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...
I'm a deadhead transplant as well, originally from Santa Cruz, CA and now living in Fitzroy, Melbourne area. I play guitar off and on and would love to jam with others, there's not too much of a jam band scene out here (from what I know) and I def miss it.
When is your guys next meet up?
Any possibility that the Dead or Friends of Phil or Rat Dog or String Cheese Incident would tour NZ in 2010?

DeadHead from Sydney here....

I am not a musician AT ALL, which is another reason I'm lucky to live where there are so many...

I think I get a bit nostalgic around Jerry's birthday every year. I appreciate the warm welcome, Mary and Chas. I just downloaded a little bit of this year's High Sierra Festival 4th of July show from Leftover Salmon's newsletter. The kids and I have been dancing around the living room together.
Mary, are you a musician? I've had a lot of good times in Oakland. When I moved to New Zealand the lack of live music was a bit of a culture shock for me. I decided that instead of whining about it I would have to make my own. Easier said than done. I bought a nice semi accoustic guitar, but I am still pretty challenged to bend it to my will. I think it has only made me more appreciative of 'good' music played by others.
I'm really interested in finding out about jam bands in NZ and Aussie! Any NZ dates, downloads, links to sites are appreciated.
