Jerry Garcia’s Website Just Got A Lot More Interesting

JerryGarcia.com got a huge makeover last night, thanks to digital design agency Critical Mass. The relaunched version of the website allows fans to follow all of Garcia’s musical endeavors on a timeline, as well as seamlessly discover or relive nearly 4,000 shows (complete with setlists and direct links to Archive.org for easy access).

Fans can also use the new site to follow ten different tours, —the Grateful Dead’s Spring 1970, Europe 1972, Summer 1974, Summer 1976, Spring 1977 and Summer 1988, Spring 1990 and Fall 1993 tours and the Jerry Garcia Band’s Fall 1989 and Fall 1993 tours.

The site has had some help from Garcia’s family, who contributed numerous photos, ticket stubs and original Jerry Garcia artwork to bring users a complete Garcia experience. Critical Mass is expected to roll out a second phase of redesign ,which will offer fans a virtual “Parking Lot” where they can connect with each other and share their own unique experiences with Garcia and his various projects.

My connection to Garcia’s music continues 35 years after my first Grateful Dead show. The friendship amongst deadheads, the many hours of sweet dancing bliss, the incomparable musical rhythms and stories have been integral to my life. There is a sweet sadness as I look back on this, and my aging deadhead brain just wants to say, “thanks” to everyone who keeps the music happening. All love.

It all rolls into one, and nothing comes for free. There’s nothing you can hold for very long…
