Earlier in the year, Colorado deadheads mourned the permanent closing Quixote’s True Blue, a bar and dual-stage music venue in Denver. However, happier news was right around the bend, with Jay Bianchi, the former owner of Quixote’s, opening the Be On Key Psychedelic Ripple earlier this month. For their New Years run, the newly opened venue is serving as home base for Melvin Seals and the Jerry Garcia Band. Melvin Seals and JGB were joined by Flash Mountain Flood, who opened for the first two nights of the runs, and who played the 2:30-4:30 AM slot to welcome in 2017. You can get a little preview of the space and hear what the Melvin and JGB have cookin’ up in videos of “My Sisters and Brothers” and “Sugaree” below, courtesy of Kelly Pearson.
