Second Annual Grateful Dead Meet-Up At The Movies

The Grateful Dead is back in select movie theaters nationwide for only one night on Thursday, April 19 at 7:00PM (local time) for the second annual Grateful Dead Meet-Up At The Movies presented by Fathom. This year we've reached deep into the Grateful Dead vault to present the unreleased iconic concert captured at Alpine Valley Music Theatre on July 18, 1989 (the show directly following the band's famous Downhill From Here performance.) The event features the complete concert with two and a half hours of music!

Don’t miss your only opportunity to join friends and fans for the second annual Grateful Dead Meet-Up at the Movies at 7:00PM (local time) in select theatres Thursday, April 19.

A good time

A small but bouncy crowd in Spokane. A few folks up dancing. Lots of fun to revisit Alpine Valley where I used to go to shows when I lived in the midwest. A really good show.

Almost forgot to go...

I was on my way home, thinking, "I can get home in time to go to the library" (I had a pair of books waiting for me), when suddenly, while listening to disc 1 of Crimson, White, & Indigo on the stereo I remembered the date and its significance. I pulled the car over, called my wife to drive down to meet me, and we trekked to Riverside (CA), arriving just in time for the very start of the film (I want to do terrible things to the ticketing and snack bar staff, who were very careful to get every part of every order exactly right, and not rush anything--emphasis on the total absence of "rush" about anything).

We found our seats while the band tuned up onscreen. Bliss. Smallish crowd (about 40, I'd guess), but enthusiastic. The one thing I would have liked would have been a short intermission between the two sets. After all, we're all getting a touch of grey (and some of us are getting a hard shove of silver) in the old hairline, and it's nice to be able to stretch the legs out after a bit.

Excellent camera work, with lots of attention to Jerry's fretboard work. I was surprised to see Wolf malfunction (try as he could, Jerry couldn't get the main pickups to switch on after exiting the MIDI opening of Dear Mr. Fantasy), but otherwise it was a spot-on show. Splendid encore of Quinn.

Ready...

Ready for the other two Alpine Valley shows (7/18 and 7/20/89) now. No need to wait for next April--we can happily enjoy them in, say, August and December...

:-)

Thank you..... for a real good time!

It was a real nice surprise to see and hear Wolf, I had forgotten that Jerry broke it out at this show.

And do you suppose that Jerry and Brent were conspiring to hijack Sugar Mag from Bobby right there before the start of the second set?

My teenage cousin made the astute observation that the unusual second set lineup seemed like something Furthur might play today. I now have complete faith that the future appreciation of this fine music is in very good hands indeed.

Please release this as a dvd/cd set!!!

Thank you, I can't wait 'til next year.

Happy 4/20, y'all.... smoke 'em if ya got 'em...!

Jerry smiled at me

Great show, nice set lists. Jerry was having a good time, and the exchanges between Jerry and Brent ( musicaly and visualy ) took me back. Every one looked and sounded so good, wow! Wolf was a treat.
The sound was good, though the volume could have been turned up. Many cries of "Louder!"
No ticket taker at our theatre, so people in and out from the parking lot all night :)
Thank you for a great night.
Please release on disc, help fill in the blanks.

Sugar into Scarlet

Sat in the front section and thoroughly enjoyed the show. Bird Song was great.
Phil seemed more shadowy than usual. Brent sure was stoked.

Hey Hal, did you have a good time up in Spokane ?!

wow, this was just lovely

I hope it's out on DVD one of these days.

Makes me really realize again how much I miss Brent, and in particular his chemistry with Jer.

problem with Wolf

My friend sitting next to me noticed the problem..........unplugged. We were hollering at the screen "its unplugged!".........we so badly wanted Wolf to stay.
