The Grateful Dead have announced the final installment of the 2020 set of Dave’s Picks archival releases. Dave’s Picks Vol. 36 will feature two shows performed at the Hartford Civic Center in Hartford, Ct. on March 26 and 27, 1987.

“Hard to believe but we’ve come upon the very last release in our 2020 Dave’s Picks Series,” Dead HQ wrote in a social media post announcing the release.

The shows featured on the release mark the Dead’s first performances on the East Coast since guitarist Jerry Garcia had gone into a coma the previous summer. The Dead’s lineup at the time consisted of Garcia, guitarist Bob Weir, bassist Phil Lesh, drummers Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann and keyboardist Brent Mydland.

The March 26 show begins with a rare “In The Midnight Hour” opener, and the second set begins with the classic pairing of “China Cat Sunflower” and “I Know You Rider.” The next night, the Dead opted for an “Alabama Getaway” opener and closed the second set with an emotional “Morning Dew.”

The shows are available for pre-order beginning at 1 p.m. ET today. Head to to purchase. Check out the full setlists from the featured shows below.
