Great footage of the boys jammin', and super mix, sounds really good. Really vintage "Rider", "Dark Star", and incredible "Sing Me Back Home". I want the DVD! Or more showings.....

There was a problem at the theater: we could see the movie but the sound track was Bruce Springsteen! After 30 minutes the problem was still not solved. The manager was nice though - we got a free movie pass and refunds.

You Don't Want To Miss This

If you care anything about the music and the legend of the Grateful Dead, you absolutely don't want to miss this film. This is classic Dead, at the absolute height of their powers, on an incredible day. Transcendent and beautiful... a wonderful time capsule.

Only one thing missing- the closing credit attribution to the naked man on the post behind the stage, or was it an elephant in the room? Either way...

Sunshine Daydream

Too much talk, not enough music. I come to these annual Grateful Dead meet up at the movies events to see concert footage, and to hear songs. A lot of the footage in this film was about the backstory about the concert, and showed interviews with people who were there ( not particularly interesting) and people building the stage (again not interesting). Of course it is always amazing to see the Dead perform, on film or live, but a lot of the film was taken up by one of their super-long trippy jams, which works OK in a live setting when they play for hours, but not so well in a short movie. I would have much preferred to see them play more songs. The film last year at the 2nd annual meet up was much better. Also, I don't mind seeing nude adults dancing, it was kind of fun to see everyone having a good time, but there were some young kids in the audience for whom the film was not appropriate.
