The Grateful Dead have announced the return of the Shakedown Stream series, set to come back on June 23rd in honor of what would have been lyricist Robert Hunter‘s 80th birthday. Wednesday will see an airing of the Dead’s July 14th, 1990 concert at Foxboro Stadium in Massachusetts.

Next week’s broadcast will mark the first edition of Shakedown Stream in 2021, with the last installment airing on October 30th, 2020. The previously unreleased show features a highly relevant “Shakedown Street” opener as the Dead unwittingly chug down to the tracks to the end of the Brent Mydland era. The lyrics of the keyboardist’s fiery “Far From Me”, “this is my last song for you,” rang eerily prescient as he would die only 12 days later of a drug overdose. July 14th, 1990 also features the final live rendition of Mydland’s “I Will Take You Home” lullaby.

The June 23rd celebration of Robert Hunter’s 80th birthday will feature hosts David Lemieux and Gary Lambert joined by the Dead lyricist’s longtime writing partner Jim Lauderdale.

The charitable beneficiary for this week’s Shakedown Stream is 826 Valencia, which is “a long-running non-profit organization started by the acclaimed novelist Dave Eggers and friends, dedicated to encouraging and assisting under-resourced students in developing writing skills. From that one storefront, 826 has expanded to additional locations in San Francisco and chapters in 8 other U.S. cities. More info here.”

Tune in to Shakedown Stream on June 23rd to see the Grateful Dead perform at Foxboro Stadium in Foxboro, MA on July 14th, 1990.
