By request, a gathering spot for Chicago-bound folks to connect and plan!
It has been a crazy weekend for me with hardly anytime for checking devices for electronic communication...thank you ALL for all the work in accumulating lists; getting us on here; soliciting ideas; and generally putting things in motion. Let inertia rule! I did manage to catch a north-Texas based Dead cover band Friday night...Forgotten Space. they are beyond excellent. They occasionally do small tours...I highly recommend your catching them if them if they ever swing by you.
GSTS TOO emails
Caveat Emptor (Latin for "buyer beware") Seen a few blogs on the other forums asking what a GDTS TOO "real e-mail" looks like. I have a screen shot of one and it was confirmed by my buddy who scored GDTS TOO tickets to be authentic. If any Daydreamers want to see it, drop me an e-mail. You have my addy.
@StubHub; @ avatar
Prices on eBay are dropping also. There are multiple GDTS TOO tix on there as well. I need a single GDTS TOO tix for my wife for Fri and Sun. NO TM tix. Gotta have the commemorative one. If anyone else needs a single for any of those nights let me know. I usually hit the parking meter though @ ~ $500 per ticket. Avatar - hey, ASL, I can not WAIT to see your rrrrrgrrrrr avatar recommendation :-) Hey, Uncle Rich is a damn goodman - I'm sure he's taken care of a fellow sister !!
CID with Hotel
I saw a similar package (with 100-level reserved seats vs. GA) sell on ebay for $12,000. Figure it breaks down with hotel @ $500 per night for 3 nights and $1750 per seat x 6 seats.
@friend of the Devil
So glad you made it....btw where's my $20 bill...it just vanished in the air.... Make yourself at home....
Re Devil CID
Goddamn son, I could retire with that mad jack
re: your $20
It's in Utah...in a cave up in the hills. GPS coordinates to follow.
Nah just keep it...buy me a beverage at the Circus in 102 daze
Where is 102 anyway? Probably nowhere near 145....Beezelbub been dancing around 138 trying to sell 24's, but we ain't letting him in. p.s I have no idea what I'm talking about. Or do I?
Well, well, well
you can never tell Levis announced.. Surprise. :|
https://twitter.com/BillWalton/status/580117293117493248 Which means Chicago price erosion continues !!!
yeah, need the official, but I don't think Tall Bill would tweet that if it wasn't happening.Walton's been in tight with the Band for decades.
re Walton knows
Believe it if you need it or leave it if you dare...
tfonts i need one...
for Sunday for, just 1 for myself. and in fact, I still in sorta MO limbo for Fri and Sat...but I digress, ...now that Santa Clara looks official, my backyard, I'm so confused, and now I tri-gress. 1 sunday tix if you happen to find a package in ur search for ur wife
Okay Tribe, so yell at me if I'm out of line. Bill Walton, really? I know he was an amazing b-ball player and has been a true Head for many years...but can I ask? WHY are we getting our information from Bill Walton? Enough already. Sorry, but this is pissing me off. JUST SECURE SOME DATES YOU GUYS, FIGURE OUT HOW YOU'RE GOING TO BE FAIR (JUST THIS TIME) ABOUT GETTING TICKETS OUT...AND F***ING DO IT! I cannot bear another run on tickets in California, scalpers, spinning wheels, dashed dreams (again). This is crap. This is nonsense. Sorry Daydreamers. Cranky mood tonight. I've been doing this for more than 3 decades and I have NEVER...this is all just STUPID. Wow. I think I need therapy.
No, didn't see your post. Sorry. Taking a deep breath now after my rant. Not really feeling refreshed though. Please resend. Thanks.
ASL you dont need therapy
your reaction actually seems pretty rational, considering the catalyst. I just hope they figure out a more equitable way to distribute tix...just be aware...there is still more demand than supply no matter how they sell tickets.
I do not take a deleted tweet as real news. But I find myself looking at Levi's stadium to see what it costs to get a PSL season club ticket arrangement to get in on a pre-sale. Not seriously, but you just get curious. Man it is a strange world.
@ Swan, rrrrrgrrrr and SD'ers West...
Sunshine Daydreamers West? rrrrrgrrrrrr have you lost your mind? (that's a silly question....) This original merry gang of pranksters is all I can handle, dude. It's taking so much time my poor wife is beginning to think I'm having an affair!! I feel like the dude on the "it's Jake, from State Farm" commercial - sitting in my home office, blogging and spreadsheeting and she's like - REALLY??? Ah....but I digress....g'mornin' y'all!!!! T-Shirt update is in your in-boxes. Please opine (love that word) via e-mail. Thanks !!
@tfonts re SD west
So disappointing dude.... Ok, I get that you're only human, and btw kickass job so far...on the Midwest trek...gotta preserve the family unit. Guess that means those of us venturing to the left coast in June are On our own, on our own, ON OUR OWN!!!! remember: those that could not sink or swim were just left there to float In Ticketmaster spinning ball limbo!!!! Have a Grate day all!
eBay GDTS TOO tickets
Hey guys and gals: I need one for Fri and one Sun shows. There's a listing on eBay from the same seller for all dates, one pair for each show. These were for the original PL1 seats ($214.50 each). These will be for lower bowl seats, or, what is now called GA PIT tickets as per the new seat map. Anyone want to go in on a pair with me?

Dead Covers Project...
For those that have not seen this, and in the spirit of NCAA March Madness, dead.net has a Dead Covers Project and a bracket set-up for you to select the best home-grown cover of classic Dead tunes. It's pretty cool: http://www.dead.net/bracket/# My fav, and there's a few really great ones, is Mississippi Half-Step Uptown Toodeloo by the Lower Companions: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v0Wu4sHHo9o Cheers !!
I saw it last week and went through them all, pretty good. I voted for the 10 year old kid playing scarlet/fire.
For my beautiful avatar!
I ended up with West LA from the looping guy. Ultimately, he just put some good stuff together on that jam. Not a big looping effect fan, but it impressed me. I might have a go at again to see what I pick today. lol
@ASL hey ggggggggggrrrrrrrrrllllllllll!!!!
Sportin' quite the timely avatar.... You have good taste in logos... And it suits you.... Jerry and his Bears, Goin' down the road....one last time...feelin' bad.....after the pic a nic! Glad I could help a head in need. Just call me rrrrrrrgrrrrrrrr
Jake from State Farm
tfonts, I'm gonna check out the T-shirt design as we speak. I think it might go with my khakis. By the way, I sound hideous. Keep on daydreaming!
But bro, you are the KING of spreadsheet BLANKS. EVERY CELL. BLANK. ps - nice khakis though.
I called Jake...
and he took care of it. :D I did get a "who's that on the phone" though. Things are coming along nicely at supersonic speed, and as Marty McFly said about Johnny B. Goode: All right, guys, uh, listen. This is a blues riff in "B", watch me for the changes, and try and keep up, okay?
With tfonts...nice khakis
the bus came by i got on
