    Cleveland HOB 10/11/18 setlist

    Dear Prudence was sublime. Shakedown fantastic as always. End of the Playin proper had a jam that reminded me of Who Was John. And wasn't Skip playing both Whole Lotta Love and Paranoid during space??. Crazy. And a That's What Love encore to top it all off.

    Rochester 8/3/18

    Ok so far.. Alabama Bucket West LA Memphis Blues Lazy River Road Esau Blow Away Ramble On Sunrise Music BTW a train was fittingly rolling past the field during Lazy River Road. Couldn't tell if the boxcars we're bright blue. Lisa joined the show after Blow Away. And Music was killer. Set 2 China Cat > Rider She Belongs To Me Lost Sailor > Saint of Circumstance > Drumz > ... Great transition into Rider. Loved the She Belongs To Me. No Lisa in set 2 yet. Oh there was a nice little glow sticks extravaganza in the stands after Rider. In space just now I think we had Dazed and Confused teases... Post-space to come... Drove back to Buffalo and hit the hay before I could finish the post.. Dear Mr. Fantasy > Throwing Stones > World To Give > Saturday Night E: Mr. Charlie C'est La Vie (You Never Can Tell) Lisa returned for Saturday Night (which everyone was dancing at the local skating rink) and the rest. Really good, slightly slower, Mr. Fantasy. And were there Dazed & Confused teases by Skip/others in Space?? At least that's what *I* heard. Great time at the local baseball field today. Crowd was sparse up until 20 minutes to go then it seemed to explode and really fill in. *Sigh* Now I can't wait for the October OH/PA shows!!

    Buffalo 8/2/18

    So far, if I haven't missed anything: Jack Straw Dupree's (apparently not the Stagger Lee that I originally wrote down lol) Me & My Uncle > Mystery Train Black-Throated Wind Tom Thumb Blues Loose Lucy Passenger Bird Song > Watchtower > Bird Song Notes: After Mystery Train, Barraco tells us this set for us & in the key of E. During Tom Thumb, Skip "started out on Prilosec" and he was going back to Cheecktowaga" I thought Mystery Train and the Watchtower had that extra something. Smooth transition into Train. Very tasty. Set 2 coming up shortly. Woot! Set 2 so far Eyes > Corrina > Till The Morning Comes > Truckin > Drumz > .... Great Eyes and Truckin (up to Buffalo). Truckin had a hard hitting stop/start sorta jam after the big crescendo that I don't think I've EVER heard before. And now the drummers are pounding us into submission. Gotta get back to it! Drumz > Jeff Solo > Space > Miracle > China Doll > GDTRFB E: Viola Lee Blues Awesome Jeff and kinda Close Encounters-ish. The group space was pretty short. Miracle was nice and gnarly. GDTRFB hit on all cylinders. Viola had a rather unusual and purposeful mid-tempo jam before gradually accelerating to warp speed. So great to see this band keeping things fresh, throwing in new wrinkles after all these years. That's why I keep coming. Canalside BTW was a GREAT place to see a show. Loved the video screens, the vendors, the old WWII boats, everything. The sound was top notch tonight too. Can't wait until tomorrow at the ball field.

    Jubilee 2018

    Jubilee 2018

    Twas a great weekend, and I finally have a chance to port forth a few thoughts, in no particular order. Saturday (5/26) was GREAT music all day. Yes everyday was great, but Saturday was GREAT. Dino's Quintet and Holly Bowling were fantastic. They had a high-class vibe going on that made me drink my beer with pinky fully extended. That was one rough storm, also on Saturday, but we pulled through. Many canopies were turned into twisted metal, and some tents became kites, but everybody kept on keeping on. The Amazing Giants and the Joyful Bubbles are great side entertainment for families and well, everyone, really. Keep bringing 'em back! Those were some of the cleanest Port-o-pottys I've ever seen. Well done! Only at the end were they even the slightest bit rank. Except for Potty #2 by the GA showers that was, well, Number Two'd on top of the seat midday on Saturday, but by evening it was in tip top shape. Thank you to whomever is in charge of keeping those things clean. And to the person who layethed down the evil deed, shame!! Melvin & DSO is one potent combo. Tore Up might have been my favorite song of the whole weekend. Stage banter was hilarious. Good audience recordings are available on archive.org (thanks Toaste!) as well as a matrix of Holly Bowling. What happened to the cold nights of Jubilee '13? I've been sweating my spheres off every year since. Back in '13 I actually wore my winter coat to Night 3... It's weird, but it seems like every Sunday morning, when they're about to do the Kids Parade, the weather is perfect, maybe a little warm like I just mentioned, but the sky is blue, the sun is out, and there's absolutely no rain. Every Sunday morning at the Jubilee looks like every other Sunday morning at the Jubilee. Just beautiful. And if it's the kids that are good luck, then maybe we could have them parade around all weekend long because storms just suck. Oh, and that was one long parade. From the stage all the way thru GA, that I saw. Awesome! I'm buying the SBDs when they come out, always do, but could we also get the other DSO collaborative ensembles?? Dino's group, Mattson/friends, California Kind, and Melvin & five sevenths of DSO were all great and I'd love to hear those boards. Guess that's all I got. GREAT Jubilee '18. It's almost been a week and the memories are so vivid that it still feels like I just left Legend Valley. See ya next year!

