The Grateful Dead Movie 40th Anniversary
Fan Meet-Up


On 4/20, meet up with friends and fellow Dead Heads in cinemas nationwide for a Grateful gathering to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the original Grateful Dead documentary, The Grateful Dead Movie. Co-directed by Jerry Garcia and Leon Gast, this concert film features live performances from the October 1974 5-night run at San Francisco’s iconic Winterland held during the band’s so-called “retirement” prior to taking a two-year sabbatical. Performances include “U.S. Blues,” “One More Saturday Night,” “Casey Jones,” “Playing in the Band” and “Sugar Magnolia,” among other Dead classics. Before the show, audiences will get exclusive access to a special mini-documentary featuring fans reminiscing about the most famous Grateful Dead show of all time, which took place 40 years ago, on May 8, 1977, at Barton Hall at Cornell University.

According to Rolling Stone, "an exclusive excerpt from the upcoming authorized Dead documentary Long Strange Trip will also screen during the Meet-Up."

I'll be seeing in the glamorous vacation destination city of Lowell, MA :shock:

On the flip side if any in our group of 10 needs any supplies that shouldn't be to difficult to come by :roll:

Was unsure if I'd make it since it conflicts with the LeBron and Kyrie Show. But, as Mrs. Colors pointed out, that's what dvr's are for. The Dead movie night has been a great kickoff to the summer concert season for the past couple of years, so we're should be there. "ST. STEPHEN!!!!!"

I'm thinking I may just pop the blue ray in.... :bears2
I went walking out last summer
Trying to find a breath of air
I went walking on the mountain
A friend had told me I'd find you there
