The crumbling old Philadelphia Spectrum is a vibey joint; it’s a happy accident that they haven’t torn the arena down, there are three shiny new enormodomes for hockey, baseball, and football right next to it.
There’s a banner up in the rafters noting that the Dead sold the place out 53 times. That is hip.
Note Pete McNeal’s triumphant rock drummer position above.
