LOL@bokb

I sometimes think the same thing, i.e. jamming my iPod with a shit-eating grin, dancing up the aisles of my neighborhood supermarket. No doubt, I get more than a few double-takes.

I LOVE this band, and I, too, love that it's NOW!!

"We are Furthur". I've kind of felt that too. Well said. Thanks. : )
I can't come down, it's plain to see.
I can't come down, I've been set free.

as Hunter said at the "family reuniun thing" at alpine,(to the crowd), " you are the grateful dead now, we are just the other ones."
same could be said of furthur. if they werent kickin ass, playin relevent music, people wouldnt go see em. well maybe east coasters. lol just jokin. but for real, the audience is a HUGE part of the show, so please people, be kind, and hope the boys keep on truckin, cause id dont like phiish or widespread or string cheese that much. i go see em, i have fun. but its like the difference between a keg-party and an acid test.

Dancing on the floor at the Broomfield shows in Colorado this February was incredible. All the people dancing consciously together, making eye contact and beaming smiles at each other, hugging each other...this scene, this band, and this music really do create a magical, loving, atmosphere for people to connect and feel alive, to feel our best. I am very grateful and gitty that THIS is happening.

Love to hear that Shake. Wish I was there.

I live for when the music takes over. I love when you see some crazy dancer... and they look up lock eye's and they are clear (high maybe) but clear. Not Fuck'd.

I like when it get's really good and everyone starts looking like we practice together.

Like we are professionals--- like we do this for a living.

I hope Futhur play more GA venues at least have a GA area (Not Lawn). We are much better at sorting our own energies naturally than having positions assigned to us. And it keeps the scumbag brokers for gentrifying all the prime real estate with high prices.

On the floor in Pittsburgh after the set break. Dude in front of us asks if we saw his jacket??? We saw all sorts of things BUT his jacket. Then his friend spots it many rows over "walking" away!!! Like a super hero he ran across the tops of "HEADS"! Retrieved his jacket to our cheers !! His whiskey was in that jacket!!

55th and 5th Momofuko. David Cheng is a ponce---- but the milk is from Milk Thistle and that is the goods. Oh and the Ruben Croissant is outrageous--- Rye Croissant--- House Made Pastrami---- House Made Sauerkraut---- and Russian Dressing.

I digress.

Loving the stories must be a million more.

Here's another of mine (Pre Furthurband)

5 Nights Red Rocks the Dead 2003. First 3 nights amazing--- with a crew at least 20 Deep. We were dancing on stage left stairs. Which at Red Rocks there is a huge cliff called the "Creation Rock." We all had these Jerry Hand Print Truckers Hats--- Red White and Blue various color configurations. No Tickets (I was like 22)--- we all get in all nights. Various Miracles--- Deals left and right--- just a great all of us or none of us vibe.

We were calling ourselves the Creation Rock All-Stars!

Night off. Good Friend Rolls his truck in Loveland. He's Gone. Miss you Just.

4th Night no one wants to go--- I go. Alone.

End up on top of this small building(again I was 22) Dancing from The Wheel > 3. Dark Star > 4. Throwing Stones > 5. Franklin's Tower--- finally get asked to get "the fuck" down. Durring the whole time up there I could feel(see) my friend dancing on the heads of everyone below us in the crowd.

I thought to myself "man now that's the Grateful Dead."

The last night everyone came back and it was extremely healing---- but I will never forget how sad I was, alone I was, and how thankful I was.

that was Furthur (even though the band had a different name)

There was this couple that came into the restaurant back in March, had "that look," y'unnerstand, that little gleam & glow. A little small talk, weather and whatnot, and he asks me, "so, you going to Atlanta?" "Yep!!" I grin, "Hampton & Charleston too!" "Yeah, us too!" she says, "all three! Then....... maybe Florida..." No mention of the band, it was implicit. Anybody listening would've had no clue.

It's like anybody who's ever owned a Volkswagon (air-cooled, not new-schooled) can attest, it's not merely transportation, it's a lifestyle.

When Ram Dass was deep in the "experimentation," he says that it eventually came to the point where, to the person who's had the experience, no explanation was needed, and to him who has not, none is possible....
If unable to dance, I'll crawl.
