Review of Dead Man Winter- Bright Lights

Here’s my review of the debut from Dead Man Winter, a rootsy rock and roll sideproject of Trampled By Turtles’ frontman Dave Simonett- http://www.jambands.com/reviews/cds/2011/08/17/dead-man-winter-bright-lights

Railroad Earth- The Jupiter and the 119

Here’s a terrific live video of Railroad Earth performing “The Jupiter and the 119,” my personal favorite from their new album.  The song bounces with infectious optimism, telling the triumphant story of the building of the first transcontinental railroad in the 19th century. 

Railroad Earth are playing at the Minnesota Zoo on August 16th.  Last time I saw them was one of the best 5 shows I have ever been too so I’m pretty excited for this one…

It may not be Jerry Garcia’s death anniversary anymore, but you don’t need a reason to share great Jerry clips, here’s a gorgeous version of Mission In The Rain, one of Jerry’s most overlooked but stunning ballads.
