Midnight North has found its way back to the road for a 2024 winter tour, which kicked off on Wednesday at  Soundcheck Studios in Pembroke, MA.

Joining Midnight North as support for the tour opener was local Grateful Dead tribute act Playing Dead. Midnight North singer/guitarist Grahame Lesh, son of Dead bassist Phil Lesh, even came out for a “Hard To Handle” cover with the opening band before playing a set of his own original music. Lesh and Midnight North still made sure to tip their cap to the Grateful Dead with a take on “Cold Rain & Snow” to close out the single-set performance.
