So Many Roads: The World in the Grateful Dead, A Conference & Symposium

So Many Roads: The World of the Grateful Dead will bring together poster artists, scholars, participants, and enthusiasts for a ground-breaking four-day international conference and symposium exploring the meaning and impact of the Grateful Dead phenomenon.

The conference represents the culmination of five decades of academic work on the Grateful Dead phenomenon, and demonstrates how scholarly understanding of the Grateful Dead leads to broader understanding of a host of associated literary, historical, artistic, and social contexts and issues.

Over 50 speakers are confirmed. The international roster includes academics, family members and associates of the band, journalists, artists, musicians, and over 15 authors of Dead-related books. On Friday, a celebration of San Francisco poster art featuring work by Stanley Mouse, David Singer, Dennis Larkins, Gary Houston and Chris Shaw will be held in conjunction with a major exhibit of Grateful Dead art in the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Library.

Confirmed participants include Grateful Dead Vault Archivist and Legacy Manager David Lemieux; Rhino Records President Mark Pinkus; acoustician Elizabeth Cohen; technology investor and Moonalice founder Roger McNamee; journalists David Dodd, David Gans, Blair Jackson and Steve Silberman; musicologists Graeme Boone, Shaugn O’Donnell and Brian Felix; historians Michael Kramer and Peter Richardson; photographers Susana Millman, Jay Blakesberg, Ed Perlstein and Bob Minkin; and master chefs Kimball Jones, Kevin Weinberg and Ray Sewell. Family members of the band include Trixie Garcia, Rosie McGee, and Rhoney Stanley.

On Friday November 7, from 6-9 PM there will be a poster reception and Musical Performance by Doobie Decibel System (Roger McNamee and Jason Crosby)

According to Moonalice legend, the great author Charles Dickens wrote a novel that was never published … a sequel to Christmas Carol … called Yom Kippur Warren. It is a tale of joy, featuring the Ghost of Hellmans Past: Warren … who has been shredding on banjo all weekend … Hellmans Present … Mick, who has played drums on several stages … and a posse of Hellmans Future … so numerous, they may need more stages at the festival.

We miss you, Warren!! Shalom, dear friend.
