Grateful Dead

'Harpin' on the Dead' Streets May 2013

Seemingly a departure from Anela’s first album of Hawaiian music, "Mele from the Harp", this album acts as a vehicle for continuing to spread the Grateful Dead's mission of peace and love throughout the world. This album will be part of the Rex Foundation’s musical caravan, supporting the arts worldwide. For those who are not familiar with the Dead’s music, this is a "safe" introduction to it.

Mickey Hart Band | Fox Theater | Boulder, CO | 2/28/13 | Review

The contemporary musical universe of Mickey Hart is perfectly aligned with the cosmos. Never has his theological approach to music or pursuit of combining music sensibilities across the globe been so relevant. From the beginnings he sought out further bounds than his primary project, the American rock institution, The Grateful Dead.

Furthur | 1st Bank Center | Broomfield, CO | 2/23/2013 | Review

Do you believe in augurs? As a bookworm and English teacher, I always look for them in literature and instruct my students to do the same. Omens of good things to come and harbingers of impending doom are common tropes in fiction. But the portents woven into those narratives are intentional and premeditated – mechanisms to clue the reader in to future events. Real life is another matter entirely.
