What a great show at the Park West tonight. Everything was well played... Bucket, Loser, and Tom Thumb (nice job Kevin!) were especially good in the first set...

Samson and Morning Dew in the second were worth the trip from Arizona alone!!!

Thanks to DSO for yet another worthwhile venture out of town! Judging from the tight squeeze in the Park West and it being sold out for several days, a suggestion might be to start looking for a bigger venue in the old hometown....

I'm pretty shocked myself..... god damn Chicago... everytime I fly home from there, I'm so hungover that my head is thumping, my stomach is churning, and some fucking kid is sitting next to me screaming his head off...

Herdy, in that case, take the little whipper snapper from his Mama and calm him with your eloquent words by telling him the sweet innocent story of our trip to the Norva. You would put him to sleep with laughter.

i wasn't really in a story telling mood.... infact, the only story I would tell the little bastard, was about the disgruntled hungover deadhead on his way home to go to sleep when the little bastard sitting next to him made his head pound so he choked the shit out of him until his air supply was diminished enough where he fell asleep then the disgruntled man slapped the shit out of his mother for thinking it was funny that her little baby didn't want to sit still on his first plane ride ever...

think he'd like that story?

Seriously though...... every fucking time I fly home from Chicago, there is some asshole making my hungover trip miserable...

I am thinking that maybe I shouldn't drink so much when I am in Chicago, but then reality hit me and I decided that the general public should just stay away from me on my travel days... I think that will work out better..

Dammit, why cant i ever be at shows with "3rd set" encores? I've seen plenty of 'em on the setlists page, but every show i've ever been at (or even streamed) has had a one song filler, two if i'm lucky, and they're rarely dead tunes... :( it seems the weight is the filler every other time i see them... never been at a show with a ridiculous encore (minus night 3 at the ledges last year, heard it from my campsite :shock: )

I guess all good things in all good time...

In the last three years (04/05/06) DSO has used "The Weight" as filler 22 times.. Now remember that's well over 400 shows. Now if you look at 06 closer we only used "The Weight" as filler 3 times. Once in March, April and Dec. Usually when we pull this song to use as an extra it's because we don't have much time left and we really like the song! When it's in a Dead's set list we have no choice. We do also use it in electives. But as a filler it's a rare one!

Couldn't agree more. This was an original set list from a Park West show last summer:

Show #1,253 - Sat, Jun 24, 2006 at Park West, Chicago, IL

Performing 6/24/2006 Original Setlist

1:Shakedown, Minglewood, TLEO, Memphis, Maggie's Farm, Cumberland, Run For The Roses, Passenger, Bird Song

2:Stranger, Stir It Up, Help> Slipknot> Franklin's> Drums> Space> WRS Prelude> WRS Part 1> Let It Grow> Believe It Or Not> Throwing Stones> NFA

Encore: Sisters and Brothers*

The Shakedown opener was amazing, with explosive jamming like a heated 2d set. The whole damn show was good, full of highlights and that magical feeling that every song seemed immediately to be the perfect "next song..." When these guys are good they are indescribable. Last Friday's Park West show, another orig set list, didn't measure up. The first set especially didn't hang together well.

    • 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.

      A few years ago I had been in seriously deep dark depression.  I was essentially a walking dead.   The various chemistry the several doctors gave me did nothing. Then one day this song came on the radio…I had not heard it since my hippy days many years ago when we would sing it around camp fires, festivals and occasional church meeting.   Hearing this song broke me out of my depression illness.  I came alive again. Peace and Love, Doc
    • The Motorcycle Song -- Arlo Guthrie
      By: Michael Doc Watson · 02/04/2019
      Arlo was in Atlanta about a week ago. It was a very good show with his daughter, Sarah, and son Abe in the band. I've been fortunate to hear Arlo many times over the years and frequently play his CDs in the car.  The last couple years his shows often start with "The Motorcycle Song" as a video cartoon played on a big screen before the band comes out for the last chorus.
    • The Motorcycle Song -- Arlo Guthrie
      By: gr8fulpair · 01/29/2019
      TR, very cool you posted. I'm a big Arlo fan. Saw him about 91 or 92 play at Queen's College in Charlotte. It was a school theater holding about 500 or so people. He came out in tattered blue jeans, holey t-shirt, and barefooted. Just came to the front of the stage and sat down on the edge with his feet dangling. I don't even remember him using a microphone. He played and told stories for a couple of hours, including the motorcycle song. What a great memory that is for me. Thanks for taking me b
