How about this one:
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, followed by
Bob Dylan backed up by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers,
followed by The Grateful Dead.
There was hope that Dylan would sit in with the
Dead, but it was not to be.
It was on the fourth of July, 1984 (may be off
a year) near Buffalo NY. It was part of Farm Aid.
The Dead played a full 2 sets plus encore.
The whole concert was over 8 hours.
I met Wavy Gravy working at a voter registration
table during an intermission.
The Hog Farm people were there selling the last
of the killer tie-dies.
After the concert, fireworks in the parking lot
were blowing up all around us.
I saw a guy leaving with his trunk open.
Standing up in the trunk was a half barrel keg of beer,
with the tapper attached. Sticking out
from the back of the car was a large US flag on a long pole
that was attached at the bottom to the side of
the open trunk lid. ( With the fireworks, I thought of
the Star Spangled Banner.) This guy was
headed out into regular traffic. I wonder how far he made it.
