...here's a study of venues that Jerry Garcia has performed at/in with and without The Grateful Dead. Venues in the broad sense of the word. It's not perfect but it sure is fun discovering! Feel free to add your comments and to correct me when needed!
informal picking locations -- of which there would actually be many

"Back in the day, we played in an
awful lot of people's kitchens. We sometimes played in cars. This is
pretty comical to consider. Bottom line, I think, is that these were
not "performances" -- or they weren't if a performance
implies an audience. Maybe I should say a known audience, as the
potential attendance of squirrels and other critters is generally
beyond our awareness...." (Sandy Rothman)
