With large numbers of people thus attending strings of shows, a community developed. Deadheads developed their own idioms and slang. Archive founding curator Nicholas Meriwether, who has also written extensively about the culture and its impact on society, predicted, “The Grateful Dead archive is going to end up being a critical way for us to approach and understand the s and the counterculture of the era It’s also going to tell us a lot about the growth and development of modern rock theater, and it’s helping us understand fan culture.
By the late s, some Deadheads began to sell tie-dye T-shirts, veggie burritos, or other items at Grateful Dead concerts. This allowed many Deadheads a way to follow the band on its tours. During the early s, the number of Deadheads taping shows increased, and the band created a special section for fans who wished to record the show.
These tapes are still shared and circulated today via websites such as the Live Music Archive and bt. In the earlier days of the Grateful Dead, there were questions as to whether or not it was in the best interest of the band for fans to tape concerts. In , Garcia himself was asked what he thought about it, and he replied, “When we are done with it [the concerts], they can have it.
This phenomenon was first touched on in print by Village Voice music critic Robert Christgau at a Felt Forum show in , noting “how many ‘regulars’ seemed to be in attendance, and how, from the way they compared notes, they’d obviously made a determined effort to see as many shows as possible. Eileen Law, a long time friend of the band, was put in charge of the mailing list and maintained the Dead Heads newsletter.
It is estimated that by the end of , the band had received about letters, but this number swelled greatly over the next few years to as many as 40,

A few days ago we received word from our local authorities regarding our festival. They, as we, feel that the responsible thing to do is to postpone our 25th celebration to a later date. Over the last couple days we have contacted all of our headline bands to make sure they can perform on the future date. We have received a very positive response back! We will have our Big Grand 25th Celebration! It just needs to be held when we can all hug and love one another without fear or reservation.

How Phish became the unlikely heroes of digital music streaming
It took Randy Owen, Teddy Gentry and Jeff Cook six long years of tip jars and word of mouth to earn the major label deal they’d been dreaming of, but then seemingly no time at all to change the face of country music. They reeled off 21 straight 1 singles, a record that will probably never be equaled in any genre. They brought youthful energy, sex appeal and a rocking edge that broadened country’s audience and opened the door to self-contained bands from then on, and they undertook a journey that led, 73 million albums later, to the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
In Denver and Colorado, jam bands like Phish and The String Cheese “Colorado offers these destination spots for jam-band fans, and we have a lot bureau, this year created a page on its website called A Jam Band Summer of New England with a seven-date run in Colorado in , Matranga said.
Apart, these two words are innocuous. Put them together, though, and for whatever reason they become instantly polarizing. Whenever the subject of jam bands comes up, it seems to send some people into a frenzy of dogmatic snideness. So why the stigma? The Grateful Dead created the sound and were essentially the architects of the scene, and when Jerry Garcia died in a huge group of people were left wondering what was next.
Bands like Phish, which had grown big enough to be playing large summer sheds, and groups like the Dave Matthews Band and Blues Traveler, which had tons of radio hits and went on huge tours of their own. It was actually cool to listen to jam bands, for a minute there. As more electronic-music listeners and a younger generation began listening to these jamtronica acts, there was a noticeable difference in the way the fans dressed. Neon dominated the apparel, along with anything else that lit up; the guy in patchwork pants and tie-dye now looked dated and corny at his own party.
But somewhere along the way, it was more than the look that began to be shunned; it was the whole jam-band scene that was being smirked at. There is no shortage of talented musicians who prefer to improvise on stage as they blend genres and take the audience and themselves on a total sensory experience. If you looked at a picture of the guys from Lotus, for instance, you would see that they dress more like a band from Brooklyn than a band from Woodstock. Not in Psych-rock bands are steadily making their way onto the scene—a scene that is already plenty steeped in psychedelia, by the way.
In Defense of Jam Bands
Aside from, perhaps, a gay bar or an old-school gentlemen’s club, one of the only places in the world you’ll find a significantly shorter line for the women’s bathroom than for the men’s is at a Phish show. Within the small community of female Phish fans, it’s common knowledge that you could be tripping your face off, wearing some kind of complicated lace-up leotard that takes five minutes to free yourself from, and you’d still probably beat your guy friends out of the bathroom at set break.
It’s a blessing to be able to piss in peace, but it’s also a bit off-putting to look around at a sea of white dudes and realize that no, this isn’t a Trump rally, but rather a community you love and have invested significant time and energy in.
It’s weird to mock jam band fans for liking drugs because, outside of straight-edge punk, lovers of nearly every genre take drugs. But if you’re going to go there.
A call of progressive guitar wizardry might elicit a response of soft acoustic balladry, or a funk groove could be answered by explosive percussion.
