In Search of... People
Looking for friends and family you've lost touch with? Post here!
Hi there - I figure this is probably one of the safest places on the interwebs to post this, so here goes.
I live in Philly, am a huge music lover, and I've been slowly getting turned onto the Dead over the last 6 months or so, but I don't really know where to start. For one thing, I'm overwhelmed, to say the least, by the size and scope of their output. As a longtime fan and collector of Phish (is it kosher to admit that here? j/k), I know what it means to be consumed by a band's music, to know their history and the musical tendencies of the band members backwards and forwards… but that makes it all the more frustrating for me, not knowing where to start with the Dead; there's just so much MORE, in every way. For another thing, it's all well and good for me to go to sites like deadlistening.com, or poke around archive.org, and listen to whatever I happen to find, but going it solo just seems so antithetical to the spirit of community that this band has inspired, and continues to inspire. I don't know a soul who is a Dead fan, but I really want this to be something I can share, and not just keep to myself.
Simply put, I need help. I can tell that there's a universe of music here, waiting to reveal itself, but I think I need a guide of sorts to get me started.
So if you're a Deadhead living in the Philadelphia area; if you're the sort of person who hears an amazing jam and wants to share it with everyone you know; if you're willing to help a new seeker make some sense of the Dead - find an entry point, so to speak - I'd love to hear from you. You can PM me here on dead.net. Thanks! -- Jon
Oh yeah, I just rememberd Tom M.
Hey Dizzy, Darryl, Katman, Woz, Jon, Cue, Carl, Bob and the rest of the guys from Fall 1973 at Geary Hall Penn State University Park, are you out there? Europe '72 was playing all the time and the air was filled with sweet smoke. You also lived in the Mars Hotel on College Ave in Sun's Slums after moving out of the dorms. I'd love to hear from you,

Looking for any Heads in San Antonio or Austin. People who saw the band and still go to shows: ACL, stubbs, emos, anything. I ran into a couple of Heads at the Tame Impala show back in December and had a good time talking Dead and hanging out with like minded souls. Anyone else out there??
