Every February, Dead.net holds a celebration of the music of the Grateful Dead by hosting a leaderboard and playlist of videos of musicians covering the Dead's songs. This year, the theme is Europe 72, in celebration of its 50th anniversary. Raising The Dead has participated in this for a few years, and this time we've submitted two entries. The first, Tennessee Jed from our gig at Little Caesars Arena, has consistently been a top video this year, moving between ranks 4 and 5 on their YouTube playlist. Half way through the month, Dead.net emailed an update and requested more takes on Bertha, Sugar Magnolia, and Morning Dew. We have a fantastic take on Dew from our performance at the Tangent Lounge on 11-12-2021, but the video from that night isn't great. So we've paired a visualizer that follows the music and submitted that as well.
Every watch of these videos increases their rank among the more than 1,400 videos submitted so far - give them a listen and a like (and hit subscribe if you haven't yet) and help our takes hit the top of the playlist. Thanks!

Help On The Way! A big crowd of appreciative fans rolled away the dew with us in the second of our two-night stand at Otus Supply. We were joined once again by Justin Lee from Dead at the Winery and Jake Wolf from Colorado's Sages and Spirits. Part of the reason Jake decided to wheel to the storm and fly to Detroit was the promise to play the last few songs in the Dead catalog he'd never done - and we did them all! Blues for Allah and King Solomon's Marbles were both checked off Jake's bucket list as part of our performance of the jazziest album in the Dead's catalog Saturday night.
The evening started with a funky Stranger, and kicked into the album with the classic tryptich Help>Slip>Frank. After a quick breath, we launched into King Solomon's Marbles at the speed of (not-so-lazy) lightning, showing off the percussive thunder only possible with two master skinsmen playing off each other. Crowd favorites The Music Never Stopped and Crazy Fingers followed, respectively funky and reggae-tinted. Dave grabbed his acoustic guitar for a solo rendition of Sage and Spirit, and our sound man Chris Hines turned up the vocal reverb for the psychedelic modalism of the titular Blues for Allah. We capped the set with a rockin' One More Saturday Night, and a reminder that the evening was far from over.
Having accomplished a musical goal we'd set over 2 months ago, we slid into a crazy fun second set - Scarlet > Fire > Dark Star > Playin' > Drums > Space > Unbroken Chain > Wharf Rat > Around and Around! How about that? We called an audible and encored with Shakedown>Playin' Repise, ending at about 12:45 Sunday morning. If you check out the song times, every song in that second set (if you count Drums>Space as one and add Playin' and it's reprise) was over 10 minutes. We can say with certainty that everyone who came for a great show that night got their wish!
We've published really great sounding audience recordings of both Friday and Saturday's shows to our Archive.org page (or in the player below). Check them out to relive the show or to see what you missed - and if you did miss it, don't make that mistake again! We got a great video of the show, and rumor has it that Jake took the board tapes back to Colorado to mix down with Dark Star Orchestra's Rob Eaton. Make sure you're subscribed to our YouTube channel so you don't miss them!
