Grateful Dead Meet Up At The Movies 2013: "Sunshine Daydream"

On a blistering summer day in 1972, the Grateful Dead took the stage on the grounds of the Oregon Country Fair in Veneta, Ore. for what would become one of the most legendary concerts of the band’s storied history. Join us this summer when we screen the previously unreleased concert film “Sunshine Daydream” as part of our now annual Grateful Dead Meet Up At The Movies.

Originally shot on 16mm film and painstakingly restored to HD resolution, "Sunshine Daydream" captures the band at the height of their powers (fresh off the Europe ’72 tour) and at the epicenter of the counterculture movement. Special features include never-before-seen footage of the concert day as well as recently recorded interviews with key participants from the time such as Ken Babbs, Sam Cutler, Wavy Gravy and Carolyn "Mountain Girl" Garcia, who provide insight on how the community came together for this special event to help raise money to keep the local town’s Springfield Creamery afloat. This extraordinary screening also shines a spotlight on some mighty fine tunes, with a playlist containing all new Stereo and 5.1 Audio mixes done by Jeffrey Norman at TRI Studios in San Rafael, Calif. and mastered by Grammy® winning engineer David Glasser at Air Show Mastering in Boulder, Colorado, with tape transfer and restoration by Plangent Processes.

"Sunshine Daydream" will only be playing on the silver screen for one night! Come along and connect with Dead Heads in your neighborhood on Thursday, August 1 at 7:30 p.m. local time.

Tickets are now available at www.FathomEvents.com.

Look and listen: "China Cat Sunflower" from "Sunshine Daydream":

wowwwch

Bet that sunburn really freaking hurt after the acid wore off. Nice restoration job, and sound. It looks like it could have been filmed yesterday. Yes, a lot of audience footage predominates, but the material is just as valuable from the point of view of historical reference. Recall that the Dead perceived the audience as an integral part of the band. I hope to be able to attend a showing. It looks like it will be fun.

at last!

This looks like a super improvement over the low quality dvd I've had for some years. Also, there seems to be more footage- there are a few extra naked people there for sure. This should be amazing on the big screen. I wonder if they kept the animation during Dark Star? Actually, I enjoy seeing the crowd as much as the band- especially in that spectacular setting. As someone else pointed out, it is also a little sad. Sad that those times are gone, and especially sad that I missed out on them. My first show wasn't until 1983, and even then I never had the courage to "freak freely" at a show like all those beautiful people.
