The golden age of rock ’n’ roll may be over if you’re looking at the Billboard charts, but the Bay Area remains a hub for icons that keep the timeless vibe alive. Phil Lesh created Phil Lesh and Friends
for this very purpose: to pay homage to the Grateful Dead’s music by playing originals, common covers and songs from the members of his band. Back from their tour in New York and performing again at home in Lesh’s own spot, Lesh, Warren Haynes, Jimmy Herring, John Molo, Jeff Chimenti and Neal Casal perform Wednesday—Saturday, Dec 4—7, at Terrapin Crossroads. 100 Yacht Club Drive, San Rafael. 8pm. $79. 415.524.2773.
