A Beacon In The Dark

by thoughtsonthedead

The legendary Voodoonola (whom I believe is trying to give us some sort of hint as to his location, but I can’t be sure) delivers up a tantalizing snippet of 6/14/76 at the Beacon in New York. It’s not the whole show: in fact, it’s not the show at all. It is the soundcheck and there’s just a few minutes of it. This might be the smallest portion of a Dead show that can rightly be called a Dead show, but Garcia does blow one of the lyrics to NFA, so it counts.

Regarding Garcia: he has the most sexy in this video. He’s slim and playing the Travis Bean guitar which, in close-up and beautifully sharp color, you can see has a raised face to it and is sleek and bulbous at the same time, like a sea lion’s boner.

Aiding Garcia in his snatching the bronze ring of sexy are Bobby’s bangs. Bobby has bangs, for some reason.
