Re: DSO Fall Tour

#216796 1 year, 9 months ago
DSO played the Grateful Dead Show from 10/30/1973, with a couple of extra's thrown in.

It was real nice to meet [OneGoodHand] and [irishqueenie] thanks for stopping by to chat a little before the first set and during set break. I usually don't get to move through the crowd when I'm recording and it's nice to talk when the band is not playin'.

It was packed and seemed even more so during the second set, a mixture of polite and rude people. I spent the second set fending people off from my mic stand and recording gear. The venue is an old movie theater, with the seats and carpet ripped off the floor. Turns out the drop ceiling was recently removed after it started to fall apart. It's a nice sounding place and might actually sound better without the ceiling. It's rustic but not like "Bob's Country Bunker" there's no chicken wire in front of the stage though it is definitely not an elegant old theater. Guess they figure why make it pretty when people are gonna spill drinks all over but this may actually encourage carelessness. I'm with irishqueenie and prefer a nice clean venue that the whole crowd treats with respect. The ladies room was rough but not as bad as the horrifically disgusting porta-potties I encountered at a Wilco Show in Cooperstown this past summer.

Unfortunately I wasn't able to get a stream out, talked to the owner who had to heavily secure their wi-fi with continually changing and complicated passwords that they don't give out because way too many people were exhausting their bandwidth by uploading photos to websites. I'll post my recording to LMA when I get a chance, maybe next week.

Dark Star Orchestra put on a fabulous representation of a GD show from days gone by. Will definitely go see them again and sorry that I missed out when they've been through on tour in the past.

Thanks for the review. Looks like it was a good show. The Westcott does seem to get overcrowded easily.
And the crowds seem to be a bit rowdier there. But it's a nice place. And the beer selection is very nice.
They just need to fix up the bathrooms, and control the crowd a bit better.
I can't come down, it's plain to see.
I can't come down, I've been set free.
Who you are, and what you do,
don't make no difference to me.

i had a fantastic time last night, this band was sizzling and it was cool to meet a few more FFF folks digigal and irishqueenie. its cool how the network seems to get a little bigger and stronger at every show, really good feeling. stoked on the setlist, we got a nice dose of cowboy songs in the first set and spacey jams in the second. band was tight, better than i remember them being, and also gave us nearly 4 hours of music, grateful for that. beers were awesome, local middle ages stuff happening on tap for just 4 bucks. nice to see craft beer get the respect it deserves here, the music just sounds better to me with a dank ipa in hand than a shitty adjunct light lager, but thats just me. place was packed though, and as mentioned it got a little rude, but that place is rock and roll, and i guess thats just how they do things. i would pay my ticket price again in a heartbeat to see it again. cant wait for the next one...
...and Im in no hurry, no no no, i know where to go

I had an amazing NYE with DSO and great friends including Alittlefurhter and her super kind husband The band is very good, not as magical as furthur, but hey, if you can't be with the one you love honey, love the one you're with.
FFF! Family is Forever!!!

May God bless and keep you always
May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others
And let others do for you
