with the weather warming up i am finding myself listening to more and more grateful dead. rather than bog down the “what are are you listening to?” thread with whatever show i’m listening to that day, i thought it would be worthwhile to start a separate thread for all things dead. after a search it looks like the band almost never comes up on lines, and i’m not sure if that’s because no one else listens to them [in which case this thread is unnecessary] or because no one wants to talk about jam bands on the synth forum [in which case this thread is unnecessary]. i personally feel like there is a lot of crossover between the headspaces required for modular jams and dark star jams. if there are other fans here, maybe this can be a place to talk about dead-related experiences, live sets du jour, dead theory, etc.
this morning i’m listening to Dick’s Picks 27 [12/16/92], i’m loving the vince welnick keys and whatever funky FM synth he’s playing in this show.
big shouts out to M Geddes Gengras for reminding me that it’s cool to be into synths and the dead at the same time
