Ratdog, Phil and Friends, Jackie Greene, and a few thousand of their closest friends...
to see any of you folks that were coming out for the shows. Maybe we could meet for breakfast like we used to do back in the '80s... I am not going to the shows myself; my stamina for NYE ran out before we lost Jer and I'm EVEN OLDER now. But it would be swell to have a gathering and actually meet.
well Marye, I bet I'm older than you ! Did you know the show starts at 6 PM..Tailored just for us !! Happy Holidays !Carla
wish that I was gonna be there in anything more than spirit!! So please thoughs that do go lose your ass for me!!!!!
tix still available through ticketmaster http://www.ticketmaster.com/venue/229433 mail order through GDTS is over. I think all tix are equal, all GA, but not sure. the ones through ticketpriceblaster say level one general admission. Phil Lesh, Bob Weir & Ratdog Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, San Francisco, CA Wed, Dec 31, 2008 06:00 PM Your Ticket(s) Section Description GENADM PRICE LEVEL 1 GENERAL ADMISSION TICKET Type Full Price Ticket Ticket PriceUS $65.00 Convenience ChargeUS $11.75 then whatever bullshit shipping will call charges on top of that. even so, it IS a lot of entertainment for 75-80$ man oh man, I am working on trying to make this happen for us. peace.
by the by, I was pretty surprised that tix were still available. it is only like 7,000 in that place. hopefully the tix will still be available if/when I finally get my shit (and cash) together... peace.
and yet, at this point that convenience charge is probably keeping somebody employed. Somebody like those nice ladies in the ticket office at Penn State. Or at least I'd like to think so.
back in the days of the Henry J., we used to converge at Mama's Royal Cafe in Oakland for epic breakfast gatherings. Not EARLY breakfast, mind you, but certainly excellent breakfast. (Mama's Royal Cafe is the best--and in my neighborhood too!) I'd certainly be willing to BART across the Bay for a gathering in SF, though.
maybe Phil and Bobby could donate a pair of New Year's tickets to Deadnet and we can have a contest where you put up a riddle about the Grateful Dead and the first person to post the correct answer wins!
marye said: "couldn't agree more...and yet, at this point that convenience charge is probably keeping somebody employed." With the electronic ticketing a lot of the time there's not even a human licking an envelope after the tickets go in. Don't know if that's the case here. Show me a breakdown of what that "convenience charge" covers and I might agree, but I'm betting the amount that goes to "those nice ladies" isn't a tenth of it, and my budget is as tight as anybody else's. With airlines charging extra for luggage (!) and all the other "convenience charges" that show up on any kinda trip anymore having the price of a ticket bumped up 15 - 20% for somebody's "convenience" just adds insult to injury. I figure it just makes it "convenient" for some guy who already makes way too much money make the payment on his Hummer. ********************************************* I have a sigfile! --> www.kindveggieburritos.com *********************************************
of convenience charges either, but they've been with us since the days I bought a ticket to see the Beatles at the Hollywood Bowl ($3.50. For the ticket!!!), and certainly since the days of Ticketron and BASS. Avoiding them, of course, is the good thing about GDTSTOO. But hey, our own David Gans used to work on computers for BASS back in the day, so some of the convenience charges du jour of the period must have gone to him!
I'm in pacific northwest and I'm looking for riders to the show and would love to join others for a breakfast gathering. Terry
am in the northwest but i cant afford to go tho i'll be more than willing to wave and say stuff like " have a safe trip" and " drive carefully ". damn.....i can get there driving in 12 hrs too!!
just couldnt shake off the jet lag to be organized about this... too bad; though. fucking grate shows though!!
maybe we'll catch you this spring...
west of the mississippi river is extremely doubtful for us this tour, but you never know, got my thumb all polished up. I was pre-planning / hoping for a summer tour of the smaller venues like in '04, didn't see this Spring arena thing coming. peace.
