Looks like a great line up for downtown, will any part of the streets be closed off? I think that would be great idea if not, the part on Hamilton

Palo Alto has been out of the loop musically before Jerry Garcia died. I am very glad sponsors have stepped up to the plate to bring smiles back into the city~ Thank you!!

Well, August 1 is Jerry Garcia's birthday, and in honor of his roots here maybe we can ask either California Cowboys or SOL or both to throw in a little tribute cover in their sets.
