I have noticed this as well. I don't know what the reason is but i feel like it has to due with lack of interest. I hate to say it but heads out west might be getting to old to keep this band playin hard. i know they love San Fran and Cali more than anywhere so i have to ask myself why play so much in NYC or north east. i have been out to shows in san fran about 5 times and i always notice the more laid back (less clapping, singing along and cheering) than back east. you guys have your own flavor and i dig it but as a band i would want people getting up out of there seats and rockin. I noticed that two years in a row the night before NYE in san fran has not sold out of sold out really really late, that would never happen in NYC. those tickets would be lone gone the first day. Maybe it is about $$$ but i feel like it might be about interest.
love you west coast heads, without which i might never have found the dead... always love to yall
Younger folks out West don't get The Dead?
At least it ain't Texas!
