Just like your favorite jam, things are going to get a bit funky on Dead.net over the next week or so. Community accounts will be temporarily closed October 16th-17th and may be under further maintenance through October 22nd. But rest assured, we will be back up and better than ever shortly thereafter. Stay tuned!
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?
Hey, It's me California Bob with my first post on Dead.net wondering if there are any other Deadheads in the Fraser Valley/Vancouver that are going to make the 3 shows in Chicago. I will definitely be going & would love to put together a joint venture with other interested parties. 9 days to tickets!!!
Hi fellow CanHeads,
Long time no chat. So, who's thinking of making the trip to Chicago? We definitely are, hoping for mailorder mojo so we don't have to navigate the online madness. Looking forward to seeing some of you there. Can't wait to jam! K
Hey all, heading up to Tremblant any suggestions for we're to party at night. Looks awsome but wasn't sure how the parting was in summer. Any info would be appreciated!
(noting that my personal experience is limited to Stanford), one thing that seems to be a pretty big deal in the powwow scene is No Drugs. Which would make clueless hippie wannabes on the scene even more problematic. (Never mind the fact that the powwow in question takes place in the eucalyptus groves a stone's throw from the Frost, at about the right time of year, and it does bring back the memories...)
Claiming any expertise in powwow matters is risky business for sure. My parents and grandparents always went to shows and pow wows both. But I'm adopted and never knew any of this until I searched and reunited with them. Yes. I'm a head and then found out my birthparents and grandparents were too....must be in the DNA!
I would sooooo like to hear from heads who have followed both trails as I gain some footing on walking both myself. The respectfulness is a no-brainer to me. Though, no matter how respectful, it's deeply inbedded in the powwow culture to be critical (sound familiar?) of newbs, "wannabees", white people, and "Hippies". I have been to a few, danced, and have had no issues. There is a code of etiquette for sure....just like shows. It's these similarities that would make for interesting discussion. Dancing or drumming and how it makes one feel at either place would be interesting to hear about too.
Heads digging powwows would be a pretty obvious crossover. Though, I'd like to turn it around and hear perspectives from Indians who love the Dead. But hearing from heads with extensive powwows under their belt would be cool too. Intertribals are just such a sweet time to dance and feel the drum. In fact, any discussion on this would be cool. Something I've not seen much of. Maybe this is a very small niche we're talking here, which would make it all the more intersting yet rare to get real responses.
Any Native Heads out there? Maybe I ought to risk posting on some Indian boards and some folks might come out of the "closet". In Indian culture, it seems totally uncool to be into anything remotely "hippy". Yet, hip-hop, metal, and other genre's seem to fly just fine.
