New Mexico History Museum presents Radical Southwest: Long Strange Trip at The Lensic

Martin Scorsese presents this story of the Grateful Dead, the ultimate counterculture band, who emerged from the San Francisco scene with a blend of bluegrass, folk and improvisation. In an age of drug-fueled experimentation, the band cultivated a fan base willing to travel to new realms of experience. Director Amir Bar-Lev (MY KID COULD PAINT THAT) draws from an unbelievable treasure trove of largely unseen materials, including an interview with Jerry Garcia, to create a tapestry of the era’s most unlikely rock heroes. (U.S., 2017, 235m)
