Grateful Dead Members Open Venues In California
Bob Weir and Phil Lesh back live music
Rolling Stone reports that both Phil Lesh and Bob Weir are to open music venues in California, with Lesh opening a mixed-use performance space called Terrapin Crossroads in San Rafael, Calif and Weir re-opening the Sweetwater Music Hall in the Bay Area community of Mill Valley.
"Marin County used to be a real hub for music,” Weir tells Rolling Stone. "It was a hotbed for music. And I miss that. And Phil misses that. And we’re trying to bring that kind of consciousness back to Marin County. The music kind of disappeared from Marin about 20 years ago when people stopped going to clubs and stuff because everybody got married and had kids. Well, now those kids are growing up and they’re going to be playing in the clubs, so I think it’s going to happen again.”
