Rocking A Long Strange Trip…

News this week about Nugs.net offering MQA–encoded content got me thinking about jam bands, and The Dead in particular. Now news from the NY Times about a new Dead rockumentary made me want to share it with y’all…

Amir Bar-Lev’s 2017 pic, “Long Strange Trip,” is a four hour romp through the world of Garcia and his Dead pals. To quote IMDB, “The tale of the Grateful Dead is inspiring, complicated, and downright messy. A tribe of contrarians, they made art out of open-ended chaos and inadvertently achieved success on their own terms. Never-before-seen footage and interviews offer this unprecedented and unvarnished look at the life of the Dead.”

If you’re a Dead Head, this might be perfect viewing for the long weekend coming up!
