The Matrix

Of course it should be here. I certainly did not mean to imply otherwise. That’s precisely why I commented that it is a killer submission. And yes, it should be here so others are made aware if they have not yet discovered The Hartbeats. I even posted a link to some David and the Dorks in the comments on one submission a while back as there are likely quite a few that are unfamiliar with that coalition as well. My apologies for the confusion

The Matrix

from comments “Garcia is ON...but this is not the Dead this is Mickey and the Hartbeats, which, on this night, consisted of Jerry Garcia, Jack Casady, and Mickey, with Spencer Dryden in the first set and David Getz in the second. no Phil, Billy, or Pigpen. what a hot show though!!!! superfine.”
