Start time for fall tour (2018)?

Recommended Posts

 

If it’s an 8pm show expect them to start b/t 7:58 and 8:15.  On shows that will take a while to recreate I’ve seen them go on before start time. Dso is prompt as they want to give fans as close to a 4 hour show as possible and I’ve seen a 4:15 show before. Don’t be late or you will miss songs

that's what i was thinking, that they will start early enough to cover the full experience while still having an intermission. the doors say 7pm, so i'm thinking it's an 8pm show- thank you!

The latest I’ve seen Dso start a show was at 8:20 for an 8pm show. It was a sold out show where security was having a hard time getting people in. But I’ve also seen sold out shows with hundreds in line outside start right on time. My 1st Dso show ever was at the Vic Chicago and I was shocked that they started right at 8. What band starts at showtime was my thought? My gf at the time at the start of encore 2 of 3 said are they ever going to stop?  We had to leave to catch our train and missed the last song. I was in heaven. She was in hell. Needless to say we didn’t last 6 more months and I needed warmer weather.

I think the gf has more fun at shows than I do now. She’s ear to ear grinning the whole show and I can no longer keep up with her when at 1st she danced very little. The more and more familiar she got with the people and the scene the more she could just let go and release the inner freak. I’ve had a couple friends who let go fully at their 1st show but they had really high self confidence. Her 1st show she didn’t dance for most of the 1st set just watching them play. Now she’s spinning and listening and watches the band less than I do and I may only be watching 1/4 of the show. During that 69 show I stopped dancing and just watched the band playing and interacting during a lot of the 2nd set and it just reaffirms how great these guys are. Their transitions are flawless. All 6 guys can transition perfectly together and make it look so simple. That’s where Dso is just heads above every other dead band. Heck, the most famous dead band no longer transitions songs with more than 2 members. The drummers or guitars will drop out on almost every transition to a new song and once the drummers establish the new beat the rest will join in or the guitarists will transition to the new song and the drummers will join in. Swapping in Phil would make a big chemistry difference but don’t tbink he wants to play Casey Jones at China doll pace.

DSO is top of the heap and it has a ton to do with this:

Little threads that get weaved to a collective mind-bleep.  Bass, drums, rhythm, keys, and lead.  Always one of them gettin it started - just love how they all end up taking the bait and taking it the best places.

 

Praise DSO indeed ❤️

A 69 then an early Brent show b2b. What more could you ask for. It was like a different band. The styles were so different. It was mind melter, shredding feedback 2nd set in Louisville. Last night was a happy groovy 2nd set. How they can do that so perfectly with limited practice boggles my mind and do it so different every time. So many songs over the 2 nights were played so differently than I’ve heard before. It’s like they get more and more creative every time I see them. On I think it was TOO, skip was coming in at unique times on his bass licks. Eaton was getting a kick out of it. They were having a blast and the music was fresh.  Once the crowd thinned out at 11, the energy level got even higher. When the talkers leave the dancers flourish and after 3 hours of sweating, the crowd switched into a higher gear.  I love everything about a Dso show.  Hell we may do New Years run even though I’d prefer to go where the chilly winds don’t blow after Christmas. Miami or Dso New Years. One lacks warmth and the other lacks Dso. I guess I’ll see which I need more at that point. On a selfish fan note when Rob K’s cute son Levi came out and grabbed his hand as he was doing show announce in St. Louis, it reminded us that Dso won’t be retiring any time soon as they have families to support. I know rob b has said before that he chose the musicians life and this is what he loves to do and has no thought of stopping. The road is tough but the job satisfaction level has to be off the charts. Plus Rob B get to continue channeling pigpen and he still wont care if you are only 17 years of age even when he’s 90 ;) .

    • The Motorcycle Song -- Arlo Guthrie

      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

      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
