Dead Webcast: Furthur Experiments To Be Broadcast from Bob Weir’s TRI

In June, Furthur will perform… everywhere.

On June 7 at 6 p.m. Pacific, Furthur will broadcast a concert direct from Bob Weir’s brand new state-of-the-art recording studio, the Tamalpais Research Institute (TRI).

“A lot of guys, when they have a little success in life, go out and buy a yacht or a fancy car,” said Weir, “What I did was I went out and built a flying saucer.”

Weir’s “flying saucer” is an 11,500 square-foot live HD webcasting venue. The studio boasts state-of-the-art equipment, including a Meyer Sound Constellation System that allows engineers to emulate how a band would sound in a small room, a massive arena and everything in between.

Weir’s current project, Furthur, broadcasted a test earlier this month and plan to follow it up with a full concert, mixed and streamed live online at TRI’s website for $19.95.

About clazaga5

I am a music writer. I graduated from FIU's School of Journalism and Mass Communications in April, 2011. I've always had a passion for music. Since high school, I've been involved in a few bands and written a good number of original songs. I loved going to shows and seeing live music. So when the notion struck me to combine the two, it seemed only logical that I write about live music when and wherever I find it. This blog is what came of that notion.
