Head to his website for the most up-to-date tour information.[Originally published March 15th, 2016] Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh celebrates his 80th birthday today. Originally a violinist and shortly thereafter a trumpet player, Lesh’s early interest in avant-garde music and free jazz played a major role in his unique, improvisational-laden bass sound, asserting himself in a way akin to a lead guitar player. A member of the Dead from day one, though never a prolific songwriter, Lesh still contributed tunes like “Passenger” co-written with Peter Monk, “New Potato Caboose,” “Pride Of Cucamonga,” “Unbroken Chain” and “Box Of Rain” to the beloved Dead catalog.Related: Phil Lesh 80th Birthday Shows At The Capitol Theatre Postponed Until Summer Due To Local Coronavirus OutbreakAfter the dissolution of the Dead following Jerry Garcia’s death in 1995, Lesh continued playing with Dead-offshoots in The Other Ones, The Dead, and finally, Phil Lesh & Friends, an ever-rotating cast of the jam scene’s most prolific players. Phil’s Friends over the years have included Trey Anastasio and Page McConnell of Phish, Warren Haynes, Chris Robinson, Jimmy Herring, Steve Kimock, Eric Krasno, Rob Baracco, John Scofield, Joe Russo, John Molo, Joan Osborne, Michael Kang and Bill Nershi of the String Cheese incident, and Al Schnier of moe.Four years ago, Phil & Friends featuring guitarists Warren Haynes and Eric Krasno, drummer John Molo and keyboard player Rob Barraco kicked off a three-night celebratory run at the heralded Capitol Theatre, an East Coast home away from home for Lesh. The Dead played at the Cap in Port Chester, NY a grand total of 13 times between 1970-1971, including this 11/8/70 show with an opening acoustic set on the last night of a four-night run.Grateful Dead – The Capitol Theatre – 11/8/70 [Full Show Audio]Here’s a great one as well, as the Dead kick off a six-night run at the Cap from 2/18/71 through 2/24/71. The group debuted three new songs that night, including “Bertha,” “Loser” and “Greatest Story Ever Told.”Grateful Dead – The Capitol Theatre – 2/18/71 [Full Show Audio]And the debut of “Bird Song” on the following evening.Grateful Dead – The Capitol Theatre – 2/19/71Of course, the Grateful Dead would quickly outgrow the 1,800-capacity venue, working their way up to Madison Square Garden for tens of thousands of loyal Deadheads. The long, strange trip brought Lesh back to the Cap, as promoter Peter Shapiro reopened the venue in 2012 and signed an exclusive contract with the Grateful Dead bassist. Since then, Lesh has been bringing his “friends” to the newly-restored Capitol Theatre, remaining a fan-favorite to this day.In honor of Phil Lesh’s 76th, enjoy some great videos from various formulations of Phil & Friends performing at the newly-restored Cap:Phil Lesh & Friends – “Doin’ That Rag” – 7/23/13 [Video: sgibson818]Phil Lesh & Friends – “St. Stephen” – 7/23/13[Video: sgibson818]Phil Lesh & Friends – “Eyes Of The World” – 4/12/14[Video: sgibson818]Phil Lesh & Friends – “Shakedown Street” – 11/8/14 [Video: rdeal1999]Phil Lesh & Friends – “Terrapin Station” – 11/15/14[Video: rdeal1999]Phil Lesh & Friends – “Uncle John’s Band” – 11/28/14Phil Lesh & Friends – “Scarlet Begonias” > “Fire On The Mountain” – 12/31/14 [Video: Victor Dowling]Phil Lesh & Friends – “Blue Sky” – 3/16/15last_img read more

Wall of shame

As a matter of national security, it’s simply unacceptable to perpetuate the current system in which millions of people live anonymous lives in the shadows, a system that rewards coyotes and leads to rampant exploitation. The House bill also fails to deal squarely with the key problem that bedevils local and state governments: What to do with the 10 million or so illegal immigrants living here who are intricately intertwined with their communities and the nation’s economy? It’s simply not realistic to think that the government can round up and deport these people, many of whom have children who are American citizens. Real immigration reform must include a way to bring them out of the shadows. We need to know who is living in our country, and the only way to do that is to provide a road to legitimacy. Yet the House steadfastly refused to consider including a guest-worker program, which has been endorsed by President George W. Bush, in its bill. Hopefully, when the U.S. Senate takes up the bill in January, it will have the wisdom that the House lacked to understand that it will take more than a wall of shame to reform America’s shameful and negligent immigration policies. The Republican-controlled United States House of Representatives last week took one of the most important debates of the nation’s future domestic policy, and came up with the most inadequate solution it could: Build a really big wall. The bill, the Border Protection, Antiterrorism and Illegal Immigration Control Act of 2005, calls for erecting a 698-mile border fence and harsher punishments for employers who knowingly hire illegal immigrants. It also includes pages of legislation that would tighten enforcement of border security and close loopholes allowing illegal immigrants and alien gang members to enter and stay in the United States. All of which would be fine, even necessary, as part of a comprehensive solution to the country’s immigration problems. But this is a plan that’s all stick with no carrot, and America needs both. It’s fallacy to think that enforcement alone can end illegal immigration, not when massive economic pressures will continue to lure millions of immigrants seeking a better life across the border. For immigration reform to work, it must seek to reduce illegal entries not only through stricter enforcement, but by creating sufficient opportunities for legal entry and earned citizenship. last_img read more
