It's been said The Grateful Dead weren't the best at what they did, they were the only ones to do what they did. Not true. Cubensis, the famed Grateful Dead cover band has done it for years, and they're still truckin'. For those who had a chance to see the Dead prior to Jerry Garcia's untimely demise and appreciated the experience, Cubensis is almost as good as the real thing. And for those who have only heard the spaced-out sonic ramblings of the Dead and perhaps view their fans as repulsive, hygienically inconsiderate people, go see Cubensis. You may learn something about yourself and the assumptions you make.
