Because We Can Dept. - Celebrating the Dead 50th Anniversary

The year 2015 represents the 50th anniversary of that most American of bands, the Grateful Dead. In celebration of this, there's some high-profile reunion concerts in Santa Clara, CA and Chicago, IL in late June and early July, as well as some less high-profile celebrations happening all over the place throughout the year, including on the Internet, where JamBase is organizing a covers project of the band called "Songs of Their Own." Here's the first session featuring Anders Osborne and Luther Dickinson doing a particularly wonderful version of one of Jerry Garcia's late era classics, "Black Muddy River":

Because We Can Dept. - The Motet Does Some Funky Dead

The CORKZILLA team occasionally tries to bring you some of the random musical gems we find in our travels across the Interwebs. This crazy cross between the Grateful Dead's "Fire on the Mountain" and vintage Michael Jackson by The Motet is just such a nugget. Motet is criss-crossing the country doing funkified Dead covers - They're at Yoshi's in San Francisco on Thursday night. Check it out.
