Grateful Dead back together to perform?

Could it be? Is it possible?

Fox news is reporting (that's a stretch in itself) that the surviving members of the Grateful Dead, along with Warren Haynes will perform on October 13 for 1 show to raise awarness for our next (hopefully) president, Barack Obama. According to reports, the show will take place in Philadelphia or Pittsburgh. A 2009 tour is also mentioned.

Help Wanted Part Time


Our shop in the Mt. Prospect (NW Chicago suburbs) is looking for 1-2 good people. 15-25 hours per week. Qualifications are listed below. Please don't bother applying if you think working at Sunshine Daydream is sitting on your ass doing nothing and just jamming out. I don't mean to sound harsh, but lazy people are not wanted. Most people who work for us either don't last 30 days, or they stay around for 4-5 years. It can be a great part time job with all kinds of perks, but there is work involved.
Working for us, you will help customers, stock merchandise, work on our website, pack and ship orders, etc., all the while you are listening to your favorite jamband music in a pretty cool environment. Sometimes we get FREE tickets to local concerts and we usually pass them on to the employees and employees get a discount on most merchandise. It can be a cool place to work at. Sometimes its slow and boring but you can always find thing to do. And yes you could get yelled at if you do something stupid while working at Sunshine Daydream. Political correctness isn't my strong suit. Bullshit isn't tolerated either.
There's more but that's the basics. If you are interested and have the qualifications listed, then drop me an email at (NO PHONE CALLS!) and tell me about yourself and why you want to work here.


(HTML & Web Design a big plus! Could mean more hours and more pay, internship credit too.)

21 OR OVER (Its a legal thing)


INITIATIVE (I hate having to ALWAYS tell employees what to do)

STAYING LOCALLY (Not going away to college)

FLEXIBLE SCHEDULE (Prefer you can generally work any day of the week. Saturdays are a must!)

PREVIOUS RETAIL EXPERIENCE (working a cash register, customer service, merchandising)

WORK IN A DRUG FREE WORKPLACE (You think I am kidding? What you do on your own time is your business.)

So, if you are still interested in working part time at Sunshine Daydream, send an email to: . Save your resume for someone else. Send us a paragraph or 2 about yourself, your qualifications, and why you would be a good addition to our place. Include your phone number, so we can call you .
