By request, a gathering spot for Chicago-bound folks to connect and plan!
Don’t forget about Larry Reichman’s Cornell Book project. In case you missed it, Larry was attending Cornell in 1977 and had access to Barton Hall for the entire day on 5/8. He photographed set-up, sound check, show and crowd. He’s trying to publish his photos as an oversize, archival quality book. Read more including David Lemieux’s comments at the link below.
As of Saturday Morning 5/20 there are LESS THAN 3 DAYS LEFT in the “All or Nothing”* Kickstarter campaign. As Hugh Romney told the crowd at Woodstock, “… for you people that still believe capitalism isn't that weird, you might help him out and … ” … make a pledge and get book(s) and more:
* All or nothing: You won’t be charged until if/when the total goal is reached. Right now over 81% of the 27,500.00 goal has been pledged.
FYI: I do not know & have never met Larry – just support his effort to preserve a slice of Grateful Dead lore.
Oh, they are playing a festival called Cosmic Reunion. French Village is in the middle of the countryside... it is a good time, very crunchy, very outdoors....
i just checked Forgotten space FB page. i had venue mixed up...they're actually at astral valley art park in french village on may 25. I sort of know St L area, but I'm not familiar with french village. FB says 45 min south of St L. Anyway, the band is outstanding.
Thanks for the heads up bro, will have to check them out.
The Old Rock House is a really cool venue downtown by the river. They have a kick-ass whiskey cellar.
I am not seeing Forgotten Space on the lineup but there is a band called
Tinsley Ellis Blues is Dead who focus on the more bluesy numbers from the Dead's repertoire. They play on the 21st.
Hope things are good out west...
keep an eye out for Forgotten Space...top notch GD tribute band, but that doesn't really do them justice. playing near St Louis late May at the Rock House I think. Playing at Martyr's in Chicago a day or two before D&C's show at Wrigley.
They get my personal "no suck" guarantee.
Kenny Withrow on lead also plays in New Bohemians.
They occasionally go to Little Rock, KC, Denver and other cities generally between Dallas and Chicago. Check out their Facebook.
Enjoy the shows
been listening a lot to blue mountain the last couple of days. i liked it at first, and it is growing on me even more.
also, got a big bottle of brother thelonius in frig...waiting for the weekend to come!
there is some interesting youtube video of their musical pig roast
This is from a post dated March 28, 2012, in the forum titled "Bob Weir and the National light up TRI for Headcount"
...mind, you, this is 2012:
As they were going off the air you could hear someone say 'that was best campfire they had ever been to" or something like that. It seemed to me that Bob had enough fun with it that he will resurrect this in the future."
Thank you, Byerly, for your astute comment... fast forward to 2017 and your prediction comes true. Who woulda figured.
Some might find it a coincidence that the day Bobby rolled into town (Wednesday, April 12) for his sound test on his new spring tour, the City Council of Dallas voted to decriminalize pot.
A coincidence? I think not...
Thanks, Mr. Weir, for doing your part.
it is tasty!
