David Gans, the world’s preeminent archivist of The Grateful and host of “The Grateful Dead Hour” and “Tales From The Golden Road” will host a live stream of Dead and Company as well as play some Dead before, between and after the live stream.
If you can’t be there, you Might As Well get down to The Trap.
Stream starts at 7pm, so get here early and grab a table.

A David Gans “solo electric” performance is likely to consist of several elements: country-blues-style fingerpicking; loop-based improvisations created live in the moment; sweetly-sung ballads, original or borrowed; Grateful Dead songs reinterpreted to suit his voice and guitar; wry observations of the music-festival subculture and the larger world; soulful and passionate political commentary; favorites from the folk-rock canon of the last 50 years. Mix and match – it’s never the same show twice, but it’s always worth a listen.
