Tonight the action takes place on the Brooklyn side of this bridge!
Nice photo. Funny though, it was taken on the Manhattan side even though you indicated Furthur was playing on the Brooklyn side of the bridge.
BTW, any of you out of towners looking for something to do today pre show, take a walk across the Brooklyn bridge. There's some awesome views, and it's free!!! And don't any of you intrepid travelers have any reservations about riding the subway.
We had a nice time and Im thrilled everyone loved the show, unfortunately we thought it was a bit of a clunker, but sometimes its just how you're feeling and what the show is aren't right on track. Hey Pocky Way opener was good, i thought the Pawtucket version was better and since I was there for that one, i didnt expect another so soon. Greatest Story and Crazy Fingers were excellent and started getting me there. I agree that the pace of Thin Man was a bit slow for me, and took some wind out of my sails a bit. Im not really a late era guy, so Built to Last was fun and solidly played but not pumped for it. Another Let it Ride, i certainly did not need another one after Pawtucket. Ok song but i really wanted a rocker to get me going. Which they then delivered with Jack Straw. Theybripped it like always, but i still thought the Pawtucket one was better. Still very happy and danced like mad to close out the set.
Was expecting a fast paced scorching second set after a slower first. It went the opposite way. Very intense playing but i felt like the tempo of the set and songs was very off. The Scarlet>fire was great, thevtransition seemed a bit forced but I was happy as could be. Then we got Weather>let it grow. Strong singing especially on the Let it Grow I thought, very moving. Still i thought the placement was odd after Scarlet>fire. Then a big ole Dark Star. Very melty and awesome. Will relisten asap. Still added to the anxious waiting feeling i had all night, like ok here we go. I guess my heart was just set on a big rockin party show, as opposed toa real mindbender. Then Unbroken Chain. I could not believe it was another slower song. The jam was pretty good though. Again had that here we go feeling, to getva Death DHNMercy. Beautiful rendition, but i was getting sleepy. Just combo of too many drinks, bowls and slow tunes. The Not Fade Away closer was great, seemed short but had the usual loving sing/clap along that i love so much. Ripple was beautiful. Lovely way to end the show.
The fireworks were great in the second set. Hard to remember which songs they were during. Everyone was in a great mood and lots of love everywhere. Great to spend a few minutes with the FFF crew before the show. The 2hr ride home felt like 5. We have a wedding tonight and we are psyched for Bethel! Hope to find the flag again and have a great time. For all going tonight, have an amazing time. M glad you got a TR stream, awesome!
If that jubilee don't come, maybe I'll meet you, on the run
