Jerry Garcia's birthday: A Eugene holiday?

EUGENE, Ore. -- Is the late Grateful Dead guitarist Jerry Garcia's birthday a holiday in tie-dyed Eugene, Ore.?

Public radio station KLCC will broadcast live from the WOW Hall on Aug. 1, the day Garcia would have turned 67 had he lived. He died in 1995.

The event will be hosted by Downtown Deb, host of KLCC's weekly Grateful Dead radio show Dead Air.

The broadcast will go live from 7 to 9 p.m.

You can attend the event live and hear music by Cap'n Trips for $10. Beyond the music, expect birthday cake, door prizes and what a press release described as "Big Stompin' Fun."
