Many potential Great GoogaMooga attendees were frustrated today in their efforts to sign up for free admission to the two-day food, drink and music festival, which is set to take place in Neathermead Meadow at Brooklyn’s Prospect Park on May 19 and 20. Eventbrite, the company handling registration for the Brooklyn-based event, has updated the details on the sign-up page to read “Early registration is full. We apologize for the frustrations you had today in registering. If you haven’t been able to register yet please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.” There was also a note for those who made it through the registration process but didn’t receive an email: “For customers who received a confirmation message, but who did not yet receive an email with confirmation of your registration, please note that you will be receiving an email shortly.” So all hope isn’t lost for those who want to attend the inaugural edition of Superfly Presents’ new festival. If you want to go, either email the email@example.com address or spring for the Extra Mooga Package.

Finally, while Jerry Garcia left behind a sizable musical legacy, that included 40+ years of recorded material both in the studio and of course on stage, the late Grateful Dead guitarist also left behind a treasure trove of his personal belongings after dying of a heart attack in 1995 at the age of 53. On May 8, auction home Bonhams will give fans a chance to buy a number of unique items from the Garcia estate, including a handful of original, never seen pieces of art, several acoustic stage-used guitars, handwritten setlists and even a 1983 Harley-Davidson motorcycle. An auction preview will take place in New York from April 11-16 and another in San Francisco May 4-7.
