Last night, Dead & Company played their second of two nights at Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco, CA, and they brought out an old friend to help out.

After playing with John Popper the previous evening, the group jumped into the “Drums” portion of the second set last night with Zakir Hussain, who has sat in with the Dead before and has collaborated with drummer Mickey Hart in the past. Hussain was a part of Hart’s 1972 album Rolling Thunder and won the first ever World Music Grammy with Hart for 1991’s Planet Drum.

Both Hussain and bassist Oteil Burbridge joined in on “Drums,” then Hussain returned to the stage for the extra-percussive set closer “Not Fade Away” and an encore of “Brokedown Palace” that rounded out the band’s stint in San Francisco. They will pick things up again tomorrow to finish out the year with a two-night run at The Forum in Los Angeles.