    Jubilee 2018 Roll Call

    We usually arrive around 1:00-1:30 and there is already a huge line, which is to be expected. And by the time we get through the snake of cars, camping space in the bowl is very hard to come by. Do they open the doors at noon, or a sometime before (so they don't have as huge of a mess/line of traffic)? It just seems like a lot of people to be already inside by the time we get down in there. When do people start arriving, like 11:00, 10:00, or even 9:00? and do they immediately go into the Snake?

    Your 2017

    Way to go Rude. Congrats on your epic year! Your 37 beats my personal best of 34 in 2001. We had kids in 2002, so those days are long gone lol. Those days being the days where work was the only thing restricting my show-going. These days it's about 8 per year, which I'm happy with and it keeps me going, but if only I could get it to 20 or so! Ahhh a man can dream

    DSO video compilation 1999-2005

    I saw 4 Chopper gigs (who hailed from St. Louis, right?) back in early 2000. The dude had some serious energy. And whipped up the crowd with it. BTW the "Lost DSO fan" at about the 28 minute mark is a buddy of mine. No that's not his burnt out van lol. We just thought we'd use it as a prop while we killed time between shows on the Easter 2001 run.

    DSO video compilation 1999-2005

    So I posted something to check out just before the 20th anniversary show coming up on 11/11. Video clips of a lot of shows from the 1999-2005 era. About 3 hours worth. Let me know what you think, and enjoy folks! See ya in Albany

    Bizarro thread: Dead song you do not really like

    There aren't that many. Candyman and slow FOTDs come to mind. And Must Have Been The Roses. I am BIG FAN of the Jerry ballads, which makes my least fav dead tunes all the Stranger (pun intended). I guess those three I mentioned are just the lowest rungs on the ladder, so to speak.

    Bryan Adcock Appreciation Thread

    So this past Saturday was Bryan's last show, after 18 years of being The Man at the lighting board. He was always a man behind the scenes, but he was instrumental in creating that scene up on the stage that we love to watch. I know for me, I never paid that much attention to the lights at a show until I met Bry at my 3rd DSO show in Erie, PA back in '99. He asked me if I was the guy video taping at the previous show at Penn State (I was). [Whoa, I just realized how this kind of sounds like the story of how people met in a romance novel hahaha]. Anywho, Bryan was pretty new to the band, and obviously so was I, and we kind of "grew into our shoes" at the same time. And I gained an appreciation of the lights at a show that I probably wouldn't have ever acquired if not for Blinky. I go to shows for the music first and foremost, but, especially over the years as his skills (and number of weapons in his arsenal) increased, I also want to go see the green/orange combos dance across the stage, the perfectly timed blasts, and the trippy shapes rotating slow and then fast on the tiedye backdrops, and all over the house, actually. So I raise my IPA to toast Bryan of not just manning the position for all those years, but for adding such a complex visual dimension to the experience we just call 'shows'. Won't be the same without ya buddy. I wish you nothing but the best. CHEERS!

    Rob Eaton

    Everybody in DSO is and was an awesome fit. What I mean is, even as the lineup has changed, each player has brought something new/different, and the final product hasn't diminished whatsoever. Even during the Bobby Rotisserie League era, circa 2000 (right?) each guy brought something tasty to the table. And it convoluted and crazy as it was, it too was a real good time.

    Rob Eaton

    Reminds me of "Could Bobby play lead?" thread that flooded rec.music.gdead in the weeks/months after 8/9/95. Gotta agree with Mango but let me add this. (I'm not saying anybody here was saying this, but what I read just got me thinking, is all. Everybody be cool ). It kind of bothers me when it's stated that Bobby (and in DSO's case Eaton) lays down the basis or structure or foundation or pick-your-own-word-here of a song, so that Garcia could do his thing. In an old Guitar Player Grateful Dead special issue (1993) it was stated, and I'll have to paraphrase a little because I'm not gonna pull that magazine out of whichever bin I have it stored in, via an art metaphor that Weir "draws the outline of a song, and Garcia adds the color". As I listened to more and more GD from that point on, year after year, I've found that at many times, it's Weir/Eaton doing the coloring with incredibly interesting lines, especially in songs like Morning Dew, China Cat, Terrapin, and, well, actually, Space. The reason I fell in love with GD music was that it forced me to listen to all of the pieces, which sometimes are doing very different things, all at the same time. And in a single song I might like what Phil did here, and what Jerry did there, and the way Bobby kinda played around Brent, etc etc etc. And obviously, because I've been seeing this band now for 18 of the 20 years, I love that DSO does the Exact Same Thing.
