Dark Star Orchestra, one of the longest-running and most well-respected Grateful Dead tribute acts on the road, has announced that they will webcast their upcoming two-night run at Port Chester, NY’s storied “rock palace,” The Capital Theatre. The shows, scheduled for Friday night, May 11th, and Saturday night, May 12th, will be webcast via The Relix Channel.
The streams will begin at nightly at roughly 8 p.m. ET each night. For more information or to pre-order your Dark Star Orchestra Capitol Theatre live stream, head here. For more information about all of Dark Star Orchestra’s upcoming shows, head to the band website.
The venue was famously one of Jerry Garcia‘s favorite places to play. In November of 1970, Garcia noted,
See, there’s only two theaters, man, they are the only two places that are set up pretty groovy all around for music and for smooth stage changes, good lighting and all that – the Fillmore and the Capitol Theater. And those are the only two in the whole country. The rest of the places we play are sort of anonymous halls and auditoriums and gymnasiums and all those kinds of places.
Dark Star Orchestra’s upcoming performances include their seventh-annual Dark Star Jubilee (set to take place at the end of May) and their summer tour, which leads up to (and out of) their highly anticipated and highly significant Red Rocks debut on July 8th—40 years to the day after the Grateful Dead’s own storied Red Rocks show—where they’ll recreate 7/8/78 in its entirety.
