    Thanks, Twinz. I'm a little bummed, I haven't been to a show in like 14 years and I wanted the next one I see to be summertime.....chill parking lot scene.....lawn seats......you know, the *perfect* scene! Then I saw the boys are playing the Allstate Arena by me.....UGH! That place is a barn with horrible acoustics overall pretty opressive....exactly what I DIDN'T want my return-show to be! So I skipped out on this one cuz it seemed like they were gearing up for a summer tour. I'm hoping i'll be able to catch em at Rothbury in July. Perhaps I'll catch the fall tour, even IF it's indoors :-\",0"

    I suppose it says something that wrinkle cream is now considered an indispensable tour accoutrement. Wrinkle cream spam deleted...

    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.

    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!

I just received my tickets for the Izod Center through GDTS TOO. I paid the price on their website when mail order went out but when I recently checked back the price had gone up from $53 face value to $94 face value. I got upper level tickets. I obviously wanted floor tickets. Has this happened to anyone else with GDTS TOO? Never the less, I am still very grateful for getting tickets at all! Thanks, Julia

Hey folks! I just posted my video from Roseland ballroom on Youtube. It is pretty good- I was in the first row! It is only a 10 minute compilation, but it's pretty cool. Check it out and message me to let me know if you liked it!!! That would make me so happy! xoxo alicina http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ur5_y3--d8E

Hey Alicina, thanks for the footage! It sounds very promising: Warren's playing is suitable melodic. I remember enjoying him at a few ABB shows and Guv't Mule. I like how the Dead's material gets him out of the straight ahead blues into more improvisation - nice ES335 too. The organ sounds great and even the singing is pretty good - go Phil! Love the harmonies. Nice wiggly camera during St.Stephen. Fun! Thanks.

Has anyone heard (or received email) notifications about mail order fulfillment for the Gorge? I haven't heard anything about fulfillment and am working on some travel plans but don't want to make any decisions until the tickets are in hand. Thanks and long live the Dead.

I want to thank each and every one of you for your kind words and prayers. Little Cassidy is home now and doing much better!! You guys are awesome,Thanks again! On a lighter note- I recently moved and the dude who moved out said I could have all the crap in the basement, and among this crap was a bunch of old stereo equiptment-including some nice stuff like Bose speakers and some nice Pioneer tape decks and stuff. So naturally this sparked my interest in all my old Dead tapes(I have a shit-load as im sure alot of you do) anyway,To make a long story longer, I hooked up a bunch of this stuff and dug out my old tapes(oh yeah, on a side note, I plugged in an old CD deck and hit "open" and what was in the deck?-Grateful Dead/So many roads/Disc 3- Call it fate/nice score!) Anyhoo-I was all excited to go through my tapes and pick out some nice old nuggets only to discover that most of my tapes sound like garbage! :-( (muffled,hissy and just plain yucky!!) So, what I want to know is- Does anyone know how I would go about converting my old tapes into crisp,clear listenable(?) CD's??? Is that even possible? Somebody must do it! Those tapes bring back lots of smiles- Id love to hear them again!!!--Once again, Thanks everyone for the good vibes my little angel recieved-Means alot to me-G ♪♪:-)♪♪

Why don't you venture into the Vineyard, where tons of stuff is available. I completely disposed of my cassettes and now have a load of shows that are all digital. The people are all friendly and there are lots of non-dead stuff available too. While it may seem a bit confusing at first, once you get the hang of it, it is great. I think there is an explanation on how it works in the topic "New Vines 2009." Hope to see you in there. "One watch by night, one watch by day If you get confused, listen to the music play"

