Count me in for another Melb Deadhead. Never saw them live, got into the GD round 91 when I was in year 8. Bought the Grateful Dead Movie for $10 in a video store which used to be Bourke St. Had a few good GD conversations withe the guys from Greville and also Basement Discs.
Bumped into another deadhead at Flaming Lips last year. He was wearing a Steal your face and I had the Stealie converse on. My friend leads a alt country band called Low Rent, which has a bit of Dead influence, some Grisman-esk mandolin in a few songs too. I've been trying to get him to cover Mississippi Half-Step live.
I wanted to let you all know that we are hosting a special show on Deadvids.com on Wednesday, November 17th, 2010, from 9:00-11:30pm/ET called My First Grateful Dead Show: International Edition.
Each month, Deadvids.com hosts a new series called My First Grateful Dead Show. I host the show and each month a member guest hosts with me and we listen to their very first Grateful Dead show that they attended, and I interview them with 20 questions. During the interview, others that are present can ask additional questions of the guest host. We've been doing this show since late July 2010, and it's been catching on as people get to understand what it's about. We've found it really interesting and inspiring to hear each person's unique journey into this community and how it has impacted their lives.
So far, it's always been an American/US-based deadhead that is my guest host, but next month we will have our first "international" guest host - a deadhead from overseas. I can't tell you who, or what show (we try to keep those under wraps until show time), but I would like to invite all of you, US-based and those living outside the US, to please join us! FYI, our guest host will have to be up into the wee hours of their morning to do this show, so perhaps you guys overseas can make a party of it and get together and listen/participate in the discussion that evening, make an all-nighter of it...
If you cannot make it, we post an archive on Deadvids.com of all the past shows so folks can see whose show it was and the link to archive.org for that show.
You are all most welcome! Please stop by the Deadvids chat room to fully participate in the interview discussion. For more information, please check out info on the next show here:
And info on past show archives here:
Hope to see you all on November 17th! Tell your friends... ;)

Be Safe Play Hard And Have Fun
i've only been listening to the grateful dead for a few years.
i heard of them when i saw a show of mewithoutYou and they covered ripple
Aaron Weiss even made a point of telling us to all go home and listen to the dead if we've never heard them. so last year my wife brought me home the grateful dead best of double lp from some second hand store in melbourne.
i was just wondering if there is anyone in brisbane that i can chill with and listen to some dead maybe even play some music together?

The Estimated Prophet
Im a young (19) DeadHead livin in Melbourne, unfortunately i never even got the chance to see any Dead shows. i only heard Grateful Dead for the first time about 4 or 5 months ago but since then its pretty much all ive been listening too, as well as getting into alot of bluegrass and folk.
Ive been drumming for around 5 years and for the most part ive been in jam bands, and im always looking for more people to get together and have a jam with.
I would love to meet up with the Melbourne deadheads if your all still having those get togethers, and if you would welcome a young DeadHead, but from reading on here it doesent look like theres been one in a while, if someone could please get back to me that would be great.
Email is email@example.com
or pm me
Redwood & Simon contact me and i will put u on to our little group,here in Melbourne.
Cheers in Dead ..Chas
Originally from New Zealand, now living in Canberra (ouch) - any other DeadHeads here? Surely I can't be the only one...
