Looks Like Rain

Some things don’t change.  People die.  Others get born to take their place.  Storms cover the land with trouble.  And then, always, the sun breaks through again.”  John Barlow

Robert Hunter recalls, “Enter, John Barlow, in Pecos Bill getup, silk kerchief, and Stetson hat, as befit a Wyoming ranch boss and author of the lyrics to ‘Mexicali Blues.’  Billy goats together, only he knew Weir well enough to butt horns with him, part friends, and do it again.”

Submitted by Alan Sheckter on Sun, 09/17/2017 - 7:29 am

A few thousand music-loving adventure-seekers on September 9 received quite the idyllic sun-splashed reward when they witnessed this year’s Sound Summit, headlined by Phil Lesh and some extra special “friends.” The eight-hour festival-like show, chock full of five performers plus an avant-garde dance ensemble, took place at a perch high above Marin County, California’s Mill Valley, at a hundred-year-old stone amphitheater near the top of the area’s famed Mt. Tamalpais.

Josh Ritter's "When Will I Be Changed" featuring Bob Weir

Submitted by Sacks and Company on Fri, 09/08/2017 - 9:38 am

Acclaimed artist Josh Ritter’s new track, “When Will I Be Changed,” featuring guest vocals from fellow collaborator and legendary musician Bob Weir premiered yesterday via Rolling Stone Country. Of the song, Rolling Stone Country proclaims, “The song pitches its tent midway between the country, gospel and soul camps, with thickly stacked harmonies that evoke the Dead’s own folk-rock classic American Beauty.” You can listen/share the track here: http://bit.ly/2gOaCk9

Lockn' Festival 2017 | Day 4 in Virginia

Submitted by L. Paul Mann on Mon, 09/04/2017 - 11:16 am

Clouds rolled into the final day of Lockn’ cooling the summer sun and creating a pleasant last day for the festival. Collaborations abounded on the last day much to the delight of music fans who stuck it out for the nearly none stop four-day musical jam. This year Lockn’s audience was nothing other than exuberant, cheerful and respectful. The multigenerational crowd seemed almost like a giant extended family on a huge holiday picnic.

Dead & Company | Wrigley Field | 7/1/17

Submitted by Nate Crawford on Mon, 07/03/2017 - 8:04 am

I had the treat to head to Chicago from my northern Indiana home and catch the good ol’ Grateful Dead at Wrigley Field on July 1, 2017. I shouldn't say it was the Grateful Dead, though, as this entity, called Dead and Company, is a very different animal, containing three original members of the Dead (Bob Weir, Bill Kreutzmann, and Mickey Hart) along with three other, quite accomplished musicians (John Mayer, Oteil Burbridge, and Jeff Chimenti).

Dead & Company | Shoreline Amphitheatre

Submitted by Alan Sheckter on Wed, 06/07/2017 - 5:15 pm

While official Summer of Love 50th anniversary festivities for San Francisco are still mired in licensing/permit negotiations, Dead & Company’s return engagement to the Bay Area on June 3 was a magnet for 1967-ish apparel, attitudes, smokeables, and music – the concert’s first set featured “Viola Lee Blues,” the closing tune on The Grateful Dead’s 1967 self-titled debut.
