Fillmore West in San Francisco 1969

Shakedown Stream resumes the conversation this week with the Grateful Dead from 1969 at the Fillmore West in San Francisco. It was at the Fillmore West (1968) that the owner Bill Graham had his first psychedelic experience. He even played percussions with the band (This is where the real 1st cow bell came from). Previously, the Fillmore West was the Carousel Ballroom which was managed by the Grateful Dead, QuickSilver Messenger Service and Jefferson Airplane in 1968. This attempt of collaboration was an effort by the bands to manage themselves without the typical hassles.

Product Placement: The Dead Brand

The Grateful Dead's music may end up in a movie or in the background of your favorite TV shows. The Universal Music Publishing Group (UMPG) has signed a deal with Ice Nine Publishing (Grateful Dead's publishing company) that will keep the legacy of their songs in the fabric of our american culture. "Young people may know the name Grateful Dead, but not be as familiar with their music. If you're not putting yourself into relevant areas where you music can be discovered, your music could be lost to the younger generation," says Evan Lamberg, president of UMPG.

'79 Phillie Spectrum: "Long Live the Dead"

An "Evening Magazine" segment presents a snapshot of the Grateful Dead and Phillie-Heads from 1979. That's right, a somewhat old and crackly TV interview of Jerry & Bobby backstage at the Phillie Spectrum has surfaced. It seems like an archival gem because it captures a very 70s style local Phillie TV broadcast quite perfectly, but, more importantly, it is video footage that many of us have never seen before.

Mickey & Zakir

Mickey Hart will be playing with Zakir Hussain on October 12th at the SFJazz Center. The event is a tribute concert to the late Latin percussionist and Cuban-born Armando Peraza. The famed musical career of Peraza blessed him with playing with the likes of Jazz greats such as Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Dave Brubeck and Dexter Gordon. Armando Peraza passed away in April. 

Mickey is and was an amazing drummer for the Grateful Dead. He has played with many of the best percussionists from around the world. Mickey is apart of the world beat. He understands the solidarity that all drummers have with each other and it is quite fitting that he is to help memorialize one of his own. Get Tickets here
