The Grateful Dead tribute band known as Dark Star Orchestra just don’t seem to understand the word quit. The jam band will continue their never-ending life on the road with 13 concerts now scheduled across western U.S. throughout the month of February, the group revealed earlier this week. The month-long winter tour starts out on February 9 in Seattle, and will see the band visiting cities across Oregon, California and Nevada before wrapping the west coast leg on Feb. 24 in San Diego.
Other notable stops on the upcoming run include two nights at The Warfield in San Francisco on Feb. 16-17, right in the Grateful Dead’s backyard. Deadheads and classic rock fans all know that San Francisco was ground zero for the explosion of the counterculture in the mid-1960s, specifically around the now infamous Haight-Ashbury neighborhood.
Dark Star Orchestra have stayed busy lately, having spent much of the last 12 months touring across the country starting last fall. They spent much of this past winter and spring on the road, and are currently in the middle of a large fall North American tour, which will lead them up to their New Year’s Eve residency at Philadelphia’s Electric Factory. The band will also be celebrating the 20th anniversary of their first ever performance (11/11/97) at Albany’s Palace Theater on Nov. 11, JamBase reports.
