The roots of the Grateful Dead are planted in Northern California, so it should come as no surprise that Bob Weir and Wolf Bros. planned a week-long stint at the Sweetwater Music Hall in Mill Valley to kick off the band’s Spring 2020 tour.

The venue, located north of San Francisco and just eight miles or so from Terrapin Crossroads, the restaurant/venue founded by the Dead’s Phil Lesh, is as fitting a spot to launch the tour as any, and it’s where Weir and his colleagues — influential musician/producer Don Was and Jay Lane, Bay Area-based drummer who served behind the kit with Weir as part of Ratdog for more than 16 years — will begin a run of shows that will carry the group across the United States.
