Following last year’s release of “Blue Mountain,” a rare solo album from the Grateful Dead founding member, Bob Weir will come to Austin with his Campfire Band for two shows April 15-16.

Tickets, $62.50-$82.50, go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, Jan. 27, via the ACL Live website.

Much of the Campfire Band consists of musicians from renowned indie-rock band the National. Guitarist Aaron Dessner and bassist Scott Devendorf, who helped Weir record “Blue Mountain,” are aboard, along with Devendorf’s brother Bryan Devendorf, the National’s drummer. The lineup also includes bassist Jon Shaw, known for his work with Austin’s Shakey Graves, along with Josh Kaufman and Steve Kimock.
