Photos, Videos, Set Lists Recap of Dead’s “Fare Thee Well” Santa Clara Shows

The first two Grateful Dead “Fare Thee Well” shows are in the books, and from all the reviews we’ve come across, the June 27th and 28th shows really were a long, strange trip.

Check out the photo gallery below of Deadhead in their absolute element hanging out before the big show, along with the set lists.  We even gathered a few videos, including one of the now infamous rainbow that appeared while the band performed “Viola Lee Blues.”  (Warning:  There’s some NSFW language in that clip.)
