Wife got me into the Dead a few years ago. She's been into them forever. I never really "got it," although I've always been super into Floyd, Zeppelin, classic psych stuff. Never really had the right intro, I guess.

It really clicked for me after watching the Amazon series on them when that came out, then it was game over. Just picked up the Europe '72 vinyl the other day.

Hope to see Dead & Company one of these days. We used to go watch Uncle John's Band at Skipper's in Tampa fairly often. Since moving to Brooklyn, the Brooklyn Bowl has had a some solid cover bands through. Grateful Shred was super good.

Grateful Dead really ain't anything like the other classic bands  ;)

if you're gonna see Dead & Co, make sure you get reeeeeeal high/tripped out and it will be better. If you're gonna do it, head upstate to Watkins Glen or Spac or Darien for the dopest experience. City shows are sick too though, but I think having a place to dance for the first show can be real nice. I won't paint your masterpiece though. Just get as high as possible, like so it looks mystical and shit. You want those dready wooks looking like cavemen and shit.

JRAD and DSO, although not home to the OG players, might be more in line with the Europe 72 vibe you're into. Catch Phil and the Terrapin Family Band if you can too. Wolf Bro's is kinda meh.

I like some Dead songs.

Is there some kind of beef going on between former members?

why do you ask about a beef? Phil Lesh was playing separate from, Bobby, Mickey, and Billy, but the only beef I've seen is between newbs you think John Mayer is better than Jerry and those who know what's up :o

Not sure, thought I heard from my deadhead friends who used to go to shows at the Meadowlands that there was some kind of something going on with how they felt about Phil (not talking about "let Phil sing").  Anyway, glad there's no beef.

And that is just nuts that anyone would say John Mayer is better than Jerry.  Are you serious?

there's always stories about why Phil isn't playing with Dead and Company. Some people argue that it's about personalities. Others, probably more correctly, attribute it to Phil's age, health, and desire to do whatever he wants rather than tour with D&C. Up til recently, he owned a restaurant/venue called Terrapin Crossroads and was able to play there pretty often with friends and the band with his kid. Really though, who knows man.

I saw Phil's terrapin family band at Oregon Country Fair (site of Veneta 8/27/72/sunshine daydream show) back in 2019 and it was dope. Didn't expect it to be the last show I saw since Covid, but anyways, go see Phil's band.

Billy & the Kids is a sick band, Billy Strings and Billy Kreutzman.... wheweee, absolute heater shows.

JRAD is pretty good, DSO is good.

Dead & Co, is eh, I don't know man. I'm a head. Grateful Dead music is my hymnal music. So, I'm gonna get what I can get, but D&C, after the first 5 shows, I'm just not feeling as much magic with them. The crowd is different. Marketing is more prevalent and corporate, etc. If you can get in, go see em, but it's not as good as the other post Jerry incarnations.

I thought about seeing them when they were at the Capitol.  Might check them out when they come around.  How many shows have you been too roughly?

I always smile when this comes up on my playlist:

I had halloween tix at the Cap in 2019, maybe 2018... But I had to get back to CA for an emergency =(

I'm only 36, so I never got to see Garcia, but I've been going to shows since '02. Couldn't really tell you how many, but with The Other Ones (which imo was the best post Jerry incarnation), the Dead, and Further, excluding the first 2 years of Dead and Company, I've generally gotten at least a few each year. No D&C last year, but the years prior we did the Gorge and Eugene. West Coast venues are really spread far apart and with ticket prices being what they are, a run of 5 shows is gonna cost well over a grand. I'm too old to be hustling on the lot anymore, so it's what it is. But it used to be really easy to flip a zip in slices in under an hour and pay for tickets, gas, food, balloons, etc. Also, from my home to the Bay Area is at least 6 hours in the car. To Eugene it's 6 hrs. To the Gorge it's at least 13 hours. Thankfully, there's some legit bands that stop in and play pretty often! Still haven't been to a show in 2 years though!!!!

There have been years when we might do a run for a week or 10 days. Then all the GD family bands- Ratdog, Phil and Friends, JGB, DSO, cover bands etc. When I was living in New England, it was pretty easy to hit a bunch of shows in a row.

Phish is worth seeing if you have any inkling of interest. I haven't seen them in a long time but what I hear is some of the best Phish I've heard since I started seeing them in 03. Dose up and get down =)

If the Bobby & Phil duo plays again, try to get a night because they were good. I got 2 nights at Radio City and one at the Wang in Boston. Pretty special shows, for sure. I love the old theaters.

Anything with John Kadlecik is going to be sick. A lot of people seem to dig Grateful Shred.

I like all of their music, but my favorite era and most listened to is 69-72 live shows. Dick's picks 26, 16, 11, 8, 4, and 2 all come to mind as an introduction for that era.
No wonder Gifted Hater hates this place.

08/27/72 is my favorite

Many call 5/7, 5/8, 5/9 1977 the best shows, and they're good, for sure.

But 8/27/72 at veneta is exceptional. Its it's got components of jazzier dead, rock n roll dead, and some of the 60s bluesy dead on there, andddd, its psychedelic as fuck without being unbearable at all. The show is played as a fundraiser on Kesey family farm (merry pranksters).

what show did you catch? I think I'm all set with dead and company as long as Mayer's still playing. musics slow and the scene is not quite my thing.

Phil's band/bands are really hot right now. I'm bummed to have missed him so far this summer. Pretty crazy he opted to play a shitty festival in marshfield mass rather than Oregon country fair again, but so it goes.

thinking about trying to get down to Days Between on the Eel next month, get some DSO, Melvin & JGB, stu Allen etc

Phish is hot right now too, man. fuckin a. what shows are you gonna hit?

Heyyy my first post on here, just saying whattup to the deadhead skaters, and thanks to my lady for getting me into them after years and years of me writing them off.  All it took was a beautiful road trip through Vermont and Blues for Allah.  It was just exactly perfect.
