Here's video of the first set:
Good Lovin'>Crazy Fingers>Born Cross-Eyed>Eyes>Other One>So Many Roads; Help On The Way>Slipknot>Franklin's Tower. E: Touch Of Grey
Nice show, brutal for us non-vampires on the EC -- time to go to the gym
Second set tonight was on fire!
after Viola Lee - Bozos. Why don't you get some IT people!!
Lots of nice jamming tonight. Mind boggling tangent on Doin' That Rag. Really nice.
This night brings me moments of missing Jerry (as all Furthur shows do). The ineffable non-presence of the spoon that stirred the pot.
Still I am grateful for this -- rolling into Watchtower from Stagger Lee now. Enjoy!
The Sweetwater Show was Super!
I haven't the sentences
I wish for so...
don't forget, xo.
Big fun at the new Sweetwater last night with Furthur. It was great seeing them in such a small venue - capacity is only 313! I don't think anyone was more than 50 feet from the low stage. Kinda felt like I was back at the Keystone in Berkeley during the JGB days, except the Sweetwater is cleaner with a better sound system. Although I did like the free popcorn at the Keystone!
The show was on the mellow side for the most part. The vibe in the room was palpably joyful, everyone having a real good time. Phil had a big smile on his face most of the night, John seemed to be enjoying his solos. Nice "kumbaya" moments, especially during "I Know You Rider," when the whole crowd pretty much took over the lead vocals.
Looking forward to the streams for the next three shows.
Here's a link to video of the first set from last night:
With the right kind of eyes you can almost remember where that high, sweet wave broke...
I am luvvin' this...
Wow, really great seeing the boys all bunched up on that little stage. Very nice webcast. The first song i caught was the Deal. Then Bobby crooning Black-Throated Wind. Gotta love it.
There definitely is a difference with them in close proximity, at least to my ears.
Check them out if you have the notion.
