Don't Panic - 06/24/05 | Red Rocks

Today thousands of Widespread Panic fans awoke still scratching their heads over last night's second set at Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Of course your hard-core Panic fan will analyze each set they play with both the precision of a Talmudic scholar, perfected in the mold of the Grateful Dead scholars that came before them, and the intense focus of a NASCAR mechanic, the perfect blend of rock and roll creation and down-home country-fuck.

Where Did My Mind Go: The Pixies & Violent Femmes | Red Rocks

As I awoke that Sunday, there was not much desire to trek up to Red Rocks to see a group that I was only vaguely familiar with.  I had had one of those horrible, no good, very bad weeks and did not think the Pixies were capable of solving any of my issues.  However, knowing that I had only heard pleasant statements about the Pixi

DSO Provides Fun & Nostalgia in NY

I made a deal with my wife that if I could get the kids to bed, so that everything at the ol' homestead was settled and peaceful, then I could go to the show.  So I went, though I was delayed enough by my two daughters that I arrived at the tail end of Dark Star Orchestra's first set.  DSO is not

Phishy, Phishy: How do you get your Phix?

A couple of weeks ago Mike asked me to go to the Phix show at the Fox and write a review; I'm not going to write a review of a cover band, I told him.

5.8.77 - Cornell University - 28 Years Later...

On the anniversary of one of the all-timers, this show is held so dear by so many deadheads that it is one of the true links for newbie to old-timer (as someone notes below).  It has almost invariably been one of the first tapes of a show that we first had our minds blown by and one of the first tapes that we literally wore out...most of us know the Betty Board with the Minglewood fade in and the chunk missing (Ouch!) from Lazy Lightning>Supplication which otherwise is of great quality.  My highest recom

The Dead @ Garden State Arts Center | Review

The first night (8/10) was really nice.  We had outstanding weather, and the crowd was mellow.  As always there was lots of fun to be had in the parking lot and on the lawn.  I like PNC - the people who work there aren't lamers like the some of the people at Jones Beach.  On the way into the show we saw some interesting things..  One guy tried to smuggle beer in by storing where the sun don't shine.  Well, ok, not exactly!  He tied a jacket around his waste and lined the inside of the jacket with beer cans.

The Dead & Deadheads celebrate Jerry's Birthday | Saratoga 2004

Last night was fun...the problems were many and it was quite revealing to me why I have moved on from this scene and band, but I had a great time singing and dancing and especially enjoyed all the ballads!

Phil & Trey | 2004

Truly amazing, that is all that really needs to be said about these two! I recently attended the two Phil shows at Red Rocks, and the reuniting show with Bobby in Oklahoma. They left me speechless and wanting more. Of course, being in school, for me all good things come to an end. However, I know that Phil will still be playing that bass until the last breath he takes, and for that I am forever grateful.

Trey at Alpine!

I just have to agree with the other commentaries on the Trey Anastasio concert at Alpine Valley! Trey and the band were outstanding! I also read that Trey commented that Alpine Valley is "really the best place to play in the world." Whether Trey said that or not - it is true!

Phil Lesh with RatDog in St. Louis | Review

If one considers how Grateful St. Louis is for The Kind, The Shwag and Jake's Leg, there's no doubt that this city certainly knows how to honor its Dead. Truckin' into town are two of the ultimate Dead cover bands. Straight out of the kennel comes RatDog.
