The American Beauty Project
There's a pretty interesting show going on here in NYC in January that I just learned about. Entitled The American Beauty Project, the show will pay tribute to the Grateful Dead's two Americana-oriented albums from 1970, American Beauty and Workingman's Dead.
The show will be presented for free over two days (Jan. 20-21) under the glass atrium of the Winter Garden at the World Financial Center, and will feature, among others, Jay Farrar, Mark Eitzel, Tim O'Reagan, Jorma Kaukonen, Dar Williams and many more, performing songs from the two Dead albums.
I may be an indie kid these days, but I'm still a huge Dead fan at heart, and this sounds like it should be very cool. For more information check out the project's MySpace page.
