Rhythm Devils, Modern Lovers Ride the 70 Volt Parade
In the current issue of Relix , Trey Anastasio talks at great length about his recent experience playing the Comes a Time Jerry Garcia tribute, citing a conversation with Bill Kreutzmann as particularly inspiring. On Friday, Anastasio had another chance to talk shop with the Grateful Dead drummer when 70 Volt Parade rolled through San Franciscos Warfield Theater . During Anastasios second set, Kreutzmann and his Rhythm Devil partner Mickey Hart emerged for a number of Grateful Dead chestnuts including Iko Iko, Going Down The Road Feeling Bad, Eyes Of The World, and Casey Jones. A night later, another one of Anastasios greatest influences, Talking Heads guitarist Jerry Harrison, emerged for Jonathan Richmans Roadrunner. In 2000, Phish covered Roadrunner shortly before slipping into its two-year hiatus. Harrison also performed Roadrunner regularly in his pre-Heads days as a member Richmans Modern Lovers.
