Whatcha got?


  1. Is this the cleanest stage they have ever played on? Aside from the kid craping himself

  2. Stay away from the brown acid!

  3. I assume they are in a studio, they are making a record that is not worthy. The kid knows this and is trying to get them to stop this foolish attempt, and make a live record.

  4. “I just returned from time sheathing to 2017 and holy fuck, you guys…” -Horrified Boy

  5. Pig’s a bad man! Pig’s a VERY bad man! And Jerry keeps thinking bad thoughts about me.

  6. Why’d you punch me in the dick, Uncle Billy? Why?!?

  7. And Bobby’s nickname was “The Kid”

  8. I know we’re focused on captioning and the kid, but the real story is the svelte Garcia and his hipster cheetah print trousers.

  9. Mean, Green, Devil Eating Machine

    There was something about the kid wanting to play tambourine, and there wasn’t a tambourine around, and he got upset.

  10. Tonight the role of Bill Graham will be performed by his understudy.

    “Scully said they’d give me triple scale if I ululate”

  12. Sunshine stole my joint

  13. “Hey Pig, I don’t think that’s Weir.”

    “waaaahhhhhh, who took my bass!?!?!?”

  15. “What do you mean there’s no wifi?”

    For those keeping score at home, that’s the Dead’s NYC debut on June 1st at the Tompkins Square Park bandshell. From a slightly different angle…

  17. Bobby didn’t get a nap

  18. seems to me like that silly lyric is some kind of call-out for a wannabe tough guy/baddie, maybe with a southern background…or kinda southern roughnecks in general…it strikes me as one of those Dead lyrics that might have a specific story and reference behind it. In general it seems to be about a guy who’s trouble but not as tough as he wants to be

    interesting that this is one of the Hunter songs Dylan picked up and at least for awhile played live pretty regularly

  19. “Now take ANOTHER step back.”

  20. Those BASTARDS killed Bonnie Dobson’s masterpiece!

  21. After being told he can’t be a Grateful Dead (punctuated by a kick in the pants from Pigpen), young John Boehner vows revenge.

  22. “I want my MTV.”

  23. Too…much…potato…salaaaaaad.

    “Arrrrrrrghhhhhhhhh!!!………..Bigsbyyyyyyyyy!?!?!?!…….oh, the Humanity…..what’s the use?”

    the Bigsby Boy. kinda like the “Ray? Who cares?” Girl

  25. “A Les Paul can’t choogle!”

  26. “Why can’t I wear shoes like all my friends?!!”
