High Time Closes Debut Year With Thrilling Sold-Out Show In NYC

2018 was a high time for Grateful Dead fans in New York City. In addition to hosting numerous outdoor performances from Dead & Company and Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, New Yorkers were introduced to a new Dead-themed tribute band this year by the name of High Time. The five-piece rock band began hosting concerts at Union Pool in the north Brooklyn neighborhood of Williamsburg starting back in March and have expanded to a few smaller markets outside the city in the months since. The band has played the small but fun Brooklyn venue seven more times since their debut back in the spring, more often than not to a sold-out crowd of local Deadheads.

High Time’s show on Sunday acted as their last NYC gig of 2018, and they closed out their inaugural year with a thrilling two-set performance of Dead favorites, in addition to a notable debut from one of the jam scene’s newest tribute bands.
