On a cool Saturday night my buddy Dean and I drove down to the Ashkenaz on San Pablo Ave. to catch two outstanding Grateful Dead cover bands I have seen quite frequently in the Bay Area over the last year, The Dead Guise and Play Live Dead (formerly known as Live Dead.) Dean had never been to a...

Tatanka made its way to a speaker near me on Feb 3rd, 2010.  Hodi’s Half Note in Fort Collins welcomed them with a free keg of PBR for this Wednesday night show.  Ladies, if you want to find your very own fried egg, you can probably pick one out from the sausage fests known as free keg...

If you have seen live music in Denver, chances are you were at one of the many venues once owned by the Bianchis.  The brothers Jay and Phil started with the original Quixotes True Blue on East Colfax over 12 years ago, and since have opened now renowned venues/bars Sanchos Broken Arrow...

It’s been four years since I have seen Reverend Horton Heat. The last show I witnessed the magic that this band projects was at the Wakarusa Music Festival in 2006. Coincidentally, it was the first review that I ever wrote. I was anticipating the same amount of energy, if not more since the show...

The anticipation outside San Francisco’s Bill Graham Civic Center was at an all time peak! Dead Heads everywhere with their long hair, dread locks, beards, hemp necklaces and tie-dyed clothing were lined up outside the venue either in line or holding up their pointer finger praying for a miracle...

Catching hometown jamgrass legends Yonder Mountain String Band has become a Denver holiday tradition, as the band has performed New Year's Eve concerts here every year for the better part of the last decade.  From electric performances at the Paramount Theater, a supporting/collaborative...

The Grateful Web has been working our butts off to get videos up from the big four night Phish run down in Miami.  Many of the videos up are up now... and more will be coming soon. We also have a lot of photos from New Years Eve as well as the other shows. Thanks to all the great phans and of...

For the entire first set of Furthur at the horribly oversold Hammerstein Ballroom on Wednesday night December 9th, I could not see the band at all. Lucky me. While it might seem counter-intuitive at first, being “ears only” allows for true liberation to experience and liberation by experience. This...

While Phish was ending its musically-epic fall tour at John Paul Jones Arena, in Charlottesville, and while the world was being introduced to The Naked Guy, a new music venue prepared to greet guests for the ‘Official Phish Aftershow, with Toubab Krewe.” The Jefferson Theatre played host to the...

Thanksgiving is a glorious time, here in Central Virginia.  The tourist-laden leaf season is over, yet plenty of post-peak autumnal glory hangs around to be enjoyed, for a little while longer.  Days can still be quite warm, and nights are deliciously cool and refreshing. Thanksgiving,...
