Bob Weir, founding member of the Grateful Dead, now has the keys to Austin.
Mayor Steve Adler presented Weir with the key to the city at soundcheck ahead of his show at Austin City Limits Live at the Moody Theater Saturday night, Adler announced on Twitter.
According to the tweet, Adler and Weir also discussed the musician’s “Vote Local” initiative. Weir advocates for HeadCount.org, a nonprofit which holds voter registration drives at concerts to encourage young people to vote.
Weir is playing with his Campfire Band, which consists of musicians from the National, on Saturday and Sunday night at ACL Live.
