Dent May Covers The Grateful Dead

Back when Dead shows were a thing, the main drag of the parking lot where kind veggie burritos, ganja gooballs, and sundry wares of that ilk were at their highest concentration was called “Shakedown Street.” This was also the name of a song (and album) from the Dead’s blurry cocaine-and-disco era.

Area Codes: 662 – Oxford, MS

When I think about the most “American” artists — whatever that means — my consideration often gravitates toward authors like William Faulkner, whose emotional prose shaded a number of complex feelings in all of their bluntness, and photographers like William Eggleston, whose photography truly captured the decay of traditionalism and the prevalence of Southern melancholy.
