Artist Info

Grateful Shred

Wait – I know what you’re thinking. Another fucking Grateful Dead cover band?
Really?
The thing is, Los Angeles-based Grateful Shred manage to channel that elusive Dead vibe: wide-open
guitar tones, effortless three-part vocal harmonies, choogling beats, and yes, plenty of tripped out,

Shredded solos. The look, the sound, the atmosphere. It’s uncanny. Far from being a historical re-
enactment, Grateful Shred’s laissez faire vibe infuses the band with a gentle spirit, warmth, and (dare

we say it) authenticity. From their killer merch game to their eminently watchable YouTube channel,
they’re clearly having a rad time and spreading the love. Strangely enough, in a world overflowing with
wax museum nostalgia and Deadly sentimentalism, we need the Shred, now more than ever.

Jeffrey Lewis

Indie-rock songwriter and comix artist Jeffrey Lewis began recording homemade cassettes in New York City in 1998; his critically acclaimed, unusual and word-dense songs lead to Jeffrey signing to Rough Trade Records in 2001. Many albums and comic books later, Jeffrey still lives in NYC and has played hundreds of gigs all over the world, both solo and with bandmates, habitually assembling different set lists for each night to weave in old songs, new songs, artwork, stories and surprises. His most recent official album is “Jeffrey Lewis & The Voltage: Bad Wiring” released on Don Giovanni Records (USA) and Moshi Moshi Records (internationally) in November 2019 (garnering rave reviews), but Jeffrey has also digitally self-released three DIY albums from his apartment since the pandemic started. Jeffrey continues to wring folksy spiel and garage bohemianism from his ramshackle guitar, whether with his band or solo, while sometimes incorporating his often politically subversive visual artwork and cartoons into live appearances.  Some of these audio/visual projects have been hosted on History.com, such as “The Story of Sitting Bull,” a Jeffrey Lewis illustrated songwhich won a Webby Award in 2011 for “Best Writing on the Internet.”
