PiercingMetal Thoughts: In the past I’ve mentioned my generally “casual” appreciation of the music of the Grateful Dead and that’s not changed since the last time around. As I’ve said I learned to appreciate what they were all about over the years. Since I love the live concert scene, I am going to look into seeing one of the NYC shows to cross it off my bucket list. My friends who love them remain diehards and that is always awesome to find happening. I wonder what you ardent Grateful Dead fans think of this project and if you are making plans to come out and see them on one of these dates. You can let me know down in the comments section below. Until next time.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Though I was never the biggest Grateful Dead fan when I was growing up, as the years went on I learned to appreciate what they were all about. My friends loved them and were diehards to the point of some of them following a tour to a couple of destinations which I always admired. It’s something else to inspire that level of fandom in a person. I’d love to catch the band during one of their NYC stops in this incarnation because I have heard good things about this no longer new project that keeps the memories alive and on the stage. At the time of this writing I have only seen clips of the band performing thanks to the stuff people are posting on YouTube and I wonder what you ardent Grateful Dead fans think of this project and if you are making plans to come out and see them on one of these dates. You can let me know down in the comments section below. Until next time.

Fathom Events Presents “The Grateful Dead Movie” For One Night Only On 4/20

The fine folks at Fathom Events are at it again with something special and their one night only showing of the 1977 classic “The Grateful Dead Movie”. The film will be 40 years old later this year and you can learn more about this event down below. I’ve even got the promotional trailer for you to make sure all the bases are covered. Check it out.

The Press Release:
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.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Though I’ve never seen the film as a whole, I am pretty sure that I have seen clips from this in various documentaries that have aired over the years. In 1977 I was only getting myself into my heavier music like KISS and whatever else was loud on WNEW radio station. I have to see if I am free to attend this movie on 4/20 since April is proving to be a very busy month for me but I wonder what you readers think about this one. Maybe I will try to get a contest going as well since I have done some of these for Fathom Events over the last few months. Those who don’t want to miss out on a ticket for this can check out THIS LINK to get a spot straight away.

Follow the activities of the members of the Grateful Dead care of their official link below and learn about the film via its Wikipedia entry. I’ve also embedded a link to the Blu-ray on Amazon.com

The Dead and Company Announce Summer 2017 Dates

I guess the end of Fall is a little early to announce summer tour dates for the coming year but that is what we have to discuss at the moment as the group Dead and Company has recently announced their Summer 2017 dates. Actually if you are going to be a stickler about it, the tour begins at the end of Spring and continues on into the early weeks of the hopefully hot months.

The Press Release: (kinda sorta)
The Dead and Company, a band fronted by John Mayer and three founding members of the Grateful Dead, will return again next year and just the other day have announced a five week tour of the United States. As you see listed below, this run will be only about “19” dates and begin at Las Vegas before it ends with two nights at Chicago’s Wrigley Field. The band began their own new musical adventure at the famed Madison Square Garden in October 2015 showcasing a continuation of the Grateful Dead legacy only a few short months after the legendary band performed the last of their “Fare Thee Well” concerts. The full band lineup is John Mayer (vocals and lead guitar), Bob Weir (guitar and vocals) with drummers Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann. The sound is completed by Oteil Burbridge (bass) and Jeff Chimenti (keyboards). The two musicians originally hail from The Allman Brothers Band and RatDog respectively. I’ve culled together the dates and venues in the cities that they will be visiting. Time to mark down your calendars if you are a fan of this music.
