We're from Pittsburgh, PA and love playing the music of the Grateful Dead. Here are a couple of videos, if you're interested. The first couple include a VERY special guest you may recognize ;0)
Blair has been talking about Tim and Nicki Bluhm is his blog posts and Tim Bluhm has recently finished a bunch of shows with Phil at Terrapin Crossroads. He also did a tour with Billy and Mickey a couple years ago. His main band, The Mother Hips from Chico, CA recently celebrated 20 years together as a band. You might remember them from their psychedelic origins playing the HORDE, Gather of The Vibes and Laguna Seca Daze festivals in the early/mid '90s.
Now The Mother Hips are giving away a free download of their 1992 debut album Back To The Grotto until May 30th at the following link:
Standout tracks are Chum, Precious Opal, This Is A Man and Hey Emilie but many of you are sure to dig the psychedelic stylings of the early Mother Hips, so give it a spin!
is that what you mean?
One Cassidy instrumental, one Brown Eyed Women, one I Will Take You Home. All by different artists.
I can find out who they were; I don't remember offhand but they were all really good!
any one see this at theaters last night? I was wondering if any one knows the name of the band that was playing before the show, from what I remember it looked like they were in a studio playing a couple dead tunes. Any help would be great!
If some of you haven't heard of Tame Impala, There an young aussie band that plays late 60's to 70's type psychedelia.
...you probably will soon. These four cool cats from Saskatoon will take over the airwaves and our ipods. Check out "Learn and Burn" and "Five Easy Pieces". A real laid back classic rock sound, greatly influenced by the Allmans, Guess Who and GOGD. I think this band will replace Nicklecrap as the biggest band from Canada. Check em out folks.
It's so refreshing to see new bands like The Jugtown Pirates(who live in Haight-Asbury) playing their hearts out on their stoop, trying to make it in the business and working extremely hard to become recognized by Gd entourage & deadheads.This is our music!! They submitted three Dead Covers tunes (I Know you Rider, Midnight Moonlight & Jack-a-Roe) in their own style. When I saw them on the Haight, they played a lot of their own music and are starting to get a good following. I wish people would listen to their tunes and help them by voting for them on YouTube. They are playing at Hopmonk in Sebastopol, Ca March 16th and opening for Poor Man's Whiskey at the Great American Music Hall April 21. They are really one of the new up and coming bands in the Bay Area & beyond.Catch the energy ! It's like when the GD started. Their website is www.thejugtownpirates.com. Hope you enjoy too. If you like what you hear, give em a vote on YouTube-Im sure they would appreciate it
moonalice. anyone who is not familiar with them should check em out. fairly new but definately has a late 60s vibe. also lets not forget 13th floor elevators, and the amboy dukes.
