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":
STILL my favorite venue of all time, just from the show ten years later. I missed this one, having no clue at the time. The place is just exactly perfect.
It has always somewhat puzzled me (after the initial startle reflex) why Eugene seems to be unique as a venue in having lots and lots of topless women and naked folks. I mean, I've been to a whole lot of shows in California and elsewhere, in hot summer, and never seen the like of the Eugene scene in that regard.
OK...I don't get it. From this clip it looks like 1/4 of the time we get to see glimpses of the band and 3/4 of the time we get to see hippies dancing?? Really?? Is that the stinkin movie??"
the film makers were as high as the crowd, and they were there to document the scene, not just the songs. as i recall there are only eight songs in the movie. if you are expecting a "concert film" you will be disappointed

I have long since passed the point where I can afford high end fandangos like the whole Europe Tour, so to have this nugget's existence proven in such quality (almost too high quality - Sunburn Girl makes me cringe, and not always in a good way) is encouraging. The thing is, those of us who have first generation memories (swiss cheesed as they may be) are becoming a smaller, slower moving demographic every day. In other words, thanks for finishing the movie. Now release the consarn thing while I can still dance to it!!!!
Man... I can't wait! I'll be enjoying this w/ my Man... (((Big Smiles))) I can't even imagine what it must've felt like to actually have been there back in the day... wow! I love hearing stories from the early days from older heads... it's like sitting at the feet of an elderly person... soaking up the wisdom. Only you're sitting across from them, all of us talking to Mary... eyes wide, hanging on every word. I LOVE it!!
Last year's Meet Up at the Movies (Alpine 7-19-89) was not released as a DVD or Bluray. I'm hoping that changes for this show. It'd be quite a shame if not...
A soundtrack would be great.
LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS BEING RELEASED ON BLU-RAY
I won't be able to attend, due to August 1st being my 5th Anniversary. Will be tucked away along the coast of California, nowhere near civilization!! Please oh please release it!! If it's not a complete show on video, can we at least get the Dark Star uncut?? Oh yeah, and how about top 5 Bird Song?? One of my faves. Thank you to all involved, especially the Boys!!
Can't wait to see how the movie blows my bootleg dvd out of the water! My first show was the 3 set wonder in Boulder a week later, on 9/3/72. Lots of great memories.
