    Better the 2nd time

    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.

    And ultimately,

    soon you will not hear his voice

    Aww, geez, such sad news

    I can't even bear to say it. Another loss, seems more close and mournful.

    Two-Night Two-Step

    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

    Dead Co Debuts

    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):

    Alligator
    Candyman

    brent?

    is it true D&C have played no Brent songs? I "heard" that recently, but have not researched it. Maybe they'll surprise us!

The bus came by. We got on. That's how it all began. Almost as soon as the Fare Thee Well shows were announced, folks started planning to meet in Chicago. They met. They connected. Things were never the same. And now, further! Or maybe Furthur.

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!

Weeeeellllll, ASL,
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?

Hi again.

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.
