Asked to describe the Grateful Dead's music, Garcia is reported to have quipped, “We were great for seconds on end.” (stolen from Cubensis site)

Where's the Bob Star? A Frantic Month of 24 Shows in 33 Days with Bobby, Fall 1983

 1983 but you get the drift.... So I know Sam Cutler came in and modified it so the Dead wouldn't play those insane 1970 schedules, but first he was just a crazy man (love you Sam!)

Those first few months in 1970 went sometime like
NY, SD, Pac North, Hawaii, NOLA, St Louis, SF, NY, Texas, SF, Zona, NY, Florida, Ohio and SF.
Those are exact I believe.

But Bobby apparently didn't listen in 1983 and didn't want to relax so this was his schedule for 33 days from October 8 to November 10 in 1983

Last Show prior:

September 24, 1983 Watsonville  he probably drove down in his Mercedes, shiny and new.

followed by two week vacation!
