On several levels, this is pretty cool. What’s left of the Grateful Dead will play today at the inauguration of Barack Obama. See See Relix Magazine’s article - The Dead to Perform at Obama Inauguration. I’ll be in class all day, but I sure hope to catch this!
It turns out this story is a good excuse to update all my PowerShell scripts that I use to manage my Grateful Dead/Jerry Garcia archive. I’ve got getting on for a 1.5 terabytes of live shows by The Grateful Dead and Jerry Garcia (in his many incarnations as a solo act apart from the Dead). I developed a few scripts in the .MSH days and I need to dust them off and update them.
Time for a DEADHEAD Module? :-)
