Throwback Thursday | 5-10-15-20


The years just keep sliding by, don’t they, you ever notice that?

We thoroughly enjoy trips down memory lane here at JamBase and the popularity of Throwback Thursday gives us a great excuse every single week. Today, we’re giving something a bit new a try in what we are calling #tbt: 5-10-15-20.

Since today’s date is June 19th, we plugged the day into the Live Music Archive search for 2009, 2004, 1999 and 1994. Unsurprisingly, we have plenty to work with. So below, feast your eyes and ears on happenings in the world of live music on this date in history at five year intervals.

2009: Yonder Mountain String Band at The Sheridan Opera House in Telluride, CO.

YMSB is joined by special guests Scott Vestal, Tim Carbone and Anders Beck throughout this show that features an acoustic/unplugged encore complete with a singalong of Phish’s “Lengthwise.”

2004: String Cheese Incident at Horning’s Hideout in North Plains, OR.

Four sets from String Cheese Incident including sit-ins from all of STS9, Jamie Janover, Aaron Holstein and Keller Williams.

1999: Gathering of The Vibes 1999 at Seaside Park in Bridgeport, CT

June 19, 1999 just so happens to be the first day of Gathering of The Vibes ’99 – so have a listen to sets from the Disco Biscuits, Strangefolk and Max Creek.

1994:  Grateful Dead at Autzen Stadium in Eugene, OR.

“Bird Song” & “Fire On The Mountain” both get taken out for a ride in this classic show from ’94.
