Comes a Time: Tribute to Jerry

Update: Rolling Stone has a blurb up about it.

Since I can’t think of a proper opening paragraph to this post, let me just say this: I’m extremely jealous of those fortunate enough to have attended this weekend’s Comes a Time tribute to Jerry Garcia.

For those of you who may not have heard about this, the night’s festivities included former Dead members Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, Bill Kreuztmann, Donna Jean Godchaux and Bruce Hornsby, along with Trey Anastasio, Warren Haynes, Gloria Jones, Jackie LaBranch, David Nelson, Sandy Rothman, Melvin Seals, Patti Smith, members of the String Cheese Incident — Jason Hann, Michael Kang, Keith Moseley and Billy Nershi — and Ratdog members Kenny Brooks, Jeff Chimenti, Mark Karan, Jay Lane and Robin Sylvester.

And apparently it didn’t disappoint. If anyone who reads this was there and wouldn’t mind posting some thoughts in the comments section below, please enlighten us. We’d love to hear from you.
