The Encyclopedia Of Jerry Garcia Music Venues

Seven years ago I began collecting data for Jerry's Brokendown Palaces, and although the blog's 428 venues are often updated here, the project has evolved into The Encyclopedia Of Jerry Garcia Music Venues.
Alphabetically by state, there are 1255 venues that include rehearsal, recording, performance, living spaces and canceled show venues.
It's mainly about the history of each venue including architects, builders, owners, opening night performances and other notable appearances, murals, paintings, statues, stage prosceniums, backstage areas, pipe organs, secret rooms, hidden tunnels, restorations and demolitions.

The Encyclopedia also covers Jerry's history at each venue and includes the bands he played with, opening acts and in some cases via dated photos and videos, what guitar he was playing, and other anecdotal information.
I've added eye witness reports to as many specific dates as possible. The stories are unedited and contain the wild adventures that we all know, love and remember so well. If you're reading this it's likely you have a story to be published in the Encyclopedia. Tell about your adventures at a specifically dated Garcia related performance and have them published in the Encyclopedia!
If you'd like to share your story you can email me at slipnut01@gmail.com.
I can help you figure out the correct date of your story. Tell all your friends about this project. I've already gathered about a thousand stories!

Thus far there are over 915 venue photos approved by over 820 photographers including university and public libraries, historical societies and museums. Only 65 more to go as there's no photos of the interview venues or canceled venues in the book.
There aren't any Jerry photos (well, maybe two that no one has ever seen from 1963 and 1967) just photos of the venues themselves, and in some cases, Deadheads.

Also, I've added a section that chronicles Jerry's 105 musical instruments with a history and photo of each.

I'm planning to self publish a printed hard copy and e-book. Maybe 5000 1st Edition Deluxe copies, autographed of course!
I envision a large book, carved leather bound hard cover, this is a book that resembles the records kept for medieval pilgrimages to holy sites. People will want to know centuries from now where it all took place...so there ya go.

If your interested in obtaining this publication you can send your email and I'll keep you informed on a publishing date, close to September 2017.

I'm in search of any photos of the venues/musical instruments below, they'd have to be rescanned at 300dpi or larger or 1 mb in size or larger. Please email me at slipnut01@gmail.com if you know where I can find any.

The 400 Club, 400 1st Street, San Francisco, CA

John J. Lerman owned a three story plus basement building here in 1909. This was an 18 family dwelling costing $20,604.78. There were nine stairways located in the front and rear of the building. The lot had 115’ of frontage on First Street. It was on the corner of First and Harrison.[9]

On May 13, 1952, the building was five stories with a thirty family occupancy. Three sets of rear stairs were to be replaced. It was owned by Herman L. Vogel.[10]

An application for building permit additions, alterations or repairs, dated 12/12/53 was submitted by Mrs. R. Garcia. Ground floor was 2200 square feet. Present use was Apartments (six families) and store.[8]

“Then Union Oil decided they wanted to put their office building where the bar was,”, Tiff says, “so the business moved across the street again, to another corner. There was a seaman’s hotel there, too, and on the ground floor there was the 400 Club. The original 400 Club had been a bawdy seaman’s bar, but my Mom turned that into a typical ’50’s nightclubish-type place with the emphasis on the little restaurant. It had red naugahyde stools and a solid mahogany circle bar. It was classy, a nice place considering the other one she had.
When I was in the service, my Mom turned the top floor into this real flashy apartment-three bedrooms with a total view of the downtown and the Bay Bridge.”[7]

After the Garcia's moved across the street to 400 1st Street in 1954[5], and thus renamed the bar "The 400 Club," and then moved into the top floor apartment, Jerry got to work on spending his day's hanging out downstairs with the sailors while his mom poured beer and kept the bar rollin'. You can just imagine a young 12-year old Jerry sitting down at the bar listening to tales from sailors about being Shanghai'd and whisked away, off to sea and to distant and exotic lands...as well as hearing sea chanties being sung day and night by drunk seamen....Yes, Off to Sea Once More!! [1]

In 1953 there was also a 400 Club at 2562 3rd, San Francisco.[6] There was also a 400 Club on 17th Street, San Francisco, where Sally Rand performed.

