If you're unfamiliar with this show's Dark Star it settles into an extremely laid back spacy version (Gary Duncan sits in on guitar). It's hands-down my favorite latter-day Dark Star. (10.31.71, twenty years prior was when my all time favorite was played! Dick's Picks 2)
So Bill Graham the concert promoter who was an integral part of the Dead's history had been killed in a helicopter crash on 10/25/91.
So this is Halloween night.
Ken Kesey comes onstage post-verse and begins "I was in D.C., and when I got the message I thought of two things..."
The message is that Bill Graham had been killed in the helicopter accident.

It is so powerful! I won't give anything away. This is going to be such a treat. Prepare yourself for a Grateful Dead "singularity". Enter the event horizon...

I hope to discuss it with any/everyone.

Here's a link to the performance: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fmCp2g20V-E
