Dead.net Comes to Gathering of the Vibes
Bridgeport, CT’s Gathering of the Vibes kicks off today. Since the festival was founded as a way for Deadheads to connect after the death of Jerry Garcia, it makes sense that surviving Grateful Dead members Phil Lesh, Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann and Donna Jean Godchaux will all perform at the festival with their current projects. The band’s official website Dead.net will also have a booth presence at the Vibes. Fans who stop by the booth Friday or Saturday can win some prizes, including a signed Mouse/Kelley numbered, limited edition Skull & Roses lithograph (valued at $1495.00). The booth will also host meet and greets with extended Dead family members and scholars like David Meerman Scott (Friday, 2PM), Peter Connors (Saturday, 3 PM), David Gans (Saturday, 4 PM) and Gary Lambert (Saturday, 4 PM). While onsite at Vibes, be sure to stop by _Relix_’s own subscription booth.
