One of those perfect nights when I was able to lose myself fully in the music, highlights are a bit tough to recall, it was really lovely the whole way through. Terrapin was special, and it was amazing to hear almost all of Red Rocks get down almost to pin drop quiet during Black Peter. Lisa tore it down with White Rabbit, great to hear that song in that place at the end of the night. The rain held off to within a couple seconds of the final beat of the song, really cool.

Hoping there is a picture of the Band like last year’s RR show that looks out on the audience.  That was so cool.

Wow what a weekend! Disneyland was NOT the happiest place on Earth. The band on fire and greeting several star heads from days of yore that I haven’t seen in over a decade! Also greeting contemporary tour folks for first time along with the plethora of usual suspects.

First hot and sunny.

Next deluge and coldness

Next rainbows!

Then the moon...

Band playing with lightning dancing on the background.

Then the final deluge

The cameras during Drums were a great first for me. Seeing Dino’s and Rob’s talent up close during the entire piece was like hearing them for the first time. The way they  play with and off each other is as good as it gets, with the sound in that place being perfect ...

I’d like to thank them for 3 days of all out hard work. It can’t be easy putting it all out there every night. I only danced and I’m exhausted.

praise DSO

I think the nights music and energy punched a hole in the sky! 

 

White Rabbit ended. I felt one drop, second and then third. Then the heavens opened up. Washed clean. 

 

Incredible. Felt like the first time at Red Rocks. Yay DSO!!! Love you all. My feet are still swollen from dancing. 😄

Red Rocks is the best. Lots of hype for me leading up to this show and it exceeded my expectations.

 

That moment of quiet during Black Peter was the most tuned in I've ever experienced a crowd be. 

 

Epic.

The Dead actually did three shows

in 1983 at the Rocks.  9/8/83 was

the third of three.  My Red Rocks

show had it all--other worldly venue,

live changing music and loved friends.

To everyone that touched my weekend,

Thank You.

 

Praise DSO.

Epic weekend. Was crazy how the rain started pouring within seconds of show ending. I wonder if Dso finishing with their short white rabbit vs longer one was because of the radar.  Waiting at the top of the venue b4 the show was unique because I’ve never been up in the mountains with lightning striking all around us. They herded all of us at the top entrance into the museum and theater so we wouldn’t die. I’d have never walked through there if that hadn’t happened. After the show, the gf accidentally deleted the whole memory card on her camera so the likely thousand pics of the weekend are in digital purgatory. I’m not a big picture taker when traveling as I tend to try to avoid technology but I’m glad she does because it’s nice going back years and watching slide shows on tv of our travels and to me it reinforces the memory of the event. In the things vs experience debate(there is no debate imo) maybe pics are the one thing that enhances the memory of the experience.

Forgot to mention, I checked the time as the show ended and the rain began, and it was exactly 11:11, if anyone finds that sort of thing interesting.

What a fun night. Came from Va with some folks seeing DSO for the first time. The music, the people, and the venue added up to a great experience!!  Still have the Glow. 

Heading up to Yellowstone / Glacier.

SkipBombs echoing the thunder to start it off. He’s been on fire lately. Someone peering thru binoculars at Jerry Aliens in the rocks above. Enjoying ride for sure. Scarlet jam was unrelenting. Black Peter was breathless ... everything in motion.

Listening to the original recording of this show tonight, Bob Wagner's killer audience recording. Really special to listen to the GD recording and remember the time I was having during the show, almost like listening back on to our own version of that night, I feel lucky to be alive to experience the music this band brings through right now.

I finished a long re-cap of my show experience and have now thought better of it.  Needless to say, it was a really wonderful time in a really magical place.  26 years since my last concert at RR and I was treated to a thrilling experience.  The weather ran the full spectrum as did the variety of the show.  I was so glad to be next to my brother on one side and what felt like a band of brothers and sisters on the other.  I felt surrounded by love, joy, wonder, mystery, excitement, and acceptance.  I was also surrounded by rain within a moment of the band trailing off from that White Rabbit

 

I like to take that ride again!  2 nights at Red Rox would be dead, solid, perfect (after a couple in Boulder of course to whet our appetites).  Thanks to DSO and Crew - there was a great deal to pull off and everyone did so in spades :P

    • 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.

      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.