Jerry spent a lot of time here in
8/1/57 Solo
Jerry plays a Sears Silvertone, Harmony model guitar.[4]
"I grew up in a bar," Jerry said. "And that was back in the days when the Orient was still the Orient, and it hadn't been completely Americanized yet. They'd bring back all these weird things. Like one guy had the largest private collection of photographs of square-riggers. He was an old sea captain, and he had a mint condition '47 Packard that he parked out front. And he had a huge wardrobe of these beautifully tailored double-breasted suits from the '30s. And he'd tell these incredible stories. That was one of the reasons I couldn't stay in school [later]. School was a little too boring. These guys gave me a glimpse into a larger universe that seemed attractive and fun and, you know, crazy."

Jerry talks about the accordion."Oh, it was a beauty!" he said. In the heat of conversation, his voice rises, and he grins with the relish of a man who's sinking his teeth into a steak that he shouldn't be eating. "It was a Neapolitan job. My mother bought it from a sailor at the bar."[3]

McArthur Court, University Of Oregon, 1801 University Street, Eugene, OR

Capacity 9000
McArthur Court was a basketball arena located on the campus of the University of Oregon in Eugene and the former home of the Oregon Ducks men's and women's basketball teams.(1)(2)
McArthur Court saw its first game on January 14, 1927, a 38–10 Oregon victory over Willamette University.
Also known as "The Pit" or "Mac Court," it was known as one of the most hostile arenas in the nation. 
The arena is named for Clifton N. (Pat) McArthur, U. S. Congressman and Oregon student-athlete and the school's first student body president.[3]
Photo courtesy of Ron Daggett
It's unique and antiquated structure has the fans on top of the court. The maple floor bounces under the weight of the student section that surrounds the court.[4] In 2001 Sporting News named it "best gym in America".[5]
The arena was funded by a $15 fee imposed by the Associated Students of the University of Oregon and the mortgage papers were burned as part of a public ceremony after the building was completely paid for.[7]
It was replaced in 2011 by Matthew Knight Arena.[1][2]

5/31/69 Unknown photographer
This performance was originally scheduled for Hayward Field according to advertising in the Daily Emerald, May 28, 1969.
Jerry imitates a pedal steel guitar on Green Grass.[10]
"Billy is singing on Lovelight along with Ken Babbs."[8] Ken Babbs speaks in Green Grass, Baby Blue and other spots.
"Ken Babbs starts Baby Blue with a sad little rap; he's also heard rapping at length after Cold Rain & Snow."[16]

"Ken Babbs was indeed onstage "in some capacity," chattering away during the Dead's downtime; they sound quite at home with him. (Jerry even crows, "Free turf! Anyone can do anything they want to!" while Ken babbles.) One Archive reviewer mentions that "Kesey had recently returned to Oregon" and there were free ice cream cones! [I think Kesey had been in Oregon since the end of '67, but perhaps there was another occasion for the festivities.]
A distressed announcer at the end of the show tells the crowd, "Lots of people snuck in, and they only sold 1500 tickets, and they're 400 dollars short." So he asks the audience to give money at the door when they leave!"[9]

Promoter Bill Graham Presents and Double Tee in Association with EMU Cultural Forum.
Jerry wears a baseball style jersey with two white stripes on each shoulder and plays the guitar Wolf.[21]
"I worked my way to the third row, third seat from center. Security came over to me and told me straight up that it wasn't my seat cuz it belonged to his girlfriend. AND SHE COULDN'T MAKE IT so he told me to enjoy the show!! 
His girlfriend, even tho she wasn't there, wanted to hear Jack Straw, so I yelled out to Bobby and he turned around to the band and they went into Jack Straw. Very Cool. 
As they took a breather after Samson and Micky pointed at me and say to those around him "This guy is going to go nuts" I Did!!
In case it hasn't been noticed, when Jerry is doodling (Close Encounters jam) no one is playing with him. In all my shows, it was the only time where I saw the rest of the band find a seat and let their jaws drop to the floor with the rest of us. It also helped that Ken Kesey was in the audience and there was a Jester roaming the front few rows dosing people."[11]

