There's a common thread here, we promise! Deadheads across the good ol' U.S. of A. will be gathering next week to celebrate Cornell. Headed to JazzFest? On May 7, Voodoo Dead featuring Steve Kimock, Jackie Greene, George Porter Jr., Jeff Chimenti (of Dead & Co.), JM Kimock, Oteil Burbridge, and Papa Mali will be performing "A New Orleans Tribute" to the legendary show. In the Tri-State area? On May 8, The State Theatre of Ithaca presents "The 40th Anniversary Celebration of Barton Hall, 5/8/77" and The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester's hosting "5-8-77 Revisited - A Grateful Dead Dance Party." It might take a miracle but if you are in the Bay Area, you still have time to hunt down a ticket to hear Phil Lesh & The Terrapin Family Band performing Barton Hall in full, Wednesday, May 10th at Terrapin Crossroads.
