Re: Set List 11/16 Columbus, OH!

#87400 2 years, 5 months ago
Well I didn't really get in to them until about 2 years ago and I am only 24 so I was sort of oblivious to the dead in their hay-day. A friend tried to get me to go to the July 2nd show last year which I declined and am kicking myself now for not going. I love their music but after seeing the show the other night really opened my eyes to what it was about.

I have been into the Grateful Dead since my first shows in 1992. I seen Ratdog a handful of times being from Cincinnati Ohio Furthur has only came within a reasonalble driving distance time wise for me a few time once at last years Cincy show and Ive oand then now this Columbus show. I really loved the whole show had great floor seats and the security was cool and lax didnt hassle people for dancing in the isle on the floor either. i think Furthur has came a long way as a band they really seem to flow well when jamming in betwwen songs the way the Grateful Dead always did. John seems to be able to lead into songs the way Jerry did as a guide for the band all the while letting Bobby and Phil still have the spotlight when the time came. They reall have it together. I went to the Columbus show with friends but i have one ticket for the Indy show. i will be going solo for indy. Cant wait to see you all there . Peace

Right now, I can't read too well...

Welcome to the forum shellshocked and darkstarrz!! Don't let the current, hopefully almost over, family feud turn you off.

Finally recovering from the show, what a BLAST! I am a barely 30-something year old recovering-raver. Ive been going to festivals and raves and such since I was 17-18, but didn't get into the Dead until i was about 26. I live near Nelson Ledges Quarry Park and had been going there for 10 years or so until this last year. For those of you who aren't familiar with the quarry, its a totally Dead friendly campgrounds and stage in rural NE Ohio, Dark Star plays there every year, and is a beautiful place that has unfortunately been over run by irresponsible pushers and thus an overwhelming police presence. After falling in love with GD over the past several years, finally took my fiancee to our first show this past March in NYC at Best Buy theater for her 30th bday. Only been to a handful of shows, but overwhelmed by the power of the kind people, amazing music, and the magic of the lot. Totally an amplified version of the beauty that i've experienced in the past at the quarry park, and doesn't have the dark, mechanical undertones that I remember from the rave days (although I do still love electronic music.) Columbus was AMAZING, Deal, He's Gone, Scarlet, Fire, Eyes and Touch were the highlights for me, but the entire show was awesome, the lot was great, and my lady and I had an absolutely amazing time, before, during, and after the show. As others have mentioned, I also am a little wierded out about meeting people from the internet not to mention it was sort of a special date-adventure for me and my girl, so no offense intended by not pursuing a meet up, plus I'm pretty new here anyway. All ranting aside, Im glad everyone else seemed to have a great time in C-bus as well, cant wait to see what the spring dates will be, hopefully coincides with my spring break in NYC like it did last year, love going to New York (total NY pizza junkie)! Oh yeah, how did the feud end up back in here? I thought a separate thread was made for that, this is a Columbus thread!

Hey Wuby, I'm in your neck of the woods down in Kent. Yes, Nelson Ledges is/was a gem of a spot, but it sure does get crowded these days!!!

So Columbus was a good birthday show. We hot-tubbed at the hotel with beverages before setting off for the show. Friends brought me a little birthday cake, I decided we'd save that for munchies after the show. Excellent decision that was!

Very nice folks, inside and out. We had been in the building earlier to buy tickets and I asked about sound check and a worker said it should be between 5 and 6, you can probably hear it from right here. Used the bathroom and tried to sneak a peek, but inside was curtained off behind gates in the hallway. So I figured I'd come back to at least listen. Heard a sound check of Time in Broomfield last year, so thought it'd be cool to report to my friends what they might do. So came back about 5.20, but they had just shut the doors to inside and couldn't hear anything over the advertisements playing. Worst part was on the walk over I had to pee SO BAD, and figured I could still get in like earlier. Thwarted...Curses! I could not fathom trekking back outside in the cold all the way back to the port-a-johns, so I asked if there was anyway I could get inside to the bathroom, thinking no way, but desperation must have shown on my face because this very nice ticket taker lady said "sure, no reason for stress tonight" and escorted me in and back out (no, I didn't hear any sound check ) But I felt it was going to be a good night when the staff is so accommodating!

And a good night it was. Got seats straight back behind sound board, my favorite spot unless i'm real close. Lots of dancing room and you get stereo sound. Surprised me that the whole 2nd tier was curtained off, and with so many empty seats, I thought it might be a low energy show. Deal in my day was more of a closer, so to start off with that energy..well, I was glad to be wrong in my thinking! Jeff was really out there from the get-go, I just love to hear him. And Joe is just a monster back there - he must expend like 10,000 calories a show, seriously. I'm still not a big John fan, seems he's a little out of his league in terms of musical ideas...I like that he's finding his own "voice" and not trying so much to be Jerry, but he leaves too many holes in some places for my satisfaction. He is improving though. Sue already gave a great review, so I won't do my detailed analysis. Suffice to say that I was over the moon to hear my Scarlet, and I am content now (saw the 3 in Eugene and 3 in Red Rocks without one and I was jonesin' - it's my thing I guess).

Glad you had a great Bday show Scarlet!~ I'm in the next college town over, 15min west of you (big mystery, I know) I def wanna make it to the Quarry sometime this spring/summer, maybe even on an off night in the middle of the week just to camp and get silly, and try out our kayaks in the quarry. Ive always had fun there, but like you said it gets reeeeeally crowded these days, last time I was there, (4th of july 2010), we actually had to camp across the street, which was fine with me because there wasn't that wierd kind "the cops are hiding in the trees" vibe that was in the main campgrounds according to a few friends of mine. The year before that, there were a lot sherifs in uniform walking around the campgrounds, which didn't bother me too bad, but just felt strange for the quarry, wasn't used to looking over my shoulder every time I wanted to puff there.
