Spac 84 _ I was there to prior to Richmond... and the epicness of Richmond especially 11-1 can't be denied. That said this show holds a wrm spot in my heart.... I was callin Werewolves the whole 10 hour drive down..my friends said I was nuts. Pumpkins onstage! Many folks dressed up. & I still call it SPACE>Werewolves to open ( I can still remember like yesterday running into my big black basketball eyed friend and him saying "I am so fuckin disoriented ..space to open???WTF!!!! LOL) Also THE best LL rain EVER. First set was GGGGGGGGRRRRRRRRRRRReat. I think the peruvian marching soldiers gotta hold a Bob during the setbreak.. listen to his freaked out high pitched wailing during"just gotta poke around" LOL...Shakedown was HOT... rest of set good not great. On the fun scale EASILY a ten.
You said it about the opening space segment. This was my first show dosing (and it was a doozy!) and I remember turning to my brother and asking him what the hell was going on and wondering if this was how the whole show was going to sound. I agree about LL Rain-best ever! Shakedown was also truly memorable. During set break I recall walking around the hallway ring seriously needing to figure out if I had pissed my pants or not. I could not tell wet from dry-turns out I didn't! Also the people brewing mushroom tea right out in the hall. And those pumpkins like you mentioned. I wandered down to the stage at the end and asked for one of the inflatable ones that had floated up on stage. One of my brothers friends was completely out of his gourd after the show and freaked out on me about it. I still feel uneasy around him to this day. I could go on and on because I love reminisciing about this show! You are alos super correct about 11/1/85 I play the hell out of that Dick's Picks selection. Hey Walk, thanks for stirring my memory!
