Dead and Gone - new podcast focusing on crimes involving deadheads following band
This sounds pretty interesting. First season focuses on:

quote:

It’s inspired by the findings of armchair detective Todd Matthews, who discovered that an outsized number of Grateful Dead fans fall victim to foul play.

Considering himself the world’s first cyber-sleuth, Matthews uses the Internet to solve cold murders and identify missing persons through crowdsourcing. The podcast centers on a particular case in which two Deadheads were killed and the wrong man seems to have been convicted.

This is so up my alley. I hope they explore other parts of the scene as well like the nitrous mafia.

On the surface the scene was so positive and full of "love," but there were a shite ton of people who hung out in the scene that were shady AF and basically were criminals who used the underground nature of the scene to run their scams on naive and trusting hippies.

Sheets of bogus blotter, counterfit tickets, and the t-shirt sellers who looked like big commercial vendors rolling up with van loads of Dead merch. Shakedown Street was definitely shady a.f.

Dirty hippy drifters are disproportionately violent and/or the victims of violent crimes? Well, hold my grilled cheese, whodathunk it?

I don’t think “disproportionately” applies

Uh, what does "outsized" mean in this context? Reading is fundamental.

I went to school in Virginia and saw lots of east coast shows and the Meadowlands were known for thuggish security,,,perhaps rivaled only by the Crap Center in Landover, MD. I think the story goes the security guards beat the shite out of him and then dumped out by the side of the highway

I recall the kid in LA got arrested for possession or something and was tripping hard and the cops choked him out George Floyd style.
