Sort of off topic a little, but anyone know of good 24-hour parking near the Warfield, SF for tonight's show. The place we parked in on Fri closed at 4am and that may be too early from what I hear :-)

pretty sure this place (safe and nearby) is open 24 hrs. it says so on their website.

This is the best place to park, just don't walk down 6th Street and you are fine... 5th is better.

That would have been a perfect closer. Now I'm really in a fog. Built to Last was the last album BUT...

Still wish I were there!!

Just wanted to send well wishes to the Bay Area from the East Coast. The Nokia run last fall seemed tough to top, but Phil just keeps breaking barriers with every tour. Have a great time all you Westies!!! Also, just curious if they are still giving out posters for each night. I know they did for the first 2 but I haven't heard anything about that since. Again, have a BLAST!!!

Yes, different posters have been given out each night after the show. The posters are based on a mural painted on the ceiling of the Warfield.


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Deacon Bruce (Deacon_bruce) on Sunday, May 18, 2008 - 06:13 pm: Edit Post

25 songs last night. Whew! And I'm glad they broke out of the pattern of playing albums in the same order as originally released. That frees up the structure for an "anything goes" kind of night. Heck, they may abandon the album concept tonight and just play what they want!

That said, I'll muse over the album concept a bit more, just in case.

The long sets last night bode well for a three set finale to this epic run, I'm thinking. If I had to pick, I know I'd want to include Blues for Allah and Terrapin Station as the 2nd set and 3rd sets (don't care which is where).

It's the first set that I find challenging. I don't get the feeling an acoustic set is in the mix, so Reckoning is out. Of the remaining main run of albums, I also doubt we'll hear Without a Net, Built to Last, In the Dark, Steal Your Face, Shakedown Street or Go to Heaven. That leaves History of the Grateful Dead Vol. 1, Wake of the Flood, and Mars Hotel. Just guessing here, obviously.

Which brings me to the special guest(s). If it's Bob, and I'd enjoy that, I'd go with Wake of the Flood because of the Weather Report Suite. But I have only a limited idea of who may be among the guests tonight. It could be any of the expected, none of them, or someone else altogether. Bobby Weir, Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann, and Barry Sless would seem to be among the most likely.

Bottom line is that I don't really care. I have been so pleased by what I've heard so far that I'm truly satisfied to hear anything they want to play for as long as they want to play it.

B-)

Thanks Bruce and Rob! Thats what I thought. If anyone has links to any pics of this series of posters I would love to see them. Wish I could get these, but I guess its one of those things where you just have to be there. Oh how I wish I could get some great food in the Mission (Cafe Gratitude or a Burrito) and stroll over to the Warfield. What I wouldn't give to have the minimal responsibilities of yesteryear!

has anything new surfaced?


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Steve R (Bossfan950) on Sunday, May 18, 2008 - 08:41 pm: Edit Post

Don't shoot the messenger but a woman I know is an usher at the Warfield. I saw her on Friday night and asked her if the rumors of a 4am show ending were true. She said they were told to be prepared to stay late because they were having a party after the show ended. She knew nothing about a late-late show ending.

I hope she and I are wrong.

Just my take on the 4am thing.
Maybe they are going to serve breakfast to everyone after the show.
That would be a real throwback to the days of old!!!!!


ALSO, I am so psyched about these shows, and I am thrilled for all of you who were able to be there, especially PHIL!

Props to the tapers for bringing the rest of us the next best thing!

This looks like it's been a fun run, but I hope Phil steps outside his bag and plays an improvised list tonight. Whether he's doing the Phil Star Orchestra (Phil Lesh Repertory Ensemble?) album recreation thing or a randomly selected set, I reckon Phil always writes out a setlist these days and very little is "winged". Maybe tonight he'll step out on that ledge again...


