    A dead head gets her groove on while The Dead play. They will play the Shoreline tonight.

    BRING OUT YOUR DEAD: Death was so popular that it came back for an encore. Not even death could keep these guys from a second night. We could keep going with the tacky jokes but they'd get us no where. The Dead, the reincarnation of the Grateful Dead, will play a second show at the Shoreline Amphitheater, 1 Amphitheatre Pkwy., in Mountain View at 8 p.m. because, well, the first show sold out in seconds. Tickets cost a pretty penny, ranging from $41 to $101, and are available through Live Nation.

    CELEBRATING LUCAS: It's one of America's greatest movies and it took place in cities across the Bay Area. One of them, Petaluma, will salute the cult classic "American Graffiti" tonight in the Historic Downtown Petaluma, on Petaluma Blvd. The George Lucas movie celebration will kick off at 9 a.m. and run through the night with special screenings, cruising cars, bands and more.

    JEFFERSON AIRPLANE REBORN: Hot dog Hot Tuna is playing one of the best places to see a live show in the Bay Area. Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady, formerly of Jefferson Airplane, will bring their acoustic and electric hits to the The Fillmore, 1805 Geary Blvd., in San Francisco at 8 p.m.
