Re: Ex-Bassist for the Grateful Dead Strikes a Deal

#293471 9 months ago
A lot to digest and much interpretation. Many funny comments too.......somehow I don't think there will be residency in Lebanon KS.

LOL. Sorry brother!

I guess the one thing that seems plainly clear is that this is a business. Many times for me I get too wrapped up in the "all good" feelings and forget this is a business and people want to make money, not just music.

That doesn't ruin it for me but it does diminish the "hippie mysticism" element which I still like to hold on too.............

Good for Phil, but I hope this doesn't mean the same people scarfing up all the tickets for a 7-night run, etc. The article mentions Nov. 14 in Williamsburg. Is that Williamsburg, VA? 'Cuz that's the day before my birthday & we'd DEFINITELY have to go! Didn't see any shows listed for then...


I think the Williamsburg being referred to here, is the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn, where the Brooklyn bowl is located.

I did two Furthur shows at the Cap in Apr and I loved the venue. The cops were cool with Shakedown including drinking beers from cups. Its a 6 hour drive from DC, I stayed at the Marriot which was pricy but with a Govt disc it was priced OK. Its a 20 min walk to the venue although the area late at night on weekends is a little questionable.


I have stayed both in Hawthorne, about 15 minutes away by car, and in Stamford, about 15 minutes by train (The train station is literally next to the theater). Each of these was nice and in the $90-$110 average per night (before taxes) range. Much less expensive than dealing with the city. Although Portchester is a little rundown, I have not found it to be questionable at all safety wise. In fact, I have found people to be very friendly and have not had any negative experiences at all, after almost twenty concerts in the last year.

Currently listed for the 14th at Brooklyn Bowl, is a DJ Questlove show. But that doesn't start until 11.
I'm thinking it would be a small promotional thing. Maybe TFB.
But I'm just speculating, based on what I've read.
We'll know soon enough.

Outside of TXR, he will do 45 shows. 30 are at the Cap Theater. 4 or 5 others, in various venues or festivals.
That still leaves 10 shows. I saw nothing about him not playing Broomfield. He's talking about residencies. Why
couldn't Broomfield be one? I guess we'll find out soon enough. He just doesn't want to do large tours of one night
stands. That I can understand. Plus the shows we'll get at TXR. Phil could still be doing 60 or 70 shows a year.
Not exactly retirement. We will get our Phil.


I know but this is the part from the article that gets me:

the only shows he will play not connected with Mr. Shapiro are those at Mr. Leshs own club, Terrapin Crossroads

Mr Shapiro has no connection to the 1st Bank Center. Just sayin

Your saying, there's no chance it could happen? I'm just saying it's possible, based on his previous desire to play there.