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By sound lover (Zeno_marx) on Sunday, May 18, 2008 - 11:16 pm: Edit Post

I don't think GD even came out with a "completely improvised" set list, and if they did, it had been a LONG time since so. Hornsby was somewhat pushing for such things, and he ran into resistance. But this is PL&F, and these fellas, as much as I truly do love what they're doing, aren't ready for that free-form situation. They don't have the backgrounds, nor the minds, for such a thing. I know the romance of it all would feel that much more sweet if they elevated to that level, but it isn't reality. Maybe they'll all get to that point someday, but that day isn't yet.

OK, 9:00, here we go. I'm sitting at home in San Francisco with a very pregnant wife, and this is a pregnant moment, wondering what's it gonna be?

Random thoughts: the 4:00 AM thing is for the staff. They're all losing their jobs after tonight.

AEG Live (Anschutz Entertainment Group) is the promoter taking over the venue, so it will still be a music hall, just not with the history of BGP.

Santana is playing Monday, under the new renters. A sound guy acquaintance who works at the Warfield told me he was offered work on that show.

I hope Phil is playing now.
peace out.

Phil just came out and said it's gonna be a loooooong night with a LOT of special guests...
and even warned of long set breaks because they're just "gonna play whatever" like the old days...
Damn I wish we were all in there!!

My friends have counted seven extra microphones so far....
It's gonna be epic, folks!

i just stepped in---wow

what a weekend, i was fortunate enough to go to tuesday, friday and sunday/monday. Amazing run of shows

at the start of the night tonight phil came out and said it was going to be a long night with many people coming on/off the stage, and they hadn't planned anything and it was going to be spontaneous

the mini acoustic sets were a treat, the jam session with bobby, phil and molo was awesome. The terrapin>rider was great. shakedown street was sweet, lots of good stuff in here.

and props to the lady in front of us with her american beauty jean jacket and the smarties, she was rockin harder than anyone the whole time

too tired, bed time *CRASH*

Thanks~
Just hung up with my friend (who I thought was ready to strangle me...he's the one who diagnosed me "insane" a couple hours ago! LOL)

He said show was great, and he reports that Bob is the "smart man" for leaving when he did.
The rest of us are gonna be hatin' it tomorrow (today).

Thanks again to my favorite friend Matthew Jay! (who incidentally took me to my first show 20+ years ago..this is all your fault!) Dude, YOU'RE the man! Love you for doing this tonight. So funny...and so out of character...I'm still laughing...but you were saved from me talking your ear off throughout whole show... First time for everything! We'll have to reverse rolls next time. I go and dance, you type! Ha!

Okay, off to get a few hours of sleep.
I think we're ALL "dead to the core".

Peace and love~

p.s.
For anyone who's local...come check out Melvin and JGB at the GAMH on Friday night.
I'll be down in front with my camera.
See ya there!

One last thing before I crash...
Kevin, are you the Kevin who SLEPT IN LINE on Market Street with a bunch of us at the Warfield way back when??? I bet not, but if so, glad you're still around!
BTW, what the hell were we thinking? MARKET street! Those were the days...

Whew!

Phil/Bob/Molo trio was amazing. Larry and Bob were pretty great together on The Wheel and NFA too.

Larry/Jackie was awesome too, I would pay to see the two of them again any day. They played at least 3 or 4 more songs not listed above, including a couple of instrumentals with Larry on fiddle, one of which was apparently called "Warfield Waltz."

Instrumental Stella Blue literally brought me to tears. Too perfect for words. When they started up I was instantly thinking who the fuck is going to sing this, but Larry's pedal took the melody and sounded like a chorus of fucking angels. Karan's fingers were dancing at the end too. Un-fucking real. Pretty sure Phil blew Larry a bunch of kisses when they finished (unless maybe these were directed at someone in the audience?).

