Nice! I was going through the good ole’ emotional roller coaster yesterday after giving my ticket away. I had to keep reminding myself of the bigger picture and Stephanie from Ocean City getting her first Dark Star show. She got a great show. 

 Mission in the rain must have been incredible in that venue. I bet you could hear a pin drop, every body swaying together.

excellent show.  Eaton seemed to really be into the show last night.  He was pretty active on the stage.  Eaton announced the loss of a close family member at the beginning of the show.  Condolences to Eaton and thanks for playing through your loss.


Also, it was the anniversary of Jerry's death and they said Matt Reynolds too.  


When I first got into the venue, I was a little concerned.  Most of my area was sitting and I was actually asked to sit down.  Took a bathroom break during Duprees and and when I came back, found a new spot with totally better energy.  The energy kept gaining steam throughout the night until it seemed like the whole place was up and moving.  I bounced around a lot and my favorite area was in the couple rows above the main aisle stage left.  There was a good group of dancers in that aisle and security hassled no-one.  


Of all the DSO original setlists I have seen, this was my favorite.  I don't like too many rarities in my setlists or mixing of eras.  This setlist stayed pretty true to mid 80's thru early 90's.  


The first 3 to open the show (stranger/loser/minglewood) were stellar.  Minglewood was downright nasty!  Me and My Uncle was great.  Strange rhythm to Big River.  I think DSO put a completely original spin on Big River last night.  A little slower and bluesier pace.  Not sure if that was from a Dead styling of Big River, but don't think so.  Wasn't too crazy about the Big River and it took from what is always one of my favorite pairings.


Deal was smoking.  Lots of gambling songs in first set to go with the Casino venue.  

Box of Rain is usually not a live favorite....but they killed it last night.  Really beautifully played.


Help/Slip/Frank was sick.  Mattson tore up Franklin's.  Franklin's was among highlights of the night.

Terrapin was a monster!  Dare I say......I think DSO is making me a fan of Truckin.  Song never did anything for me until seeing DSO do it a few times recently.  Great truckin. last night.  Mission in the Rain was the highlight of the evening for me.  Just gorgeous.


Really thought that Eaton, Mattson, and Barraaco shined in so many moments last night.


On the morning Jerry died I was camping on the Mississippi River during a cross country trip with my girlfriend.  Being on the river that Jerry and the boys so often sung about really made it a special day for me.  I remember sitting in my campground that morning and looking out on the river (somewhere in Minnesota) and feeling that I was meant to experience Jerry's death right there in that spot and moment,  Very spiritual for me.  DSO playing Black Muddy River on the anniversary of his death brought that moment back to me last night so vividly.  Thanks DSO.

      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.

      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.
