3/30/09 NYC Shows: Set 2

The second leg of the "Taxi Tour" was only a couple of miles away at the Gramercy Theatre and I convinced my friend to take the subway rather than a cab. We grabbed a quick bite after arriving then entered the venue, another intimate setting. I would estimate that there were about 500 people there. Unlike the Orensanz, which did not sell beverages of any kind, drinks were available at the Gramercy. Billy received the loudest cheer when he appeared onstage. The band wasted no time, opening with a Jam then segued into a long Playing in the Band. They were clearly "on." A fun Good Lovin' was next. Right before Bobby stepped to the microphone for the 3d verse or so, Phil started playing a funky bass line and the lyrics would have to wait. No complaints. Every member seemed to be enjoying themself but Phil and Billy especially; both had big grins on their faces for much of the set. After a well-played and -received Wheel, the highlight of the set appeared, a refreshing Franklin's Tower. Bobby changed the pace of the lyrics to all the Jerry songs, especially Franklin's, so we wantabe singers in the crowed were a little off with the lyrics. The band encored with an enjoyable Touch of Grey, which seemed especially poignant with Bobby's graying hair, beard and mustache. We will survive!

The 3/30/09 NYC Shows: Set 1

I was fortunate enough (thank you Rhino/Dead/Marye!!!) to have attended the "Taxi Tour" shows yesterday. The first show was at the Orensanz, an intimate former synagogue, where Bobby, Phil and Warren performed accoustically. I arrived around 415 (the show began at 5pm) and found out from my friend that I had just missed the boys hanging out with the small group of Heads outside. Oh well. The show was AWESOME! Before starting, the band asked the crowd to keep noise to a minimum and the request was heeded, so I suspect that the recordings sound great. Bobby forgot a verse in the set-opening Dire Wolf but the crowd helped him out. None of us thought we would hear a mind-blowing deep space Bird Song at 5:15 on a Monday, but that is exactly what happened. This was followed by a nice Cumberland Blues, an unexpected Pride of Cucomonga, and an equally surprising Lazy River Road, and a fun Casey Jones. At this point it was 6 pm, the band had to get to the next location, and we didn't think there would be an encore. Fortunately, we were wrong. Ripple. Perfect ending to a perfect set.

Hal saw the Doobs in Naperville

Last year, they were rockin, and it was funny but not everyone knew the songs....just felt the vibe. It was the closest I've come to a Dead experience that I've been to in about 4 1/2 years.

ABB baby, cuz I'm always tied to the Whip Post.

anyone going to the show

Wondered if any of my brothers and sisters of the vine are going to any of the spring shows. I am going to the one at the Gorge. Looks like we have a group of 12 or so carpooling from Spokane to there. Plus we get to see the ABB! I'm sure I'll enjoy the Doobies too. I know we are lucky.

I need help with set list

I have two shows that I would like to vine but I cant find any info about them.

# 1. Bobby & the Midnights, Reggae Sunsplash, Bob Marley Center Kingston Jamaica, Nov 27 1982 (This is part of the Nov 26 show, but the set took place after midnight, so the 27th)
I have six songs from this night starting with women are smarter. Mostly I want to make sure the date is right and its never been released.

# 2. Mickey Hart and The Marin County Collective, Mickey's Barn, Novato, Ca. 1972.1973
I will just copy and paste the set list. This is very strange stuff. Its a good reason why you shouldnt mix cocaine/lsd and a barn full of recording equipment. The best way to describe it is a combination of rap and a horror movie sound track. PM me if you can help. Thanks

1. Fire On The Mountain
2. Ghost Riders In The Sky
3. It Makes Me Feel Mad #1
4. You Know I Will
5. Is Anyone There

Oh, please...

Nobody will top my New Year's Vine-a-rama - I got eight vines in that one box from Ltapilot, plus a buttload of individual vines ( with a couple of those fifteen disc monsters) -- I still suffer from CTS from all the disc switching.
