I was planning on getting a ticket for the Stone Pony show in Asbury Park on the 10th, but then they announced the Bergen PAC show on the 8th, and I only can swing one show due to money being kinda tight for me of late. The Stone Pony has gotten rave reviews, and part of me would much prefer being outside in August, enjoying the beach vibe before and after the show, so I am leaning toward going there. Never been to the Pony, not even the bar itself, which is shameful, because I have lived in Jersey for almost 30 years!:blink: My experience with Bergen PAC is that the sound is kinda muddy, and it's a very small, tight theater, which is not very conducive to dancing. I remember the DSO show I saw there back in July of 2011 when they recreated the Englishtown show, and the air conditioning was on the fritz. Even though it was hot and steamy in there, the band pulled it off nicely, but everyone was swooning from the heat. The other consideration for me is that if I go to Asbury Park I know they will be re-creating the 7/9/89 show, which was a terrific Dead show with a nice setlist, but I would prefer to see an elective show, and I would stand at least a chance of getting one at the PAC. Not in a rush to make a decision, but I am definitely on the fence pondering which I should go with.

    • That Lucky ‘ol Sun

      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

      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.
