Stephen Malkmus Salute To The Grateful Dead's Jerry Garcia: "Bertha" & "Been All Around This World"

On March 30, 2018 at the Ace Hotel in Los Angeles, several artists gathered together to celebrate life and work of The Grateful Dead's late guitarist Jerry Garcia.

Stephen Malkmus, seen here in fan videos, performs "Been All Around The World", and is then joined by Los Lobos' David Hidalgo in a spirited version of "Bertha".

Fans will recall that Los Lobos did a killer version of "Bertha" on the 1991 Dead tribute album Deadicated and have performed it in concert ever since.

Malkmus & The Jicks contributed a stunning 11-minute version of "China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider" for the 2016 Dead tribute album Day Of The Dead. They performed an even longer version at the second night of celebration of Malkmus' former Pavement bandmate Scott Kannberg/Spiral Stairs' 50th birthday extravaganza in San Francisco's The Chapel in 2016:

The first night at The Chapel, Malkmus & Scott thrilled the crowd with several Pavement covers:
