May 12, 1967 Marigold Ballroom, Fresno, CA: Grateful Dead/Road Runners
Dead.net shows the Dead playing Fresno on Thursday May 11, but in fact the show was May 12 (two shows 9:45 and 11:15). David Hale reviewed the show fairly favorably (for a 1967 daily paper). He mentions the songs “Golden Road, “New, New Minglewood Blues” and “Viola Lee Blues,” but his language doesn’t make it certain that they actually played them.
