Grateful Dead Meet-Up at the Movies 2015

When: Mon., May 4, 7 p.m. 2015

Though Jerry Garcia’s been dead for almost two decades, his spirit lives on in the hearts of Deadheads across the country. Anyone hoping to rekindle some of the band’s sweet mix of magic and nostalgia should check out this year’s special edition of the Grateful Dead Meet-up at the Movies, presented by Fathom Events. The annual event, now in its fifth year, celebrates the band’s 50th anniversary this year and gives fans the chance to see uncut, unreleased footage of Grateful Dead’s show recorded live on July 19, 1989 at the now legendary Alpine Valley venue in East Troy, Wisc. The concert features performances of fan favorites like “Sugaree” and “Morning Dew.” There will also be covers of some of the Dead’s favorites such as Bob Dylan’s “Desolation Row.” “We’re proud to give Grateful Dead fans the opportunity to experience rare footage of their favorite band every year,” says Fathom Events’ Kymberli Frueh-Owens. The movie will be playing on the big screen for just one night only, so be sure to bring your friends and some tie-dye shirts. You can keep the illicit stuff at home.
