On the interwebs Thursday night, God Street Wine, one of the bands in the 90's wave of jam bands, will perform from TRI Studios. The webcast will begin at 9:30 PM ET.

Speaking of TRI Studios, if you missed the 70th Birthday Tribute to Jerry Garcia on Friday night, here are 13 songs from the show. I caught about 2 hours of the 4 hour show and really enjoyed what I heard.

UPDATED 5/8: Here is the full four hour show:

You'll be able to check out a FREE webcast of the Allman Brothers Band Peach Music Festival this weekend starting at 3 PM on Friday at Moogis. Not sure exactly who will be on the webcast as the schedule isn't posted but you can probably bet you'll see the Allman Brothers Band both nights. Also playing over the weekend will be Warren Haynes Band, Dumpstaphunk, Dark Star Orchestra, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Toubab Krewe, Jaimoe's Jassz Band, Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes, Railroad Earth and The Wailers.

Another 90's jam band reunion is going on this weekend and this time it's a band that originated right here in Richmond and the show will be here too! Headstone Circus is doing a reunion show on Friday night at Cary St. Cafe. The show will start at 10 and they'll be playing two full sets. Proceeds from the show will benefit the ALS Association. Not sure exactly what the cover charge will be but expect somewhere around $7.

At The Camel on Friday night, Zach Deputy will get down with his bad self. Cover charge is $10 and the show starts at 9. Here's Zach doing "Tube Steak" at this year's Gathering of the Vibes:

Saturday and Sunday at Maymont (and looks like the weather will cool down for this) the Richmond Jazz Festival will serenade the bears and bobcats. The fest will run from noon until 10:15 PM each day. Single day passes are $50 or you can get a weekend pass for $90. Acts include Robert Cray, Stanley Clarke, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, India.Arie, George Benson, Pancho Sanchez and more.

Emo-pop band The Dangerous Summer brings a big line-up of music to Kingdom on Saturday night. The show will start at 5 PM and it costs $12 to get in. Other bands on the bill include From Indian Lakes, Your Favorite Coastline, Late Night Habit, Wake the Captive, and A Hero Poetic. Here is A Dangerous Summer with their song "No One's Gonna Need You More":

I'll see you at the Headstone Circus show on Friday night. Have a great weekend!
