Bob Weir and the family of Jerry Garcia are joining forces tonight at 6:30 PST to celebrate what would be the Grateful Dead frontman's 70th birthday. The concert, titled “Move Me Brightly” will be broadcast for free in HD video from Weir’s TRI Studios in San Rafael.

The one-time only live performance will feature a diverse cast of performers, including Phish bassist Mike Gordon, Jeff Chimienti, Tom Petty and Heartbreakers’ keyboardist Benmont Tench, Jonathan Wilson and a host of others. Last week, the studio announced that indie-rockers Craig Finn and Tad Kubler of The Hold Steady, as well as Chris Tomson of the popular Vampire Weekend will also join the performance.
From indie-folk to indie-rock, Garcia has left an imprint on the minds of many contemporary artists. The show tonight is bound to have something for music lovers of all ages.
If top-notch jamming wasn’t already enough, the event will also feature exclusive interviews with some of Garcia’s contemporaries, including Marin resident Carlos Santana. David Crosby will read a tribute entitled “Cause I’m Missing Him Tonight” that he wrote specifically for the occasion. Actor Luke Wilson will take a leave of absence from Hollywood to emcee the night’s proceedings.
