Our fine friends over at Wines That Rock are hoping to "bring out the Dead" all November long and it shouldn't be too hard since they're giving away 15 2013 Dave's Picks Subscriptions and over 18 minutes of "unreleased" Grateful Dead Tracks! Enter to win here.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum will host a special evening presentation in conjunction with its latest special exhibit, Grateful Dead: The Long, Strange Trip, with Grateful Dead archivist David Lemieux on Friday, November 9 at 7 p.m.
Something very cool is happening in Marin County. At Bob Weir’s TRI Studios and Phil Lesh’s Terrapin Crossroads—a few miles apart in San Rafael—a wave of new, younger musicians has been hooking up with the old guard and reimagining the GD’s repertoire in new and exciting ways.
Much has been made about how, even more than usual, this year’s Gathering of the Vibes in Bridgeport, Connecticut is a Grateful Dead family event, as it features appearances by Phil Lesh & Friends, the duo of Bob Weir and Bruce Hornsby with special guest Branford Marsalis, the Mickey Hart Band and Bill Kreutzmann’s 7 Walkers. Wish I could be there!
Shall we go, you and I, while we can to Record Store Day on April 21st? Our very special "Dark Star" 5/4/72, Olympia Theatre, Paris, France 180-gram 12" vinyl release features one of the longest versions of the song in Dead history, clocking in at over 40 minutes!
The Mickey Hart Band have released their first single, "Slow Joe Rain", off of Mysterium Tremendum, due out April 10th. Fans can download the track for FREE at Mickeyhart.net/download. This is the first taste the world gets to hear of Hart sonifying the Universe and putting it down on record with his new band.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum is proud to present a major exhibition devoted to a truly unique American rock and roll band, Grateful Dead: The Long, Strange Trip. The exhibit will open on Thursday, April 12, as a part of the 2012 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Week events.
What a wonderful month it's been, sharing our love of the Grateful Dead through song and video! We applaud all the hard work and effort that you, the fans, put into the DEAD COVERS PROJECT, and we hope you'll continue to watch and support all the amazing participant videos on YouTube until we fire up the DEAD COVERS PROJECT again next February.
Throughout the month of April, we'll be shining our lovelight on a handful of artists that really made the grade. You'll get to know each of these five artists and find out just what made them connect with the Dead in our exclusive DEAD COVERS PROJECT profiles, but for now we'd simply like to congratulate the following participants (in no particular order)...
In the Grateful Dead days, it was always fun to see the band after they hadn’t played for a few weeks, because even inveterate set list analysts were hard-pressed to predict what they might play the first night back, and whatever rotational habits they might have gotten into during a tour had similarly been obliterated. It was a clean slate.
On January 12, a glittering cavalcade of Bay Area jam band stars will gather for a special one-of-a-kind benefit show at Slim’s nightclub in SF to honor the memory of the late roadie Steve Block and to raise money for Sweet Relief, a wonderful non-profit organization
It seems as though there’s always something to talk about in Mickey Hart’s universe. The Busy One has been working in the studio on an album with his dynamic new band, and at the end of November will embark on a big West and Midwest tour with the group.
Look for the the 7 Walkers, featuring Bill Kreutzmann, guitarist Papa Mali, multi-instrumentalist Matt Hubbard (Willie Nelson, Fastball), and legendary New Orleans bass man George Porter Jr. (The Meters, Funky Meters) in a city near you this Fall.
From Captain Trips to the Great Pyramid of Giza to Terrapin Station... If you think you know everything about The Dead, then we’ve got a challenge for you. We’re lightening things up this summer with a bit of Grateful Dead trivia. Each day we’ll post a new question and the previous day’s answer under The Latest. Get started here.

We are helping to get life-saving aid to children in the Horn of Africa. Watch this video from @UNICEFUSA on how our efforts during the Month of Giving for The George Harrison Fund for UNICEF have helped and what we can do to save children’s lives.
Here is a little vine I'd like to offer up in light of the recent vindex upgrade (thanks again CB). Not much 83 on there and 2 of these were never vined and the 9/8/83 show disappeared so might as well put this whole run out there.
