Grateful Dead Entertain 800 in Omaha on a Tuesday Schoolnight February 4, 1969



So the Grateful Dead drove over the frozen tundra to Omaha for a Tuesday night show on a freezing Nebraska night on February 4, 1969 twonights after attracting cute babes in Minnesota (see https://gratefulseconds.blogspot.com/2017/02/dead-debut-in-minnesota-attracting-cute.html?m=0 )

The Minnesots 2-2-69 set was Good Morning Little School Girl
Dark Star >
Saint Stephen >
The Eleven >
Death Don't Have No Mercy
Cryptical Envelopment >
Drums >
The Other One >
Cryptical Envelopment >
Turn On Your Lovelight

The Nebraska 2-4-1969 set (not 2-5-69 as listed some places)
[1:36:22] ; Good Morning Little Schoolgirl [#8:59] ; [2:21] ; Morning Dew [8:58] ; [1:55] ; Dark Star [13:15] > St. Stephen [5:15] > The Eleven [12:#22] > Death Don't Have No Mercy [7:04#] % Cryptical Envelopment [2:03] > Drums [0:13] > The Other One [9:30] > Alligator [3:36] > Drums [2:49] > Caution (Do Not Stop On Tracks) [16:32] > Feedback [2:30#] > And We Bid You Good Night

Seems more like the difference between The Who's sets in October 9-10 then the Dead. Still, I'd watch this same show EVERY night in 1969 if I could have, but I was 10 and my Mom wouldn't let me go by myself to Omaha on a Tuesday back then.

It's not clear to be who are the opwning band the Unknown, but deadlists called the opener  The Liberation Blues Band.
