7/3: Gratefulfest at Nelson Ledges



Next month marks the 14th anniversary of Jerry Garcia’s death. The 10th annual Gratefulfest — happening this weekend at Nelson Ledges Quarry Park (12001 Nelson Ledge Rd., Nelson, 440.548.2716) — pays tribute to Garcia and the Grateful Dead with a ton of homegrown and national performers. Headliners Dark Star Orchestra will play full sets on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. They’re about as close to the real thing you get these days. More than 20 other Dead-inspired bands — including Steve Kimock & Crazy Engine, Melvin Seals & JGB, Klyph Black & Rumor Has It, the Recipe and Red Hot Trio — will also perform. Tickets: $50-$95. There is no extra charge for camping. — Julia Kazar
