Last night on Endless Boundaries you heard a live track from Ryan Adams recorded live at Stubb’s in Austin, TX that took place eight years ago to the day. The special thing about this performance was the encore in which Phil Lesh joined Adams for the Grateful Dead tunes Wharf Rat and Bird Song.
Phil happened to be playing across town at La Zona Rosa with his band (Phil and Friends) and Particle. Since both Adams and Lesh befriended each other two months earlier at the 2005 Jammy Awards in New York where they performed Wharf Rat, fans could have guessed at a possible collaboration that evening. Ryan would return the favor later in the year at Red Rocks and New Year’s Eve in San Francisco.
Relive the special moment and download Ryan Adams and The Cardinals with Phil Lesh live at Stubb’s on June 16th, 2005.
