I was on crutches at last night's show and the DCU employees helped me out right away, so friendly! Wheel tease to start things off, we would not hear it until the end of the second set, the band broke into Here Comes Sunshine! So unexpected, and the rest of the night was filled with surprises like that one. Hell in a Bucket stands out for me, the line "Unable to dance, I'll still crawl" had me holding my crutches screaming with the crowd. Alligator and Cream Puff War were a welcome surprise and then things began getting strange and I remember Scarlet into Fire second set opener was real tropical and spacey all at once with steel drumming mixed in. The jam>drums was spectacular, and another surprise, Slipknot! Then we got the Wheel they teased in the first set and rocked the place till Samson and Delilah which was a little weak but was just a pop on the vinyl of last night's sound. Magic still happens at Dead shows, and Warren is really throwing down. See you all in Hartford!

The energy was amazing!!! Truly a great show. Lots of good vibes inside and out. The place seemed pretty packed, and they knew it. It seemed like they were going to keep it going for a double encore but missed the pivitol note at the end, thats why they are looking at each other like "i thought you were?!?!?!?":) Unbelieveable! Until i saw a guy get smashed in the head with a full beer bottle over a tank then get ambulanced away, shit like that disapoints me, but goddamn was it a good show.

If he is truly a wook hes a wook on a whole other level that we can't even comprehend.

happy 420 from the dead's best friend, the messiah himself, the great president obama: "obama department of justice looks to prosecute medical marijuana providers": . good thing the dead had that little chat with their best friend obama before they played their joke of a show in washington and tipper gore had a guest spot. HOPE AND CHANGE MY ASS! This is after they lied about the new "hands off" approach to medical MJ states. All hail obama and the dead! Socialism at it's finest!

obama needs to get his shit together on this marijuana issue or he will lose my vote to a 3rd party. nice phil zone pic.

^ is running national TV ads calling for legalization starting today. I don't think I have ever seen a legalization commercial. This is good news. As far as the messiah legalizing, we will have to continue the battle on a state level. Drug warrior Rahm Emmanuel would never let bama legalize it.

I can't believe it. These guys have really got the groove right now. This recording is a great taste but i think I'll have to buy a sound board of this one. thanks to ALL of you tapers who are getting this stuff up on the archive. I had a chance to spend the entire afternoon paddling and peddling listening to three of these shows thus far. The show with the Cumberland and Viola Lee Blues are very exciting to listen to. I'm so happy to hear these guys playing so f'n great. The paired string section and this great key playing has really allowed the drummers to tear into the groove nicely as they havent' had a chance to in awhile. Shorelinex2 and a Los Angeles for me.

Anybody have the time when the band starts? The

tickets say 7 o'clock, I hope they've been starting later.

Could someone post what time they have been starting. Thanks,

I think the show got out at around 12:00. I think they took like a 30 min set break.
