Epic ness Inc terrapin.   Arethra Franklin voice, singing, coming out of space. Glory hands and Sister act in the eves. Dear Mr Fantasy. The love light was outstanding great dance space,. And another Easy Wind encore in black mountain :) Thanks Rob88- it is a fav. 😍

 A stranger filled my water bottle for me - took it without me knowing, filled and returned. ;)  hey you know how in Bertha after the line “ throw me in the jailhouse” there is that strong chord - well it was done twice. Ha! We were having that much fun. 

 

 I always want to count how many  anymore’s there will be but haven’t put the idea into action. Seems like a fun trivia nerd thing to do.

That part of Bertha took on new life and meaning after Jerry got busted. Kinda like Black Peter post coma. Sounds like a good pastime to go back and listen to the different versions and hear the evolution.

Really fun dance party at our usual spot stage left where the fescue is abundant and forgiving. Weather was just exactly perfect this night with clear skies and a crescent moon. First set was fun albeit a bit 87 list boilerplate and took off at PeggyO for me. Really strong and sort of unusual 3 song first set closers. The second set smoked from start to finish. After the killer fillers I had nothing left to give but to enjoy warm fellowship with world class people before, during and after. Many thanks to this hard working band and it's crew who make this happen. You bring a lot of diverse people from all over together and offer them the chance to experience bliss together. That's fairly special.

There is nothing quite like being surrounded by so many dear, loving hearts. You make my life a beautiful garden. I am taking today as a day to enjoy the glorious view and perspective, breathe it in  and solidify it as we start a new season, marked by man, not by nature. 

 

Peace and and great love, 

PG

That Terrapin was an absolute monster.  Simply vicious.  The Crazy Fingers was the perfect fuse for that 2nd set :)

 

DSO + Crew are just so dialed-in!  So thankful.

I found out the sounds of Aretha singing comingled with space was a spiritual from MLK’s funeral. The faintest sounds of her voice got louder and louder and it seemed like her spirit had been called in a seance. And then space morphed into Dear Mr Fantasy.... it was powerful!

As my friend and lady who helps me out says, “Aretha could hoop!”. I think she’d say the same of Lisa. 😉

This isn’t my set list. Not that I don’t like it but it’s not what you call my bread and butter. I like pigpen Dead best. However, this night proved the strength of DSO and the power of any era or collection of Dead songs done right. Also think it attest to the power of my DSO family. 

 

I had the most fun. Felt the energy of the music most and in my not so humble opinion moved the best I did at any show on this tour. I was lucky to catch 10 shows and I had other great nights. 

 

BM has the perfect recipe to have one of those magical nights. Lots of my DSO family makes it out to the show. Some great dancers in that group. Raises the bar and the energy. Also the staff here is super chill. We can smoke and enjoy ourselves without too much fear of reproach. The ground is mostly flat and outdoors so tons of space even when DSO brings a big crowd. 

 

I love this venue. This night was magical for me. Thank you DSO and crew for bringing the goods.

Boy am I glad I made the trip. Aretha space was powerful stuff. Both shows knocked it out of the park, my boy fell in love with the mountains. I got to put a few more faces to names in here which is always awesome. Next time I get down that way without the kids I’m gonna try to be more social pre/post show, although I prefer to deal with the popo as little as possible. 😆😂

Did you meet his youngest birthed deadhead. His oldest is at college. Both are GD savants. He did well as a papa.

He learned his lesson the hard way about the mulchy dance floor. Feet were killing him by the end of night 1. 😆😂

Yes, I met the young samauri Duck and saw the glimmer in his eye.

They’ve both been to around 20ish DSO shows. Oldest a few more because he’s been to a couple Jubilees without my youngest but he got like 4 or 5 “firsts” over the 2 BM shows and was thrilled that he went.

      Has DSO ever played this song? I would love to hear it live
    • 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
