A few things of interest.
First, the date is 9/16/70, just before the Fillmore East "An Evening With the Grateful Dead" run.
Second, this is the day they flew on the plane with Huey Newton.
Third, I love that Bob Weir was reading the Times.
Fourth, with Paul's passing I'd like to go back and see what they said about Kantner.
Fifth, some time-stamping on American Beauty, which is just being finished. I think we knew that, but anyway.
Sixth, note they say they are going to go out and jam somewhere this night. I wonder?
Seventh, already talking about playing the base of the Great Pyramids. Badass.
Sketchy notes follow.
