Rock harmonies of Midnight North come to SF for final tour date (Fri. 11/3 at GAMH)

This is not your parents’ jam band.

In fact, Midnight North isn’t a jam band at all. But they’ll be hard pressed to avoid being viewed as one, having emerged from the fertile Marin County scene centered around Terrapin Crossroads, the restaurant, nightclub and concert venue founded by Phil and Jill Lesh of Grateful Dead fame.

The club was originally envisioned as a gift to music fans of central Marin and a place for Phil to perform as he began cutting back on touring after decades on the road. It has since grown into an incubator for up-and-coming North Bay talent. Numerous local acts have benefited from this arrangement, but none more than Midnight North, who play the Great American Music Hall on Friday, Nov. 3.

The San Francisco show is the final stop in a busy summer of touring highlighted by an appearance at this year’s Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival. The old hippies have passed the torch to the next generation and Midnight North is poised to attain national prominence.
