I have been busy geocoding my Garciavents. Since I do this stuff by hand, it's rather laborious. But I am excited about the possbilities the work will create! With Clio and Geo (so to speak), animated maps should be a snap.

More traffic

Stats show some folks reading "James Booker, Classified". Check that and "Jerry's January 1976" out to get ready for the month. Hopefully your January is better than 1976 Jerry's!

GD Stinson Beach Rehearsal Space 1973

Somewhere LIA was leaving notes and discussion of the Dead's "Stinson Beach rehearsal space" ca. 1973. Can someone point me to that thread?

adding: "fwiw it sounds like Mick on both recordings to these ears".

I have updated the document CXL - List of Canceled Grateful Dead Gigs - List of Canceled Jerry Garcia Gigs. This is v002.

This attempts to incorporate commenters' suggestions --special thanks to LIA and runonguinness.

Comment on the Blogger Page so we can keep keeping track.

Jerry Garcia, January 17, 1972-January 29, 1972

Here's a visualization of the Garciaverse from January 17-29, 1972. This being blogger, I hope you can see it.

"Jerry Garcia, January 17, 1972-January 29, 1972"

Here is the Codebook as PDF.

There's no particular reason I am showing this slice, just wanted to give you all a look at how some of the cancellations fit in, and how I have my data visualizations currently configured.

Since we're here, though, we can see the Hooteroll? tour contemporaneous with canceled Dead and Jerry gigs. Which is the chicken and which the egg, which the cause and which the effect, I leave to your speculation.

Ateliers to Empereur

Les Sports Illustrés (Brussels, Belgium) moved from 3, rue des Ateliers to 12, rue de l'Empereur sometime between 1924 and 1926. Business must have been good.

Added bonus, the one from Workshop Street, no. 188, has a story about some 1924 New York Giants barnstorming outside of Paris.
