Eric Brewer & Friends 'Dead' Set On a Good Show at the Rook
It's gonna get downright trippy when Brewer & Friends present the rare treat of a full Dead set
Saturday, Mar. 24
Anyone acquainted with today's live jam scene knows that Grateful Dead covers — though most always welcomed with open arms and happy feet — can come out at just about a dime a dozen (more Shakedown, anyone?).
It's a rarer thing, though, when a band that really gets it can really nail the soul and sonic complexity that the great granddaddies of the jam generation tapped (and still tap) into. Enter Eric Brewer & Friends, the fantastic local guitarist and his collective of phenomenal musicians who most definitely have the chops to do the Dead, and do it right.
It's gonna get downright trippy when Brewer & Friends present the rare treat of a full Dead set (following the treat of a full set of originals) at the King's Rook. To tie it all together, Erie-based jamband-centric DJ Necco will be spinning in the upstairs lounge both before and after the main event.
Tell me this town ain't got no heart.
