Dead­heads be­ing so­cial

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ENTERTAINMENT - THE AS­SO­CI­ATED PRESS

Dead­heads look­ing to add a lit­tle more Jerry Gar­cia to their lives can now in­cor­po­rate the late Grate­ful Dead gui­tarist into their so­cial media with the video sto­ry­telling plat­form Mag­isto. And Trixie Gar­cia hopes that will turn more peo­ple on to her fa­ther’s mu­sic.

Mag­isto added a Jerry Gar­cia “edit­ing style” to its plat­form on Wed­nes­day. It al­lows users to upload photos and videos and have them mixed into a pro­fes­sion­al­look­ing pre­sen­ta­tion fea­tur­ing photos of Gar­cia and a bit from his songs. The launch co­in­cides with the CD re­lease of a 1987 con­cert by one of Gar­cia’s side projects, the Jerry Gar­cia Band.
