Recommended Posts

Haven’t vended since 91.  Any new rules apply for vending in the lot at shows?  Thinking of doing UTICA and Rochester.

I haven't been to Utica, but I set some stuff up at Rochester last year with no trouble and plan on it again this year. Usually see people at every show I attend with smaller stuff like pins stickers etc on tables or standing with a pin board. Probably depends on the rules wherever you are to what degree you can set up. What are you selling?

They supposedly shut down Chicago shakedown because most didn’t have permits. Only a few vendors remained on Saturday who spent the whole day process to get one.  But it was nasty all day raining. so it was gonna be dead anyway.

Note that was at deadco. It was such a massive scene the city wanted their cut. If there were 5 vendors they would’nt have wasted their time. I say go for it.

I vended from 1997-2001. For the most part, I killed it. Thankfully, the ratio of people to vendors were good, but we fought the local venue and police tooth and nail and had to play many games of set up, take down, set up. Knowing when to be sly, when to be aggressive, when to bribe the police-all of it was key. The same venue could treat you differently depending on the day or the hour. It was a game, for sure, but having a larger crowd is key to business and often the key to receiving cover. I vended Further Festival, Other Ones, Phil Lesh & Friends, Ratdog, and did occasional jaunts with Phish, SCI, Dave Matthews, Widespread as needed for filler.

 

Good luck

We’re selling Dyes.  I’m just asking if anyone pays a venue fee or fee to the city.  I never did before for the GOGD. But like I said, it was almost 30 years ago.  I’ve attempted to reach out to the Venues but haven’t received a call back. 

And I’m not about to call the city to open up a can of worms. I also want to be fair if others vendors are paying a fee.

Ain’t no fees to vend at DSO. Hardly lucrative (we go to Dead co for money and DSO for the music!) but helps to recreate/continue the Grateful Dead experience when vendors are around. DSO plays smaller venues than the boys, so shakedown is small and we all know each other. Sometimes the venue is too small and vending is frowned on, but mostly they are groovy about going to venues that let us do our thing. I called the city once for that infamous Dewey Beach show (y’all know the ONE) and we were told we weren’t allowed to get a vending permit, but when we told the cops the guys name we talked to (bill Mease, will never forget that name) it saved us from getting fined or our shit taken cause the cops said the dude was an asshole n shoulda let us pay the fee. So...... yeah, bring your dyes and provide something built to last (cause the nitrous does NOT!) kiss kiss, have fun!

    • That Lucky ‘ol Sun

      A song that for me totally embodies the relationship between two incredible talents that speak to one another thru their instruments. They both really shine in this one. Heard Jeff do it last year, I think Atlanta, and he fucking killed it.  Makes me emotional to hear Jerry sing it during this era. He was awesome.
    • Deal 9/5/89
      By: Ammagamalin Crew · 05/01/2019
      I did both those jgb merriweather shows, alpine and poplar creek. Horn hat AKG 460's > dbx224(battery converted) >d5. The dixie at merriweather, the lonesome at Alpine and the let's spend at poplar were choice. Heading to Louisville this weekend for Uli jon roth , closest thing to hendrix I've ever seen. My first deal was when jg opened for fz August 1984 in Chicago. the studio version is a good listen.

      I love this song. I love the record version, and I love how it changed over the years. There were more than a few hot ones in 1983-1984, then while always good, it seems that 1989 brought out extra hot ones again. I love this one with JGB, its a toss up between this one and the Alpine Valley shows from the summer which I like best from that year.

      Has DSO ever played this song? I would love to hear it live
    • The Motorcycle Song -- Arlo Guthrie
      By: goganious · 02/09/2019
      I once bought a kitten and he just kept meowing and meowing. He talked quite a bit. Then I started stringing up my guitar that evening, and he came over and started pawing at the frets, meowing meowing meowing. I looked at this overly talkative creature who was now trying to play his dad's guitar, and the name was obvious at once: Arlo.  12 years later, he still talks a lot. Love Arlo Guthrie. Such a unique and funny personality. Have seen him a few times. He always puts on a great show.
