A Super Bowl after-party at Terrapin Crossroads in San Rafael, CA on Sunday night was the site of a collaboration between Midnight North singer/guitarist Grahame Lesh and members of Dawes. The one-set show also saw a sit-in from Grahame’s father and Grateful Dead bassist, Phil Lesh.

The LA-based folk-rockers, joined by Grahame Lesh on bass, kicked things off with “He’s Gone”. Brothers Taylor and Griffin Goldsmith, along with guitarist Trevor Menear and Grahame Lesh on bass, then launched into a cover of Bob Dylan‘s “You Gotta Serve Somebody”, which preceded the Allen Toussaint cut, “I’ll Take A Melody”. Grahame wasn’t the only Lesh to join in on the fun, however. After the Dawes original “If You Let Me Be Your Anchor”, Phil Lesh made his way to the stage.

Grahame moved to the guitar, making room for his father on bass, as the quintet began a series of Grateful Dead covers. First came “Jack Straw” before a take on “Bertha”. Taylor Goldsmith handled the lead vocals on “Shakedown Street” while the Lesh family, and Menear, backed him up.

After a run through “Deal”, Phil Lesh left the stage, leaving Dawes and Grahame to finish up with “New Speedway Boogie”.