Goddamn I love this music! Thanks Phil for marking the end of an era in such fine style. No one who was at these shows will ever forget them.

i'm not sure they've sang stella yet... seen the instrumental a couple times.... ode to jerry


All the years combine
They melt into a dream
A broken angel sings
From a guitar

In the end there's just a song
Comes crying up the night
Through all the broken dreams
And vanished years

Stella Blue
Stella Blue

When all the cards are down
There's nothing left to see
There's just the pavement left
And broken dreams

In the end there's still that song
Comes crying like the wind
Down every lonely street
That's ever been

Stella Blue
Stella Blue

I've stayed in every blue light cheap hotel
Can't win for trying
Dust off those rusty strings just one more time
Gonna make them shine

It all rolls into one
And nothing comes for free
There's nothing you can hold
For very long

And when you hear that song
Come crying like the wind
It seems like all this life
Was just a dream

Stella Blue
Stella Blue

My notes....

No albums tonight. And while the ushers last night told us they'd play 'til 4am, they only played 'til 3:30. Hah!

=====

Electric Set 1: (Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, John Molo)

# Come Together >
# Jam >
# Dark Star >
# Loose Lucy
# West LA Fadeaway
# The Wheel >
# Not Fade Away

Jeff Chimenti and then Larry Campbell joined in the middle of West LA Fadeaway, and then played the rest of the set

The Come Together > Dark Star > Loose Lucy jam played by Bob, Phil, and John lasted around 40 minutes (Dark Star lasted 20+ minutes). Because they were in a smaller vessel, they were able to go deeper into space during Dark Star than on Wednesday. The West LA Fadeaway was a very nice slow bluesy version, quite nice. The whole set was around 90 minutes I think. Seeing just Bob and Phil play like that was truly special.

=====

Acoustic Set 1: (Larry Campbell and Jackie Greene)

# Your Last Letter ?
# Sing Me Back Home
# Deep Elem Blues
# Instrumental ?
# Warfield Waltz
# Please Come Home ?
# Goodnight Irene ?

I didn't recongize several of these songs. Larry played all sorts of instruments. It was sweet and pretty short....

=====

Electric Set 2: (Phil and Friends)

# Shakedown Street >
# Ball and Chain
# Big River
# Mississippi Half-Step Uptown Toodeloo >
# Jam >
# Althea
# Mexican Girl
# Stella Blue (Instrumental) >
# Sugaree

Mark Karan joined at Mississippi Half-Step and played for the rest of the set.

Ball and Chain and Mexican Girl were the first Jackie songs we heard, both were very well played, concise, rollicking songs. Mark and Larry shared some incredible intertwined guitar work throughout the Half-Step > Althea. Stella Blue was very unusual and beautiful, Larry's pedal steel took the place of the vocal lead. The Sugaree rocked.

=====

Acoustic Set 2: (Jackie Greene and Tim Bluhm)

# Spider John
# ? (last goodbye?)
# ? (squeek wheel?)

Jackie and Tim sing together in a band called the "Skinny Singers". Tim is a good guitarist, their voices sound good together. The songs have catchy tunes and quirky lyrics. Tim's wife Mickey sang harmony on the third tune.

=====

Electric Set 3: (Phil and Friends)

# Sugar Magnolia >
# Sunshine Daydream
# Unbroken Chain >
# Jam >
# Mountains Of The Moon >
# Jam >
# Terrapin Station >
# I Know You Rider

A couple thousand balloons fell from the ceiling at the beginning of Sugar Magnolia, which rocked. There was also a giant mirror ball above the stage. The Unbroken Chain had a rocking jam part but was fairly slow in the verses, and then the Mountains was beautiful, but darn for an old man those slow songs at 2:30am ar tough. They must have known -- the Terrapin was very interesting, fast and intricate, and the Rider closer was very rowdy.

=====

Encore: (Phil and Friends w/ Mark Karan)

# Donor Rap
# Truckin >
# And We Bid You Good Night

Good Truckin', but I think everyone was tired....

Great show, great time. Phil came out a bit before 9 to ask for patience and not to worry about the delay since a lot of music was on the way. Six and a half hours later the show ended. So much great stuff. I thought it was really well balanced. It sure didn't seem like the show was that long.

