in circulation as of 2/02. Tapes of 10/10/68 often circulate with this date, which appears to be incorrect - see comments for 10/10/68.
