I'd like to see an acoustic set from this band, but I don't think NYE would work very well. NYE needs to be a high energry, balls to the fucking wall show imo. After 2 nights of dancin and partying, people would fall asleep during a NYE acoustic set


thanks for saying that much better than i did. your post exactly sums up my thoughts. i'm all for Furthur doing acoustic sets, but NYE just isn't the right night to do it.

Maybe I'm wrong...but I like to think us "deadheads" are sophisticated enough to enjoy a nice acoustic set before the fireworks start on NYE.

i think so as well but i'd like the placement at the very end of the night....maybe a special encore of a trio of accoustic tunes or something to that nature, but a little natural love to start the show would be just as welcome!

So I was hoping for an acoustic set during the New Year Run but after seeing spring tour with 8 nights at Beacon I wouldn't be surprised if they did some acoustic there (like RCMH 1980)

I'm in, but I say add a 3rd mini acoustic set on dec 30th. Maybe a 5 or 6 song acoustic 2nd set on dec 30th, and then a rocking electric 3rd set. That acoustic set for Phil's 70th was awesome, though alot of the awesomeness was generated by Jackie Greene's Brokedown, and Chris Robinson's Peggy-O and 2 Souls in Communion.

I would love to see an acoustic set with monkey and the engineer!
Phil never plays acoustic bass does he?

phil has played a regular acoustic bass before too, i don't know when i wasn't there i want to say philharmonia last year?

he capped off the phil a thon in 2007 with an acoustic 2nd set and he played the stand up, wasn't a big fan, not his style.
who else is gonna bring you, a broken arrow?
