“Grateful” cannot be found anywhere on the collective résumé of all of those shuffling stiffs from “The Walking Dead,” but the Dancing Dead? Now that’s a whole other thing. The Skull & Roses Festival III, happening all weekend at the Ventura County Fairgrounds, is a celebration of all things Dead — the Grateful Dead and their legendary legion of Deadhead fans.
