UNCONFIRMED RUMOR DEPT: Dead and Company to play Golden Gate Park in August 

UNCONFIRMED RUMOR DEPT: Dead and Company to play Golden Gate Park in August 

Dead and Company to play Golden Gate Park
August 2?, 2016?!? 

This is unconfirmed.
That means we really know nothing.  
This could be a really well done prank. 

THIS IS UNCONFIRMED! 

 THIS IS NOT AN OFFICIAL SHOW ANNOUNCEMENT! 

It’s close enough to pretend… 

This photo has been circulating in our social circles the last 48 hours.  Deadheadland has withheld publication, looking for confirmation. No one we know knows anything… Or they’re not allowed to say.

We have heard it’s all mum since Shoreline is this week, and the band has contractual obligations to not promote this until after. 

Questions abound…

Is it for real? Will it cost money  or be free?  Will we need tickets, or is it a free open concert in the park?   Is it the weekend before Lockn Festival, or the same weekend?  Will there be other bands? 

Anyone with more information, please let us know! 

If it’s a prank, good job! 

THIS IS UNCONFIRMED! 

 THIS IS NOT AN OFFICIAL SHOW ANNOUNCEMENT!

Lyrics from The Annotated Grateful Dead 

“I Will Take You Home”
Words by John Perry Barlow; music by Brent Mydland

Little girl lost
In a forest of dreams.
It’s a dark old wood
And it’s damp with dew.
Hoot owl hoots
For a moment it seems
Something big and cold
Just got ahold of you.
Just when everything gets scary,
Daddy’s come ’round for his darlin’ again.
Hold my hand with your little fingers.
Daddy’s loving arms gonna gather you in.
Ain’t no way the Bogeyman can get you,
You can close your eyes, the world is gonna let you,
Your daddy’s here and never will forget you,
I will take you home.
I will take you home.
Gonna carry you back home
In my arms.
I will take you home.
Long is the road
We must travel on down.
Short are the legs
That will struggle behind.
I wish I knew for sure
Just where we’re bound,
What we will be doin’
And what we’re gonna find.
Wherever we go, there will be birds to cheer you
Flower to color in the fields around.
Wherever we go, I’ll be right here near you
You can’t get lost when you’re always found.
Ain’t no fog that’s thick enough to hide you
Your daddy’s gonna be right here beside you
If your fears should start to get inside you
I will take you home.
I will take you home.
Gonna carry you back home
In my arms.
I will take you home.

We Can Run
Grateful Dead

We don’t own this place, though we act as if we did,
It’s a loan from the children of our children’s kids.
The actual owners haven’t even been born yet.

Bur we never tend the garden and rarely we pay the rent,
Some of it is broken and the rest of it is bent
Put it all on plastic and I wonder where we’ll be when the bills hit.

We can run,
But we can’t hide from it.
Of all possible worlds,
We only got one:
We gotta ride on it.
Whatever we’ve done,
We’ll never get far from what we leave behind,
Baby, we can run, run, run, but we can’t hide.
Oh no, we can’t hide.

I’m dumpin’ my trash in your back yard
Makin’ certain you don’t notice really isn’t so hard
You’re so busy with your guns and all of your excuses to use them.

Well, it’s oil for the rich and babies for the poor,
We got everyone believin’ that more is more,
If a reckoning comes, maybe we will know what to do then.

All these complications seem to leave no choice,
I heard the tongues of billion speak with just one voice,
Saying, “just leave all the rest to me,
I need it worse than you, you see.”
And then I heard,
The sound of one child crying.

Today I went walking in the amber wind,
There’s a hole in the sky where the light pours in
I remembered the days when I wasn’t afraid of the sunshine.

But now it beats down on the asphalt land
Like a hammering blow from god’s left hand
What little still grows cringes in the shade like a bad vine.

Because the Phans want to know!

Listen to a rare Jerry Garcia Band track  “After Midnight” 1976, from Betty Boards found on Houseboat ~ the next GarciaLive release! 

“After Midnight”
from GarciaLive Vol. 7:
November 8, 1976
Sophie’s Palo Alto

Featuring the lovely Donna Jean!
This release is due out next month, and more information can be found at www.jerrygarcia.com 

From Jerry’s website

Volume Seven showcases the Jerry Garcia Band’s November 8th, 1976 performance at Sophie’s in Palo Alto, California. Recorded by Betty Cantor-Jackson, the original master reels were only recently re-discovered, along with a few other reels dubbed the “Houseboat Tapes”, and have been remastered for this release. It was the year of this recording that Donna Jean and Keith Godchaux first joined up with the Jerry Garcia Band. Their addition, along with Ron Tutt on drums and bassist John Kahn, helped form what would be one of the most durable lineups of the Garcia Band. In fact, earlier that year Garcia commented “I haven’t been as happy with any little performing group since Old And In The Way in terms of feeling ‘this is really harmonious, this is what I want to hear.’”

That harmonious vibe is especially present as well. Throughout the course of the evening, the band deftly melds gospel, rock, soul, and reggae to form their quintessential mid-70’s sound. As one astute critic pointed out, “More than any other Garcia band this one allows him room to run through all his guitar styles, often within a single song.” From the opening notes of “The Way You Do The Things You Do”, the band lock into a relaxed, but confident groove with Kahn & Tutt’s deep pocket providing the foundation for Jerry & Keith’s melodic exploration rounded out by Donna Jean’s soulful harmonies. The Hunter/Garcia penned “Mission in the Rain” and Dylan’s “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door” are particularly poignant and soulful while songs like “Midnight Moonlight”, “Tore Up Over You” and “Ride Mighty High” provide the sparks bringing balance to the evening. A 22+ minute “Don’t Let Go” stands out not only for its length, but for its exercise in dynamics which further showcases Garcia’s comfort not only with the band, but the freedom found in playing smaller rooms tailor-made for they type of music he was looking to create.
