The Terrapin Roadshow 2024

UPDATE: Lineup Announced!

The Terrapin Roadshow will feature guitar trio Grahame Lesh, Dan “Lebo” Leibowitz, and Stu Allen, along with ALO bassist Steve Adams, Grateful Shred drummer Alex Koford, and the incredibly talented Jason Crosby (Jackson Browne, Oteil & Friends, Phil Lesh & Friends) on keyboards. Additional special guests will be announced soon!

Says guitarist Grahame Lesh: “The old Terrapin Crossroads was a gathering spot for music and joy for years, and we feel lucky to be able to continue creating that in beautiful outdoor spaces around the Bay Area. There’s something about playing Grateful Dead music under the sky, among the trees, that just feels right.”

Saturday, June 1st, will be ‘Psychedelic Saturday’, a two-set main band show where the band & special guests will dive deep into the repertoire and ethos of the Grateful Dead.
Sunday, June 2nd will be ‘Western Sunday,’ which will let the band showcase their country and bluegrass skills during an additional two-set daytime performance.

We encourage everyone to dress up for both shows!

The June 1-2 shows will be the first Terrapin Crossroads foray into the East Bay. For these shows, Terrapin Crossroads is partnering with Paper Moon Presents, who have put on concerts at the Bruns including ALO, Taj Mahal, Rebirth Brass Band, and many more.



Terrapin Roadshow at the Bruns? What’s the story?

This is a special one – Terrapin Nation coming together at a tiny amphitheater on protected watershed, in the hills outside Berkeley. The venue is an intimate concert bowl amid beautiful eucalyptus and redwood groves, with picnic tables, pop-up live music, and fun, colorful craft vendors.

What’s the timeline each day?

Each day will have three full sets of music. Doors will open two hours before the mainstage starts, so there’s plenty of time to enjoy the festival vibe.
Saturday will be 5pm doors, with mainstage music starting at 7pm.
Sunday will be 1pm doors, with mainstage music starting at 3pm.

How does seating work?

Most of the seating is general admission. The lower half of the concert bowl is standing GA, and the upper half is seated GA. No outside chairs are allowed in. Blankets are OK for the standing area.
There’s a limited number of premium reserved seats. These are the first few rows in the center of the upper bowl, looking at the band right over top of the standing people.

How does parking work?

  • Parking will be $20 per car in advance, or $25 day of show. Day of show purchase will be cash or Venmo only. Purchase in advance and save money!
  • Some of the parking spots are right by the venue, and some are in a parking lot a couple of minutes away. There will be a shuttle to bring people from the further parking over to the venue.
  • If you purchase a premium reserved ticket, you’re guaranteed parking in the closer lot.
  • If you purchase a GA ticket, which parking lot you land in will depend on how the flow goes – it’s not possible to reserve a spot in one or the other.
  • For ADA parking, please contact us at  

Are outside food and drink allowed?

Outside food and drink are not allowed. Empty water bottles will be allowed in, with water filling stations onsite. There is an café onsite, and there’ll be beer and wine for purchase.

I haven’t been to the Bruns before – what’s it like?

The Bruns is a beautiful, intimate outdoor amphitheater in the east bay hills. Park right off Highway 24 and walk a few minutes up a path to find yourself in a magical venue in a hidden spot on protected watershed. It’s usually very hot during the day, and very cold at night – come prepared!

An outdoor show in the hills in the summer? Sounds like smoking would be a fire hazard?

You’re exactly right. The venue has provided a smoking section in the central plaza, so please use it and be conscious and safe.

No pets allowed.

What’s the venue’s address?

100 California Shakespeare Theater Way, Orinda, CA 94563
