Keystone, Berkeley, California, August 1981
"I hadn't been back to San Francisco since 1977," says Minkin, "and a friend of mine used to send me clippings that Garcia was playing at the Keystone. I said, 'I have to see this!' For this show we got there early and spent the whole afternoon hanging out in front of the club. People were selling stuff and making music. I'd never seen anyone playing a cello before. It was a friendly, welcoming community. Strangers looked out for one another. It was a typical Dead scene."
