Grisman headlining inaugural Chicago Bluegrass & Blues Fest

What's up guys, I just wanted to give everyone a heads up about the inaugural Chicago Bluegrass & Blues festival, this 11/22 at the historic Congress Theater, all benefiting the Saving Tiny Hearts Societies fight against the country's most common birth defect.

www.cbgbfestival.com

The first 10 folks that hit me up at michael.raspatello@gmail.com will get a pair of tickets mailed to them. We're excited for you to help us spread the word about this righteous endeavor

Arrive Monday morning @ SCE........sans flight delays, cancellations, stupidity.
I'll book a room close to the BJC or airport. I'll jump off that bridge when I get to it. LOL
I hear there will be alot of room because the football team is on the road. I really appreciate
your support.

With Gods help

I found Y'all

Uncle Lefty was telling me about this chat room so I finally had time to look it up. It looks like another great place to find recovery, music and friendship.....3 of the most important things in my life.

To JW: I found that once I got clean I was able to experience the music on a whole 'nother level than I ever had before. It was a more spiritual thing, a real connection that I had missed for all of those years. I have now been to more Dead/dead family shows clean and sober than I had been to using. It's a great experience and I don't have to do it alone...which is a good thing, because I can't do it alone. Virtually every concert that I go to these days I bring someone in recovery along with me. That makes it better for both of us. And when I'm real lucky I see a whole raft of others wearing those round yellow stickers and carrying yellow balloons (the symbols we use to identify each other). Best wishes in your quest.

See you at Penn State!!!!

Peace,
Randy

Come to the table, I'll be celebrating 10 yrs to the day of being clean! Last year I spent my anniversary at a Phil show. Guess thats how it was supposed to work out! Couldn't think of a better way I'd rather spend my anniversary then at a Dead show!

jw, You are wise to bring this up as most of us deal with triggers everyday. Its not the thought thats dangerous its what you do with it .Answer the thought with reasons why its not a good idea to use today and move on.Like Hoss said, it helps to talk with another recovering person about it. I needed to look inside and realize that no one or nothing could make me use, only me.Where are you spiritually?Do you attend meetings?Sponsor? These are things that work for me.I was fortunate to have an epiphany at a show in 89 when they played 'Not Fade Away' and we all sang along, I realized it was NOT necessary to artificially alter my mind to be part of the collective conciousness I know as the Grateful Dead. Anyway I hope this helps and you can reply openly here or PM if you want to contact me.
Peace, Love and Recovery
