Lineup: Jerry Garcia Band: Jerry Garcia, DeeDee Dickerson, John Kahn, David Kemper, Jaclyn LaBranch, Melvin Seals...Frank Zappa closed. Here's his setlist: 08/18/84 (Sat) UIC Pavilion - Chicago, IL- Set 1: Zoot Allures, More Trouble Every Day, Penguin In Bondage, Hot Plate Heaven At The Green Hotel, City Of Tiny Lights, You Are What You Is, Mudd Club, The Meek Shall Inherit Nothing, Dumb All Over, He's So Gay, Bobby Brown, Keep It Greasey, Honey Don't You Want A Man Like Me?, Carol You Fool, Chana In De Bushwop, Let's Move To Cleveland, Cosmik Debris, Sharleena, Ride My Face To Chicago, The Illinois Enema Bandit... Lineup: Frank Zappa, Ike Willis, Ray White, Scott Thunes, Chad Wackerman, Alan Zavod, Bobby Martin.... "A few of my friends went to that show and told me how Jerry was so wasted (1984 was maybe Jerry's most smacked out year) and sloppy that Zappa obliquely mocked him in his own set by cooking up a "Deal" jam (JGB's encore) that absolutely shredded. (tigerstrat)...and another account: "I went to this show, this whole Garcia tour was blistering with Jerry absolutely firing on all cylinders. The show right before this one on Long Island sticks out as one the hottest Garcia shows I've ever seen. I stuck around for the beginning of Zappa's set in hopes that they might play together but word traveled fast that Jerry had already split." (jonarobb)...and another:Frank was definitely an equal opportunity critic. He could be very harsh and he left out very few from his critiques--most were in fact, pretty scathing. He did not look fondly on the whole hippie/drug thing, that's for sure. As for that show with JGB. My buddy was there and he had also obtained a jean jacket with Frank and Jerry's profiles back to back on the back of the jacket. I always wanted that jacket."(mttourpro)...and another:"I was at that show and dug both bands as a long time fan of both. I too wondered if they would jam but it was obvious they were two very different types of musicians. Afterwards the comparison I made was that JGB made you feel invited and a part of it (in my head anyway), while Zappa's band made you feel like an outsider watching someone who was not connected to you at all. I saw Zappa a couple times during that same summer and his set list didn't change up much. I did hear the most amazing keyboard solo from the Zappa band.(Django)
