⚡🌹 Show Update! 🌹⚡
Good news, Deadheads! @johnkadlecik will be sitting in w/ #SplinteredSunlight @gratefuldead tribute for their entire set this Fri. 8/17 🎸🔥 You guys are in for a real treat - Tickets still available!
Sending good vibes to everyone at @moonrisefest this weekend as I reminisce with my sister about our first music festival together 11 years ago! Back when I still had a flip phone, @virginrecords still had stores in America where you could buy compact discs (what are those?!) and raves were still underground. Highlights from the lineup that weekend included Amy Winehouse, Beastie Boys, @wutangclan, @smashingpumpkins, @modestmouse, @lcdsoundsystem, @interpol, @yeahyeahyeahs, @miakhalifa, @incubusofficial, @badbrainsofficial, @velvetrevolverofficial, @thepoliceofficial, and @thecrystalmethod. I remember @matisyahu performed with @311 as well as @infectedmushroom in addition to his own solo set. We met a couple of complete strangers who adopted us as part of their festie fam and I'm so glad they had extra space in their hotel room because I bought the tickets without any plans for a place to sleep once the music stopped.
That weekend set the bar for all of my future festival experiences to follow (12 and counting so far). The crowd keeps getting younger and younger but I honestly don't feel like I'm getting any older (I'm still trying to decide if that's a good thing or a bad thing). It's interesting to see how the music festival scene has evolved over the years, especially in Baltimore. Hopefully people aren't still stealing toilet paper from porta potties to throw into the crowd when the beat drops... ✌🏽🎶🔥⏮😇 @virgin @virginmobileusa @dc101radio @dmvnetwork @musicfestivalseason @richardbranson
August 9, 1995 I remember waking up and staying in bed just a while longer, as outside my bedroom door my roommates had the local station on blast that was playing nothing but the Dead and Jerry Band. I remember laying there so stoked on my life, community, and where I lived. When I finally got up to say good morning, I learned Jerry had passed away. It was the absolute most devastating news. Late that night, a handful of us got into VW and headed to Golden Gate Park for the memorial. It was a beautiful day. My girl Calico came across this photo of us the eve of the memorial in Rolling Stone. We didn't know what would come next, if anything. .
There are NO WORDS for the love I have for my Grateful Dead family and no words for the level of appreciation that after all these years, we still get to get on the bus!
The Music Never Stopped <3
So many roads I know, So many roads to ease my soul.... #RIP Jerry. I’m forever grateful I got to see him play live, and it’s always a little sad on 8/9. And I’m even more fortunate that I found someone to make more musical memories with-
Today is the anniversary of Jerry Garcia’s passing. I was in middle school when the wave of grief spread over the world. It was before I was a fan, but now music touches me daily. His gifts live on...
The Dead Daze of Summer rolls on all this month with our favorite @gratefuldead tribute #SplinteredSunlight 8/10, 8/17, and 8/31 feat. @dangermuffinmusic @johnkadlecik and @undertheoakmusic - the music never stops! 💀⚡️🌹🐢🌞
Pada tahun 2011, sutradara Jim Kohlberg merilis sebuah film berjudul The
Music Never Stop setelah membaca hasil riset seorang dokter bernama Oliver Sacks yang meneliti tentang keterkaitan antara musik dengan sistem kerja otak manusia. Berdurasi 105 menit, film ini menceritakan Gabriel, pria muda yang mengidap tumor otak sehingga tidak mampu lagi menciptakan kenangan.
Menampilkan lagu-lagu klasik dari band-band seperti Bob Dylan, Crosby-Stills-Nash, Donovan, dan terutama The Grateful Dead, film ini menunjukkan bagaimana musik mampu memanggil ingatan-ingatan terdalam Gabriel. The Music Never Stop membawa kegembiraan dan antusiasme yang terdapat pada musik.

21 years ago today, my dad pushed a 12-year-old me in a wheelchair around Warped Tour because I had broken my leg earlier that summer on my second day at sleep-away skate camp (thank you for the refund @woodwardcamp). There was an enormous circle pit during @_pennywise’s set, and my dad will still bring it up from time to time. #digginginthearchives#themusicneverstopped#tbt
