Looking back on the Human Be-In which was held in the Polo fields of Golden Gate Park on this day in 1967. | “As the shadows lengthened, Allen Ginsberg's voice came over the sound system, asking everyone to run towards the sun and watch the sunset. Later, he asked everyone to help clean up the debris and they did. And so it ended, the first of the great gatherings… This is truly something new and not the least of it is that it is an asking for a new dimension to peace, for the reality of love and a great nest for all humans." - Ralph Gleason, San Francisco Chronicle | 📷: Lisa Law

“Playing the The Warfield with Melvin Seals is about as close to Jerry Garcia church as you can get. The JG Birthday Band shows have been really special and this weekend is going to top it all!” – @OteilBurbridge | We’re looking forward to seeing everyone this weekend for Like A Road Leading Home: Celebrating Jerry Garcia!
