I had to try and picture it in my head since I don't have a copy of The Grateful Dead Movie with me.

heyman, yeah, true. We gotta figure out what to do about the west coast scene...namely Monterey and SF, in that

Shoreline wasn't bad at all except for the cops. Don't know where this "violent" element is coming from, but it SUCKS!

Used to be back in the day that Shakedown was a peaceful place, a community.

Just wondering what an "occupy" Shakedown would look like? Would it be a "taking back" of Shakedown from the

parasites? Is that too harsh a term? Too bad, it's what they are!!!

Here's hoping for a healthy, safe and fun scene this summer and fall. I think the elders among us need to step it up and do our part to show everyone the way it used to be.

hell yea man, I didn't watch the video yet but Bethel 2011 was one of the best times I ever had at a show... including the pre/post show and everything.

Yes, that screen was a nice digital homage to the 'amusements' of the early years....

Yeah, that video wall was very nice, but it costs a very pretty penny

In the late 1980s Robert Hunter wrote a letter to Dead Heads. Here is a small part of that letter.
There is no blanket solution to the problems caused by increasing demand and there is no turning back...
Frankly we don't intend to hand over a big portion of the bread we need to run this operation to organized crime. This is no joke, there are some big time heavies muscling in. Follow the cigar smoke! Hence we are forced into a tighter structuring of merchandising. What began as a spontaneous vagabond marketplace has devolved into a competitive and obnoxious full scale illegal rip off, squeezing out the gypsy Deadheads and offering violence to rival merchandisers. We intend to step on it hard!
