Grateful Dead Archives Moving to UC/Santa Cruz

The Dead will live on at UC Santa Cruz, in a way.
On Thursday, Bob Weir and Mickey Hart are scheduled to announce that the archives of the legendary band – 30 years worth of correspondence, business records, merchandise and memorabilia, including stage backdrops, a large "Blues for Allah" stained-glass artwork a fan gave the band in 1978 and some of the life-size skeletons of the band members for the 1987 "Touch of Grey" video shoot – will be donated to the UC Santa Cruz archives. UC Santa Cruz Chancellor George Blumenthal is also scheduled to be on hand for the announcement, which, appropriately enough, will be made at the Fillmore in San Francisco, one of the most storied venues in Bay Area music history.
