It has been pointed out that in our haste to set up regional enclaves, we neglected our neighbor north of the border. We herewith remedy this sad oversight. Heads of Canada, this is your clubhouse!
We know you're up there...
This forum seems a little dead (no pun intended) last post was may 2016. Just wanted to raise my freak flag. Im a lifelong deadhead, guitarist, bass player and turntablist and as far as I can tell the last hippy in the city of Ottawa. I make some sick dead turntable mixes. Just sayin.
I hope they record this!
Hey check it out. bobby is playing at The Carlu in Toronto at a benefit for Einstein Legacy Project on May 15th
Any Calgarian heads heading off to the Dark Star Jubilee in Columbus in May? It's only $130 US for a ticket to the 3 day festival and with DSO playing 3-2 set shows, it works out to only $14 per hour of Dead music... plus all the other acts! Sadly I don't have the time or money to get to as many shows as I would like, so I've got to stretch it where I can...
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!
Thanks Marye, always the little brother that was forgotten at home...remember the cross Canada tour of '70, we know how to treat 'em!
I am an Edmontononian/Saskatoonian/Torontonian (is there such a thing - since they are diametrically opposite in nature) Deadhead. I was not lucky enough to win out on MO and got shut out of TM...still thinking about heading down to the shows, though have no hotel or formal plans as of yet, so yeah I am open to chatting and finding a bench say in Gary IN somewhere!
Hello Fellow Deadheads!
Wondering if there are any deadheads in the Edmonton Alberta area (Sherwood Park mainly) If so would be great to meet up and talk dead!
PS: really jealous of anyone who is going to the last trip in Chicago this summer!
yes there is, kitigan zibi and quite of few from us there..
Calgary deadhead here, just got my Congratulations email, anybody else in the area going?
