KEEP TRUCKIN’ NORTH FOR DEAD’S AR­CHIVES

Los Angeles Times - - YOUR WEEKEND -

Tune in and turn on (no need to drop out) at the UC Santa Cruz Grate­ful Dead Ar­chive.

Why: Since 2008, the history of this Cal­i­for­nia band has been in the hands of UC Santa Cruz’s McHenry Li­brary, and the pub­lic can look and lis­ten.

What: Start at the Dead Cen­tral ex­hibit room, which through Dec. 23 has a dis­play on the band’s busi­ness prac­tices, “Put Your Gold Money Where Your Love Is, Baby: Coun­ter­cul­ture, Cap­i­tal­ism, and the Grate­ful Dead.” Don’t miss the sculp­ture of gui­tarist Jerry Gar­cia’s hand, miss­ing part of a fin­ger. Then visit Spe­cial Col­lec­tions, where more Dead trea­sures, in­clud­ing a tiedyed T-shirt, are on dis­play. The ar­chive’s dig­i­tal mu­sic col­lec­tion (more than 10,000 con­cert record­ings, most made by fans) is avail­able online. Info: Grate­ful Dead Ar­chive, McHenry Li­brary, 1156 High St., Santa Cruz; (831) 459-2547, bit.ly/grate­fuldeadarc­hive. Free — Christo­pher Reynolds
