Billy Strings will be partnering up with FANS and The Relix Channel to present The Deja Vu Experiment, a series of six unique livestreams scheduled for February 18, 19, 20, 21, 23, and 24 live from The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York. The event will coincide with the 50th Anniversary of the same dates that the Grateful Dead performed at the same venue back in 1971.
During the 1971 shows, the Grateful Dead conducted ESP Experiments, prompting Deadheads in the audience to focus on imagery shown by the band and telepathically send the imagery to a test subject.
The Deja Vu Experiment is aiming to similarly tap into a sense of clairvoyance and togetherness by asking the streaming audience to use their minds to collectively “see” and send imagery to special guest receivers.
They explain that this experiment is a bit of a “hypothesis that the collective mind has the power to tap into extrasensory perception and manifest connection” and that the livestreams will be a good way to test that theory.
Some of the proceeds from the streams will benefit The Rex Foundation and Backline, and they’ll be broadcasting TWO of the nights for free on The Relix Channel on Twitch (February 18 and 24).
