    On stage: The Grateful Dead
    At the door: Two brand-new galvanized garbage cans of ice-
    cold Kool-Aid. One can is also full of LSD-25. About one
    hundred micrograms a swallow....
    "Who cares?" I hear some sister scream.

the place in mid-meltdown till I find this little alcove, slide inside, and there she is

 loving, caring strangers that surround her -- and she turns into jewels and light.
                         And we turn into jewels and light.
  "And that's when I passed the acid test. You understand, when you get to the
 very bottom of the human soul--to the place where the nit slams up against the
grit and you're sinking pretty bad--somehow you manage to reach down and help
  someone who is sinking worse than you are. Well, that's when everybody gets
 high and you don't need any LSD and you don't need any jewels or light.Jesus
                and the Buddha were right! "All you need is...love.

After the 1988 Hampton shows, Deadheads had become personae non
    gratae in the city of Hampton, so the Dead billed themselves as
 Formerly the Warlocks. The two shows became legendary in Virginia.
  Every song seemed right on, building into the second night with the
   band bringing out "Dark Star" after a five-year hiatus and a moving
"Death Don't Have No Mercy" into "Dear Mr. Fantasy." For the encore,
the Dead gave us "Attics of My Life," the first performance of that song

following Coleridge poems?
     "Kubla Khan"
     "Dejection: An Ode"
     "Christabel"
     "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner"
         "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner".
    In Coleridge's "Rime of the Ancient Mariner," an old man collars a
 wedding guest to tell him his awe-inspiring story, much as August West
  stops the original narrator of "Wharf Rat" to relate his tale. In "Rime of
the Ancient Mariner," the narration switches to the old mariner and then,
 at the end of the tale, returns to the wedding guest's perspective (albeit
omniscient narration), just as the narration switches in "Wharf Rat" back
     to the original narrator. In both narrations, at the end of the verse
  narrative, the person hearing the tale reflects on his own life in light of
                           the story he's just heard.