"Bobby and Jerry were jumping up and down during the Jerry-fan section at the end of Jack Straw - I never saw the big guy that animated again after that."[12]

"I was standing in the lobby during intermission in a circle passing around a joint; I keep trying to pass it to the guy on my left, not looking at him, just trying to get him to take this joint. Finally I look over and realize he's not taking it because he's a City of Eugene police officer. Then, later, during Jerry's solo, this big cowboy sitting behind us gets up and announces disgustedly, to no one in particular, "Who does this guy [Garcia] think he is, Jimi Hendrix or somehing?" and walks out. Well, this is (and was) rural Oregon and I guess the guy just wandered into the wrong concert."[13]

"What happens in TMNS is nothing short of divine rapture. Jerry's wiggling leads pick the locks of Heaven and throw the gates wide. Then the Dead roll right in- in proud style- jamming all the way and rocking the celestial halls of Ever After, leaving no pillar unshaken. No other band can ride such a pure wave on the muse's tide for as long or as unadulterated as the Dead. Jerry's fingers dance around with their own freedom and cascades of notes will bathe your soul in sense and color as the music plays the band. I found myself laughing and shaking my head in disbelief. Absolute mind blowing a cosmic dandelion into a sparkling sentiment of LOVE."[14]

"The other thing that sticks in my mind was that the stage set was a scaled down version of the Autzen Stadium set from the summer before. There was the huge rainbow stretching across the top of the stage with the sun in the middle. The difference was that at Autzen, there were hangings in front of the speaker columns at each end of the rainbow that completed the diorama."[15]

"Bill Graham, producer of the tour, showed up at Eugene January 22 with 50 red t-shirts emblazoned with Healy's picture behind bars, and "Free The Bakersfield 2" on the back.(19) Healy was busted in Bakersfield on January 14 for resisting arrest and public drunkenness. Graham persuaded the band and everyone else on stage to put them on at the end of the show.[19]

Promoter Double Tee/John Scher Presents.
"During Drums they rolled Ken Kesey out in a psychedelic circus cage known as the Thunder Machine, while Ken Babbs rapped at the mic."[6]

"Kesey or Babbs were on stage. They were, for sure, at the '81 Mac Court show...Thunder Machine was wheeled out right on stage and they beat the heck out of it. Babbs also had a mic and was doing some insane-o rap."[18]

"Over 100 degrees outside that day. . .very foggy in the gym. I remember people hanging out in the old cemetery across from Mac Court and thinking, "How fitting."[17]

"I had my one and only backstage pass for this show! At the break I followed everyone down to the locker room. I remember Kesey and Babbs were there and I spotted Jerry standing off to one side talking to two little girls, so I strolled over and lit a joint and smoked it with him !!! Later my friends and I partied with the rest of the band at the Valley River Inn ! What a mighty time!"[18]

The Encyclopedia Of Jerry Garcia Music Venues

Seven years ago I began collecting data for Jerry's Brokendown Palaces, and although the blog's 428 venues are often updated here, the project has evolved into The Encyclopedia Of Jerry Garcia Music Venues.
Alphabetically by state, there are 1255 venues that include rehearsal, recording, performance, living spaces and canceled show venues.
It's mainly about the history of each venue including architects, builders, owners, opening night performances and other notable appearances, murals, paintings, statues, stage prosceniums, backstage areas, pipe organs, secret rooms, hidden tunnels, restorations and demolitions.

The Encyclopedia also covers Jerry's history at each venue and includes the bands he played with, opening acts and in some cases via dated photos and videos, what guitar he was playing, and other anecdotal information.
I've added eye witness reports to as many specific dates as possible. The stories are unedited and contain the wild adventures that we all know, love and remember so well. If you're reading this it's likely you have a story to be published in the Encyclopedia. Tell about your adventures at a specifically dated Garcia related performance and have them published in the Encyclopedia!
If you'd like to share your story you can email me at slipnut01@gmail.com.
I can help you figure out the correct date of your story. Tell all your friends about this project. I've already gathered about a thousand stories!