>>They must have known -- the Terrapin was very interesting, fast and intricate, and the Rider closer was very rowdy. >>

After Mountains the band moved into a high energy jam that reminded me of the 'elevator jam' (from when Steve Molitz first joined the band). The jam was really going and then they turned a sharp corner into the the back end of Terrapin. Loved it. and the Rider just rocked.

Well they abandoned the album run last night and put on a big show instead. We could tell from the big balloon bags hanging from the ceiling that we were in for a different experience.

It was 9pm when Phil came out and stepped up to the microphone. He told us right up front that they were going to improvise the setlist for the night and that we were in for a barn-burner. "It's going to be a long night," said he. "So settle in and make yourself comfortable."

There were five sets! The three electric sets were broken up by two acoustic performances:

set 1 - electric w/Weir (and Chimenti) along with Molo and Phil and Larry
set 2 - acoustic w/Jackie and Larry
set 3 - electric PLF w/Karan
set 4 - acoustic w/Jackie and Tim Bluhm
set 5 - electric PLF

Once again, Phil and Co were bringing the thunder. This band has really gelled of late and the jamming has gotten intense. No doubt they can pull off that big, chunky, thumping sound, the kind that reminds of a locomotive barreling down the tracks right into your face! Yowza!

The first set was most unusual, starting out lean and spare with just Weir, Lesh and Molo. The Dark Star was among the strangest I've heard, with Weir sticking to a rhythm guitar style and no real lead riffs. This is not to say it wasn't musically interesting or fun, it was both. It was also just plain odd, especially as the second song of the night. Loose Lucy was just as strange and funky. I really enjoyed this segment of the show, although I am glad they only did a handful of songs this way.

Once Larry and Jeff joined in, the sound got big and thunderous pretty quickly. The NFA was the third rendition of that song in this 5 show run, but the first one I'd seen (I saw Wed, Fri and Sun) and it was excellent. Good ol' Grateful freaking Dead!

A lot of folks missed the 2nd set. Lights had been up for only about 10-15 minutes when Larry and Jackie stepped out with acoustic guitars. This was a fun set, and I was especially jazzed to hear "Sing Me Back Home", as well as an excellent "Deep E'lem" and a lovely "Goodnight Irene". Bluegrass during the breaks between the electric sets. Hmm, have I experienced this somewhen before?

Shakedown started with a Phil bomb that shook the rafters and the 3rd set was a pumping, driving, cacophony of phun that slowed down only once, for the instrumental Stella. Wow! Larry sang a wicked "Big River" and "Althea" was simply HUGE. The "Sugaree" to close the set was ripping, with impassioned vox by Jackie. It nearly reached the level achieved by the version played at Deadheads for Obama, and that's saying a lot.

The 4th set (aka the 2nd acoustic set) was short and entertaining, but it was also getting pretty late by this time and the phans were starting to slump a bit. It went by quick.

The 5th set picked up where the 3rd set left off. As the band pounded out a roaring "Sugar Mag", the balloons dropped from the ceiling and we had a moment very reminiscent of many a NYE show. It was impossible to sit still and at 2am the place was rocking and reeling! The whole set was big and bouncy with lots of Phil bombs and powerful guitar work from both Jackie and Larry. Scorched earth!

Now, the Truckin I saw on Friday MAY have been a wee bit better than last night's finale, but not by much. It was 3am by that time and I can't say I was completely there by that point. I think we were all a little bit numb by then. It was, like the entire 5th set however, a thumping, pulsing, rollicking ride all the way to the end. Glorious!

Wonderful show. Fantastic run. I'm sorry I didn't get tickets for all 5 night. I saw nights 1,3, and 5.

The only downer was the crowd around me. I was in LL5 in the first row and the people to my left, my right, and behind me were talking through most of the first and third set. They would have talked through the second set but some of them didn't know music was happening (see above). Hell, the way they were talking they didn't know there was music happening during the first and third set either.

Folks, please. If you want to talk during the show, take it to the bar. Otherwise shut the funk up and listen to Phil "searching for the sound". I'm sure there were a lot of Phans who would have loved to have been there for the music, rather than the "event".

