The Dead - Shoreline Amphitheater May 2009

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to see The Dead for the first time in....a long time!  (15 years?  How can that even be??)  At first I was a little apprehensive, as the show would be sans-Jerry, but Brett and EP convinced me that it would be a good time.  Peter decided that this was not his scene, and we all agreed that he would not have survived the free love and hippie vibe.  I cannot thank the Van Emsts enough for the stellar tickets, the adventure in Big Blue, and especially for the laughs.  I was not disappointed, although Jerry was missed.  I still remember my first Dead Show wandering around the parking lot of McNichols Arena in Denver with my buddy Ryan who said to me, "You see that man in the beard on stage Burger?  As long as he is standing, we are standing."  Here's to fierce jams, fire dancers, veggie burritos, and Jerry Garcia.

Brett managed to capture the event on video.  To check it out, click here.
