My First Warfield Show, February 16, 1982

This was the first full Grateful Dead concert I ever saw in San Francisco, less than six years after I started seeing the band. It was also my first $25 ticket to benefit SEVA.

You could still see the Grateful Dead in San Francisco with only about 3,000 friends, but by now, you had to pay up. 

There was a pretty nifty setlist, a mighty Shakedown ending in Might As Well set one.
And a fluid continuous set two with a big Playin in the Band sandwich. 

Shakedown Street-> Greatest Story Ever Told, Friend Of The Devil-> Little Red Rooster, Peggy-O-> Me & My Uncle-> Big River, Althea, Looks Like Rain, Might As Well 

China Cat Sunflower-> I Know You Rider-> Playin' In The Band-> Terrapin Station-> Drums-> Truckin'-> Nobody's Fault But Mine-> Black Peter-> Playin' In The Band-> Around & Around-> Good Lovin', E: Don't Ease Me In

pg 500, volume 2, Taping Compendium, Adam MacConnell

The shows were announced three weeks after the monster New Year's show on January 23

and within a week were being offered for $100
