Watch Dead & Company Play “Jack Straw” on Colbert

Dead & Company started their 2017 fall tour in New York City this week, and between proper shows, they’re doing a two-night stand on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. Last night, the band–which features three of the four surviving members of the Grateful Dead‘s core lineup, plus John Mayer on lead guitar–played with a languid version of the Dead classic “Jack Straw.” Bob Weir wore a t-shirt with the image of his late bandmate Jerry Garcia, and Mickey Hart wore some kind of wig/antennae combo on his head. Watch it below.