Thanks for allowing me to vent.

FABULOUS show!
Started off a little slow with Phil Bobby and Molo --nice and mellow, slow but still gelling very much together -- Just not the electric thunder that was later to come. Pretty good Come Together, very much Bobby's set in terms of the songs being played in his dark jazzy industrial esque style. Dark Star was nice with some good moments -- Not to dark but strange, altho they lost it I think for a minute there when Molo switched to some electronic sounds (couldn't see quite what..)
West LA Fadeaway, very much a Bobby tune even with the Dead but even more so in his style now -- Uniquer version than Ive ever heard (altho I havent heard too many recorded and first time live)
Loose lucy (before West LA) , same deal, much Bobby
I was glad when Jeff and Larry came out during West LA Fadeaway so we could turn the heat up a little bit..still a lot of Bobby as Jeff doing his keys some more and that weird oozing jazz mind melt sound..
Not Fade Away -- Well Bobby said Love not fade away -- Looks like as time goes on we'll be in it for more and forever

Acoustic mini set, nice sit down deal to mellow out -- they gelling all the same but still lower energy, all felt like first set stuff -- Musically up to par but more energy to come (we just got to remember how the structure is set up .. and as we find out , after all these years they know what theyre doing and it still works)

That's it for now off to dinner.. The other 3 sets when I get back..

I asked someone to stop singing on Friday and, for once, he was nice and stopped.

I managed to get a poster last night, but had to miss We Bid You Goodnight. They wouldn't hand out posters until Truckin' was almost done, so there was a huge crowd of couple hundred people backed up from the door into the hallway, waiting for poster delivery.

I enjoyed the last show, but there were definitely some slow moments. Was very glad that I had a seat for most of the night, and think I may have gotten too old for three nights in a row, with the third ending after 3:00. Jackie was out of his mind all night.

Definitely the ugliest sidewalk scene outside the Warfield, ever, during the weekend shows. May be time to find somewhere a little more copacetic for these little rendez-vouss.

BTW, I actually got EGGED by a drive-by vehicle out front in the smoking area last night (just on my shoes as far as I can tell, but they were close to nailing someone full-on). makes you think "what if they were throwing bullets instead of eggs?...don't stand near the curb."

I was amazed at how great the PA sounded up in the balcony tonight. I spent the first four shows on the floor and was so ready to have a seat.

How many Dead shows have we all been to where you can't here bob's guitar at all? Well not tonight, he was way up in the mix. They were really making sure the sound was perfect, constantly giving signals to turn up Bob's guitar and mike. Bob's amp was prominent in the center of the stage and I got the feeling that he was going to make damn sure he was heard. When the other guitars joined in they kept bringing him up to make sure he didn't get drowned out.

What a treat to be able to hear just Bob and no lead guitar. One could argue that Phil was playing lead. Nobody plays rythm guitar like Bobby and Dark Star was a beautiful show case of his work. Can't wait to listen to the soundboard.

There was a funny moment when Bob fumbled one of the verses to Loose Lucy. He looked down at the flat panel monitor that had the lyrics on it and was pointing his finger at it while trying to find his place. When he found it he nodded as if to say "Ahhh, I've got it now" and everyone had a good laugh. Classic.

Big thanks to Phil and the boys for an incredible week of music.

My wife and I flew in from Portland and saw Friday and Saturday only (first Warfield shows). GREAT time!

Quick thoughts: Friday, Attics was the highlight. You could have heard a pin drop in the place. But Friday was also record breaking heat and we were in the top of the balcony. I didn't stop sweating all night.

Saturday was raging from about song 2 of second set on. Check out the Franklins and Fire! Epic!

Sorry I missed Sunday.

I missed seeing Bobby on Bobby tunes at times but Jackie rules.

Unforgettable weekend. SanFran is super cool, yet pricy. The scene outside the Warfield is one of the sketchiest places I've ever seen a show.

One thing that warrants discussion: I believe the use of Cell phones should be strongly discouraged in the venue when the music is going on. All weekend there were very visible people surfing the web on their i-phones or sending lengthy text messages or taking shitty photos or, the worst, holding the phone up so someone can "hear" the show. How distracting! Put your phones away or go in the hallway! Be "present!" We all know the i-phone is cool, but enough alredy!

Prediction: Obama will pick Phil to be his V.P!

Thanks to the Warfield staff too. Most of you folks did an amazing job, as always.

Any chance the new venue is the refurbished Oakland Fox on Telegraph and 17th?

Hope wherever the new hall is that the wonderful Warfield vibe lives on!

I had really good time at the show. Witnessing the interplay between Bob and Phil again is beyond words to me. I am privileged to have been there to see it.

Talked to an an Warf. employee who lives in Oakland about that..Asked if he was going to get a job there now and he replied that it's not a viable option for someone who needs the job (cash), apparently they only use volunteer ushers.

review part 2

Was up in redlight district (the highest section of the balcony) but I gotta say it was great -- went behind the last row of seats to boogie down -- Not as much room as needed for full blown spinnin, but more than just between the seats anyways..
Sound was CRISP and clear the whole show . Really audible no matter where

I was out in the lobby eatin a burrito when the notes to Shakedown Street started the third set (I thought it was Help on the Way for a minute, but no, Shakedown) From then on the energy just continued to pick up and everybody kept on gelling throughout. The 3rd set was more like a traditional first set in terms of songs and energy -- picking up as it went along and every tune perfected (I really cant remember much that I didnt like) The highlight was definitely the Sugaree to end the set -- High energy and Jackie Tearing it up!

Another acoustic set -- Short. Nice vocals the two and then the three. Nice Jackie can get his own thing in there too. and good for a break from dancing (even if it wasnt full blasted melt down fire yet, still late and lots more to come, good to sit down for a minute and relax)

The Sugar Magnolia was Good I think that's some of the hardest dancing we did all night and of course the balloons were fun (altho i missed the initial drop). UBC a treat with Massive jams after verses but nice and sweet for the verse (even if the only line I caught was the ever important "searching for the sound" and something mumbled about a preacher..). I think Mountains had neat variety of mellow and high energy too (maybe not?), but people were getting tired by this time, falling asleep, and I think Phil sensed that so he brought out what somebody later called Terrapin Station on Coke Great tune Lots of dancing
This band is electric , juiced up and GOING . Lack of lead was not evident IMO , as there were many moments of brilliant explosions on all sides with a clear lightning bold lead running right through the middle of it all

Truckin was a little tired, gelling but tired (on everyone's part) A lot of people had left by then or fallen (partially or fully) asleep. Some people had woken up by then tho and started to dance once again. Goodnight was short but sweet, altho the verses might have been nice to really sing us off it was good and late and time to go home, maybe get to bed before too much sunrise peaking up on the San Francisco streets..
Too bad they ran out of posters but i got a picture of me with the skeletons (and one with my mom who graced us with her presence One of the oldest women in the audience just now gettin on the bus!)
If you missed it, you sure missed something great and we'll all just pray for the SBDs so we can hear crisp lighting striking once again and you know our love will not fade away .. Heard somebody say it during UBC and you know its true .. Welcome to the Church (You just been baptized!)

