This weekend marks the final time The Grateful Dead will play together (not counting occasional retirement home jams) and fans are preparing to get a little crazy for the final Fare Thee Well shows. “A little crazy” means massive amounts of edibles or hallucinogens.

Security working the Chicago shows was given specific instructions on how to deal with any fans having a not-so-great time while tripping balls at the show.

Will this be the first time people are working security at a concert? I’ve got to think this happens at many rock concerts but it’s been a long time for me since I’m married with kids and have no fucking life. And is security supposed to carry this list around?

“HOLD STILL HIPPIE! I NEED TO SEE IF YOU’RE HAVING A GOOD OR BAD TRIP! LET ME CHECK MY LIST! WHEN MY FLASHLIGHT SMASHES AGAINST YOUR HEAD, DOES IT FEEL HEAVY?!?!”

Our friends over at Death and Taxes have a much better idea. Instead of a list of possible behaviors, just show everyone working security this video and say “this guy, look for this guy.”
