Eric Carlin’s Half-Dead Presents Buffalo 5/9/77 Revisited perform live at Buffalo Iron Works on Thursday January 4th, 2024!

Eric Carlin’s Half-Dead


On the heels of sold-out shows in and around their home base of Rochester, New York, Eric Carlin’s Half-Dead brings their authentic Grateful Dead concert experience to Buffalo Iron Works on Thursday, January 4. No “close enough” renditions here. Eric and company dive deep into sonic detail to deliver accurate, dynamic performances of hallmark sets from the ‘70s and ‘80s.

Highlighted by Eric’s masterful channeling of Jerry Garcia’s musical vocabulary and guitar tone, Half-Dead has it all: tight three-part harmonies (got Donna? yep!), uniquely Bobby rhythm guitar, Phil bombs, a rainbow palette of keyboard stylings, devilish drumming, and all-out jams that soar and careen but never lose focus.

Fueling it all is an undying passion for the music. As Eric says, “Trying to capture even a speck of the Grateful Dead’s inventiveness and energy gives me a feeling and brings me to a place that I can’t get to any other way.” With that inspiration, let Eric Carlin’s Half-Dead move you brightly through the next leg of your own long, strange trip.

At their Iron Works debut, Eric Carlin’s Half-Dead will revisit the Dead’s legendary 5/9/77 show at Buffalo’s War Memorial Auditorium.

Some Deadheads say 5/9 tops the previous night’s almost mythical performance at Cornell’s Barton Hall. What do you think? Come on down and share your thoughts, shake your bones, and wave your freak flag!
