There's a fair chance you might not have heard of American cartoonist Paul Pope, but like the superheroes he brings to life, he's been steadily rising up from anonymity for well over 20 years now.

A Closer Look At The Art Of Penabranca

It's quite rare to get a guided tour of a gallery by the artist himself! We're pleased to introduce Brooklyn-based Brazilian Visual Artist Penabranca aka Bruno Borges who created the artwork for our Circles Around The Sun release and even more delighted that he decided to share a few of his diverse works with us firsthand.

Talkin' 30 Trips With Nicholas Meriwether

It's a tall order to take on writing up any year in Grateful Dead history, but to attempt to tell their complete story...godspeed! We called UC Santa Cruz Grateful Dead Archivist Nicholas Meriwether to task for this one and the result is either the shortest book or the longest liner notes you'll find on the Dead.


Dave's Picks 2015 Artist-in-Residence Micah Nelson gives us a little insight into his unconventional upbring (yes, the one and only Willie is his dad) and into how he juggles his time between painting, animating, and playing in not one, not two, but three bands(!) in this e

She may be best known as a dancer and a poet, but it was her artwork that first piqued our interest in Jessica Dessner.

All In The Family: Justin Kreutzmann

Remembering Owsley "Bear" Stanley

Owsley "Bear" Stanley died in a car crash in Australia on March 13. Few who knew him would have been surprised if he had chosen to live forever. He managed better than most other people to bend reality to suit his wishes and beliefs.
