furthur draws more peeps. dso is for kids who never got to see the GRATEFUL dead, and woud like to hear a show from 74 plalyed note for note. im not into it. seen dso, and was bored to tears, most large cities have better dead cover bands that pllay at local pub for much lower cover. furthur, its hot or cold. but when its hot, its hot, and when its not well, thats why you go on tour. i actually prefer ratdog to furthur, but i prefer furthur to 09 de3d, warren was way too southern rock. if phil could settle his beef with kimock and kimock would play with them , that my friend would be kick ass, ohh yeah the rythem devils too, core four, steve, jeff, bada bing, im downloadin shows and savin up for tour. but furthur is fun, and i willl be at shoreline. oh my entire of furthur is based on seeing them once dec. 30th 09. i have heard they have gotten better. they rocked that night though, and phil had the lit up bass, but alas, some folks like dso, i say go see em both and decide for yourself, take the pepsi challenge.
