The Dead Bust Out Rarities and Old Favorites On Latest Trek

For their recent reunion tour, their first as the Dead since 2004, the band formerly known as the Grateful Dead has been digging deep into their catalog. The tour, now 13 nights into a 23 date run, is being scrutinized and memorialized on, where fans have been dissecting set lists and David Lemieux, the band’s audiovisual archivist, has been providing historical context for the band’s latest jaunt (you can also view photos and download each show shortly after it takes place). It’s all fascinating stuff (look for a report on the 4/24 Uniondale show in the upcoming issue of American Songwriter.)
