Before Furthur hits the road again in February, Bob Weir will play a special acoustic set at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, UT. The set is in support of Sundance's screening of "The Music Never Stopped" and will take place on January 23.
Based on a true story, the movie chronicles the life of a Deadhead runaway who is diagnosed with a brain tumor in the late 1960s. After surgery to remove the tumor, his brain becomes permanently damaged and he is unable to create new memories. During his rehabilitation, doctors realize that the man is most responsive to music of the psychedelic era – The Beatles, Bob Dylan and particularly, the Grateful Dead.
Roadside Attractions has purchased domestic theatrical rights and has set a March 2011 release date.
