For those that were either uninformed, asleep at the wheel, totally inept at the internet or simply busy doing other things, Yahoo! Music has now released highlights from the beautifully produced and perfectly executed “Move Me Brightly,” the Jerry Garcia tribute that was put on by Y! Music and Bob Weir’s TRI Studios.
The night featured a stellar cast of those that one would expect including most of the living members of the Grateful Dead and those associated with various side projects, but also musicians who were ranged from sort of surprising to “holy shit, really?” folks, and included: Mike Gordon (Phish), Chris Tomson (Vampire Weekend), Craig Finn and Tad Kubler (Hold Steady) and Jim Lauderdale, amongst others. There were some notable absentees, but musically, it made no difference.
Below is a setlist of what can be seen and heard in the highlight reel that has been culled from the four hour set.
To watch and read more about the evening (including a misspelling of Furthur), click here to visit Yahoo!’s (pretty stellar) attempt at being mildly cool and semi-relevant again.Â It would be much better if they had included “Bird Song” from the evening, though. But hey, this is some serious progress so nit-picking is probably not the most appropriate thing to do at this point.
