I am 17 and listen to the Dead all the time, I have many live shows ( in FLAC of course) on my computer that i listen too. I think the notion of wearing a shirt from a concert that you weren't at if your parents didn't buy it for you is crazy. I saw someone wearing this shirt http://www.wearyourbeer.com/images/Grat ... t2_POP.jpg and i just don't understand why someone would wear it other than to seem edgy that you like the Dead. I may be totally wrong in thinking this and that is why I wanted to know from people who actually got to go to concerts. Yes I know Barton Hall was a classic concert and in my opinion their best song ever played was played there, but to remake a shirt from a concert seems a little weird to me.
People like dead art work and tshirts. No requirement that you went to a show to wear a Tshirt, nor any requirement to receive the shirt from your parents. Its just a tshirt.
It is ok to show your colors, Fred
