A band I saw last night

Recommended Posts

Anyone ever seen the Garcia project? Supposed to be in Covington (near Cincinnati) Saturday. Don’t think they’ve played down this way before or if they have I haven’t heard. They recreate JGB shows I think. I may try to make it up that way.

I saw Ghost Light- Tom Hamilton band with Holly Bowling et al at the small theater  Visulite in Charlotte with about 300. The show first set was all originals. 4/5 I enjoyed. The songs take on the architecture of JRAD song flow with rockin periods moving into spacey thoughtful spaces. I believe one was completely improv.- at least the entrance it seemed.  The slide guitar played reminded me of “Wicked Games” . Another reminded me of Radiolarians 2 MMW which gets two thumbs up from me. It was fun to see what Tom H do his own thing and definitely took you into those jam band places spaces with ease. It was a fun excursion if you get the chance.

saw 2 nights of hyryder this weekend. Set 1 of night 2 is one of the best crafted sets I’ve ever seen. These guys transition phenomenally well. Very creative and so tight. To me the mark of a great dead band is how they transition and jam and they have it down. Show starts at the 15:00 mark. Listen to at least the 1st 40 minutes. Won’t tell the setlist but it’s a doozy and the jams are off the charts. Good soundboard even though the one on their Facebook is a little better quality but this is still great. Indy has a solid dead scene and these guys sell out in town.

Funny you say Indy has a solid dead scene. The crowd at the Egyptian always seems a little sparse. I wonder if we need to up promotion around town.

Indy does have a Grateful Dead bar with a stealie logo and prob 500 people were at the mousetrap last night. Not many towns have bars that identify with the dead or incorporate dead icons in their logos.  Unfortunately the closest I get to a local dead band is when hyryder comes to Evansville. Nashville has the stolen faces who play once a week but they aren’t near the same level as hyryder. These guys for being weekend warriors are fantastic and very original. For the bands I’ve seen dead related for me it’s dso, JRAD and hyryder moving up on the inside. That 1st set I posted is all female related songs lol. The viola>schoolgirl>Bertha was amazing and I was sipping on my 1st hopslam pretty much stone cold sober and my face got melted. I realize it’s the music that scrambles your brain and even though the misconception is that deadheads dance so crazy because they are on something, the reality is that the music makes us lose control.

Yes - couple times.  Cosmic Charlie has been playing really well over the last year or so.  I caught this show a couple weeks ago and it was straight fire - really good time.

Yeah - that was a little rough although Jerry would have a good swing south and a refreshing summer and fall.  The silver lining of the cancelled show the night before was I randomly met Bobby + Phil (only time) and one epic party at the Holiday Inn - crazy times!

We got a great local dead bar/venues. Several own by some guys in Denver and they used to have one in boulder maybe still do. Beonkeys has different local dead music and smaller nationally touring dead bands regularly. The poster/memorabilia collection in beonkeys and Sanchos In unreal. 

 

Jgb playing there end of March unfortunately or fortunately however you look at it Dso is doing Florida and that’s where we will be.

There is a tour going round called “Live Dead ‘69”   Not sure who is involved but it falls on a day I’ve already scheduled off so I plan on Checking it out. They are playing the same venue DSO plays when they come to Louisville. 

 

I looked it it up and it’s Tom Constanten, Mark Karan, Robin Sylvester, Slick Aguilar (Starship) and JGBs drummer and jay lane are splitting drum duties. Not sure if this is still the lineup but it was when the tour started in ‘17

You get a whole dark side of the moon sandwich in the middle of dead songs on either side. Seems like a no brainer.

Dead On Live @ Keswick Theater Glenside PA last night. DSO size venue 2k they had a good size crowd maybe 1200 ?  They were just ok

The song  and lead transitions were clunky and they lacked a cohesiveness you’d expect for 35$ I might see them at a smaller place for a 10$ cover

the female vocal seemed out of place in the band as she would ackwardly look for direction to stay on stage or leave.  It really made me appreciate the  high level craftsmanship and artistry DSO consistently provides.

A band I would like to check out is Pink Talking Fish. That combination of covers and the resulting set lists push most of my musical buttons. And at around $20.00 to $25.00 per ticket (not counting fees etc etc etc) the price is right for upcoming SoCal shows. We will see...

    • That Lucky ‘ol Sun
      By: gr8fulpair · 06/22/2019
      A song that for me totally embodies the relationship between two incredible talents that speak to one another thru their instruments. They both really shine in this one. Heard Jeff do it last year, I think Atlanta, and he fucking killed it.  Makes me emotional to hear Jerry sing it during this era. He was awesome.
    • Deal 9/5/89
      By: Ammagamalin Crew · 05/01/2019
      I did both those jgb merriweather shows, alpine and poplar creek. Horn hat AKG 460's > dbx224(battery converted) >d5. The dixie at merriweather, the lonesome at Alpine and the let's spend at poplar were choice. Heading to Louisville this weekend for Uli jon roth , closest thing to hendrix I've ever seen. My first deal was when jg opened for fz August 1984 in Chicago. the studio version is a good listen.

      By: LangeradoSoul · 05/01/2019
      I love this song. I love the record version, and I love how it changed over the years. There were more than a few hot ones in 1983-1984, then while always good, it seems that 1989 brought out extra hot ones again. I love this one with JGB, its a toss up between this one and the Alpine Valley shows from the summer which I like best from that year.

    • 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.
