Phil Lesh Brings Things Full Circle at Terrapin Crossroads Closing
Phil Lesh closed out the initial run of shows at his new San Rafael, CA venue Terrapin Crossroads’ Grate Room on April 1. In addition to Lesh on bass, last night’s incarnation of Phil & Friends included his son Grahame Lesh, Levon Helm Band members Larry Campbell and Teresa Williams, drummer Jaz Sawyer, RatDog/Furthur keyboardist Jeff Chimenti and singer/songwriter Jackie Greene. Bringing things full circle from when he opened the venue’s Grate Room on March 17, Lesh and his band encored with “Terrapin Station.” As previously reported, Phil & Lesh & Friends kicked off their run in the Grate Room with the Dead classic. Lesh also treated fans to the rare early Grateful Dead song “Can’t Come Down,” which the dropped its its repertoire way back in 1966.
As we confirmed earlier today, Lesh will reunite his classic Phil & Friends Quintet for a series of shows at Terrapin Crossroads from April 26-29.
