Jimmy Tebeau, frontman of local Grateful Dead cover band the Schwag and former owner of Camp Zoe, has been released from federal prison today. Tebeau was sentenced to 30 months for "maintaining a drug-involved premises". Police allege he was complicit in the open-air drug market at Camp Zoe, the 350-acre property that served as both the home of Schwagstock and where Tebeau lived with his wife and children. (The land was seized by the federal government in Tebeau's court proceedings.)
