We were just talking about the The National covering "Morning Dew," and here's more Grateful Dead news. Phil Lesh has expanded his tour.

In addition to the three Memorial Day Weekend shows at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY (tickets), Phil will play two Coney Island shows on September 14 & 15 at the Amphitheater at Coney Island Boardwalk. His band for these shows will include Jackie Greene, Eric Krasno, Alan Evans, Neal Evans, Karl Denson, Jason Crosby and The Shady Horns. Tickets go on sale Friday (5/13) at noon with a Live Nation presale starting Thursday (5/12) at 10 AM. Password = FRONTROW.

In addition to those NYC-area shows, Phil has a bunch of shows coming up at his California venue Terrapin Crossroads, as usual. Check out the full schedule here.

Here's a video of one of Phil's sets at last year's Lockn' Festival with Carlos Santana on guitar:
