It is not yet clear if Jerry played with NRPS on this date but this was also a Grateful Dead show. A dying movie house, one of the first wide screen theaters built in the 1920's. "The NRPS opened the show, and I saw my first real Hell Angels."-Rasta Mike.... Duane Allman died on this date...In an effort to bring the Allen's plight for preservation to the forefront of Clevelanders, the Playhouse Square Association (which was formed in 1970) reopened the Allen Theatre in November 1971, opening with a performance by the Budapest Symphony Orchestra. Does this mean that the Grateful Dead and New Riders had a pre-opening performance/wake just before, on 10/29/71?
