  1. Albany Roll Call - 11/11/17

    Driving out for Montclair early tomorrow morning. Should be an epic, historic couple of shows
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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!
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Favorite Scarlet>Fire transitions

    7-01-85 There is a specific moment where things slow a bit and Jerry hits this waaahh and you know that the Fire has started. I even snipped about 4 seconds of this, including the waaahh, and made it my notification sound on my phone years ago. It's actually very cool, if I do say so myself, but now when I listen to this Scarlet > Fire in its entirety, it's really weird to hear that waaahh out of the phone context. I've almost ruined that transition for myself because I've heard that 4 seconds literally 1000s of times. LOL https://archive.org/details/gd85-07-01.composite.torbjorn.17350.sbeok.shnf Here's the link to listen. I don't recommend making it a ringtone though...
  9. Matt Reynolds

    Have to echo what comesatime just said. Shocked and saddened is exactly how I, and I think all of us, feel right now.
  10. Dark Star Jubilee

    Had to leave after the 1st set Sunday (lots to do Monday morning). Saw that there was a lot of rain on the way, according to the radar. Did that rain come, and if so, how hard? Sunday was supposed to be the bad weather day, but it wasn't bad all at, unless it finally came during set 2. GREAT shows though. Loved all the old stuff the first two nights.
  11. Jubilee Roll Call

    In. Question: I've always camped outside the concert bowl (up the hill)... What's it like down in the bowl? Enough space for a 6-man tent and an EZ Up? Is it all slightly sloped? I know it's really steep by the Shakedown. Is it worth a couple of trips, not to mention the purchase of a canvas collapsible wagon, to camp down over the hill? Any advice is appreciated, and thanks all
  12. Saban Theater 2/24

    Setlist has already been posted, but here were the highlights, according to this happy reviewer. Cassidy was good in the 1st set, and Walking Blues, in kind of an upset, was even better. But the DEAL blew both of them out of the water. And was that a Doogie Howser tuning by Barraco before Candyman?? Awesome lol. In the 2nd I thought Believe It Or Not was really well done, but the monster Playin, complete with the reprise before Drums, was not to be missed. Drums/Space also keep the jams coming hard. Twas my first time at the Saban and the experience was great. Loved how the lights, uh, lit up the beautiful interior. Kinda chilly inside, but the show and the large crowd more than made up for it.

  14. Electric factory 12/31

    What a show! Just a few thoughts.. 1. Fire was typically great. In my opinion it's become one of Jeff's standout songs, and this one had something different about the jam/solo that I was really digging. 2. The DEAL was Out Of This World. 3. When did Eaton grow a beard? Whoa! 4. Also worth mentioning were Bird Song, Stella, Space with the Drummers, and The Other One, especially the 2nd Other One. Band played their hearts out for a long, long time this show. Again, wow. 5. Not to split hairs that've already been split, but, from what I'm reading, there was a Cassidy reprise w/out vocals after Bird Song and before Deal? I guess I missed that. My daughter and I were hitting the restroom and getting food right around then (to avoid the normal setbreak congestion). I'd also add a "Jam" to start the 3rd set that sounded like a Dark Star jam with Lisa vocals akin to what she does at the end of Scarlet, which then went into the Countdown and Sugar Mag. Wasn't the longest jam, but longer than and more of a actual jam than a tuning. But who cares?! Hahaha. More wonderful stuff that takes us into 2017, the 20th Anniversary year. That is just amazing!!! On the verge of *20*!
  15. Pittsburgh 10/15

    Setlist: Iko Passenger So Many Roads BIODTL (18 beat I believe) B.E.Women Chimes of Freedom Mama Tried > Mystery Train Queen Jane Box of Rain > Tangled Up Stranger Scarlet > Fire > Corrina > Cryptical > Drumz > Other One > Dear Mr. Fantasy > Visions > Sugar Mag E: Werewolves Song of the evening goes to a fantastic Tangled Up. Note the surprise transition from Box, which many people, including myself, thought was going to end the set. There were other surprise segues: Mystery Train after Mama, and Cryptical out of Corrina?! Great stuff. That was yet another scorching Fire (sorry, bad pun, but totally accurate) courtesy of Jeff. Also note all the Dylan songs. I expected a Baby Blue encore as the icing on the proverbial cake. Good times in the Burgh. Edit: Whoa.. when I type the acronym B-I-O-D-T-L (without the hyphens) it automatically changes it to the words you see above. Technology!
