How could one not walk down the street and pay $40 to hear DSO do a Dark Star>Two Souls?

 

My only regret was going up front for the second set. Apparently I have forgotten everything I learned.

Here comes Sunshine opener. Dark Star had a other one jam in there. Another great night by Dark Star Orchestra, familiar smiling faces, good time all night. I really appreciated the midnight, moonlight. I forgot all about that one. The band seemed to stretch it out a bit. Got caught up in the music, some of the tunes had me flashing back well over thirty years. Totally way lot of fun.

Terrific venue! An absolute luxury, as it's a 30 minute metro ride from my house.

Were you able to metro back out of town after the show? I looked into it, driving to New Carrollton and catching a train into DC but I was worried that the last train out wasn’t late enough. Not into leaving a show early just to catch a train.

I did make the train home okay. The show ended about 11:20pm.....Metro Center is only an 8-minute walk from the Hamilton.

I did have to take the Orange line to E. Falls Church in order to connect to the Silver line to Tysons.

Just be sure to be walking out of the venue by 11:30 tonight...…..given the 8pm showtime, shouldn't be a problem.

This venue was pretty cool, kind of unusual at first to see DSO in a room where people are sitting down and eating dinner, but it turned out to be a good place to see them, excellent sound. I preferred night one to night two, really enjoyed the second set sequence, and the segue into China cat from NFA was perfect and unexpected. Love the early style China Rider transitions where Eaton takes the lead, which is what he did here, followed by the 1974 style jam (forget what that's called) before settling into a high energy Rider. Dark Star was excellent, and the peak of Two Souls was the highlight of the night for me. Eaton sang "that's why he tweets the blues" during Saturday Night, haha. 

 

I got my recordings of these shows up on the archive. For some reason, the track names came out screwy, using the file names instead of the track names, but they are in order. Going to try to figure out what went wrong and try to fix it, but in the meantime: https://archive.org/details/dso2019-05-13.cp4

Thanks for recording, much appreciated. I thoroughly enjoyed myself catching the first night. Had a blast. The band really made two souls shine. I couldn’t understand why Lisa didn’t come out and sing along on I know you rider. I found that odd. The night went by so fast, Shame when you’re having fun. Always fun to hear Saturday night when it’s not Saturday night. They rocked it pretty good. I’m worried about the guy who had the unfortunate incident out front of the venue after the show. I hope he’s ok.

Skip was singing the high part on Rider, I think maybe to keep it sort of era specific even though it was an elective. That guy who took a spill was ok, he shook it off and was walking around when I left.

    • 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.

      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.
