A number of Vermont musicians celebrated Jerry Garcia and the Grateful Dead at Burlington, VT’s Club Metronome last night. The show was the 18th edition of Club Metronome’s weekly Dead Set series. Cats Under the Stars, a Jerry Garcia Band tribute act, served as the evening’s house band. Phish drummer Jon Fishman and Trey Anastasio Band drummer Russ Lawton played side by side throughout the entire set. Guitarist Mihali Savoulidis, of the rising Vermont band Twiddle, also performed during the show.
The entire performance was broadcast on USTREAM.

As expected, a few additional guests sat in during the night. Longtime Phish collaborator and onetime Trey Anastasio band saxophonist Dave “The Truth” Grippo took the stage for “Row Jimmy” and “Bird Song.” Phish archivist Kevin Shapiro, who regularly performs with the Vermont Dead Sessions tribute project, took over for Lawton on “New Speedway Boogie.”

Club Metronome is Nectar’s upstairs performance space. Phish played their first bar gig in the performance area in 1984.
