The band says Happy New Year with an announcement of almost twenty shows in April and May. More details to come!
this tour is kind of over, but other forum topics are reasonably lively. There's a good deal more to the site than this one topic.
Whats up brother? Haven't seen you in awhile!! Marye - You crack me up! :-) "I've stayed in every blue-light cheap hotel. Can't win for tryin. Dust off those rusty strings just one more time. Gonna make em shine."
Hey there, can anyone tell me if GDTS-TOO has sent out the mail order tickets for the Further gigs for Sept. 18-19-20 in Oakland? Did anyone here receive their tix yet? Gigs are two weeks from today, and though I haven't done mail order since spring tour '95 it seems that I always got my tickets in the mail by the time it was two weeks to the show date. Thanks!
We're definitely considering DSO on 11/21. Do you really think they're worth seeing?
I think some of us have a special fondness for this particular thread - I know it was my home away from home this year from Jan until May :)
Yeah,Its been awhile...`Been busy as hell with the kids and work and everything.....How've YOU been? Get ready....Summer Tour comin' up....I betcha!
I work on a construction site,And Ive been noticing this truck in the parking lot with several Dead stickers on it, So I finally seen the dude who drives it and said"At least SOMEONE around here likes good music"....We started talking shows and it turns out we started seeing the band the same year(88) and weve been to a bunch of the same shows! Gutta Love it!
Anyone bought the scrap-book yet......Is it worth 75!!??!! pretty steep
anyone tape furthur i would love to hear those shows anyone have any info on the new song furthur broke out welcome to the dance i would love to hear pm if you have the shows
DSO is definitely worth seeing. "Inspiration, move me brightly"
now's your chance!
What's it like being married to a rock star? DMB rocks!
Well, Dave's a little manic, but the sex is great :) "Inspiration, move me brightly"

and don't worry, you didn't out me - Just a fun fantasy...a girl can dream, can't she? :) "Inspiration, move me brightly"
Keep on dancin! :) It's all a dream we dreamed One afternoon, long ago
out of the bush for a little while, met up with a little birdie who told me to keep yer eyes and ears open for some NYE shows at the Great American Music Hall in SF. odds are it will be Further rather then the Dead or possibly the DOG and Phriends... at the very least, Jackie Greene will be playing!! ( -: the rumor mill has just started cranking back to life. love and peace.
that'd be a real tough ticket. The GAMH is tiny. Really cool venue, but tiny.
Since DSO and Govt Mule each have NYE plans already I would place my bet on a RatDog/Phriends show like last year. "I've stayed in every blue-light cheap hotel. Can't win for tryin. Dust off those rusty strings just one more time. Gonna make em shine."
yup, the music hall only has about a 5 or 600 standing capacity... Greene is slated to play there 12/30 / 12/31; will some of the boys show up to jam? will the Dog or Phriends set up their own joint gigs back at the Civic Center like last year?? well, well, well, you can never tell. Further is busy until mid-Dec, on the east coast... figure a couple of weeks off for Christmas, and then... hmmmm.... peace.
What is the address of the Great American Music Hall and is it near the Cal Train Station? Have regard for your covenant, because haunts of violence fill the dark places of the land. Do not let the oppressed retreat in disgrace; may the poor and needy praise your name. Psalm 74
Thanks for the info Have regard for your covenant, because haunts of violence fill the dark places of the land. Do not let the oppressed retreat in disgrace; may the poor and needy praise your name. Psalm 74
folks, please keep in mind The Dead or the Dog or Phriends or Further for NYE is a rumour. IF, Lesh or Weir do not schedule their own shows, they MAYBE might, MAYBE show up at the Music Hall and jam with Jackie... well, well, well, you can never tell... peace.
Where do I go to just shoot the breeze back and forth w/other Deadhead hippy freaks?

Hi! I am working on research for a film about DIY music venues, and in the process have stumbled across accounts of the Dead's 1967 "Great Northern Tour." I have read that this was one of the first instances of a major band financing an entire tour themselves. I do not know much more than this, or am I very knowledgeable about the Dead but I thought someone here might be able to answer some questions and shed some light on the history. Is there a board member I should talk to in particular? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Direct message me with any and all insights. THANK YOU -Sam
Is there any action towards a 45th Anniversary in San Francisco? I am a Deadheadfor 40 years. San Francisco girl (using the word "girl") liberally. Please help by e mailing me at The Dead site with info. Please bring some Sunshine into my life. Signed, Sunshine
as I recall from postings elsewhere, Jackie Greene is doing HIS NYE shows at the GAMH those nights.
well well well, you can never tell. right NOW, Jackie is scheduled and tix on sale for the GAMH, 12/30 and 12/31/09 same same last year, Jackie WAS slated for the GAMH around this time, but once Weir and Lesh decided to play the civic center, Jackie cancelled the GAMH and joined in over there. last year, it was, however, around this time that Jackie cancelled the GAMH... so if there is no word from Weir or Lesh in the next couple of weeks, I wouldN't expect any dead / Phriends / DOg shows. the BIG factor this year, , Weir and Lesh are doing the Furthur thing on the east coast until 12/13... so who knows? maybe those boys will just want to take a well deserved rest... Weir got to rest up for the Jamaica thing, too. personally, I think there will NOT be any DOG or Phriends shows, but they MAYBE will show up at the GAMH and jam with jackie. (they did that before some other show a while back...) rumours still flying around... if there is any confirmation one way or the other, please let us know. likewise, I'll do the same. peace.
up at GDTSTOO.com.
would have been nice for comparison purposes, but there is nothing... because of Bill & Mickey??
Thank you dead.net for all the wonderful friends this site has allowed me in 2009<3 Hope to make many, many,many more in 2010...Peace- Moye
Any word on Futher concert summer?
and can be found here or at furthur.net......look out!...there's a spammer above you!!
MWOO ha ha...
These spammers are getting rather bold around here....I thought that post was a slice of spam,I can see how they prey on one's curiosity.Look out all you cats....See you in Calaveras.
they're pretty tiresome lately.
send the flyin' monkeys after 'em...steal their beer, they will
but with our luck (or mine anywhose..) it would be left over green beer from St. Patty's Day and for my money, one thing the world does NOT need right now (or ever for that matter) is a bunch of drunk monkies flying around sick on green beer. Hate it when that happens. The camp on Mem. weekend sounds nice BTW.
and they don't drink it either....they take it to europe and iowa....but i think they should steal the spammers beer anyway..as the spammers do not deserve beer.
but 'll say it any way -- Happy St.Patty's Day!
Hey now! New to the forums, but long to the vibe! We're traveling from DC/VA to CA for this summer's Mountain Air Fest!! Curious to know from other's who have been to this location- the Calaveras County Fairgrounds/Angel's Camp....should we expect it to be as large and as well outfitted as our (east-coast) All Good Festival, for example? Car camping probable if one arrives early? Bountiful food vendors, so as not to worry about cooking? Port-a-johns and pay-showers available? Kind friends? Mellow/safe vibe, despite the huge turnout? We'd love to know as much as we can so we can be well prepared to party! Thanks! ...and see ya'll west-coasters out east for the remainder of the Spring shows!

This thread is pretty old, but I don't know if it's old enough to need wrinkle cream. Besides, wouldn't that just make our monitors look all streaky? Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.
I suppose it says something that wrinkle cream is now considered an indispensable tour accoutrement. Wrinkle cream spam deleted...
Is there a Eugene(Sept./2011) thread anywhere? "...fields of fragile thunder..."
