Haven't been here for awhile, life keeps getting in the way.

Hopefully doing a dead concert this Friday and was told livedead.co is the place to go. I'm not sure if I should stream off their site or download show I want. Are there any sound issues? Hoping the site isn't skittish. Any thing I should be aware of?

Any help or suggestions greatly appreciated.

I don't know the site at all so I have no idea if it's clean, or how well it works, but if it was me I would download the concert ahead of time.  Mainly because there is always a chance that come Friday night there could be an issue with the site, or your internet service.  It could buffer or not play at all.  If you download it ahead of time you can makes sure it plays well and that everything you want is there ahead of time which should help insure a smooth show.   

I think that is how I would work it.

Legit site. Looks like more recently recorded concerts there. A lot of pay content there. I'm with SR, download ahead of time. Here's another site with Grateful Dead content. http://archive.org/search.php?query=collection%3AGratefulDead

It looks like a pretty legitimate site, so I don't think you will have any issues with the quality from the source. The first question is are you trying to show it live?  If yes, then you need to stream it.  If no, then you can just download it like the other posters said and you won't have any issues.  If you do choose to stream it the next biggest question is, how do you intend to get it to your projector?  I will assume you are going to use a laptop, do you intend on using a wireless signal or to have it plugged in?  Depending on the speed of your home internet you may have trouble streaming at HD, going wireless will further reduce the speed of your internet and increases the chances of it buffering.  You can test drive this ahead of time by watching some HD videos in your backyard.  Realize though simple changes in atmospherics can impact the quality of your signal the night of. If you have a weak signal or can't go wired, you could get a longer HDMI cable and keep the laptop near the router and run the cable to your projector. How are you running your sound? This will obviously be important for a concert?  I hope some of this helped.
