The release date and one-night only big-screen showing of the Grateful Dead’s “Sunshine Daydream” is this Thursday, August 1, Jerry Garcia’s birthday. The film documents what is considered one of the Dead’s greatest performances, the 08/27/72 concert in Veneta, Oregon.
Fans have long hoped for a high-quality release of the movie, which has been in bootleg circulation for years. On Thursday, they get their wish. The film is restored to HD video, has new stereo & 5.1 audio mixes and contains additional footage & interviews.
Advance tickets are available online. Showtime is 7:30p (local). Click here for screening locations & tickets, and preview a clip from the film below.
