Prolly gonna slow down again

Ebb, flow, ebb, flow. Blogging is likely to be like that, for awhile.

In the meantime, regarding 46 years ago today: did the Dead play Hippie Hill?

  1. Who knows, they might have.

    While they were thought to have played at the Vancouver Pop Festival on 8/24/69, it turns out they didn't.

    This Vancouver Sun article notes that "the Grateful Dead never showed up" at the festival:

    Terry Mulligan's book Mulligan's Stew has several pages on the festival (he introduced the bands) - "three days of rain, cold, and miserable hippies." The festival was apparently a disaster: "The Grateful Dead didn't even show up, probably because they weren't paid in advance."
