Deadheadism in the 1800s 


  1. LIA --

    After reading several of the older newspaper articles, I thought about the general tone they had and how it even the tone of criticism back then seemed quite different.

    Having enjoyed all those clips of cops gunning down unarmed people as much as the next guy, I found the newspaper clip that was included in the most recent Dave's Picks (3/28/73) to be somewhat heartening.

    "Police did not report any serious problems with the fans and were philosophic about a group of 30 teenagers who tried to pull down a door facing Dwight Street. 'They backed a car up on the sidewalk and tied a chain around the fender to the door and tried to pull it down. They managed to break the lock. We got there before any of them could get in and chained the door shut. 'You know how kids are," one patrolman said."

    Quite refreshing. These days they probably would have immediately shot the lot of them.

    Anyway, I'm having a great time reading all these old articles and, being a semi-old fart, kind of shaking my head because the tone of the articles reminds me of how different things used to seem. Nothing was bad or dangerous . . . .

    Even the outraged ones have a totally different tone. To kind of paraphrase my impression from a couple I just read "Well, I'm darned if we are going to put up with that amount of litter again. If you want to behave like slobs, no more rock concerts for you . . . ."

    1. Oh, I don't know. Head-bashing & arrests are definitely underrepresented in the articles I've posted so far, but these were middle-class concerts, not ghetto riots. There have been some cultural changes - the number of gatecrashers & bomb threats in the early '70s (and the passive response to them) is bewildering to read about today - and perhaps society was more open then; but the country was certainly no more peaceful then than it is now. Police could be more benign in some areas & settings, but it's hard to generalize. Repression takes different forms, and police presence at Dead shows should be measured not by the number of people injured, but by the number of people who had to serve time afterwards.

      For a good look at cop/audience relations in the early '70s, check the banter after Bertha in the 11/11/71 show:
