Nice....

Any show w/ "Brown Eyed Women" & "Peggy-O" works for me. I've noticed that quite a few of the Dick's Picks that I have feature those two. So I'm assuming tonight was smoking hot

Oh ya, I guess "Dark Star" was probably nice too...

Warren did a nice job with Easy Wind- Death Don't Have No Mercy. Sailor/Saint was a strong finish to the first set. Looks Like Rain was well done. The whole second set was strong. Nice drums/space. Phil and Ace Weir were both on. I give a rare "A" for this show. Very well done.

I agree that Easy Wind was great but the rest of the show was really inconsistent IMO. What was with the long break after the acoustic part ? Weir seemed really out of it but everyone else held it together. I'm starting to feel bad for him. I think he needs a long break from the road.

There were some real bright moments like the end of saint and GDTRB but I'm tired of inconsistency from this band especially at $ 100.00 a pop.

Over all the day a was fun. The lot was chill and so was the crowd.

I agree that 100 a pop is way too much. Also irritating were the 8.75 beers. I got a craft draft before the show. Had to settle for a coors lite at halftime. Ouch.
I liked Alabama Getaway. When Warren feels like he can cut loose, the band really starts to gel. Weir is weird. Age magnifies his weirdness. But he's been that way forever. He's just older now. I thought both him and Phil played extremely well. The drummers were great. Mickey was playing what looked like an updated "beam". Very nice drums/space. Almost worth the price of admission for me.

I was there last night - what a great show!

I was stunned at the start of Jack Straw by how much Warren sounded like Jerry. His tone is very different from when he played in PNF back in the day, and also The Dead tour in '04.

Thw whole band played with energy and seemed really inspired. This was my best GD related experience since I saw Phil & Friends with RatDog in Hartford in '01.

The Dark Star was magnificent. They took their time exploring Deep Space, and lead into drums with several Other One, Lovelight and Caution teases/jams.

Also, as mentioned above, Warrens version of Easy Wind was fantastic. He was Garcia on guitar, McKernan on vocals - yet still all Haynes!

I wish I was going to MSG tonight and Hartford tomorrow.

I thought Bobby sounded fairly good vocally; certainly better than he did at that last ABB show at the Beacon. Great song selection (loved the Dylan covers) and Warren's playing was great! Peggy-O was outstanding. Much different sound than the 2004 shows. Had a great time; great crowd, and the coliseum staff were pretty cool.
As for those beers, it killed me to pay $8.75 for a Coors! Not my choice, but when it's between that or Bud.....Only sprung for one of those, had a few better brands for cheap from the lot before the show.
Overall, a great night, and close to home!

Wow! Choosing between Bud and Coors is like choosing between castor oil and lemon juice, and at those crazy prices!!! That is why I save my drinking for home these days.

Hate to rain on the happy parade but........Crowd seemed in to it from the git-go , but hell it's Friday night! First 2 songs Great and then the big slow down began. Easy wind was a nice outside the box song but the jamming seemed to meander aimlessly as they came around to Death Don't have No Mercy. At this point I was getting annoyed at how buried the drums were in the mix but it could have been the seats which were in the 4th row of the 300 level and on even with the back line of the stage. ( Was basically looking right over Mickey's shoulder as he had his kit kind of facing towards Bill's set up ) There were speakers for behind the stage and the sides behind the stage and we were right in line with one of the PA stacks but the sound never got better. I've always loved the Lost Sailor > Saint of Circumstance combo and was hoping for a short upbeat song going into break but that was the end of set 1. Accoustic set might have been the hoighlight of the show IMO , but the entire 2nd set seemed WAY to mellow after Alabama Getaway , with the whole Jam >Dark Star > Drums > Space followed by Knockin' on Heavens Door . Which was actually played nicely but this was a completer energy kill. At this point I saw plenty of folks leaving and they didn't go to the bathroom or snack stand , they didn't come back. After finally getting to a more upbeat song , Not Fade Away , I looked at my watch and knew a one song encore was going to be it. Touch of Grey was a nice finish but to sum up , I rate this show under "Disappointed"

Something from Hartford. (I thought MSG was better but Hartford was very good considering.)

Grateful Dead Delivers Three-Hour Jam Session At XL Center

By THOMAS KINTNER | Special to the Courant
10:34 AM EDT, April 27, 2009

The Grateful Dead has reassembled several times since its breakup in the wake of Jerry Garcia's 1995 death, but its current tour under the name The Dead is its first since it went on hiatus in 2004. Sunday night the band brought more than three hours of exploratory jams to the XL Center in Hartford for an audience that reveled in the indulgences that are the band's specialty.

Founding member Bob Weir, who at 61 sports a large mop of white hair and bushy moustache that with a little work could get him a job just down Farmington Avenue as a Mark Twain impersonator, joined with more recent addition Warren Haynes to dictate much of the show's action with their electric guitar interplay and vocals, beginning with their dual handling of the breezy, free-spirited opener "Bertha." Weir wrested simmering blues licks from his guitar during the slow moving, 11-minute jam "Little Red Rooster," coolly barking its lyrics as Jeff Chimenti broadened its sound with robust swatches of piano and organ.

With the interlocking drum work of Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart loading its juicy chug, Haynes ladled vocal grit across the top of "All Along the Watchtower" while his decorative playing punctuated its thick sway. His own "Glory Road" made for a mellow flow, and transitioned comfortably to the slow burn of "West L.A. Fadeaway." Coloring the rhythm section was the fluid bass work of Phil Lesh, who thickened a meandering take on the Beatles' "Tomorrow Never Knows."

Much as the group's communal followers picked up where they left off in a room where patchouli wasn't the only familiar odor, the six-piece act has lost none of its longstanding penchant for taking circuitous paths through tunes, whether a robust rendition of the Band's "The Weight," or a lengthy float through the blues-lined "Black Peter." Its signature indulgences crossed the line from palate cleansing gear change to yawn-inducing interlude in the Weir-Hart-Haynes concoction "Space," but expanded the dance enticements of "King Solomon's Marbles" in a chugging jam.

Haynes showered high tone licks onto the percolating foundation laid down by Kreutzmann and Hart in "Viola Lee Blues," and Weir prodded gamely the bounding closer "Samson and Delilah" as the group coalesced in lively fashion behind him. The encore was a chance to cool down, as Weir captained an easygoing reading of "Ripple" while a community that has never lost its taste for the song's cosmic-style folk optimism enthusiastically chanted along.

The Dead's show Sunday night included the following songs: "Bertha," "Till the Morning Comes," "Little Red Rooster," "Row Jimmy," "All Along the Watchtower," "Glory Road," "West L.A. Fadeaway," "Cumberland Blues," "The Weight," "Tomorrow Never Knows," "Black Peter," "Greatest Story Ever Told," "Space," "King Solomon's Marbles," "Viola Lee Blues," "Samson and Delilah," (Encore) "Ripple."
