Rosewater is the only local Grateful Dead tribute act of any prominence that eschews the use of "Grateful" or "Dead" in its title and for that I applaud the group. Tonight the band will play three sets at The Jam (the first set's free, then it's $10 after 9:30 p.m.) of music by its spiritual masters. Layla Dias opens at 6 p.m.
Over at Humbrews at 9:30 p.m. you can catch local power trio Blacksage Runners as the boys roll through the hits. What hits? Why the ones from their sole album Takin' to the Road. For a mere $10 you can support a true blue local rock band in its element.
