SIRIUS XM’s Grateful Dead Channel (SIRIUS channel 32 and XM channel 57) is set to broadcast a live concert by Furthur, the rock band founded by Grateful Dead members Bob Weir and Phil Lesh. The concert will air Sunday, February 14 at 7:30pm ET, live from Cornell University’s Barton Hall. Barton Hall is the site of the long-revered Grateful Dead performance from the Spring of 1977, which some Dead Heads cite as the best ever in their long touring history.

If you’re kicking yourself because you didn’t get to see The Dead on their red-hot spring tour, you have one last chance to see them—at the Rothbury Festival in beautiful rural Michigan, on July 4. After that, it’s highly unlikely the group will perform together again in 2009, though most of the band members will all be criss-crossing America in different groups this summer.

Yikes! Bob, Rob and Jay Are Scaring the Children!

When I catch up with soft-spoken RatDog keyboardist Jeff Chimenti for our Dead.net interview, he's only been home for a couple of days, after playing with the Dead at the Penn State concert for Obama (along with the Allman Bros.), and he's just a few days away from rehearsals before RatDog's fall East Coast tour, which begins in Long Island on October 30 and goes through to a November 22 finale in Florida. He's a busy guy right now, but he wouldn't want it any other way.
