fillmore nye 2006/7...this is what rock should be...
O'Malley's in Gloucester, NJ 10:30 show time!!
Awesome cover band!! :)
I have no idea why we didn't launch a topic for them months ago, but better late than never: http://dead.net/forum/dark-star-orchestra
I am Unbeliveably EXCITED!!!! I can not wait to see them. They will be here in 2 months. I will be sure to give everyone a review!!!! Peace DaNell!!
Dark Star Orchestra plays complete Dead shows in the stile the Dead played them. You don't which show they are playing in advance, but if the play a 91 show it will sound like 91 Dead, a 77 show will sound like 77 Dead. They usually play a second encore with songs not from that show. They sound almost exactly like the Dead, it’s spooky.
Can someone please fill me in on this? I'm from Pgh.,Pa. Tickets went on sale on Saturday and when I saw the add it looked like something I'd like to check out.

All 3 Cream reunion shows at Madison square Garden
i forgot one of the absolute best...
CSN and unannounced special guest in a greenpeace benefit at the arlington in sb...86...I couldn't stop smiling, unfortunately I had stiches in my face from being hit with my surfboard previously that week...so it kind of hurt..in a good way...special guest was NY...
then there's that other best...
the BG memorial too..2 am drive up to the park from SB with friends...running into other friends at the cheap gas 10 miles south of salinas...400000 people in the park on a bright clear fall day hearing the creme of the bay area music scene play in all kinds of configurations...if only my friend hadn't eaten the brown....
- the other ones with billy at shoreline ...my first time back seeing a dead "family" band
-wilco ...most shows...but definitely the ones before they became rock stars...love nels, but jay had the heartland roots rock thing (and neurosis) down...jeff, shouldn't you just have slapped him and not fired him?
-mother hips...fillmore 2001...my first...gotta love the floor rolling during grizzly bear and the energy of the crowd...the hips "bring it" as I'm told Band of horses does too (but based on my recent experience at the fillmore, Band of horses really doesn't "bring it"!)
-black flag ...uconn student union 84 or 85 (can't remember, but henry looked like he was going to kill me...tom trocoli's dog sing peed on the audience...gotta love punk rock...and greg ginn was a deadhead...can you say 6 degrees?!)
-allmans..county bowl early nineties with blues traveler...fatty homegrown spliffs in the front row at the snooty bowl where no one between the front rows and the back 40 dances (we did hard)...god dam it, they paid good money to sit!
-the who...bridge school...maybe 2000 (not a stats geek, obviously) ....when pete was talking about his "relationship" with john lennon...oops sorry, there are kids on stage!
-neil...greendale at shoreline...ol' black, political statements, and movies of pescadero, nuff said?
-mogwai at the fillmore 2000?...talk about dynamics...gotta love not knowing a band when you go see them and being blown off your feet at the show...they shouldn't sing though
-u2 sj vertigo...five feet from the stage...if only my feet were on the ground! even got a back rub from the height challenged girl behind me!
-mickey on earth day at grace cathedral (2000?) gotta love howling like wolves in a cathedral!! even alan jones was in the spirit!!
-numerous isla vista house parties in the mid 80s - early 90s...
