Why do I do this?'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!

..."do those informal picking locations -- of which there would actually be many more -- become "venues"??
"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)