Here is an clip from my latest GDTS TOO update on 4/1/09: Thursday, May 14, 2009 at Shoreline Amphitheatre In Mountain View, CA. We will process this show the next couple of weeks. Saturday, May 16, 2009 at The Gorge in Quincy, WA with special guest Allman Brothers Band and The Doobie Brothers. We will processes this show in the next couple of weeks. They have already sent my ticket for Denver and my 1st Shoreline both of which are incredible seats!!! Gratefultwinz I am glad to hear your lil' one is doing better! It is a sad thing when my grandkids get sick. My youngest one just lost her first tooth - she is just too proud to show it to you - LOL! I luvs munchkins with all my heart and soul - I luv to spoil them too! AHH YES the joys of bein' a grandparent! Grandchildren and Grandparents we have a common enemy - LOL! I am working on getting my self well today - I tried going back to work yesterday which did not go very well. I unexpectedly sat down - only because there was a chair available, other wise I would have hit the floor. I'm not able to eat much which means I've got low blood sugars. I am still tryin' to adjust my insulin shots - the pharmacist suggested I drink pedialyte - nasty stuff no wonder kids don't like it. Thankfully no more problems with my heart or the turbo squirts. yeah like you folks really wanna hear all the details. Peace and positive vibes to each of you.... We're gonna pitch a ball Down to the union hall We're gonna romp and stomp till midnight We're gonna fuss and fight till daylight We're gonna pitch a wang dang doodle all night long Shine On!

So glad to hear your daughters feeling better. Sweet score on the equipment in your basement. You can convert tapes to CDs and adjust the music levels to a certain extent. My dad does this alot on his old country musis tapes and some of my old tapes i've had for years. Also my friend, I e-mailed you with some pictures to use on your user ID. Enjoy!! Peace- Moye

First St. Stephen I hope you feeling better, I've read the last day or so of posts and you need to get better - there's a tour coming up! Second, GratefulTwinz, I'm glad to hear the little one is better as well, I have 2 little ones and it's so heartbreakign when they're sick. ANd last but not least, I picked up my first "for fun" read since graduate school - it's Phil's book Searching for the Sound and let me tell you, I"m loving it! I'm so excited for the upcoming shows, and just giddy all around. Anyway, just had to share my happy thoughts with my fellow friends here. I have come to think of this site as a home away from home with so many friends and interesting stories on every page. Okay enough rambling, have a grate day everyone! Can't wait for MAY!!!! ~Tam

Gearing up for 5 Dead shows in 8 days(with a BRUCE show in between.) How sweet it is. Peace and Love.

I am an insatiable reader who just joined the dead family in 2004, but I loved Searching for the Sound. I felt like I got to meet the family and really understand all the dynamics behind the band. Glad to hear you're loving it too! Crickets and cicadas sing, a rare and different tune, Terrapin Station.

I went out to the parking lot this morning and somebody had stuck one long stemmed red rose into the snow in front of my car. I'll take it as a sign of good things to come very soon! Still hoping for 10,000 roses to fall from the rafters as the boys open up with Midnight Hour in Albany. ~Same old friends the wind & rain We'll see summer come again~ Hey Sway, Ain't no time to hate! Scalpers will get what is coming to them...

I am a travelling Head, currently in CT and I need a Miracle.No Tix, no car, little money, and a brother that needs the same. I hope miracles will happen as they always have for me and a kind friend I haven't met yet may be able to help this Head into the Greensboro show and get him a ride.

I am thinking about surprising my hubby and adding the Gorge onto our list of shows to see this tour since it falls on our anniversary. Would be a sweet and memorable gift. We would be flying in from the East coast. At the risk of sounding clueless - is Seattle the best hub to use? Any info on where to stay or other things to do while there would be terrific. (also thinking about renting an RV... Cheers:)

I live in Tempe, AZ and looking to see if anyone in the Phoenix area is going to CO and then CA for the 3 shows? A friend of mine suggested posting on here, my next option is to take a bus, but really don't want to do that, I would like to bring my boo (my doggy), I'm not sure if the bus will let me bring her. Please contact me if anyone has any ideas or thoughts... Kat Johnson

What's the deal w/the Thread Heads thing in Worcester(Wiisttaa) anyway? I know they want everyone to make Dead related quilts ro welcome the band(Which is a very cool idea(BTW) But where are they going to be displayed? It would be cool if they hung them all out in the hallways for all to see!:-) P.S. Bob Weir, If your reading this please play Cassidy/Deal sunday night. Thank-you,George

I am also interested in any information about lots near DCU. I'm driving up from New Jersey for the 4/18 show and would really like to revel in a full-day experience. Looking on the DCU Center website is making me worry that it is all garage (not tailgate friendly) parking. Twinz, if I find anything out about the pre-show/lot situation I'll be sure to share the word on this board. See you in Worcester. Peace
