By request, a gathering spot for Chicago-bound folks to connect and plan!
A good time was had by all, in spite of the lawn area being oversold by three-fold, in my opinion.
And the brief summer shower, even as the horizon cleared for the sunset, came just as Bobby reached the crescendo on Looks Like Rain; perfectly timed.
As a 50th birthday present we brought some friends to their first exposure of any kind to this world. They had a blast.
And made so memorable for the incident of the friendly fellow who approached us early in the first set and asked if he could leave his Birkenstocks under our beach chairs. We then proceeded to share some of what he grows himself, and did not see him again until the end of intermission. He was OVERJOYED to find us and his sandals. Our friends now have an indelible impression of the nature of interactions between Heads.
By now you will have heard of the continuing modifications to the treatments of the old song pairs: China and Rider as bookends to the set rather than a doublet: anything is possible.
And what Mr. Mayer did with Deal was epic. EP-IC.
Looks like just exactly perfect weather at Fenway tonight & tomorrow. Don't be late – don't want to miss getting blasted out of the ballpark! And, just curious, who's in the SSDDer contingent there? Onward y'all!
BTW: Bit the bullet and got a brand new Oat Cart last week with mucho mas "After Midnight Oat-age". Just love that "new cart smell!"
Check inbox in a day or so, and make sure you got free bandwidth.....
Hey rgerrgelis et alii, Glad to hear the feared cloud of stagnation is lifting so more and more spontaneity can seep into Dead & CO '17. You could tell from the nugs tease last night that Burgettstown was going new places (I'd love to hear the whole show). And those Boulder shows were definitely high in the Rockies. Looks like a few clouds may keep temps down in Boston so y'all can better meld with the music. Onward Daydreamers!
Great show, got an Easy Wind, Throwing Stones and a belated Flag Day Liberty. Highlight was Lil John doing his best David Lindley falsetto Stay imitation on The Wheel.
Only gripe Pennsylvanias 5 0. For Chrissakes, you think El Chappo was in attendance. What a bunch of tools.
ASL and Roadking, Enjoy Fenway kids!
as an aside, a few weeks ago on another subform my concern that setlists have stagnated since 10/2015....
To quote Rosanne Rosanadana...."nevermind"

Just waiting on Boo Boo buddy....
to infinity and beyond...
It's Tuesday – must be Atlanta. Have a smooth, inter-dimensional ride tonight Tony and Lana and any other SSDDers lucky enough to be there! Hard to believe the 40th anniversary of your first show at Raceway Park is less than 3 months away! Celebrate! –(Oat) Jeff
