same here...my son introduced me to JRAD. really enjoying t.
Greetings fearless Daydreamers...got licorice?
Hey Geomeister and All -- fell off the bus for a bit. Glad to be back.
Hey Graceful Fred,
We'll be in Boulder this year -- if you feel like meeting up, please let me know! What an incredible weekend it was last year. You guys won't be disappointed!
we have a financial squeeze at present and likely will not travel out there.
We're looking into selling the tix, but maybe someone out there can give me some insight:
There are lots of tickets offered on Stubhub, but it appears that the Folsom box office site also still has many on offer.
Do people just not look at the stadium site first?
Ugh, sorry to hear you won't be there. I'm not sure if people go to Folsom first or not. I remember last year there were still a lot of tix available leading up to the Boulder shows, but by the time we got to Boulder, people were having a hard time finding...so not really sure how it goes.
Hope you guys are doing well! Happy Summer!
"Whether you love the Dead or have never listened to them (no one who gives them an honest-to-goodness chance ever ends up disliking them), these two concerts are not to be missed."
from the Chicagoreader in anticipation of 2 nights at Wrigley.
For each of the 3 two-night stands so far this summer, the first night has had a song debut;
It Must Have Been the Roses being the latest.
What's left for the rest of the summer? Place your bets:
Attics of my life
Dupree's Diamond Blues
Me and Bobby McGee
Might as Well
Mountains of the Moon
New Potato Caboose
So Many Roads
The Golden Road (To Unlimited Devotion)
Till the Morning Comes
To Lay Me Down
is it true D&C have played no Brent songs? I "heard" that recently, but have not researched it. Maybe they'll surprise us!
I have not seen any record of Dead Co performing a Brent song.
Two omissions from my list of possibles (besides Brent and Keith-Donna songs):
thanks for reply on Brent songs
This summer's pattern for debuts by Dead Co held over the weekend:
the first night at Wrigley had the first "To Lay Me Down".
But as they come East, there are no more two-night stands on the schedule; the next is the finale in Boulder.
So no more premiers? Inquiring minds want to know
it is spot on and done very nicely. Thanks for a good time with a twist.
I can't even bear to say it. Another loss, seems more close and mournful.
I just heard the news.
I know it's been a while, but I'm moved to write by last night Nuggs broadcast of the Halloween show from MSG last year.
It started with the Ripple tribute to Hunter, but that was not all:
every song that night was a Hunter song (except the Werewolves encore).
I was at that show but don't think I realized as it was unfolding what the connection was.
It made it more meaningful to listen to again knowing that each song was chosen with Hunter in mind, and appreciating how many lyrics referred to songs: of course,
Let there be songs to fill the air;
Light the song with sense and color;
Sometime the songs we hear are just songs of our own; and of course,
How does this song go?
And Oteil sang his heart out on China Doll; really moving.
The storyteller makes no choice
soon you will not hear his voice
where DOES the time go?
Sure glad that was not really the final shows.
