If you are looking for some local unsigned talent while you are waiting for the boys to play, check these guys out! You will not be disappointed. They play at Presidio Yacht Club in Sausalito, Friday, June 6 and Saturday June 24. Get a preview at: www.myspace.com/acommonvision
go out and buy the DVD for Festival Express (the tour about which "Might As Well" was written). Un-believable.
There are probably others, but do not miss this. That is all.
Any videos and/or audio tracks
of them playing together or a tour of them
together? I just got my friend interested
in the Grateful Dead.
Thanks so much.

Pink Floyd - 1973 - International Amphitheater, Chicago, IL. They were scary. Careful With That Axe Eugene floored the place, it just scared everybody to death. Dark Side of the Moon with quad speakers, there was sound coming from all four corners. A giant mirror ball, too. I was just a puppy, this show left an indelible impression on my young mind. I saw them a few times after that while Waters was still with them, but nothing else came close to this show.
Robert Hunter, Mississippi Nights, St. Louis, MO. Late 1979 or early 1980. It was twenty below outside, and very warm inside. Not very many people, it was like a private show. We all got very drunk. I remember stumbling up to Hunter and telling him that he is a "true troubadour" or something like that. I was trashed, but he was gracious, said thanks, and shook my hand. I remember the FOTD was real sweet.
The Dead Kennedys, COD's, Chicago, early to mid 1980's. My friend wore a shirt that said "Old Wave." This was the first time that I saw stage diving. This show was like a buzzsaw attack, not really our kind of music, but it was like being at some crazy European soccer game or something like that, except everybody would apologize if they ran into you in the melee. Good sweaty fun. Jello kept ranting on and on between songs while the guitar player filled the air with power chords.
Best shows other than the Dead (dates are ?):
Zappa (Uptown Theater 81)
Frank & Jerry show (U of IC Pavillion 84)
Telluride Bluegrass Festival (87 & 89)
Albert Collins (front row - Park West 92)
CSNY (Tampa 05)
Pink Floyd (Mile High 94?)
Roger Waters (Tampa 07 & Denver 08)
Allman Bro's (4th row Red Rocks 90)
Santana (2nd row - Poplar Creek 81)
Jorma and Hunter - (Cubby Hole? - 84?)
There's more but I can't remember them all!
Went to see Splintered Sunlight again last night at the World Cafe' live upstairs. A very cool venue and of coarse Splintered rocked the house!! So much fun!!! My feets are sore from dancin til 2am!!
Happy Mommy Day!!
They are from Michigan and did a whirlwind tour of the west. I think almost everyone there had been gifted a free ticket. The venue gave out many. Met hey bob and Chief Book Dog from here and their partners at the show. Greensky Bluegrass has shows on archive.net and a Website. I am on my 3rd or 4th childhold with all the joy from the jam bands that are around now and yes so much of it goes back to GOGD.
If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, infinite.
are those guys local where you live? Do they tour?
Gigi: my pleasure. I had fun doing that story.
Thanks for sharing that story
