Next month, Rooster Conspiracy will make its San Francisco debut, with guitarist Eric Krasno, bassist Reed Mathis, keyboardist Todd Stoops and drummer Jay Lane offering up their psychedelic, improvisations. Rooster Conspiracy’s San Francisco debut is scheduled for July 26th at The Independent—the night in between Phish’s highly anticipated West Coast performances in San Francisco and Los Angeles.Rooster Conspiracy was actually born from Grateful Dead drummer Bill Kreutzmann‘s good intentions and celebratory spirit during the first few days of 2017. Having just rung in the new year in a friend’s backyard in Hawaii with a band that included his Billy & the Kids bandmate Reed Mathis and Mathis’ Electric Beethoven bandmate Todd Stoops, Kreutzmann was in the mood to keep jamming. When he heard that Eric Krasno just arrived on his little island of Kauai, he invited the guitarist to join in.In the time since the project’s inception, Rooster Conspiracy has taken on a life of its own. While the Grateful Dead drummer is often unable to make performances on the mainland, Kreutzmann’s presence is still felt in the band’s song selections, which frequently use Grateful Dead songs as a jumping point for creative, exploratory jams. In Kreutzmann’s stead for the upcoming San Francisco show, the band has once again tapped Ratdog and Primus drummer Jay Lane, who has become a staple of the project, previously performing with Rooster Conspiracy at the group’s East Coast debut at Brooklyn Comes Alive in 2017 and more.Tickets for Rooster Conspiracy’s upcoming San Francisco debut at The Independent on July 26th go on sale on Thursday, June 28th, at 12 p.m. (PT) via Ticketfly.
