Re: Venues you'd like Furthur to play

I think they should book a 900- 1500 capacity boat and have cruise style gig around the Maine coast. Maybe with some supporting acts. It would have to be in the summer of course but lots of towns around here have the capacity for cruise ships to port and there are a lot of state and fed owned islands that we could explore. Not to mention seals and whales and the most beautiful coast in the world.

I've been to Maine, and lots of various coasts around the world. Nothing beats the Oregon coast for me.

1st Bank Warning
There were people getting thrown in their in-house jail by security guards before the show even began a few years ago for fungus and whatever they could witness happening. People were just standin' around on the floor being low key about it and the guards were slappin' people in there for whatever they saw, sayin' they were going back out into the crowd to snag someone else. There are some of us that will go to Red Rocks, no problem, but when it comes to the 1st Bank, they will not go. I would rather see them at McNichols than in Broomfield any day.


C'mon McNichols?? Really?? I've been to the first Bank for dozens of concerts beyond Furthur and have never seen this jail or had any issues at all. Of course I'm not walking around the floor slinging mushrooms either but still ... I don't not believe you since I've heard this from others (I'm sure there are busts and all) but it's also not anywhere as shady as you make it out to be. Don't scare all the visitors I personally stand by that place 100%. If you're selling drugs and get popped, well then I don't know what to tell ya...

Did someone mention that my friend was slinging? Because he wasn't, he was eating, not that kind of friend anyway. You don't believe me, and you've heard it from others, that seems more reason to be cautious. This happened 2 years ago and I didn't hear anything happening last year, so hopefully they have lightened up.

Ok I used a confusing double negative. I should have simply written that I believe you. But again, if ya get popped for slinging, selling, holding or eating drugs then I don't know what to tell ya...

I have never seen the Oregon coast from out on the water like I have the Maine coast but I like all the islands around here.

I'll throw this up again. I would still love to see Furthur come back to Rochester to play the Highland bowl.
I can't come down, it's plain to see.
I can't come down, I've been set free.

Saw them there in '83, + '87. Great place. A little on the dusty side though. Ventura that is.


I was there in 83 also. Its the only place you can take a dip in the ocean during set break.
Went to dinner after the show and sat at table next to Jerry and his peeps. We were actually warned about "undesirables" prior to being seated only to find out it was Jerry and pals. I think it was his birthday if I remember.


Good story!

Since New Orleans has been mentioned, I'd like to share this link with a bit of interesting theater history of that city. Some of it made me laugh, and it just goes to show there's nothing new under the sun.
