The Grateful Dead‘s Shakedown Stream archive concert webcast series will return this Thursday (August 27th) with the screening of the band’s Sunshine Daydream documentary around their benefit performance at the Renaissance Faire Grounds in Veneta, OR on August 27th, 1972. Similar to previous installments of the weekly webcast series, the performance will air on the Dead’s YouTube channel beginning at 8 p.m. ET.

As per tradition on the weekly series hosts David Lemieux and Gary Lambert will welcome guests in Merry Prankster Ken Babbs, and Sue Kesey (Ken Kesey‘s sister-in-law and co-owner of the Springfield Creamery) to discuss the band’s 1972 benefit performance which was meant to help raise money to save the above-mentioned yogurt shop. Babbs will hopefully share some stories of the first Acid Test parties where the band that would eventually become the Grateful Dead first began building their exploratory creative foundations and intimate relationship with fans–along with their first psychedelic experiences–in the mid-1960s.

Thursday’s webcast also marks the first Shakedown Stream since the series went on a semi-hiatus following the airing of the Tinley Park 7/21/90 show earlier this month.

The Grateful Dead’s 8/27/72 show is hailed as one of their best from the “Primal Dead” era thanks to its fantastic video and audio quality, along with some truly exceptional playing by the band on that very hot day in Oregon. Some of the stand-out performances from the 20-song benefit show included “China Cat Sunflower” > “I Know You Rider”, “Playing In The Band”, “He’s Gone”, “Bird Song”, and a very psychedelic, 30-minute “Dark Star”. A digitally remastered and re-edited official version of the film and concert album was released in 2013 on RHINO.
