New Riders of the Purple Sage

About New Riders of the Purple Sage

A product of the early 1960s psychedelic folk movement in San Francisco, New Riders of the Purple Sage originally featured members of the Grateful Dead, but their schedules started filling up pretty fast and NRPS moved in a different direction. The two jam bands maintained a good relationship, touring extensively together and still lending each other members when possible, including many shared writing credits. Tonight's show at Moe's Alley is more than just another stop on the country rockers' annual fall tour - it's also a release party for their new album 17 Pine Avenue, a demonstration of the psychedelic Americana that the New Riders do best.
