The Grate Room at Phil Lesh’s Terrapin Crossroads venue in San Rafael, Calif. is currently undergoing a renovation and today the venue has announced a two-week gala to welcome back the refurbished “Grate Room” section of the joint. The lineups Lesh has put together are just amazing and are highlighted by four nights of The “Q” – Phil’s longest running post-Dead ensemble that features Rob Barraco, John Molo, Jimmy Herring, Warren Haynes and the Grateful Dead / Furthur bassist.
The action starts on Nov. 28th with a free bar show with Phil and Deep Dark Woods. On the 29th, Lesh will be joined by Bob Weir, Jackie Greene and other special guests. Then, on Nov. 29th – Dec. 1, Greene will open for Lesh, Weir, John Scofield, John Medeski and Joe Russo – what a fucking band. From Dec. 3 – 5, the Storytellers series will take over the venue followed by The “Q” finales.
Here’s the full details on what looks to be a ridiculous few weeks of shows…
