[3/22/23]: On Saturday, May 6th, following Dead & Company‘s headlining appearance at New Orleans Jazz Fest, DJ, producer, and multi-instrumentalist LP Giobbi will bring her Dead House project to The Howlin’ Wolf for a very special after-party. Tickets for the show—presented by Live For Live Music, GMP Live, Purple Hat Productions, and Relix—are now on sale here.
Born and raised by Deadhead parents in Eugene, OR, Giobbi began her music career as a pianist before stumbling upon the world of electronic music. When she began playing DJ sets in her parents’ vintage Grateful Dead tees, she was surprised to discover a significant overlap between the EDM and Deadhead communities. A friend then gave her some stems—individuated instrument and vocal tracks—from Grateful Dead recordings, which she began incorporating into mixes during her popular Dead House livestreams on Twitch.

She was encouraged in her efforts by Bob Weir‘s manager when the two were both booked to play a livestream benefit for Backline, and eventually went on to play a Dead House DJ set at Dead & Company’s Playing In The Sand destination event earlier this year. Days after her set at Playing In The Sand, LP Giobbi released Garcia (Remixed), a collection of dance remixes of the eight tracks on Jerry Garcia‘s 1972 solo album in celebration of its 50th anniversary.
