Research, then Watch

There are some really interesting documentaries and musical investigation opportunities on TV this week, all outlined in a weekly blog on hidden track. Thursday, there is a documentary investigating the personal and professional relationship of Jerry Garcia and David Grisman. There is also a biography of Ray Charles on Biography Wednesday and Pearl Jam "Ten Revisited" on VHI Classics Tuesday. Visit the site for a complete listing.

This Pearl Jam revisit could be a happy little coincidence, as the band was also just announced as a headliner for Outside Lands Festival in San Francisco Aug 28-30th (Others include DMB and Beastie Boys). It is a strange lineup consisting of bands I haven't thought about or really listened to in years, but quality music nonetheless. It might be time for that refreshing rush of nostalgia mixed with some credited indie band groove.
