Set 2 previously listed as incomplete, but this is the entire thing. Erik VanO relates the scene: "The show ended with Ripple and the crowd was pissed off at the short show and no encore. When the house lights went on the crowd booed and that morphed into a "bullshit-bullshit" chant. No one would leave. So Jerry had to come back out and play more tunes. I'm not sure whether you'd even call it a second set, I never thought of it as that, more of an encore/riot control, but regardless, those were the only songs played in that unusual circumstance." Attendee Ben Karmelich relates a similar story: "This was Jerry Garcia at his worst. ... Originally, it was going to be one show and there's usually two sets per concert. On that day, he added a second show for that same night and expected the crowd to all go outside after the first set and buy another ticket to come back and see the second set. Needless to say, the crowd was very upset. One person brought a big banner that said "Jerry Sells Out L.A. Deadheads". After Jerry played an uninspired 6 song set, he said good night and left but the crowd refused to leave. Eventually, Rock Scully came out to say that Jerry "meant to say" that he is taking a short break and eventually, a very pissed off Jerry came out for three more songs."
