I was at the London show. It was a fun Monday night at the beautiful old Camden Palace. The videos from the show are really high quality.

A big thank you..

to our brothers and sisters across the pond for the great youtube vids of CRB's European tour. How I wished I had made the trek.

Dead show in Soviet Era Moscow???

I can't find it in the show list, and want to fact check my story.

In 1977 I took a quarter off from school (Berkeley) and accompanied my father on a State-Department sponsored visit to Dirty-War-era Argentina. Our host was the Cultural Attache, which, he explained, was usually translated in South America as "La Cia." He winked.

He told me that a previous posting had been in Moscow, and he had been part of a team that got the Dead to do a concert there (or maybe it was in then-Leningrad), and that in terms of subverting the dominant paradigm (my words not his!) it had been a smashing success.

I would have thought it was on the 1972 tour, but I don't see it on the list. Is my story false? Surely no one will accuse me of having been duped by a CIA agent!

My first exposure to the Dead was, at the age of 13, riding out Geary Boulevard on the running board of a flatbed truck that carried the intermittently playing band, with 500,000 other advocates for peace, love and understanding in the great Moratorium march of November 1969.

Looking for...

I'm looking for Marc Reuter, my friend from Belgium. He lives near the border of Luxembourg and Germany. He's very much into Derek Trucks Band, and of course the Dead and other jam bands. He goes to lots of shows in Belgium, and Germany... so hopefully someone can help me.

His email seems to not be working any more.

If anybody knows how to contact him then please let me know..!

It's been a while since I was on this site..! :)
