Nice Blazer, Kid

JGJK: Eisenhower Auditorium, Penn State University, November 16, 1984

Archives of the Penn State Daily Collegian are available online at, which might prove useful for others (I have found lots of Jerry-related stuff).

Just for giggles, I thought I'd post this little snippet from the police blotter over the weekend of the Jerry Garcia/John Kahn show (Robert Hunter opening) at Eisenhower Auditorium on 11/16/84:

Tee hee.

Good scheme, too bad it didn't work. Also funny to me because it's so east coast. Hard to imagine anyone at, say, CU-Boulder thinking a university blazer would draw attention away from them. :)



  1. how do you know this scam hadn't been a great winner for years? For all we know, the guy snuck into every concert for his entire college career, until this one.

    The scientific approach would be to swipe a CU blazer and walk into the next concert--it might be a proven winner of a strategy!

    The PSU digital archive is great.

  2. Ha!

    SUNY Stony Brook's is good too:

    I am going to investigate more college papers.

    Northern New York Historical Papers also has some stuff at

  3. And, a CU blazer is really just a fleece.
