As has been the case for most weeks of the COVID-19 pandemic, this weekend will bring with it marquee streaming opportunities for Grateful Dead fans looking for something to watch from home.

On Friday, May 22, the Dead‘s Shakedown Stream series will continue with Beat Club 4/21/72. Before the concert stream, Sam Cutler, the jam band’s tour manager in 1972 will be part of the preshow conversation:

We’re making this week’s Shakedown Stream an international affair with 3 continents, 4 cities, and counting (that’s where you come in, folks). By now, you’re well familiar with our favorite Canadian Mr. David Lemieux and New York’s finest Mr. Gary Lambert so we thought we’d throw an Englishman in Australia into the mix. Sam Cutler joined the Grateful Dead as tour manager for their Europe ’72 stint. He’ll be on the Shakedown Stream pre-show doling out stories from way back and setting the scene for the night’s screening of the 4/21/72 Beat Club performance.

The stream will go live at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET at the Dead’s official YouTube page:

Dead & Company, meanwhile, will tap into the vault once again on Saturday, May 23 for their One More Saturday Night series. Up for streaming this week will be a replay of the band’s show at Madison Square Garden on Halloween night, 2019, streaming at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET:
