Uncle John’s Band will take the Palladium stage on Friday night and recreate an iconic moment in Tampa music history. They’re set to play the exact setlist that The Grateful Dead played in Tampa, on December 19, 1973, which featured core Dead members Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Keith Godchaux and Bill Kreutzmann. And don’t worry, this general admission show will include lots of room between the aisles for dancing.

The Dead, December 1973—featuring Uncle John’s Band. Fri. Dec., 20. 8 p.m. $20. The Palladium, 253 5th Ave N, St. Petersburg.
