Right now, with our everyday way of life turned on its head as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, is the perfect time to hang out at home and refrain from doing pretty much anything else. That’s the whole point of social distancing, after all, and this weekend, Dead & Company will begin a special livestream series that they’re offering up for free to fans.
The “One More Saturday Night” series will kick off Saturday on Nugs.tv, a streaming platform that is a key component of the “jam band” scene of which Dead & Company is very much a key participant, and will launch with a Dead & Company gig from Austin, Texas in 2017:
