deadheads truly exist in almost all walks of life therefore there are many many rich deadheads

yeah, true — just seems crazy the amount of cash some people must be dropping on the endless reissues, various shows, cherry garcia in bulk ...

Legal Weed Sales
Tech Bros.

I saw Phish at the Gorge in Washington State a couple years ago and was really surprised at how many BMWs / Mercedes / Lexuses there were waiting in line to get in, plus a non trivial number of really, really nice VW busses that had obviously been restored.

I'm sure there were a ton of tech bros there and I overheard a lot of conversations and networking about the weed business - people talking about their stores, testing labs, grow ops, banking/money laundering ventures, etc.

isn't al gore a deadhead?

also: deadheads are _old_. lotta broke-ass olds, of course, but more old people with money than young people with money.

When Jerry died there were TV obits focused on Wall St. bankers crying in the streets. They’ve been a yuppie band since the 80s

Out on the road today I saw a Deadhead sticker on a Cadillac.
A little voice inside my head said:
"Don't look back, you can never look back."
I thought I knew what love was.
What did I know?
Those days are gone forever.
I should just let 'em go, but

About a year ago, I randomly caught the 7/4/81 Austin TX set playing on the SiriusXM Grateful Dead Channel; it had the most crackling "China Cat" I've ever heard!

(The last Dead thing I bought was the 2-disc Cornell 5/8/77 set... it lived up to the hype, but I had become kinda burned out on the SiriusXM channel at that point, so I’ve only played it a few times.)

ANTHEM OF THE SUN (50TH ANNIVERSARY DELUXE EDITION)
2-CD Apple Lossless HD FLAC

"This is one the most thrilling albums the Grateful Dead ever produced, mixing portions of live recordings from the first six months of Mickey's tenure with the band, along with studio experimentations that would hint at where the Dead would go when they started recording to 16-track tape the following year. The 1971 remix, produced in order to make the album more accessible to the newer fans who were brought on board with WORKINGMAN'S DEAD and AMERICAN BEAUTY, has been the most commonly heard version for the past 45+ years. However, having this side-by-side with the original 1968 mix demonstrates countless differences, with the original mix being more primal, psychedelic, and experimental. Add to this the first extant live recording featuring Mickey as a member of the Grateful Dead, and you have a very special release in every way.” - David Lemieux

We're continuing our 50th anniversary reissue series with ANTHEM OF THE SUN: 50th ANNIVERSARY DELUXE EDITION, due July 13th. Released 50 years after its anniversary date, this two-disc deluxe version features a double dose of the original album - one fully remastered from the original 1968 mix and the other remastered from the more well-known 1971 mix - as well as a bonus disc of a previously unreleased complete live show recorded on October 22, 1967 at Winterland in San Francisco, CA. Newly remastered by Jeffrey Norman, this is the first known recording of the Grateful Dead with Mickey Hart, who joined the band in September 1967. The first run will come with a special lenticular of the cover.
Do not stop on the tracks, grab a copy while you can!

I don't have either mix, so I should get this, right?

four weeks pass...

I wouldn't call myself a head but this mix seems pretty great to me: live recordings from 93-94 featuring jazz players with the Dead - Ornette on four tracks + Branford Marsalis, David Murray, Ken Nordine. Five versions of "Space" + Ornette on "That's It for the Other One" (probably my favourite GD song of what I know)

I tried "HAI!" listening to "HAI!" Murray on an "Estimated Prophet," and while "HAI!" he sounded "HAI!" surprisingly good "HAI!" with them, there were "HAI!" all these really "HAI!" annoying and distracting "HAI!" vocal interjec"HAI!"tions from Weir.

I watched the Dead doc on Amazon again, but lord help me some of the deadheads, Steve Silberman's whole "dead shows were like a MANDALA" thing is so cringey (even tho he seems like a really good dude overall) but man...

if the silly deadhead stuff bothers you, stay far away from Dead and Co shows. Everyone at the show is super old and trying hard to do that same silly deadhead stuff and is hasn't aged well.

i will definitely stay far away!

btw i went to a dead & co show last week. lol. it was pretty fun. i was amazed by how well weir's voice and guitar playing have held up over the years. mayer was competent and mostly unobtrusive, occasionally annoying, occasionally pretty good. listening to those vintage shows though, damn, phil is so much a part of what i love about this band (garcia obv too but that goes without saying) and i missed his presence a lot the other night. also the setlist was okay, a lot upbeat rockers that i don't care about. he's gone was good but i thought they were gonna go into truckin with it and i was so excited but then they didn't so it was kind of a let down. they closed with knockin on heaven's door and it was pretty good. drums / space definitely felt a little too orchestrated but it was fun nonetheless, i laid on the grassy lawn and just looked up at the stars and had a nice experience.

deadhead scene was... idk man. honestly i am happy to say i'm a "deadhead" and i love seeing other deadheads out in the wild - if i see i steal my face sticker on a car i'll chat or give a thumbs up - but being in that crowd my reaction was a little more negative. too many drunks imo

i went to see them and not having to see mayer's goony guitar faces really helped him not stand out like a sore thumb xp

how did you like the show?

The Desus & Mero Chain (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Thursday, 28 June 2018 14:54 (four months ago) Permalink

it was fun! nothing revelatory or life changing but definitely better than i expected. justin vernon did some songs with them which incensed the online deadheads for days, which i found hilarious because it makes just about as much sense to have him up there as it does to have john fucking mayer. for a band so rich in lore, etc i'm glad i could be there for a night of legendary infamy :)

global tetrahedron, Thursday, 28 June 2018 14:59 (four months ago) Permalink

a friend is trying to convince me to go to a dead and co show in boulder next month, but i am resisting. mainly i just don't want to stand in the sun for 5 hours. also mayer.
i do want to read that new book about the post-Jerry years that just came out, should have some juicy stuff in it.

honestly tho there is a local dead cover band here that is ace and i enjoy their shows more than i enjoyed the dead & co

marcos, Thursday, 28 June 2018 15:03 (four months ago) Permalink

I've contemplated seeing Dead & Co, but really cannot get past Mayer, unobtrusive though he may be. And Marcos OTM re: Phil. If Phil joined Dead & Co., and if Ned Lagin tagged along and a "Seastones" could be expected at every show, yeah, I'd go see them.

Montgomery Burns' Jazz (Tarfumes The Escape Goat), Thursday, 28 June 2018 15:12 (four months ago) Permalink

...and then they ditched everyone and it was just Lesh and Lagin doing Seastones

The Desus & Mero Chain (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Thursday, 28 June 2018 16:10 (four months ago) Permalink

my wife shamed me into two Dead and Co shows. First was on a very nice summer night last year, outdoor show, excellent seats way up front. much more fun than I expected.

second was in a big indoor hockey arena and the sound sucked. that said, they had tightened things up, esp the second set, which made for a better product in some ways.

in both cases, the music was incredibly slow even by their standards. bertha in particular was a slog. can't see how an uninitiated could have stayed awake. loved hearing bobby's guitar high in the mix and he seemed to be rising to the occasion. mayer provided the energy and adequate guitar playing and the bass guy helped alot. keyboard guy seemed a little too dead-cover-band for the role.

protip: get there an hour late and skip a big chunk of the first set. makes the night go by much faster

flappy bird, Thursday, 28 June 2018 18:28 (four months ago) Permalink

Mayer is unapologetic about being a bro asshole, Vernon is a shy violet with no spine. Mayer's milquetoast brand isn't that much more 'straight' or normcore or whatever than whatever Bon Iver is up to.
