Furthur Experiments at Bob Weir’s TRI Studios

Last night, Furthur graced the stage of Bob Weir’s brand new, state of the art, Tamalpais Research Institute (aka TRI Studios) for the first time. The Marin County-based studio’s second ever live performance was webcast in real time with HD audio and video through its website for just under $20. “It sounds better than the best of clubs, and it’s in your living room. It’s a new kind of concert experience,” Weir recently told The Marin Examiner in an interview.

Over the course of nearly two hours, Furthur performed a single, flowing set packed with multiple highlights in what was dubbed “Furthur Experiments at TRI.” The results of the experiment seemed positive, aside from a few brief issues with the stream.

In addition, New York’s Brooklyn Bowl hosted a free “BOWLcast” with the TRI webcast displayed on large projection screens throughout the venue. Coincidentally, Brooklyn native Joe Russo could be seen sporting a Brooklyn Bowl t-shirt throughout the webcast. Following the performance, TRI issued this statement, “We thank everyone that supported us for ‘Furthur experiments at TRI.’ For all you that bought the show lookout for a special announcement tomorrow.”
