I believe dark star really got to me at nye 2003 Indy, then it was off to the ledges for, well, probably the best dead scene since alpine. Good,  really good fun and nice people at every show since I've been going. Haven't partied much with forum folks,  but everyone,  in whatever aisle I end up in, at the shows is great. Probably peaked at mishawaka and state bridge runs. Unfortunately,  or whatever,  I won't be at home town show this summer because I jumped the gun on Billy Strings June 29th The Vogue in Indianapolis. He's doing almost all festy shows this year and I saw this as a rare bar show that might be my only chance to get "strung out". Annie's is going to be a great show on the 29th if it's anything close to what they played the last time the dosed that space.  Hopefully there will be a recording of this time around

 :) Haven't seen you for Born Cross Eyed in a while. Hope you are well and thanks for letting me sleep at your house a couple of years ago..

Thanks! I know I remember an Unbroken Chain breakout-ish show there, Donna Jean, and seems like even Constantin at some part of a tour. But God knows all the shows combine.

It jumps from show 1773 to 1775. It’s a mystery that will never be solved. Wasn’t that the show they played New Orleans for the 1st time?

BUT the second time I saw them in Charlotte 2/14/14 at 10:23pm there was an 4.1 earthquake where my family settled in 1803.  It was felt 150 miles away. And I remember the great setlist... it happened during second set. -  maybe during Saint- I remember feeling an extra jolt

20 years for me, coming up this June (6/23/99 at Graffiti's in Pittsburgh where they did 9/11/87).  I went because I missed live Dead music (only 3 GD shows, all the summer of '95, for me) and I expected a decent/good show, but I couldn't have imagined that DSO would be the PERFECT thing to fill the void left by the Dead.  I was a budding deadhead in '95 with a 100 hours or so of tapes, and in '99 I was ironically a already a relic, of sorts, with several more hundred hours to listen to on XLII's, but no LIVE show to go see/experience/participate in.  Futhur Festival was good, but didn't quite cut it for me, and neither did any other "jam" band, not even the ABB.  I needed live Grateful Dead music, and played at a certain level, I might add.  I had seen several cover bands in the years right after Jerry checked out, but it just wasn't good enough.

 

Then 6/23/99 everything changed for me.  The WHOLE show was like a dead show.  Sounded like a dead show.  Was improvised, like a dead show.  It even had a drums/space that rivaled what the boyz used to do.  Drumz, and Scott's Brent-esque vocals, are what really won me over that night.  

 

And as I approach 20 years of seeing this band, I can't imagine what my life would have been like without them.  As they are to many of you, to me these shows are, I can't think of the proper word(s) to put here.. spiritual, magical, educational, chaotic, liturgical, "rite-of-passage-al", poetic.. I think you get the idea.  Like I said before, DSO has perfectly filled the void.   

 

Shows 192 - 194 coming up at the Jubilee, and hoping to hit 200 in 2019.

 

polished like a golden bowl
the finest ever seen

20 years ago tonight was my first DSO show (that I played)!  It was an audition in front of a live sold out show at Martyrs in Chicago.   Evidently, I passed the audition that night and Im still riding this bucking bronco.  Thank you everyone for getting me this far down the line!  I appreciate you all!!!

That night, I was asked by Scott Larned if I knew any other drummers that I could bring in to play with.  I said, "Yes, I have a buddy I have played with for several years that I know back in St. Louis."  
    Scott asked "Can you bring him up next week"? 
 
Next Saturday at the Jubilee will be Rob Koritz 20th anniversary of his first DSO show.

Dino, It is so good of you to be drumming for DSO for twenty years. Let's hope everyone can keep it up for another twenty years.

Peace and Love,   Doc

Wow, lots of good stories here...hard to read them all. Aug, 2001 for me, Norfolk VA. Hollywood Bowl '72. I almost cried. I have absolutely no idea how many shows I have seen over those years, just festies probably gets me around 30? It's a couple between the festies I'll share here...

 

Hagerstown...maybe 08? Kevin was on fire, Chuck and I were hitting it hard on the top of the balcony. This was my first experience with closing my eyes and really listening. After that show, I watched a documentary about the 5 senses and learned our brains use 70% of it's sensory processing power processing what we see. If we take sight away (by closing our eyes of course) we open some portion of that 70% for other senses to use. IT'S AWESOME!!!

 

Philly-Some small theater on...South Street...I think. Mid 00's I think. I can't remember the name of the place or any songs they did that night...but I drove up from Norfolk, went to the show, drove home and at work by 8AM.

 

Made that same hike for Wilmington DE once, shit twice?? Fuck, I don't know, and Dewey twice...If you haven't made a Dewey show, I strongly recommend.

 

Peace,

I'll see some of you this weekend I suspect.

    • That Lucky ‘ol Sun
      By: gr8fulpair · 06/23/2019
      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.
    • Deal 9/5/89
      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.

      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.
