for starters, are there any shows you have tickets for already? What tours are you planning to hit from an audience standpoint? This would help focus our thinking a bit.
so I guess I will ask if there are specific venues folks could direct us on? We are on the East coast...
I'd say it would depend wildly on the promoter and the venue involved, seriously. Others with recent experience are invited to weigh in, but there are some shows where vending is actively encouraged and there's a clear path on how to do it, and other shows where you'll get mercilessly harassed and busted if you try. Often on the same tour. Or such has been my observation over the years. So I'd say before you invest heavily in this plan, do a little research, because it is big fun and many miraculous, enlightening rewards can come along the way and some real bummers as well. Watch each card, etc.
Hi all... A friend and I are thinking about doing Shake down at a show or 2 this year... We have questions of how to go about it. I have heard if u don't follow proper channels the powers that be can just take your wares and kick you out....We will be truly grateful for any info on this. (~):}
I can't find any evidence of such an image, so it could be that whoever posted it thought better of it somewhere along the line. If you get a specific link, I'll follow up.
shrams, thanks, dealt with it, I THINK... you were one of many that got caught up in that little issue...
Anyone going to Furthur's NY Beacon Run? Just wanted to know who was going and what to expect financially. I will be taking a bus from Bethlehem,PA to a NY,NY station. Any advice/help/guide? I'm 18 and will be doing this solo for the 1st time. I have been to other stores but only with friends. I love The deads music and will be seeing Bob' Acoustic show in Wilkes=Barre, PA. Thanks alot anything, help would be useful
I once found a picture of the piece I'm referring to on this website. Tonight I'm unable to find it. I'm trying to set the record straight about this piece. The paragraph that was under the photo describing it was a cute story but completely false. So please if anyone (you guys) cares or at least is curious I would love to talk to someone.I can be contacted @ Iwantalan@hotmail.com or @ 781-733-4361
Peacefully, Alan Walker

When posting to the forum I kept getting a gateway error message and I assumed my post never got submitted. I was wrong and now there are 6 or 7 posts for everytime I resubmitted. Since I really don't want to look like a spam bot and would like to share the links with this community is it possible to delete all but one of the posts? It's the one's with Into The Blue in the subject line. I'm assuming this has to be done on your end. Thanks so much.
quite a few Furthur discussions going on here, so jump right in...
Copied the below text from "Couple observations from last night" cause I would like to see the scene clean-up a bit. I sure do miss seeing the old guard around at shows. Hey I miss Jerry bout as much as anyone, but if you're alive check Furthur because they are bringing the real deal around and around, for only so long, this time. What do other Deadheads think about helping the scene be better. Are Bobby/ Phil helping the Shakedown scene happen well? Perhaps I should ask an insider, I think there's one here . . .
Happy New Year! 2012. What a ripping show last night. Only Jerry's live presence could have made it better. Not to say JK isn't tearing it up, cause he is bringing the heat. The whole band is tight, in a good way. Wifey and I wondering why there aren't more pictures of Russo? I, like many Deadheads (only title I've excepted, post Garcia's passing) wonder at Mickey and Bills absence. If it's a financial decision, I am appalled. That said, Russo is excellent. I can not say one is better than another. Even JK and Jerry, sure do miss Jerry's voice and playing; if I could never hear him again and he was sitting next to me listening to Furthur that would be better than how it is. However, w/ JK all I can hope is that he plays as much, or more , than Jerry, Loves life, a bit cleaner, and rocks on and on; love that his own sound and arrangements are coming through and hoping Bobby/ Phil can support him in leading the band. Certainly Bobby/ Phil will always garnish due respect; but come-on, lead guitar drives the bus; even though everyone, even me, lead the band sometimes. It is how it is and I am loving it. Listened to a Phish show from a good friend who's never taken them in, then a week ago they came home for him. http://operationwasabi.com/nospoilers/ph2011-12-28-set1-ns.mp3 Just heard the Decemberists' version of Row Jimmy, excellent. The miracles and life lessons I've received from my years touring, taping, cooking, selling trinkets, and cleaning up, just awesome. Love, Truth, abundant.
Last people in CalExpo lot, cops driving by w/ lights flashing, no sirens, me ripping djembe, girl listening, it was an excellent night, Gloria not the highlight but best version I'd heard. Lone dude crosses the lot to only other car. Shortly there-after my elbow was dripping, it's confirmed, I am home. A few days later at Laguna Seca there's Pepper fixing some dude's car, dash torn apart shoulder deep in helping another go on down the road, couple hours before LSD start time (that's Laguna Seca Days) That's what's missing from the Furthur scene: family. We've received criticism from folks for having our children at the shows . . . I am seriously sorry folks missed the scene "back in the day," but it's simple, LOVE/ TRUTH.
So what's with the hating? Phish rips, you don't like em don't listen, maybe one day you'll like them, maybe not. If I know one thing in this life: keep an open mind, make no decision before it's time. No Time to Hate. Be Here Now.
At the Merch. table inside they hand out little advertisement/ setlist stiffys. It's not my gig, mostly cause if the music is on I'm gigging. I've loved tracking the setlists and often have notes of jams not caught in other lists, but, while I'm writing I'm missing something, sometimes that's OK. Kind of like a camera, a little separated from the experience while I'm trying to frame and capture it, best done for me in moving meditation.
Last night ripped! So looking forward to re-cast in an hour. I love that people are willing to put opinions out, hash it out a bit, contemplate. Nice to have a forum, other than AA/ NA where folks communicate without interruption. Although the Dead shows of yore there were multiplicities of verbal and non that were w/o interruption. I could walk through entire shows, and I'm saying all over, w/o bumping another but lightly, respectfully and with notice, care, and communication. Bringing the vibe to Furthur: remove the Crack, H, Nitrous, X; propensities. Bring back the LOVE/ TRUTH. Quick shout out to John Dwork and hARRY hAHN. LOVE YOU GUYS!
