Somebody got murdered on New Year's Eve
Somebody said dignity was the first to leave
I went into the city, went into the town
Went into the land of the midnight sun

Rolling Stone: Grateful Dead Movie Meet-Up To Screen Unreleased 1989 D.C. Concert
RFK Stadium show will play in movie theaters nationwide for one night only in August
By Jon Blistein | June 29, 2017

The Grateful Dead will screen their previously unreleased July 12th, 1989 concert at Washington D.C.'s RFK Stadium in movie theaters nationwide August 1st. Screenings for the band's seventh annual Meet-Up at the Movies event will begin at 7 p.m. local time.

Organizers Fathom Events and Rhino Entertainment released a 30-second trailer for the Meet-Up featuring snippets of the Dead performing tracks like "New Minglewood Blues" and "Touch of Grey." A list of participating theaters and tickets are available via the Fathom website.

The 1989 RFK show came in the middle of a busy year for the Grateful Dead, during which they played 74 shows and cemented their place as the third-biggest rock and roll concert attraction after the Rolling Stones and the Who. Still, the band often faced opposition when they rolled through town, including a Washington D.C. councilwoman, who represented the neighborhood surrounding RFK Stadium and lobbied against the show before ultimately reversing her position.

The concert at RFK notably featured a rare first set occurrence, with all four of the Dead's lead singers performing at least one song. During set two, Bruce Hornsby joined the band for two tracks, "Man Smart (Woman Smarter)" and "Sugaree," which also served as an atypical set two opener. The concert film also includes one of the only versions of "Black Muddy River" recorded on video.

Earlier this year, the Grateful Dead celebrated the 40th anniversary of their 1977 concert film The Grateful Dead Movie with a nationwide screening event.

Members of the Dead and John Mayer are currently on tour as Dead and Company. The outfit will wrap their trek with a two-night stand at Wrigley Field in Chicago June 30th and July 1st.

Read Rock Scully's book "Living With the Dead". It turns out these guys are/were just drug- and alcohol-addicted sociopaths preying on young girls and living like kings while their deluded fans worshiped them and lived like the scum of the earth. A colossal waste of time, energy, resources, and young minds! Robert Hunter: "We turned self-indulgence into an art form". That's the truth, except it's not really art (I'll grant there are a few really well-written songs). Listen with an objective ear--the vocals are terrible, the playing sloppy, and the whole thing basically dependent on state-of-the-art sound equipment which YOUR money paid for. The rich get richer, the deadheads stay poor--look at the houses Phil and Bob live in now. They gain the world and lose their souls.
True, but most of us knew and were happy to provide