Thus far there are over 915 venue photos approved by over 820 photographers including university and public libraries, historical societies and museums. Only 65 more to go as there's no photos of the interview venues or canceled venues in the book.
There aren't any Jerry photos (well, maybe two that no one has ever seen from 1963 and 1967) just photos of the venues themselves, and in some cases, Deadheads.

Also, I've added a section that chronicles Jerry's 105 musical instruments with a history and photo of each.

I'm planning to self publish a printed hard copy and e-book. Maybe 5000 1st Edition Deluxe copies, autographed of course!
I envision a large book, carved leather bound hard cover, this is a book that resembles the records kept for medieval pilgrimages to holy sites. People will want to know centuries from now where it all took place...so there ya go.

If your interested in obtaining this publication you can send your email and I'll keep you informed on a publishing date, close to September 2017.

I'm in search of any photos of the venues/musical instruments below, they'd have to be rescanned at 300dpi or larger or 1 mb in size or larger. Please email me at slipnut01@gmail.com if you know where I can find any.

Imperial Skating Rink, 419 S.E. Madison Street, Portland, Oregon



Opened in 1937. Owned in 1954 by William "Pop" Brown.[4]
The Imperial Roller Rink originally had a 2/5 William Wood theatre organ. The Wood company later added three Gottfried ranks (Clarinet, English Horn, Kinura) and Sleigh Bells making it a 2/8.
Between 1935 and 1941, Balcom & Vaughan added to the organ and installed a three-manual console which was rebuilt from a Wurlitzer two-manual.
In 1955, a 3/10 Wurlitzer from Portland's Hollywood Theatre was moved to the Imperial Rink and combined with the existing Wood instrument. As was typical for skating rink installations, all pipes, windchests, percussions and traps were located in the rafters above the skating floor.
The late Jerry Jorgensen was organist at the rink for many years.
The organ was eventually removed to storage. It was owned for a time by the McDonalds restaurant chain. In the late 1970's the instrument was purchased by Dr. & Mrs. John Dapolito of San Diego, California.[1]

"The elevated approaches to the Hawthorne Bridge created a dark neighborhood of old storefronts and commercial buildings below. In the early 60's there was a coffeehouse down there called the Way Out that featured folk music and espresso drinks. The owner was Jim Smith, who was the first chair trumpet in the Portland Symphony. Sonny Terry & Brownie McGee appeared there, among others."[7]

"It was a beautiful rink inside, huge mirror-ball & GREAT pipe organ. They had a Grand March nightly and if you were in grade school then, it was the "IN" spot every Friday night. The rink was never a dump, the neighborhood was a little "walk-on-the-wild-side"."[2]

"I remember skating at that roller rink as late as the mid-80’s. The bumper walls were lined with orange carpet."[6]

In 1985, Portland Indoor Soccer Center, a soccer league, used the building. They still do in 2014.

Jerry may have performed here on
1/1/66 Grateful Dead(3)
Chris Emery's sister attended this event and had a poster for many years. She's passed away and the poster is gone too. Emery's father was the manager of the rink prior to this event.[1]

The Encyclopedia Of Jerry Garcia Music Venues

Seven years ago I began collecting data for Jerry's Brokendown Palaces, and although the blog's 428 venues are often updated here, the project has evolved into The Encyclopedia Of Jerry Garcia Music Venues.
Alphabetically by state, there are 1250 venues that include rehearsal, recording, performance, living spaces and canceled show venues.
It's mainly about the history of each venue including architects, builders, owners, opening night performances and other notable appearances, murals, paintings, statues, stage prosceniums, backstage areas, pipe organs, secret rooms, hidden tunnels, restorations and demolitions.

The Encyclopedia also covers Jerry's history at each venue and includes the bands he played with, opening acts and in some cases via dated photos and videos, what guitar he was playing, and other anecdotal information.
I've added eye witness reports to as many specific dates as possible. The stories are unedited and contain the wild adventures that we all know, love and remember so well. If you're reading this it's likely you have a story to be published in the Encyclopedia. Tell about your adventures at a specifically dated Garcia related performance and have them published in the Encyclopedia!
If you'd like to share your story you can email me at slipnut01@gmail.com.
I can help you figure out the correct date of your story. Tell all your friends about this project. I've already gathered about a thousand stories!

