Two good seats available for May 2

Plans changed, so I'm selling two Sec. 213, Row 6 seats for face value ($100 each).
It's a shame, as both the D.C. and Charlottesville shows were great, and this one will be historic - last on the East Coast this tour and last at the Spectrum.

Preshow gathering in the parking lot

The band Attitune is going to try to set up a preshow jam in the parking lot. Look for a flag with decorations. Everyone is welcome to come hang out. We are going to have an open mike/jam bring some instruments or use ours. any questions e-mail dazebetween27@yahoo.com.

I'll be there

It'll be my first Dead show as well, got tix to the 5/2 show, but gonna go down Friday afternoon for the parking lot scene. I am so excited. I've got the whole weekend off work and boy oh boy am I going to need it! It's gonna be something else seeing them play their last show at the ol' Spectrum.

For all you Philly newcomers, Cheesesteaks - Pat's and Geno's are both great and located right next to each other.

South Street is a great place to hit too while you're in the area, lot's of neat little shops and restaurants. (And Jim's Steaks)

You can't leave cars overnight in the Sports Complex lots, and pretty much the South/North Philly areas aren't very safe to just camp out in your car. As stated the Philly cops are generally pretty mellow, but as of last year, State Police invaded the city as a measure to "help take the burden off the City cops" The Staties and the Philly Cops do not get along at all, some of that whole "we don't need your help" kinda shit. I know Philadelphia was not too thrilled to have State Police within the city limits though. But for the most part, The Philly police have bigger fish to fry then Deadheads pre and post concert. Just don't do anything stupid in plain site and you'll be just fine :)

My girlfriend and I made some cool tye-dye shirts for the show, but everyone's gonna be in tye-dye! We definitely need a big flag with the site's name on it as a central base. And anyone with a blackberry or iPhone should post a general location of where it is on the website for people to find once they're down there! Because the sport's complex is pretty large! It's not like the ol' days a lot of you folks were used to with just The Spectrum and The Vet. Time's have changed!!

Hope to see you all there

Looking forward to my first shows in a while since I've been in Europe for some time now. Philly always has a good show in store.
