Jack Straw and Jake For Jerry
August marks both Jerry Garcia’s birthday (August 1) as well as the date of his passing (August 9). As a result, a number of individuals and events have come to fete Garcia during the month in some form or fashion. For the third consecutive year, Chicago’s Jack Straw will offer a local tribute to Garcia. This year the quartet has enlisted some assistance as Umphrey’s McGee guitarist Jake Cinninger will join in as well for the show, which will take place on August 10 at the Vic Theatre.
