    Wolf on the block for SPLC
    (posted from PM) My name is Stephen Francis, I work at Guernsey's Auction House based in NYC, and on May 31st, we are hosting an auction of Jerry's guitar, "Wolf," at the Brooklyn Bowl with all proceeds going to support the Southern Poverty Law Center. Here is the breakdown of the event: On May 31, Guernsey's will be conducting an unprecedented one-lot auction of Wolf, Jerry Garcia's beloved guitar. The event is being held at NYC's wonderful Brooklyn Bowl and will include an evening of great music leading up to the auction. Proceeds from the sale of Wolf are directly benefiting the Southern Poverty Law Center, a fantastic non-profit organization dedicated to fighting racism, poverty and hate groups. Fifteen years ago, we sold Wolf at a wild and crazy auction. Recently, the gentleman who acquired the iconic guitar back then approached us wishing to do something meaningful. When he suggested selling Wolf to support SPLC, we couldn't have agreed more. To see Wolf in person while enjoying a great evening of music and supporting an important cause, join us at the Brooklyn Bowl. If you are interested in bidding on Wolf, please contact Guernsey’s at 212-794-2280. For non-bidders interested in attending, a limited number of tickets will be available starting May 8 through the Brooklyn Bowl’s website. Please visit guernseys.com for more information, and give us a call with any questions! Here is the link to our site with all the info: http://guernseys.com/v2/wolf.html Please let me know if you can include this info in your newsletter. Best, Stephen sfrancis@guernseys.com

    1971 RESEARCH PROJECT
    Good morning rockers!!!! As many of you may or may not know, I am a bit of a “1971 Dead fanatic”. I have taken on a slightly ambitious project, documenting all 1971 Dead shows, the end result of which I hope will combine numerous “facts/factoids” about shows with recollections of folks who actually attended Dead shows in 1971. In order to accomplish this, I need the help of the Dead fan community. ALL contributions will be properly and specifically credited. If you attended ANY shows in 1971 and have ANY recollections to share, PLEASE consider participating. Please PM me for details. While of course I’m happy to hear from anybody who attended “classic 71 shows” such as Port Chester, Fillmore East, Harding Theater, Felt Forum, etc., I’m particularly interested in hearing from folks who may have attended lesser known, “out of the way” shows, such as: 1/21/71 Davis 1/22/71 Lane Community College 3/5/71 Oakland 4/14/71 Bucknell 4/18/71 Cortland 6/21/71 Chateau d’Herouville 8/4/71 Terminal Island 10/19/71 Northrop Auditorium 11/11/71 Atlanta 11/17/71 Albuquerque In addition, if ANYBODY out there has “paper ephemera” related to 1971 shows, Please consider participating. I’m looking especially for: Newspaper/print media articles Show posters/handbills Ticket stubs Photographs Thanks in advance to all who participate and contribute! Rock on, Doc Gillespie

    The Fare Thee Well: Celebrating 50 years of Grateful Dead
    Attention Dead Heads! Don't miss The Fare Thee Well: Celebrating 50 Years of Grateful Dead at The Ridgefield Playhouse live in HD on July 3rd at 8:00pm. Few bands in the history of music have embodied community and transported free-spirited music to the masses, like Grateful Dead. Furthermore, no fan base bears resemblance to the determined and, above all, dedicated DeadHeads. Check out our website for more information http://ridgefieldplayhouse.org/event/fare-thee-well-celebrating-50-year…

    Jerry Garcia Tribute Band Coming to Ridgefield CT!
    Hey Jerry Garcia fans!If any of you live in the Fairfield County area of Connecticut (or are willing to make a longer trip), a tribute band called 'The Garcia Project' will be coming to the Ridgefield Playhouse on 06/27/15 at 8pm! The show will also feature special guest, 'Acoustically Speaking'. The Playhouse is located at 80 East Ridge Road in Ridgefield, CT, and tickets are $20. The show will definitely be worthwhile for any fans of Jerry Garcia, the Grateful Dead, or just good music in general, so try and come along - hope to see you there!

    Nice to hear from you, Critter
    I won't say something banal (like "when life gives you lemmons..."). I'm sure you already know life is a rollercoaster, going up or going down. Don't be attached to the present direction. Like the weather, wait a minute and it will change. As the B-52s use to say: Get out of that state you're in! (Private Idaho)

    Sometimes Tough Times are Good Times
    Thanks Marye. Fortunately, I never left, just remained silent for awhile. It wasn't that rough, just something I didn't want to put upon all of you. This place has always been my home (since it's inception), and you all made that possible. And as usual, what was found is just more family. The love and good vibes I've felt through any tough time, is always appreciated and welcomed. Thanks Dead.Net fambly, You all ROCK.
