Are you the only All Blacks fan who wears a Dead shirt to every match? Are you having trouble finding people to trade with in Tonga? Find neighbors here!
Just got to Sydney about a week ago & came across this thread - sent a request to join the group. I'm living in Darlinghurst, a couple of blocks from Hyde Park - need to find some music & good vibes!
I'm from the US - already booked a ticket back there for Delfest this year - but would love insights on where to find good music & kind folks in the area.
Going on 4 years in Sydney now and I have met only a single head who has since returned stateside! This city needs a jam band, anybody want to help me fill the air?
Don't tell me this town ain't got no heart!
given that almost no one bothers with email anymore and Facebook has a lot of heads online i have created a closed group for Australian and new zealand heads who want to have a natter and perhaps get together , so far there are 12 of us in a few days, we need to drag in more people , then we can possibly organise some gigs where a bunch of us attend . we are posting up pix and links to bands playing and hope to keep it ticking over daily.So far we have members in Melbourne, Adelaide and Brisbane .
you will need to look up the Bobo Bolinski who lives in Nagasaki ( yeh right ) send him a friend request and your'e in .
BTW we have few rules if any , but no arguing about which Aussie rules teams are the best :-)
Hello :) I'm in melbourne just wondering if there's any Aussie facebook groups or meet ups or ANYTHING? I wish there was a community here like over in the states.
Is there an active, underground GD scene in Auckland or NZ for that matter. Can't seem to find (m)any around; I sometimes pass some by at local markets, titirangi village etc; and have some broad conversations but nothing in the way of a 'fandom'. I'm sure you exist and if you do...ping away!!! Lets start a 'GD appreciation society' in NZ
Lane Community College must certainly have been an experience.
Oregon was lovely time of my life, in the early 1980's
Listen to live GD, from 1970 and 1971 and 1972. Until the final days with Pigpen.
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:
1/22/71 Lane Community College
6/21/71 Chateau d’Herouville
8/4/71 Terminal Island
10/19/71 Northrop Auditorium
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
Thanks in advance to all who participate and contribute!
if you are in adelaide get in touch and we can see if we can plug you into our listening and viewing sessions .
Based on how cool and groovy most Aussies are I would think the Dead would fit right on in over here! Maybe RatDog will make a triumphant return starting with a week of shows in Sydney! That would be a dream come true for me! You never though, I was lucking enough to see RD play 3 shows in Italy!
