DURST CASE SCENARIO: And They’re Off!
August 30, 2019; Doors open @ 7:00pm; Show @ 8:00pm
$30 Advance; $35 At-Door
In this lightning-paced 85 minute comedic tour-de-force, satirist/author/actor Will Durst, described by the New York Times as “possibly the best political comic working today, “ celebrates the two-year anniversary of Donald Trump’s ‘Reign of Error’ with an hysterical historical updated analysis and rollicking feast of outrage about where we are, how we got here, and what may lie ahead.
Opening for Will Durst will be The Insiders, featuring Paul Cotruvo and Kiki Stack of local Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers tribute band, the Big Jangle. They will perform as an acoustic duo playing music from The Heartbreakers, as well as Stevie Nicks, along with some other surprises. What a great way to get in the groove!

JERRY GARCIA AT WINTERLAND, JUNE 17, 1975 - This picture was taken at Winterland Arena in San Francisco, California, by the late Frank Moffett. Though originally booked as “Jerry Garcia and Friends,” it eventually morphed into a full scale Grateful Dead show, right in the middle of their “retirement year,” 1975. This was one of only 3 impromptu shows that year. Taken side stage via special access, it shows Jerry in the midst of a contemplative solo. Printed on thick mill stock, this incredibly rare poster is one of a few left from an edition of 500, and was personally approved for licensing by Jerry himself. All copies are out of circulation and in sole possession of a local collector, also an ex-employee of the band. This will serve as a beautiful addition to any Dead Head’s collection.
Poster Dimensions: 14" x 20 1/2"
