Grateful Dead: Relix is giving away GD50 Chicago Tickets

via pagedownphish:


Relix is Giving Away 2 GA Tickets to All 3 Nights of Fare Thee Well Chicago 

If it were not for the Grateful Dead, Relix would not exist. We started 41 years ago as a tape trading fan zine doing our best to connect fans with other fans to spread the word and shared love for the band. We could not be more excited to be able to give one lucky person the ability to attend the Fare Thee Well shows in Chicago this summer. We have 2 GA floor tickets for the entire weekend in Chicago that we will be giving away at random to one lucky winner. These tickets are nontransferrable. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Grateful Dead, the four original members — Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann, Phil Lesh, and Bob Weir — will reunite at Chicago's Soldier Field, nearly 20 years to the day of the last Grateful Dead concert, which took place at the same venue. “Fare Thee Well: Celebrating 50 Years of Grateful Dead" will occur over three nights on July 3, 4, and 5, 2015, marking the original members' last-ever performance together. The band will be joined by Trey Anastasio (guitar), Jeff Chimenti (keyboards), and Bruce Hornsby (piano). The group will perform two sets of music each night. Joining the original members of Grateful Dead are three musicians who have embodied the band’s spirit of musical innovation throughout their eclectic careers. Guitarist Trey Anastasio is best known for his work as the principal songwriter and lead guitarist for touring juggernaut Phish, but he has also found time to score and arrange music for orchestras and Broadway productions such as “Best Musical” TONY nominee ‘Hands on a Hardbody.’ Pianist Bruce Hornsby had already won the first of his three Grammy Awards when he first guested with Grateful Dead in 1988. Following the death of the band’s keyboard player Brent Mydland in 1990, Hornsby toured with the group into 1992, and he has maintained a collaborative relationship with its members ever since. Bay Area native and jazz keyboardist Jeff Chimenti joined Bob Weir’s Rat Dog in 1997, and has since worked on projects such as Phil Lesh & Friends, The Other Ones, The Dead, and Furthur. Enter now for your chance to win!

AFSCME - Mitt Romney: "I Love Lamp" [VIDEO]

As the 2012 douchebag clownshow rolls on, AFSCME comes in with the hilarity.

Uploaded by  on Feb 21, 2012

Mitt Romney's recent pandering speech in Michigan sounded awfully familiar. Just as Will Ferrell's character Ron Burgundy in the movie Anchorman might have asked, "Mitt, are you just naming things you see in the state and saying you love them?"
