Bob Weir of The Grateful Dead and Bryan and Scott Devendorf of The National will share the stage under the name “The Bridge Session” at California’s TRI Studios on March 24.

The musicians aim to mix “different musical genres, political discussion and a showcase of modern technology, the event aims to ‘bridge the gaps’ between people of various tastes and viewpoints.”

They will perform original songs as well as cover songs. There will be roundtable political discussions between the sets.

The Devendorfs cite The Grateful Dead as a major influence on their music, and Bryan considers himself a Deadhead. The National will also curate a Dead tribute album.
