Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart will appear as the special guest on the pre-show for this week’s Shakedown Stream. Hart’s visit is scheduled for 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT this Friday, July 31 before an airing of Rocking The Cradle and The Vacation Tapes documenting the band’s 1978 visit to Egypt.

Rocking The Cradle features video from the Grateful Dead’s September 16, 1978 concert at the Giza pyramid complex in Giza, Egypt — which was the second of two performances held at the site. The Vacation Tapes contains 15 minutes of footage from home movies capturing the band’s experience in Egypt. The release of Rocking The Cradle in 2008 included The Vacation Tapes.
