The Chapel Announces Grateful Dead ‘Aoxomoxoa’ & ‘Live Dead’ Tributes
San Francisco venue The Chapel will host a pair of Grateful Dead tributes to celebrate the 50th anniversary of two of the group’s iconic albums. An all-star lineup of California-based musicians will perform Aoxomoxoa in its entirety on October 28 and Live Dead in its entirety on October 29. A portion of proceeds from both concerts will go to the Rex Foundation.
Ethan Miller of Howlin Rain fame assembled a lineup for the concerts that also includes guitarist Isaiah Mitchell, keyboardist Adam MacDougall, bassist Dan Horne and drummer Austin Beede. Additionally, special guests for each show will be revealed in the weeks to come.
“Myself, the four other incredible musicians in the band and a number of exceptional guest performers are coming together to bring these records to life again and to celebrate their vast and undying energy,” says Ethan Miller. “In the performance of Aoxomoxoa it gives folks a chance to see, hear and feel something live that I’m not sure even the Dead ever fully committed to the stage in its entirety. As for Live Dead, we’re just gonna set it loose and see what happens. It’s the only way to really honor the spirit, energy and exploration of what that record accomplished. The sound and spirit of these historic albums are going to be there and then some. It’s all gonna be a party!”
