The strip of vendors outside of a concert in the parking lot, usually defined by their tailgate style tents. Common things sold are food, tye-dye, patchwork clothing and bags, tapestries and incense. The term comes from the so-named Grateful Dead song, because so many vendors found their place at Grateful Dead shows in their lot scene.
Did you try the veggie burritos from Shakedown Street before the show?
