With the presidential race heating up in America, one candidate has been embraced by the live music/jam community more than others: Bernie Sanders. Interestingly, it seems the Sanders family has some love for the community as well, as Sanders’ wife Jane O’Meara Sanders recently spoke about being a fan of the Grateful Dead and Phish, and even attending the Woodstock Festival, in an interview with Bloomberg.At first glance, that information is enough to make even the casual fan grin. “From Woodstock To White House?” – certainly an eye-catching headline, but a closer look at the episode of “With All Due Respect” shows a more amateur side to the fandom of Mrs. Sanders.When asked about Woodstock, Sanders recalls: “Listening to the music was unbelievable, but what was fun was they had—it was raining all the time so everyone was jumping in the mud, it was fantastic.” The hosts ask for her favorite musical moment from the experience, and she says that there were just too many to count. Fair enough. The festival was 47 years ago, and Mrs. Sanders definitely gets some street cred for being there.The hosts then ask her about her taste in music, and she replies that she likes the Grateful Dead “and now Phish.” They ask how many Grateful Dead shows she’s been to, and Sanders replies that she had kids early in life and never got a chance to see the band perform live. “A Deadhead who hasn’t seen The Dead,” they muse.It gets even rougher, as Mrs. Sanders struggles to identify what her favorite Grateful Dead song is. The hosts wind up helping her out, offering up “Ripple” and “Truckin’” before she recognizes the latter by its name. Phew. She explains that remembering song names was never her cup of tea.All in all, however, things could be much worse. At least the Sanders family isn’t listening to Nickelback.

Load remaining images Last weekend, festival fans flocked to the Candler Park Music Festival for two rhythm filled days of music. With performances from Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Keller Williams’ Grateful Grass, Galactic, Yonder Mountain String Band, The Revivalists, Charles Bradley & His Extraordinaires and more, Candler Park featured some of the best tunes around the Atlanta area. The small festival continues to grow, and fans could not be more enthusiastic about being on the scene; of course, the great music throughout always helps!Thanks to photographer Billy Heigl, we have a full gallery of images to share. Check them out below.
“Phish Lot” is the smorgasbord of humans; you have the business men, the hippies, the frat boys, their younger brothers; you’ve got the free-spirited dancers and you’ve got the all-star winners of “Colorado’s Big Game Trophy Wook Hunters.” It’s quite special to see these many worlds merge in the spirit of music appreciation, and to stand harmoniously side-by-side with the many creatures of the world.We started the series, “Funniest Things Overheard,” back at the Grateful Dead’s 50th Anniversary shows, (which was coincidentally one year ago today), and continued the note-taking at Magnaball and Lockn’ last summer. In the spirit of “Summer Tour” and three-day holiday weekends, we collected some of the best things we overheard at Phish‘s weekend at SPAC. Enjoy!“One day you’re smoking your first joint, the next you’re at a Phish show.”“Are you the hero that sold me Jell-O shots and got me really fucked up?” “Nope.”“This is what it feels like if your life took a bad turn.”“Did I tell you how I literally snuck a joint past security in my beard?”“He’s got the look but not the wook.”“Is Trey wearing a deep V?”“Do you have any peanut butter for this fucking jam right now?”“That’s the kind of guy that took a thousand hits of acid.”“One marijuana please?”“There’s literally a bottle of tequila inside of me right now.”“I saw that cop from one thousand miles away.”“Twiddle is just a Phish cover band that doesn’t play Phish songs.”“And the lawn goes wild!”“…Just trying to get the acid out of my teeth!”“I NEED to give you love.”“How many times have you been to jail?” “Threef.”Overheard hippies taking unknown drugs: “I wretch and I gag a little bit but it’s all part of the fun.”“I keep thinking this guy is with security but he is very much not.”“He’s a wook in sheep’s clothing.”“Is this pot?” “No it’s roofies, but they’re gluten free.”“Let’s say there is a huge acid head, let’s call her Dana.. And she’s lost in the woods and ingested like 30 tabs. She encounters a mother bear while lost in the woods who eats her entirely to protect her kids from the acid monster (Dana). Does that bear then trip on acid because he consumed Dana?”“Well actually, the most popular, most sold dildo in the world is 6 and a half inches. So….”“I swear I’ve both bagged and tagged that man before.”Exiting the venue: “This is the burrito line right?”Grand Union Motel: “This is a cautionary motel.”“I forgot my husband’s name.” “Where we at, a 2nd grade birthday party?” “I can’t fall asleep anywhere without being bagged and tagged… especially by my bandmates.”“I’ll wait in this line till the clowns come home!”Lee’s Campground: “It’s like Lee-et-nam up in this bitch.”“This shit is like PHISH TOUR 2016 all over again.”“I’m currently where wooks go to die.”“It smells like Bassnectar farted in an old quesadilla.”“No ducks, no deal.”[Updated with contributions from PHISH TOUR 2014 group and L4LM Facebook Page]