Mickey Hart has discovered the rhythm of the America’s Cup.
“This is multi-dimensional rhythm machine,” Hart said after an exhilarating sail as a guest racer on board an AC45 with Russell Coutts and the ORACLE Racing team today. “The sails, the boat, the current, the wind, the integration of the sailors. These guys are rhythm masters.
Director Louie Psihoyos and marine mammal specialist Ric O'Barry will present and discuss a screening of their 2010 Academy Award-winning documentary The Cove, along with a special live performance by the Grateful Dead's Bob Weir, in an evening that benefits Save Japan Dolphins, a project of Earth Island Institute.
Hi Can anyone tell me if this record for the movie sound track. It was my Dad that died i don't have the album cover. I can't find anything about it on the net. I can only assume its the sounds track to the movie but I would like to know for sure if anyone out there knows I would be very grateful if you could tell me. Thank you
The second set jam this night is unique both in terms of the tour and the greater Grateful Dead history, featuring three three Garcia-sung songs in a row: "Uncle John's Band>Wharf Rat>Dark Star." All three are top notch, and "Wharf Rat" was quite a rarity on this tour, so this is a nice treat.
This covers 3 months but is the smallest of the 5 Parts. I'll add some extra filler for this one to make up for it.
The ! means that they are extra good shows as rated by the Admins of Workingmans tracker.
This vine consists of the Early 69 Part 1 shows as well as some others from March and the 1/18 Playboy After Dark segment. The ! means that they are extra good shows as rated by the Admins of Workingmans tracker.
Grateful Dead drummer Bill Kreutzmann’s latest musical project is 7 Walkers. He and the entire group including Papa Mali, George Porter Jr and Matt Hubbard stop by the Grateful Dead Channel studios to perform live and chat with host Gary Lambert during this special 1-hour broadcast!
May be hard to see this small, but, Phil, Bob, Mickey, Jerry, and I believe, Vince, are all visible in my copy. My last time getting the opportunity to shoot a picture of Jerry, unbeknownst to me, and this is what I settle for. I thought that though Jerry may wobble, he wouldn't fall down. I am only now beginning to understand how old his body may have been getting. Miss you Jerry.
So over in "If You're Going to San Francisco," Cosmicbadger was telling the harrowing tale of a near-death experience while hitchhiking in Northern California. One thing led to another, and now we've got this topic.
A one stop shop for all the winter tour shows including Phil's 70th birthday bash in San Francisco. 24 bit versions of a couple of the shows also included in fact the 2/22 show is only in 24b format and if there is interest in this format I can add more to the vine. Anyways this is just an easy way to get the whole tour. Summer tour is coming up!
Furthur, featuring Bob Weir and Phil Lesh, will be playing the Nateva Music Festival in Oxford, Maine, on July 2, 3, 4, 2010, exactly 22 years since their last appearance in Oxford, Maine with the Grateful Dead. For more information, go to www.natevafestival.com.
Penn State, The Dead, Oct. 13, 2008, and a beautiful sunset over the stadium, complete with sundogs, kissing the skyline. Always weird weather anomalies, when we all get together, and in tune. Strange how that works?
If you're in Chicago for The Dead shows, be sure to catch this exhibit right across the street from Allstate Arena!
The exhibit will feature limited-edition works created by Bill Kreutzmann and rare signed work by Jerry Garcia. It also includes photography of the Grateful Dead chronicling their 30 year career by Herb Greene and Baron Wolman, plus poster art by Richard Biffle.
The Denver Art Museum takes a deeper look into the experimental art of the late 1960s, its message and its meaning, with their new exhibit The Psychedelic Experience: Rock Posters from the San Francisco Bay Area, 1965-71.

Totally overcome with grief, I drew this picture of Jerry the day after he passed away. I'm not a very good artist but I am proud of this little sketch. I put my love for him into it and I will always remember those extremely sad days after his passing. Where I was standing the moment I heard the news, how depressed we all became as a family.