Thus far there are over 915 venue photos approved by over 820 photographers including university and public libraries, historical societies and museums. Only 75 more to go as there's no photos of the interview venues or canceled venues in the book.
There aren't any Jerry photos (well, maybe two that no one has ever seen from 1963 and 1967) just photos of the venues themselves, and in some cases, Deadheads.

Also, I've added a section that chronicles Jerry's 105 musical instruments with a history and photo of each.

I'm planning to self publish a printed hard copy and e-book. Maybe 5000 1st Edition Deluxe copies, autographed of course!
I envision a large book, carved leather bound hard cover, this is a book that resembles the records kept for medieval pilgrimages to holy sites. People will want to know centuries from now where it all took place...so there ya go.

If your interested in obtaining this publication you can send your email and I'll keep you informed on a publishing date, close to September 2017.

Coleman Memorial Coliseum (University of Alabama), 323 Paul W. Bryant Drive, Tuscaloosa, Alabama 


Capacity 15316
The architects were Miller Martin and Lewis and Edwin T. McCowan.[9]
The Coliseum opened its doors for the first time on January 30, 1968, for the traveling Broadway production The Roar of the Greasepaint - The Smell of the Crowd.[3] Two days later, the Tide's men's basketball team hosted its first game at the arena, against the Samford Bulldogs.
Formally named Memorial Coliseum as a substitute for Foster Auditorium.  In 1988 the facility was re-named to honor Jefferson Jackson Coleman, a prominent University of Alabama alumnus. Jefferson Coleman was the first pledge of Theta Sigma Fraternity which would later become the basis for beginning the current National Delta Chi Fraternity Chapter at The University on February 12, 1927. Jefferson continued to serve the University in many capacities, from Business Manager of the football program to Director of Alumni Affairs, for nearly fifty years. Until his death in 1995, Coleman was the only person to be present at every Alabama bowl game, beginning with the Rose Bowl on January 1, 1926. (2)
The building, comparable to a seven-story structure at its pinnacle, received a bit of a facelift in 2005 adding offices for the coaches and administrators, a new ticket office as well as a Tide Pride office. The large mid-court scoreboard was taken down and replaced by a pair of endline scoreboards equipped with video replay screens. In addition, The Coliseum's parquet floor was repainted to reflect the Crimson Tide's new elephant logo at center court.(1)
Stars who have performed on its stage include Ray Charles, Bob Dylan and Elvis Presley, who performed here on August 30, 1976.(1)
President Ronald Reagan was a guest of the Coleman Coliseum during his 1984 presidential re-election campaign.[6]
Because the City of Tuscaloosa does not have a municipal civic center, the demand for events grew briskly and the Coliseum doubled its capacity in the 1970's on account of this.

Jerry performed here on
4/18/77 Grateful Dead
This show was canceled and rescheduled for 5/17/77.

5/17/77 Unknown photographer
Promoter John Scher and Tony Ruffino[7]
Rescheduled from 4/18/77.
Jerry plays a Travis Bean 500 #12 guitar.[5]
"The SGA Events Dept. had money left over and the band was scheduled at the last minute."[3]

"The 'Bama venue was rigged theatre-style..meaning the arena was partitioned so the stage was set mid-court with a curtain behind. There was no barricade down front..a bloke could stand belly-up to the stage."[4]

“I was there in Tuscaloosa that evening and, thankfully, a bit cosmic. I've been to hundreds of concerts and have lived a very full life, but I've not experienced anything like 5/17/77 before or since. I've never been a "church person" though I've often wished those Sunday gatherings could offer me some spiritual food. However, I remember walking out of the venue that evening and telling my girlfriend "That's what church should be like", and to this day I wish it was. It was a true communion...the crowd and the band were solidly linked in ways that transcended eyes and ears. It was amazing! So glad I happened to be there…”[8]
