The Grateful Dead’s fifth album, ‘Workingman’s Dead’ was a critical turning point for the band as it showcased a newfound love of Crosby, Stills and Nash-style harmonies, fused with their own infamous hybrid of country and bluegrass. Not to be outdone with financial and legal woes, their response was to record something different than normal with the songs taking on a more narrative style reflecting on such incidents as Altamont and the tumultuous end of the love generation. The less electric but more acoustic approach established a new era for The Dead ultimately creating some of the band’s most recognizable songs and definitive sound.

The session will run from 4 to 6:30 pm at Baby’s All Right, a restaurant and live event venue at 146 Broadway, Williamsburg – Brooklyn. Attendees are encouraged to arrive earlier than normal to enjoy Jesse Jarnow’s “Dead Brunch”, a musical feast of Grateful Dead bootlegs and officially released recordings which takes place in the main dining
area beginning at noon.
