Jerry Garcia will be the focus of Daze Between, a special nine-day marathon of online programming scheduled to begin on Saturday, Aug. 1 — Garcia’s birthday.

The Grateful Dead legend may have passed away in 1995, but there’s no disputing that his legacy lives on and has only grown bigger in the years since.

Daze Between will incorporate exclusive live stream performances, “storytelling,” a live auction and more, all benefiting the Rex Foundation, a non-profit started by the Dead and their families in 1983.

Obviously, the programming will include archival performances from the Grateful Dead and off-shot projects such as Dead and Company and Bob Weir & the Campfire Band among other acts. Most of the streams will be available on Nugs.net, YouTube and Facebook Live.

The full daily schedule of events is rather overwhelming, to be honest, and is available at the official Daze Between website.

The programming for Monday, Aug. 3 will go up on YouTube at 6 p.m. EDT/3 p.m. PDT:
