Dead Night w/ John Barlow

Grateful Dead Night w/ John Perry Barlow :: 4/15 :: 12 Galaxies

John Perry Barlow
On Tuesday, April 15 come down to San Francisco's 12 Galaxies for Grateful Dead Night. The evening will feature Dead lyricist, John Perry Barlow talking, telling stories, discussing current events and possibly a Q & A session with the audience. Barlow has written lyrics for many of your favorite Grateful Dead/Bob Weir songs such as "Cassidy," "Let It Grow," "Estimated Prophet," "Music Never Stopped," "Hell in A Bucket," "Lost Sailor," "Saint of Circumstance" and many, many more. His lyrics from "Throwing Stones" or "We Can Run" are as relevant today as the day they were written.

This night will also feature an acoustic set or two from Stu Allen (JGB/Melvin Seals/Workingman's Ed) & Pat Nevins (Workingman's Ed/Ragged Glory) covering Jerry, Neil, Graham Parsons, etc... For those who missed them last time, they played an "Acoustic Crazy Fingers" that was especially sweet to hear. There's a reason Stu Allen plays guitar for Melvin Seals & JGB.

Also set to help out is legendary Grateful Dead/Legion of Mary/Jerry Garcia Band/Reconstruction engineer-producer Betty Cantor-Jackson ("Betty Boards") to help mix sound and just be there in support of Dead Night.

The evening will end with a selection of music from Dark Star Dan's personal archive. Entrance is $7 at the door.

I have reason to believe that one of John Perry Barlow's daughters was actually fathered by Bob Weir. Look at the one on the right and tell me you don't see a resemblance to Bobby.!medium.jpg

NICE!! I saw Stu Allen this past new years eve with Melvin Seals and JGB and they were seriously tight. I know some will not give them props calling them nothing more than a JGB cover band, but they tore it up. I'm too young to have seen the grateful dead or JGB, but my friend who caught countless dead/jgb shows from the 1990 era could not believe how much he sounded like jerry in early 90's when he was on fire. stu seemed really personable, hanging out after the show. Oh, and melvin still has amazing energy radiating super-duper-steller-vibes. If I lived in CA instead of MT I would love to catch this evening! -cheers
