Actually Jerry got pissed that so many a hole undercovers busted us that he pledged to not come back to Nassau and did not for many years.
BTW go listen to the great great Canned Heat do Sic Em Pigs....

did jerry tell you this from the grave? wtf are you talking about, a quick look at the gd shows at nassau showing them playing many shows right up to jerrys untimely demise. they played nassau: 3/31/93, 4/1/93, 4/2/93, 4/4/93, 4/5/93 and 3/23/94, 3/24/94, 3/25/94, 3/27/94, 3/28/94. Thats some boycott !!!!! WTF is all this speculation regarding a boycott? seems like they played there pretty regularly right up to the end !!

From 85 to 90 they avoided the place like the plague. This story is fairly common knowledge among deadheads.

not trying to bust anyones stones or anything but a quick search on the setlist program shows no shows there from march 85-march 90 and then they were there a few times a year from 90-95 but yea I'd say 5 years is a decent amount of time to stay away from not liking the scene.....

Also the Grateful Dead never played CT after 1990 and I've been wondering why after seeing that but I imagine that was because of the scene there as well?.....

I had to double check the base on that one myself, I do remember hearing or reading an interview with Jerry (not from beyond the grave smart guy) where he talked about this, anyone else remember that one?

In response to the people saying I'm dumb for not wanting to py the fine, that's not it at all. I would have absolutely no problem paying the fine would have payed it that night even, all I'm saying is that now I'm expected to fly back stay in a hotel etc so a $100 fine becomes a $1000 fine. If there is way to pay the fine (which I'm going to look into) I will.

It would be great if you could fly out there, stay in a nice hotel, eat some fancy food, etc, etc... then write the whole thing off as a business expense because you were there to take care of government business. Free vacation!
