  • NB probably started later than the planned 10 pm. Article on arrests makes it sound like first show ended maybe 10 p.m. I bet late show started 11 or later. Ad only identified one show at 8 PM. Donna Jean absent.

  • JGMF: Find Someone Who Looks at You the Way John Looks at Jerry
  • Attendee Doug Wherley remembers that the Persuasions got booed offstage. "The image of the Persuasions being booed off the stage haunts me to this day. It was the only time I was embarrassed to be a fan of Jerry or the Dead."
  • ad: Asbury Park Press, June 26, 1977, p. 14
  • Wage: $20,557. Only 120 tickets shy of a sellout. Why did Garcia get such a low wage? He would usually capture much more of the revenue from such a big gig. Scher listed over $30k in expenses for these gigs.
  • Donna Jean Godchaux does not perform. Secondhand report supplies "Not Fade Away" soundcheck. We presume it was here before the early show, though it was performed for the late show.
  • expost: "Arrests Follow 2 Rock Concerts," Asbury Park Press, July 11, 1977, p. unk: "More than 30 persons, most of them from North Jersey and New York, were arrested Saturday night and early yesterday morning" after the Garcia Band shows. 22 police. Crowd of 250-300 (per police) gather at Bradley Park, across Ocean Avenue from Convention Hall, about 6:30 pm. Drinking. Cops announce they're gonna bust the drinking, etc. over the bullhorn. Crowd mostly dispersed 7:30, when JGB scheduled to start. Arrests begin at 10:30 pm, after the early show. "Police arrested people as they came off the Boardwalk and were visibly intoxicated. The arrests continued until about 1:25 am [text not clear]". Most was possession of alcohol, maybe 28? That'd be a summons or $100 bail. Nine for possession of marijuana or LSD, $500 bail. One Prince Charming got three charges and $5,000 bail for possession of a large knife, assault and battery of a police officer, and resisting arrest.
  • The figures you see come from Billboard, though for some reason we don't have the precise publication information. Aggregate figures appear in Variety, July 13, 1977, p. 54, reporting SRO, so we code both shows as sellouts.
  • Historical
  • Donna Summer's hit record "I Feel Love" is released in the UK; it is the first hit record to have an entirely synthesised backing track.
