"A DOSE OF THE DEAD: 1 LEGENDARY NIGHT AT THE CAPITOL THEATRE IN PORT CHESTER, NEW YORK"

If you missed the Grateful Dead in their heyday at the Capitol Theatre, where they performed 18 times in 1970-71 alone, The Cap is giving you another chance to experience an all-out Dead dance party. On Saturday August 24th, the rock palace will present a complete, unreleased audio recording of the live concert at the theatre in 1971, played in its entirety through the Cap's state-of-the-art D&B sound system at full-concert-volume and accompanied by visual effects from the theatre's concert lighting rig.

This show, from 2/18/71, is the first night of a legendary six night run, the last run the Grateful Dead ever played at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester. This epic concert contains the first-ever performances of "Bertha", "Loser", "Greatest Story Ever Told", "Johnny B. Goode", and "Wharf Rat". The show was mixed from the original 16-track analog master tapes recorded at the Cap for the Skull & Roses album, although none of this show was included on the album.
