Comes A Time

On September 24 a large gathering congregated at the Greek Theatre in Berkely, California to pay tribute to the late, great Jerry Garcia who died 10 years ago.

By all accounts it was a momentous occassion. In traditional Dead style, the celebration consisted of some funky jam sessions. Some of the jam scenes greatest players strapped on their instruments and laid it all out before a sold out crowd.

Nugs.net is streaming the entire show for free. I believe you have to be a registered user, but it's free and painless to register.

Click here to start streaming. I'm currently grooving to a nice rendition of Eyes of the World. It has a nice mellow groove that's perfect for the end of a work day.

The setlist consists of classic Dead tunes, sure to make everyone happy (or at least Mullins, who will probably be the only person to listen anyway).

Enjoy!

Bob is grand. His band Ratdog does some nice stuff too.

he he. The dead did tend to play for a long time. Luckily most of the time the music remained interesting.
