yes i have seen something really cool lately

Dark Star Orchestra, and before that, Phil & Friends this past Fall was amazing! I downloaded the show, and I swear, when I think about the show, I'm STILL buzzing from it. It was THAT GOOD ! I still listen to it pretty regularly. Btw, there are some free downloads from the NY shows from the board on Phils site, just in case you didn't know.

U2

at the old Ritz (4th/11th) in NYC in '81. A capacity 2500 dance hall.
Saw them again in '92 at Yankee Stadium, capacity 68,000. Hardly seemed the same band.

Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.

Dark Star Orchestra

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.
