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 was a bit dissapointed with the show...and i was trippin! (and there in person) thats saying alot

first set was a total bore until scarlet>music>dancin, which was great, super on point and tight well jammed music never stopped...tho dancin was real short, although equally as well played as music never stopped. i was expecting a HUGE funky jam and got out of my seat ready to dance, but there was no huge funky jam and i was left swaying awkwardly as the set ended, waiting to groove to a groove that never came.

second set started good with a searing after midnight, always a fave JK song for me. the jam out of after midnight was a highlight of the set and absolutely fantastic, got very spacy and i thought they might bring us the second verse of dark star to complete the song from the previous night...but then playin, which went nowhere. twice the band lost track, and phil had to start a new jam, none of which ever went anywhere interesting, before the jamming petered out again for them to play fantasy, which was nothing special, into wheel which had some ok jams, but by that point the wheel was a big downer, after a hugely disappointing playin>fantasy i was ready for the big guns...DSv2 or H>S>F or LIG...but no, it was the wheel...it was a great wheel but the set needed something a bit more face melting and danceable

then UBC! finally some spots for good jamming tho UBC is not my favorite song, and it was another downer(just for me personally i know lotsl ike the song all the time, just my personal preference there) to hear them go into it, but once that jam started...oh man...that was special. unbroken chain was EASILY the best thing i heard all three nights. the jam was just monster, a mind melter. then a great let it grow followed by an UJB with unusually sweet and trippy jams. again thought they might go into dark star in the middle of the song(i was really waiting for that second verse, lol)

then third set, i figure, ok last year second set was the start to finish monster, maybe this year the third set will kick our asses. the second set had some monster portions, but they energy didnt quite seem to carry thru the whole set, and when they can carry the energy that long it really makes a world of difference in the quality of playing. we still have born cross eyed/new potato, dew, H>S>F, terrapin, and DSv2...so this set will be the face melter right?

after the usual sugar mag they went into a great help>slip, simply fantastic, excatly the face melting daceable goodness i only got from music never stopped, after midnight, chain, let it grow and uncle johns band thus far. the great help>slip culminated in a simply ok franks with SSDD.

i really like the sugar mag SSDD sandwich with the help>slip>franks in the middle, awesome move on the setlist front and came out very well played. they jammed SSDD after sugar mag, and the crowd started singing along, and the band responded by playing the verse section, it was a pretty sweet moment...then touch, which was actually pretty good, for me touch is usually just a fun ender or encore but this one had some real magic to it. and then they put their instruments down, i wanted to get up and yell ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME???? that was hardly third set, there have been encores as long as that. i mean, if the third set was that long, but the second and third sets were searing hot jamming all night i would not have noticed, but after an evening of letdowns and missed transitions with scattered moments of greatness, the short length of the third set was icing on the cake

terrapin encore was ok, bummed they skipped the suite for brokedown. another missed opportunity for good jamming. from what i have seen this year, shoreline and NYE run, this band is not getting any better...but i was only able to catch a small portion of what they played so i dont have a full view...but aLL the shows i saw last year had a bit more oomph than NYE and shoreline. second sets on 12/29 and 12/30 were monsters, wonderful from start to end. eyes>mtn song>other one> viola was insane and the jack straw was amazing, the jam into dark star, and the days between were highlights

i had a great time and its still very very magical music, i liked the music last night better than most any other show i could have been at anywhere, but compared to past offerings from furthur, especially with the bar set so high from last NYE, this show just fell flat. the music was still great, but there were to many missed opportunities to make magic when i know what this band can do.

and all weekend the transitions were VERY rough, lots of stopping then starting again

DL, I feel you man. We felt the same way. Very rough run, rough start, just lacking the drive and passion of last NYE run. The moments that shined for us were when Jeff let his freak flag fly and went off on a tear. Those are the moments that keep me coming back to this band right now. Its all about the Jeff for me. I think he is more of a leader for Furthur than any other band member because no matter whats going on, good or bad, Jeff can take the wheel and pilot that ship wherever he wants to take it. He has the technical chop, the artistry, and the soul to push limits in the way that Jerry did, and I fucking love him for that. If it wasnt for him, I dont think Id have seen Furthur as much as I have.

I think Sat night was epic, psycho out of the blocks, out, even better than the four fall shows I saw. Like last year, I had to miss NYE (family), but Sunday was fun too, although not quite as interstellar for me as the entire Saturday night (I may have been depleted). Both set lists were killer (I couldn't have wished for better). I'm a big, big Keith fan, but Chimenti is the best pianist with the outfit ever (as my brother, the professional jazz piano player, said, "He is a monster!"). I also loved what JK was doing, by far my favorite post Jerry, and now he's got his voice and taking it out. For Phll and Joe, nothing can be said, insane, and Bob was pushing this finely tuned band with virtuosic intensity. Love the sweet vocals. I'm calling Saturday night my favorite ever (including GOTV (2010), PDX this fall, and the past two NYE runs), out, tight, mean, on fire (like the crowd).

After years of looking at the posts, mainly biting my tongue, I am finally finally finally happy with what I have been reading about everyones understanding of What Furthur is and Who Furthur is! Love it. You guys are mostly DEAD on in regards to Jeff, JK, Joe and JP and Sunshine. I mean DEAD on (lol).

I remember the days when Uncle Jerry just wasn't in it for groups of shows (almost tours) and the music was "flat". I am not sure Furthur can have a "flat" show because someone is always stepping it up! Even when a brother falls short, someone kicks it and takes it back Furthur. There are highlights in every single show.

40 shows in 2012 (Only)
74 shows in 2011
82 in 2010

I am too embarrassed to say how many I have seen live - but I am not embarrassed to say I have heard every one of these soundboards more than once - and I can not find a flat show! Someone just goes off! (Or Russo's third appendage is ever so more apparent)

I'm not sure about the first two nights... Listened to the 30th, it was... uh... quick. But a fun listen.

I, only attended NYE. Was miracled on facebook by someone in the band. I have to say that other than Celebration, I thought the band took off and never let up, from George Harrison's Any Road to the Brokedown. Easily the best show of the run. The third set was amazing. As was the entire second set and most of the first set. As good as any of the Edgefield shows. Which I caught this fall, too.

Give 30th another listen. IMO it was one of Furthur's best ever. 29th had a great second set, pretty good first - I think you'd like it.

Some Happy Campers in this shot...


Campers is the right term. The group of young men from Colorado on the right of the photo got in line at 3:30 am. Ken, Wes, and Leo were with 3 or 4 others, including another named Ken and one named Connor - not Picasso Moon Connor...

Happy New Year everyone! I've been supercharged from 3 Furthur shows to end one year and a brunch and a bar show at Terrapin Crossroads to start the next. Best wishes to all for a year filled with peace and joy...
Thank You Jerry

Ya know, after listening more closely, I believe I did have the attendance bias bliss. Which allowed me to overlook some of the messier parts of NYE. Like.... the Playin.... which had it's moments, but seemed to lack cohesiveness.

But honestly, there so many fun musical and magical moments, that I can't complain. The Let it Grow is Deep! Uncle Jon's is all violin and no silver mine. UBC is played like the music is fine lace.
