Weekend Webcasts: Lollapalooza / Newport Jazz / Garcia Tribute

God bless Al Gore for giving us the ability to watch a shit-ton of live music this weekend on his blessed interwebs. With webcasts from the Newport Jazz and Lollapalooza festivals, as well as a Jerry Garcia tribute set to stream from Bob Weir’s TRI Studios, there’s plenty of FREE options for our readers to choose from so we thought we’d lay them out for you.

Move Me Brightly: A Tribute to Jerry Garcia @ TRI Studios

 

And last but certainly not least, Bob Weir’s TRI Studios will host what’s sure to be an amazing webcast called Move Me Brightly: A Tribute to Jerry Garcia which brings together some of our favorite musicians such as Mike Gordon from Phish, guitarist Neal Casal, The Hold Steady’s Craig Finn and Tad Kubler to perform a mix of Grateful Dead tunes and songs from Garcia’s solo repertoire. The action starts tonight at 6:30PM PT. Actor Luke Wilson will host. Our friends at Rolling Stone, Relix and Jambands.com have talked to many of the participants which has gotten us even more excited.
