You can still see the Grateful Dead (kind of) in Boulder tonight

Dead & Company plays its second of two shows at Boulder’s Folsom Field tonight, with tickets starting at $49.

The band is a spin-off of the Grateful Dead, with John Mayer replacing Jerry Garcia as frontman and three out of the four “core” surviving members filling out the roster.

The Grateful Dead appeared in a 1970 advertisement in Billboard Magazine for the album American Beauty. The image is in the public domain.

Still not sure what you’d be getting into? The Boulder Daily Camera has an entertaining write-up about the mischief and music of the first night’s performance.

Writes reporter John Bear: “In the bleachers, a young man wearing a Denver Broncos cap produced a bag of psychedelic mushrooms and nibbled on them slowly alongside people with nachos and personal pizzas.”

Sounds about right!
