    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…

    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.

I just saw the whole first leg of the tour is sold out. Congrats! Now, when are they going to announce the rest of the west coast shows? A Monday night in Portland in March I can live without but a show down south somewhere so I could head out to the desert afterwards and soak up some sun would be sweet! Sunshine Daydream...

I finally got an iPhone for Christmas and, by far, my must have app is The Dead Tour 2009, which lets us have a total record—photos, vids, streaming audio, rehearsals, news feeds, set lists and downloads of two hours of the live music—of the tour. There’s more than 500 photos. It is completely sick and something you definitely have to get. The tour was the first in five years for Bob, Phil, Bill, and Mickey, along with keyboardist Jeff Chimenti and Allman Brothers Band/Gov’t Mule guitarist Warren Haynes. Jay Blakesberg took the photos and Justin Kreutzmann filmed it. You can get it on the iStore for three bucks. It’s definitely worth it. It’s by far my favorite app. The company that made it is called Mosaic Legends and they also have very cool apps for David Bowie and P. Diddy. I don’t have those, but I’ll probably download the Bowie one. If it’s anything like the Dead app, I’ll be stoked and do a post on it. I found an article where Phil Lesh talked about it: "With this new Dead tour App Mosaic Legends is bringing us the future earlier than expected."

HiVery confused. Been in the family for over twenty years. Have gone to four national gathering, been part of the Chicago, Santa Cruz and New Orleans families. Spoken up for legalization all my life and put myself out there numerous times, been to countless dead shows, was on the Grateful Dead last tour, saw the dead in Florida on my 18 birthday and saw Jerry's last show to just start with how much I have been a part of my family and Love my grateful Dead and Rainbow brothers and Sisters. Now I try to log on to this site and can't, then I ask tech support who tell me there is no log in option. When I ask again how to log in they ignore me. Now I do log on in a different name and here I am. I really hope this is some sort of gross misunderstanding but see not how. It seems we have some family Nazis who have decided to excommunicate me from family. Please tell me I am wrong and explain the misunderstanding since I know if anyone is doing this that it does not represent our family at all. Please join us in our mission or love, understanding and tolerance of various spiritual expressions. Many of you know me out there and know I care deeply about people and their rights.

it downright stinks, as a matter of fact, but i sense that the poster feels that someone has intentionally excluded them from this site, which i am sure IS a gross misunderstanding...maybe, Leif, you should try to contact one of the mods here for info on why you had trouble logging in, and i'm sure they will help you, given the specifics.

since you seem to be here now just fine, the problem is functionally solved. For what it's worth, we are currently experiencing a spammer invasion that's causing me to have to delete hundreds of bogus accounts a day, and if yours got caught up in this purge I'm sorry. Welcome to the neighborhood, and yeah, what they said about throwing "Nazi" around.

I went to the Va Tech game yesterday with my older son, Paul. I had been looking forward to this as it was the first chance we had had to spend some one on one time together for quite a while. One of the disadvantages of having 2 younger kids at home who have special needs is that I have very little chance to spend quality time with my 2 older kids. The game was a disaster but I didn't really care. While we were tailgating before the game Paul informed me that he and his wife are expecting their first child in May! What wonderful news!

ATTENTION ALL FAMILY: A great kid needs your help! I'm Mindy, my fiance Chris from Conneticut, one of the kindest realiest kids was popped on some old warrants on the way into Moe DOWN, Chris has had some very bad luck in his life. He has spent the past 2 years in the hospital, he has had 2 open heart surgerys, a heart attack and a stroke at 27, all caused by an abbcessed tooth. I thought because of his medical conditions they wouldn't keep him in jail, but they came down from a 9 month sentence or 5k fine to 90 days or 1k fine, but he isn't getting the medical attention he needs, I have to get him out. Fortunately for me some great family, Woodstock Ron from Utica took me in. but we haven't been able to come up with the bail money. I need to get him out as soon as possible and was hoping that if any of you kind dead folks here could help out with donations it would be gratefully appreciated. Any amount will help and would be payed forward. You can send donations to Mindy Riffle at 1610 Sunset ave. Utica Ny. 13502. I hope that we can get Chris out, get him to his many doctors,get him some rest and then see you all on November tour. Forever Grateful, Mindy

Hey NowThis may be considered off topic... but Any Deadhead worth his or her salt KNOWS it isn't... so I pray the folks maintaining this page will give this a moment. I am sure you've all heard a little something about the occupation of wall street. I've been following it with my kids and I have to say LATELY two things occur to me (pun intended) ... A) These folks are REALLY coming out and making a stand ON BEHALF OF ALL OF US... and B) THEY COULD USE OUR HELP. Think about it folks... Grapevine mechanics and remote event planning and logistics are things we do like no one else. There's maybe half a dozen Deadheads around the movement that I can identify. Just think about the impact you can have... you can do what you used to do when we'd fill up a tour by word of mouth all over again. And for the best of causes, making the world and in particular your society a better place (even just a little bit). "This isn't about money. So when ya get a moment... take a stroll to the facebook page facebook.com/Occupywallstreet page and give it a like. And then go get some LIVE... at https://occupywallst.org/ ... The Rest? Well it's what we make of it... and they're waiting for your ideas and support! Please at least have a look and ask yourself if you want to keep passing these opportunities for a better country by. Peace, Your Fellow Head, CharlieSheenBoosters

my travel schedule for work is a busy one and I get to visit some wonderful places. It seems as though everywhere I go I try to find a bar that an old Deadhead would enjoy. And now I find myself headed to NYC this week (knowing that the Wetland Preserve is long gone). So I would love to hear from anyone who could recommend the best bars/clubs for an old Deadhead wandering around NYC..... Peace and Kindness TH

Dead-related, but one of my favorite bars in NYC is McSorely's Old Ale House on 6th street just east of Cooper Square. Been there since 1854, and it's something to experience at least once in your life. Lots of really cool, all original crap hanging on the walls, sawdust on the floor, and they have both kinds of ale, light and dark! Order in increments of two. I have heard allegations that the Dead hung there a couple of times way back in the wayback. Not entirely implausible, as it is just down the street from where the Fillmore East used to be.

Not that's it's particularly interesting, but I feel like I've worked so hard and achieved so little this year. I'm really bummed, it's hard to deal with the so many people against you. The best part though, and I believe the hope is: that I love my family here on Dead.Net. I got to visit some family members from old at Dead.net, and it really did my heart well. Although it was quite a long strange trip, and we didn't even make a show, the best part about it: I finally released some pent up emotions over my last trip. Thank you Dead.Net family, for instance you Pid, ch1na, scottishlass, mcgeeky, moye, the list is endless and of course MANY others I wish I could remember to name.and I can't thank all of you enough for how much support you've given me over the years. During our short little trip from Ohio to Chicago to Michigan back to Ohio and Home, I wrote and created a ton of material. It was alot of emotions and things pent up inside. It was the best release I could think of as I was physically and emotionally tired from the real Grind. I've had to deal with alot of past issues, both emotionally and mentally to even make it back alive this trip. Luckily, I had so many friends and family (((HUGZ)))) help me along the way. Thank you all for showing me that even in my darkests of hours in a long time, you still know how to bring me out into the Light and show me that LOVE is Real! Thanks Critter

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.
