Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To

Fulsome Feel

As you know, TotD aims to be your one-stop shop for all news of the Grateful Dead (Or What’s Left Of ‘Em) and provide you with the unvarnished truth about the secrets Big Dead doesn’t want you to know. It is with this in mind that I pass along this information about the upcoming Folsom Field show in Boulder. There is, however, a second page but I couldn’t get it to upload, so I will copy the facts as best I can:


  • We cannot stress enough how serious we are about your filthy hippie asses being out of the parking lot by midnight. At 12:01, Bigfoot, Gravedigger, and other monster trucks will be released into the lot to crush your Microbuses and Priuses.
  • There are portable toilet facilities located all over, so do not poop in the parking lot. This isn’t Phil’s bocce court.
  • Behavior such as mean-mugging, eyeballing, crip walking, stone cold lamping, and snake-handling may be grounds for a thorough ass-kicking.


  • Smelling like booze.
  • Wearing an alcohol-related t-shirt.
  • Fishing under the influence of alcohol.
  • Fishing at all. (There is only a pool on campus, and none of you should even be in that building.)
  • Weapons, explosives, blades over three inches, blunt objects, hurtful words.
  • If you have been described as a “living weapon,” then you may not come to Folsom Field.
  • Canvassing
  • Burlapping.
  • Do not be bringing your Bernie Sanders petitions up in here: he needs to concede and it’s starting to piss all of us at Folsom Field off.
  • Red Sox hats.
  • Pressure cooker with a small crack in it.
  • Glass-blowing furnaces.
  • Terrorism is prohibited at Folsom Field.


Keep walking, fucko.


  1. I’m actually headed there in about 5 hours. I haven’t packed yet, but I’m working on it. I’m of two minds on this. One is that this is their boilerplate nonsense that they expect at any event? The other is that I’m being profiled 😛

    It would be a shame if they crack down hard on Boulder, tho. A LOT of people are looking forward to this one as a blow out. I’ve been to a few others this tour, and it’s gone swimmingly, so much better than the fall. Not just the music…the presence and attitude and cooperation has been fantastic. I’d really hate to see this be the show that gets Gestapo’d.

    And I don’t even DO 96% of shit on that list, I just like watching people that do :/

  2. Is there a better way to show disrespect for someone than calling them fucko?

    It’s so goddamn direct
