On Sunday (September 26th), Phil Lesh & Friends finished 5 nights of public dress rehearsals at the Sweetwater Station in Larkspur, California. Phil wanted to play in front of a live crowd before kicking off an east coast swing. All 5 shows were sold by word of mouth - and tickets for the venue (capacity 150) were gone in a flash. Lesh was backed by bandmates Larry Campbell, Jackie Greene, Steve Molitz and John Molo. Barry Sless and Teresa Williams were also in the mix.
The setlists featured Grateful Dead nuggets like "Terrapin Station," "Alabama Getaway," and "West L.A. Fadeaway," along with Lesh's cover of Ryan Adams' "Let it Ride."
Last night (September 30th), Phil & Friends opened a series of east coast shows with the Allman Brothers Band at the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland.
