Happy Anniversary

Dead_50th_instagram_post_view_(510x510)

And Cinco de Mayo too. So apparently today is the actual date of the Dead’s 50th anniversary, brought to my attention by a Beast article, for what that’s worth. If there’s a tribute post to be written here, i’m not really the one to do it. But i did want to drop this video from their Meet Up at the Movies, apparently screened yesterday, from the July 19, 1989 show in Wisconsin. (unfortunately, WP won’t take the embed, so a link will have to do.) Jerry’s voice sounds like shit, but love this beautiful guitar on Sugaree.

Think one of he Beast commenters said it best –

Fare you well, fare you well
I love you more than words can tell
Listen to the river sing sweet songs
To rock my soul
