Shakedown Stream returns to the famed Uptown Theater in Chicago for the 2nd night of a three night run of shows - Feb. 27, 1981. The Grateful Dead performed 17 shows at the Uptown. It is somewhat serendipitous that we focus on these shows. There is a petition to save the Uptown Theater in Chicago, IL.The Theater has been closed to audiences since 1981 which means the Grateful Dead may have been one of the last bands to play this place.
