Standing on the Moon in Miami: October 25, 1989

With a new LP to promote (bands still did that in 1989), the reviews were mostly positive as the Dead  Fall Tour caravan moved from Hampton (Warlocks!), NJ, Philly and Charlotte down to the sunshine state.   You can listen to one of the new tunes Standing On The Moon in Miama by clicking above.

As usual, the Dead played Dark Star one of the nights in Miami, but the Wednesday show seems underrated.
