Back on Dec. 1st the Rex Foundation threw a benefit at The Fillmore in San Francisco to honor the memory of former Grateful Dead manager Jon McIntire. Members of ALO kicked off the memorable night of music, followed by a Bob Weir solo acoustic set and a performance by The Mickey Hart Band with Widespread Panic’s Dave Schools. Today, a compilation of tracks culled from that night dubbed “A Buck Dancer’s Choice” is available for download at nugs.net and iTunes, and on CD at nugs.net .
Here’s the tracklisting and more information on the compilation:
