    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!

    Anyone out there know lovely Liz Rutherford..?
    I met Liz in Guatemala in 1989. We became fast friends, and she visited me several times in Los Angeles. But we lost touch after I moved from my old place. I am hoping someone on this forum might know how to reach this incredible woman. She sold Guatemalan bracelets at Dead shows for at least a decade, and was known by so many on the tour. I saw footage of her in a Dead documentary awhile back. If anyone knows Lizzie, or how I might find her, please let me know. Her old friend Suzanne Ali in Los Angeles misses her!! Cheers!

    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.

    Australian Deadheads on Facebook
    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 :-)

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: http://gdvodcast.ning.com/events/my-first-grateful-dead-show-5 And info on past show archives here: http://gdvodcast.ning.com/forum/topics/my-first-grateful-dead-show-1 Hope to see you all on November 17th! Tell your friends... ;)

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.

Hey Now...Just a reminder that www.deadvids.com is hosting another My First Grateful Dead Show this Wednesday evening from 9:00-11:30pm/ET. This will be our first in the series to showcase one of our "international" Deadheads so it's gonna be a really special show. Please do join us in the Deadvids chat room (http://deadvids.com/dv) to participate in the interview. We're bound to cover just a little more ground! Peace...

"Come and join the party everyday" I'm sitting here in Auckland, waiting for another one to show up, then freak out while listening to it, download it and finally sit back with a smile on my face. There's the magic of the Dead for ya! I get to these diamonds usually at nightfall after all my work is done for the day. Then another day rolls by. Transitive, some might say. By the way, where are the JAFA Deadheads? The only one's I've met were at the John Mayall show last year, and they were Bulgarians - Go figure... Also noticed Wannadance from Wanaka - there's another :-)

I've tried to post this here a few times but for some reason I was never allowed to set up an account, finally it seems to work. I am the deadhead who accosted a guy at womad a few years back and declared there were five of us in adelaide. At one time there were about 10 of us and there have been more who have drifted in and out of the group over the years . There were a number of core panic and deadheads at the uni but they have all returned to the US . Well now we are down to about 3 who meet regularly as one of us buggered off overseas -he was much younger than the rest of us ,now he in his 30s living in London running trebuchet magazine ,out of those of us who are left two are old poms who are bickershaw veterans , the other a native aussie of the same vintage . there is another guy who we see occasionally who is in his 40s who was a tour head in the 90s , way cool guy -and another who isn't bothered about meeting up for some reason so he doesn't count. there are several ozzie heads who live in brisbane, melbourne and sydney who are all on the sugarmegs.org mailing list . join that and you will get some vine action as well as flac downloads on occasions if you are in adelaide get in touch and we can see if we can plug you into our listening and viewing sessions . although most of are old farts we have good beer and sound systems and we love the dead and much more music both old and new that moves our souls

Hey... i'm an American who has been in Melbourne for the past four years. Are there really deadheads around here? I've yet to meet one. I just returned from the last show in Chicago, which was so beautiful!!! It left me feeling both inspired and a bit sad. Are there any dead cover bands in Australia... or anything of the sort? Peace be with you.

I'm american as well and have been in Adelaide nearly 7 years now. I've run across a handful of Deadheads here and there. Not to long ago I bought a copy of Hofheinz from a girl in Melbourne who's boyfriend was an American Deadhead. That wasn't you was it? Can't say I've come across any cover bands. Mr Shark I sent you a pm. Would love to meet up for a pint.

in Brisbane , i know of three who get together-they watched Fare thee well as a group , in NSW there are another three , two of whom i have met at womadelaide . we had five watching the saturday show and two of us got together for the final one- dancing all the way through ! in melbourne theres Tascam Tim and Paisley Skies - we met with Paisley when we went over the see govt mule last year , there are heads around , but you need to search. i have a list of people on my website , but its pretty old and outdated as people now don't trade like they used to, i still get heads form new heads every now and again and i put them in touch with others in their town if i can anyway heres the list http://www.ukrockfestivals.com/AUSSIEDEADHEADS.htm on my main page - www.ukrockfestivals.com/index.html there is a contact email , best to get in touch that way , meanwhile i will send a group email to all those addys on that list and see who is still active and i'll update it . chilly , i'd love to meet up ,i'll PM you when i have finished this general post . as for dead cover bands, i've never come across any over here , as they never toured they have no profile . if we can't get more than 20 people to go see widespread ( i was at the gov for their 98 tour - about 25 people there :-) then theres no chance for any dead cover bands , sad but true , in fact the fare thee well shows would have been the most publicity they ever had over here in the press apart from Jerry's death

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!

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

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
