  1. Getting pretty excited for a Friday night, Saturday night Portland/Eugene double feature. This will be my 13th year seeing DSO. My, how the time flies. I don't love the venue that DSO plays in Portland these days, but I HAVE seen some excellent stuff there. A quick perusal of the setlist archive reminds me that I saw Lisa absolutely tear the house down a couple years back with a show-stopping "Chimes of Freedom". The "White Rabbit" from the next night wasn't too shabby, either. There was also this, from a 2017 elective: Crazy Fingers > Hey Jude > drums > space > Saint Stephen > Not Fade Away > Stella Blue > Saint Stephen (reprise) > Not Fade Away (reprise). That actually happened. Then there's Eugene. As Oteil Burbridge once said, Eugene is like the "old growth forest of Deadheads". A magical place. Always, always a great time down there, and I know the band loves playing in Oregon in general. Aaaanywho...it's gonna be more fun than a frog in a glass of milk, and I'll see y'all there!
  2. I once bought a kitten and he just kept meowing and meowing. He talked quite a bit. Then I started stringing up my guitar that evening, and he came over and started pawing at the frets, meowing meowing meowing. I looked at this overly talkative creature who was now trying to play his dad's guitar, and the name was obvious at once: Arlo. 12 years later, he still talks a lot. Love Arlo Guthrie. Such a unique and funny personality. Have seen him a few times. He always puts on a great show. "I landed on the top of a police car....and HE died." 😂
  3. I had a feeling it was a '76 as it was unfolding due to song selection and the thing Skip was doing with his bass during Scarlet Begonias, which was a '76 only little Phil flourish. Once Might As Well happened, I knew for sure. One thing I wanted to add: After US Blues, they played "Lonesome and a Long Way From Home" as filler, and it was rad.
  4. I've got this list hanging on my fridge. It pretty much says at all. Follow it, and you'll be doing alright. Fare thee well, Mr Barlow. Thank you, thank you, and thank you again.
  5. Tennessee Jed. They Love Each Other Could go the rest of my life without hearing those two songs ever again.
  6. Just wanted to add a quick story of Mr Reynolds' kindness. I work front desk at a hotel in Oregon. DSO used to stay with us whenever they came through town. A couple years back, I saw that they were due to arrive and moved a bunch of stuff around in the rooms inventory to make sure they could check in early and get comfortable, knowing they had a show that night to rest up for. As a thank you, Mr Reynolds offered to put my wife and I on the list to get into that night's show. I replied "Thanks, but we've already bought tickets for the next 3 nights' worth of shows". Being a bit of a shameless opportunist, though, my mind flashed to the Chicago show they'd be playing the night before the Fare The Well shows. I asked Mr Reynolds if it would be possible to get on the list for THAT show (even though it was a few months out). Without hesitation, he said yes, jotted some notes into his phone, and gave me his number. A few months later, it was showtime in Chicago, and to be honest, I assumed he had only been humoring me or would have by now forgotten the whole interaction. I texted him and, to my surprise, he responded promptly and knew exactly what I was talking about, confirmed my first and last name with me and my plus one, and told me everything would be taken care of. And sure enough, everything went smoothly. To top it all off, DSO wound up playing the best set of Grateful Dead music I would hear/see all FTW weekend....but that's a story for another day. Anyway...peace, love, and strength to his family and friends. Fare thee well.
