Here's a new review of GUD that says things like, "What’s most valuable about Growing Up Dead is how easily Conners delineates the Deadhead mindset. He lays out the dancing ritual, from claiming the right spot—“You know there are hallway speakers at this venue… None of you needs to be inside the arena proper—as you say, you know what the band looks like, why bother?”—to minting the right vibe with fellow concertgoers."
