As a side note, the Denver Art Museum has an exhibit on Psychedelic Rock Concert posters, which would make a great field trip for any visitors to Denver looking for something to do during the day. They have plenty of Grateful Dead related stuff, plus, many, many awesome posters from the 60's.

The Dead are at the Pepsi Center in Denver tomorrow night. I'd sure love to meet any of you who are coming into town for the show. The Pranksters' Bus (White VW Camper) will be on site and I'm going to make an RUKIND sign that I'll put up. Also, you can call me at 303-628-5234 after about 1pm (hopefully the lot will be open then) and I'll tell you where we are. I'll have good beer and lots if kindness to share. Come on by!

I have - it's cool. It covers lots of artists (both designers and musicians). It's a cool history of how it all came to be. I am pretty used to most of the posters, but it was cool to see them in real life. In the era of the internet, it's easy to forget how people used to communicate about gathering together. These posters are a collection of how far bands and artists went to do that. The highlight of the art for me was a set of three color concert posters that "moved" by flashing a sequence of green/red/blue lights on it.
There is also this interactive area, which at first seemed lame, but turned cool when I found the "make your own lightshow" exhibit (60's style - using an overhead projector and bags full of liquid colors). Then they have a "make your own concert poster" exhibit using images of different parts of the exhibits on display. You can get pretty complex with it - and at the end you can print out your poster.
We took the kids there, and they were really into the interactive area, as were we.

Oh the show.....Several good highlights. The lot scene was very very cool. Packed with a bunch of bug-eyed happy nice people. That kicked it off for me big time. Inside, well, if I described every show I'd have to see awesome, freaking awesome, wicked awesome, but then again I was extremely bug-eyed going in myself! I was in the rafters so I missed Bob's all-night frown. That's good. I thought Lost Sailor>Saint was fantastic, nice and tight. Acoustic Me & My Uncle was another good one. "I'm as honest as a Denver man can be!" The freakin roof buckled a little on that line. Ramblin Rose was very sweet and energetic and that's where I tipped my hat to Warren. Nice job. Well done. He also did an excellent job with China Doll. Phil! Pulling out Whiskey in the Jar? Very good and sang it well. caveat - I like Phil's voice, always have, know I'm in the minority. King Solomon's Marbles? WTF? Highlight of the show. They killed it. Didn't seem to miss a beat and took out there for a while. Very nice. And always, how about ending the show with NFA, just blistering with energy. I'd say, very good job this band did. I really was entertained the whole day and night. Can wait for the next tour!
