When checking the tapes in the parking lot after a show, the quality of the show could always be gauged by the number of people crowding around to hear it again immediately. : )

You know it was a great show when your face muscles are sore the next day from smiling.

Another sign of a good show is when you leave enivorgated and motivated to be a better person.

-Drippy and gooey suddenly become good things.
-The tie dies come alive even when the sun is not setting (or rising)
-Clothing that once looked silly now amaze you
-Seeing a guy dancing in a trippy skirt all of a sudden seems normal and maybe even cool
-You can see the crowd breath
-It is raining at an outdoor show - sometimes with lighting or even tornado's - yet you refuse to get off the floor 'cause that shakedown is so damn hot
-You hope for torrential rains at an outdoor show to cool you off and thin out the crowds a bit
-You dance in the ugliest conditions, on the side of a hill, in a field full of mud...and you are having the time of your life
-You go sliding down the muddy hill during the show over and over, screaming "help Franklin- slip in the mud" (works well if they are playing Blues for Allah stuff)
-You swear the band members are watching you groove
-You are so in sync with the band you are grooving and spinning like mad and you manage to keep every balloon and beach ball within reach in the air without missing a beat
-You lose your shoes at the show
-You leave the show with black feet
-You realize you left the show wearing somebody elses shoes (by mistake)
-You score a miracle ticket - or any ticket to a sold out show you didn't expect to get in
-You are walking around the stadium, sure you won't get in when a kind side door opens and you get into the show
-It becomes normal to see space dancers at a show
-The first time you realize that your body automatically moves to the music, whether you want it to or not
-When you groove like a wild person in front of anyone - cops - security - with a huge shitass grin
-After the show you spend hours wandering the parking lot, having a great time
-Your feet automatically draw you to the best music you hear after the show
-You are drawn to the drum circle after the show
-You have front row seats
-You are sitting close enough to see what spit on me Bobby really means. I mean seriously, ounces of spit used to pour out all over the microphone like a projectile when he was letting loose on songs like Estimated Prophet...."I know where", vocal cords straining while he's giving it all he's got
-You catch the boys with a special guest, either warm up or walk on
-Any time Branford is in da house
-They play one or more of your special songs
-You will not leave after the show until forced to by the police, and even then you stall
-You meet strangers who become friends that you will seriously keep in touch with and who you look forward to seeing again
-You promise yourself you will return to the same venue every chance you can
-You and the entire audience see (a girl flashing / people smoking or other crazy stuff) and the do not get ejected
-You just have to moo on the way out every time you are stuck in a crowd
-You call the opening song and it's one you really wanted to hear
-You need to see the setlist right after the show
-All of your cool deadhead friends get into the show
FFF! Family is Forever!!!

May God bless and keep you always
May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others
And let others do for you

After getting to your seats in the balcony and finding that they are under construction...the security guard you complain to takes you windingly behind the scenes and brings you out and plops you front row directly in front of Jerry.

This was my hubby's 1st show.
Can't talk to you without talkin' to me. Were guilty of the same ol' things.

You spend the $20 you had saved for N2o after the show on an Instant Live.
The Deadheads gather at the rim of the volcano to dance and sing joyful songs in honor of their fallen hero.

Reminds me of you stand on that terribly long line after the show for the Instant Live 'cause you can't wait the few days for the audience tape to appear on archives nor the 3 months for the official soundboard to be uploaded
