Last year the legendary Patti Smith wrote a real stunner of an essay in which, among other things, she dubbed the period from August 1 to August 9  "Jerry Week."

Don't miss the essay, but post your own thoughts here.

Jerry week

Jerry Garcia birthday 8-1 My first Grateful dead show 8-5 Jerry Garcia passed on 8-9
I have been feeling and celebrating the "Days Between" since August 1 1996.
Grateful Dead shows were like going to a family reunion. Jerry Garcia Band shows
were like going to church.
I am in full on celebration mode for Jerry!⚡️
Happy Birthday my friend.

Happy Birthday!!

This week is kinda special for me too. Not only is Jerry missed but so too I miss my Dad. This week my Dad would have been 100 if he were alive.

If you're going to Jerry Day

in McLaren Park in SF, and you're coming from the East Bay, please note that BART *is not running* this weekend due to construction. There will be buses, but plan accordingly, as things will be more complicated than usual.

And now back to your regularly scheduled festivities....

Jerry Week

I don't always listen to the Dead like I used to. There are times when I feel like I need to listen to the Dead. That week is one of those times. I listened to the Dead every day, just to hear Jerry's voice. Happy Jerry week to everyone, and rest in piece Jerry Garcia.

You are the best Jerry rest and listen

I live to be dead and I am dead to live. Life is all we have and music is all we can ride. Enjoy every minute of it.
