  • Jerry Garcia Symphonic Celebration plays Bethel Woods on August 6.

August 6. The Grateful Dead was the focus of a perhaps incongruous homage earlier this year with Day of the Dead, a box set of Dead covers curated by the National and starring a strikingly diverse roster of artists. This event at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, the site where Jerry Garcia and crew performed at the 1969 Woodstock Festival, curiously pairs Gov't Mule/Allman Brothers Band guitarist Warren Haynes—a musician intimately familiar with their songs via his slot alongside the group's remaining members in the Dead—with the Hudson Valley Philharmonic for an evening of Garcia's music. (Counting Crows and Rob Thomas croon August 5; Smokey Robinson smolders August 20.) 7pm. $43, $53, $64.50, $84.50, $114. Bethel.
