No drums?, or just no drums on the list? I love sing me back home. They played that in Dewey a year or two ago. Sorry I missed it but the night before left me physically incapable. I overdanced. I love it when Dark Star comes around. My favorite time of the year. Thank You, band.

I think it’s safe to say that we’ve all been rendered incapable at times.

"Drums" didn't become a nightly staple until the late 70's...…..prior years got drum solos only if wrapped up within an Other One or Alligator jam.

There was a short drums portion during The Other One.

I retract, no drums during The Other One.

Yea, after being taken to school, I looked up the original set list as performed by the Dead. No drums. I lost my head, forgot where I was, didn’t think of the era. I’m telling ya, the first night at Dewey wiped me out. I overplayed my part. I’m half glad I ‘m back at work, getting the rest I need.

Night was fun.  Great set list.  Casey Jones was a hit for sure.  

 

I danced as hard as they played.  Last show at Dewey for me, I got a 71.  The birdsong was not what i was used too.  Only because i am not well schooled in GD eras as most of you.  

 

I am learning though.  Becoming more aware mentally then just the raw rhythm and b es st that makes my body move. 

 

The band slowed down after sing me back home.  

 

It's not a slight towards dso,  they play as we dance. I judge the music on how it makes me move.  If dead, and in a coffin, dso played at me funeral, I would jolt through that death to the music played. 

 

The whole show rocked, but you could feel the down beat after sing me back home.  It was not the same.  The music hit the band, as it hit a friend, she balled her eyes out during merl haggard, and then danced the rest with a man described as Ill , but so happy to be with us all.  

 

I am proud she gave a dance to someone who needed it.  I hope we all do this for others.  I shake my bum for those who can't get it, but the point.....share yourselves as you share yourselves with the music.  So many people want to dance, let loose.  When I mean dance, I dont mean head Bob, I mean, dont care....dance like you do naked and the house is empty.  The blinds closed.  

 

The biggest gift we can offer is to offer safety and comfort.  To be the laughable,  so others dont look so laughable.  To qualify, laughable when it makes us move is not funny, its smiles.  Its knowing your energy is passed on to others.  To be so ridiculous that others who care about being ridiculous, have a higher bar set.  To be the extreme, only to shift the measure so ridiculous is normal. 

 

Thank God b&c removed the back bar.  It sucked.  But now it's gone!!!

 

Thanks DSO for the memories,  the people, the travel, and the insight.  To give back a strength of being who you are rather then what others want you to be.  

 

You give that to me.  You make me feel like superman.  My glasses removed, my suit off, my chest out.  It takes music to be a fool, but to do it as a man.  The confidence in that is priceless,  and again, you shared it with me this night.

Couldn’t agree more. DSO played sing me back home in Dewey last year(?) it was right after Merle had passed. I was up front, it brought me to tears, thinking about my mother who had recently had a stroke that rendered her alive but speechless. I could see that the band was effected by that song also. If I ‘m not mistaken, Lisa missed some lyrics, being caught up in the power of the song. 

  As far as the dancing goes, yea, dance your face off. I certainly don’t dance as to be judged by others. You might not like me, but you’ll never forget me.

  Yea, the bottle and Cork is vastly improved with the changes made to the back area. I still struggled with finding that sweet spot where you’re at a show with the band, far enough back to be able to flail about wildly ,yet, not be in a bar full of neon. 

  I feel very fortunate to have caught the Dark Star shows that I did this year. I blew off New Years cuz it was nine fucking degrees out, got blessed with a nice handful of shows that really demonstrated the talents and abilities of every one in the band, onstage or backstage, individually and as a whole. I saw Baltimore, Jerry band show, seventies in Wilmington, Atlantic City was awesome, and first night Dewey was scrumptious. What a nice mix of shows. It’s part of who I am and I am greatly appreciative. Thank you, Dark Star Orchestra, on stage and back stage.

    • The Motorcycle Song -- Arlo Guthrie
      By: goganious · 02/09/2019
      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.

      A few years ago I had been in seriously deep dark depression.  I was essentially a walking dead.   The various chemistry the several doctors gave me did nothing. Then one day this song came on the radio…I had not heard it since my hippy days many years ago when we would sing it around camp fires, festivals and occasional church meeting.   Hearing this song broke me out of my depression illness.  I came alive again. Peace and Love, Doc
    • The Motorcycle Song -- Arlo Guthrie

      Arlo was in Atlanta about a week ago. It was a very good show with his daughter, Sarah, and son Abe in the band. I've been fortunate to hear Arlo many times over the years and frequently play his CDs in the car.  The last couple years his shows often start with "The Motorcycle Song" as a video cartoon played on a big screen before the band comes out for the last chorus.

      TR, very cool you posted. I'm a big Arlo fan. Saw him about 91 or 92 play at Queen's College in Charlotte. It was a school theater holding about 500 or so people. He came out in tattered blue jeans, holey t-shirt, and barefooted. Just came to the front of the stage and sat down on the edge with his feet dangling. I don't even remember him using a microphone. He played and told stories for a couple of hours, including the motorcycle song. What a great memory that is for me. Thanks for taking me b