Edit this setlist | More Various Artists setlists Last year, dozens of artists joined together for a massive tribute to Jerry Garcia. Dubbed “Dear Jerry,” it seemed that just about everyone imaginable was on hand to pay tribute to the great Garcia. That is, except Warren Haynes.The guitarist was on tour with Gov’t Mule in Europe last year, though any Haynes fan knows he’s been a vital part of the Grateful Dead legacy in recent years. Whether it’s performing with The Dead, or Phil Lesh & Friends, or even leading a Symphonic Tribute to Jerry Garcia at Red Rocks, few carry the torch of Garcia’s music more aptly than Mr. Haynes.Warren Haynes Talks Gov’t Mule’s Beginnings, New Album & The “Magical” Red Rocks PerformanceLast night, Haynes got to redeem himself at Dear Jerry 2: Jerry Uncovered at D.A.R. Consitution Hall in Washington, D.C., playing with an all-star band that included Alison Krauss, John Medeski, Don Was, Jamey Johnson and Raymond Weber. Together, the band worked through staples of Garcia’s career, songs that were played in the Grateful Dead or Jerry Garcia Band.Fortunately, Garcia’s Facebook page shared a number of great videos from the performance for us to enjoy.Stop That TrainSing Me Back HomeRoadrunnerMidnight MoonlightAfter MidnightTo Lay Me Down / Not Fade AwayHaynes will head over to Fairfax, VA to perform a full show recreation of an October 1986 Jerry Garcia Band performance with The Avett Brothers. The full setlist from last night’s show can be seen below.
Phil Lesh is celebrating Halloween with a three night run at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY. The Grateful Dead bassist kicked things off last night with Luther Dickinson on guitar, Larry Campbell on guitar, mandolin, and vocals, Barry Sless on guitar and the pedal steel, along with drummer John Molo, keyboardist Jason Crosby, and vocalists Teresa Williams and Nicki Bluhm. The Dead tunes were in full force, with the female vocalists trading harmonies throughout the night. An 18+ minute version of Cream‘s “Crossroads” took the cake for the most powerful jam of the evening, followed by the encore’s 16-minute “Turn On Your Lovelight.”Thanks to taper CTDave, you can listen to the full show’s audio below:The show will go on tonight, with Scott Metzger, Luther Dickinson, Barry Sless, Jason Crosby, John Molo and Nicki Bluhm.

Earlier this year, a mural went up on the same street corner. The significance of the mural, outside of being a beautiful tribute to Tribe and “hip-hop hieroglyphics” as mural co-organizer Theron Smith calls it, is that it is also where the group filmed the video for “Check The Rhime” in ’91, on top of the Nu-Clear Dry Cleaners laundromat roof. “Check The Rhime” – Back in the day on the boulevard of Linden….a tribe called quest – check the rhime-ddc-720p-x264 from Jermane Hollinsworth on Vimeo.[H/T Pitchfork / Photos via @geedg] A Tribe Called Quest is in the midst of a huge and final comeback. Just over a week ago, they released their final masterpiece:We got it from Here…Thank You 4 Your service with plans for one ultimate world tour. The album was conceived when the group reunited in 2014, and it was no surprise to see it released just three days after the Presidential election. Race and social injustice are main themes of the new album, addressed with the lyrical eloquence for which ATCQ is known. This new record features recorded verses from Phife Dawg, who passed away earlier this year.Last week, remaining members of the group Q-Tip, Jarobi White, and Ali Shaheed Muhammad played a tribute performance on Saturday Night Live, and this week, the memorials continue. At the corner of Linden Boulevard and 192nd Street in Queens, NY, Phife Dawg has been immortalized in form of a street sign. Linden Boulevard is now also known as Malik “Phife Dawg” Taylor Way.Friends and family were all there for the momentous occasion, including Jacobi who commented, “[People] get murals and tributes to them all over the place… but to have a mural on the very block, the very street that we walked every day? Wrote rhymes up and down this block, battle people, have people come from other neighborhoods to battle me and Phife—you know, all kinds of stuff.”
Sparked by fan interest for a sort of day-in-the-life feature, The Drunken Hearts put together a short video they’re calling “The Drunken Setup,” which features the pre-show happenings of a band on the road.