Glad I finally made it to the last Warfield show of Phil and Friends. Unbelievable feeling of carmaraderie in the theater tonight. It was if we were all witnessing something special that will never be seen again, and actually that was what was happening. Sat next to PharmacyDave who bought me drinking water and a cup of coffee when I hit the wall of sleep at about 1215am last night, THANKS DAVE,YOU SAVED ME! I heeded Phil's warning, and it was cool how they started slowly, kind of like making a stew, slowly putting in the ingredients piece by piece. It was cool to see just the three of them, it gave me more appreciation for what Bob plays on his guitar. I spent a lot of money and put a lot of energy into this show, so when they started Come Together and some gals were talking really loud, I asked them to be quiet. A guy next to me who was dosed told me this is a party, don't try to be silencing people, it is just a Beatles song. Young man, without The Beatles there would have never been any Grateful Dead. Anyway he said he was sorry later, and I told him apology accepted. Eventually it was cool to hear Larry and Jeff chime in, then things started to change. I dug the set they played, a nice spacy introduction to a long evening for sure. Started to feel faint, so I went and got big ass veggie burrito, thanks Hannah, you saved my life! She was one of many cool Warfield employees at the run. Great acoustic set by Larry and Jackie, Deep Elem and Warfield Waltz very cool, as was Sing Me Back Home and I totally loved Goodnite Irene, couldn't get it out of my head for awhile. Shakedown is where things really started to kick into high gear. Larry great on Big River vocals, and Ball and Chain before that was really upbeat, first Jackie song the whole run I believe. Half-Step and Althea were just killer, and I dug the Stella Blue, and was glad it stayed instrumental, although PharmacyDave pointed out those are some of his favorite Grateful Dead lyrics, and I have to agree, it just seemed a little bit of variety to have it instrumental, which I dug. Jackie totally tore up Sugaree, could really feel the Garcia presence in the theater. The guitarists really shredded trhis one, can't wait to get recordings of all five nights, just to listen to over and over again for the resty of my life, THANK YOU PHIL LESH FOR THIS FRESH GD MUSIC YOU AND YOUR BAND ARE MAKING! Enjoyed the Skinny Singers set, but I think for me the best song of the five nights for me was Unbroken Chain! I was just in this right state of mind, and I think it was better they do a song or two off of Wake and Mars instaed of the whole album. Molitz was making killer synthesizer sounds in Unbroken Chain, and Larry just kept soloing forever, thanks you guys! The ballons and mirrored ball were also very cool during Sugar Mag! I dig Mountains of the Moon, but sure enough some assholes had to talk right behind me during that song, and by this time I was too tired to ask them to be quiet. Was hoping to get some part of Terrapin, and the lights in the balcony for this song were really psychedelic! Got into the third row for I know You Rider and took some pictures after being in row E all night, where again like Friday had about 6 seats to dance in. That was cool after being smashed in on the first two nights, with every seat around me filled. I will say the seats in the balcony suck for trying to sit in, I heard they were going to redo the balcony, and I hope they put NEW AND BIGGER SEATS IN! In order to get a poster, I had to line up downstairs during Truckin', and it was cool as all of us down there all sang along to the words while hanging out near front door. The night before they ran out three people in front of me, and on Tuesday I blew it and forgot, so I went 3 for 5 in the poster department, and also bought the one they were selling. Thanks again to Phil Lesh and his band and the promoters and evryone at The Warfield for five nights of unforgettable music, I love you all from the bottom of my heart! Thanks again to PharmacyDave for being such a coll neighbor, and to all the other people I met and talked to all the other nights, "strangers stopping strangers, just to shake there hand" , and thanks to the one and only Robert Hunter for all your wondeful lyrics about far off people in faraway places, love BruceEdwardWeber(eddieboy)!

I was really stoked on the Phil/Bob/Molo/ with a little Larry, Larry/Jackie, and Skinny Singers sets. The Phil and Friends stuff sounded mostly but not entirely flat - from the balcony that is. Farewell Warfield Theater - the good times were really good.

hey y'all!

I thought the whole dang run was just out of this world. I'm really glad I was able to go.
Unfortunately, I got shut out on posters for Tue and Sun; if anyone has an extra first/last, I'd be interested in swapping with you from any of the middle three nights.

Thanks!!!

>>I am sitting here wanting to write a review of how unbelievably incredible last night and this whole run was, but I can't stop thinking about how many fucking idiots are out at shows yapping all night.

People need to respect the music and those around them, if not, please stay home.

>>One thing that warrants discussion: I believe the use of Cell phones should be strongly discouraged in the venue when the music is going on. All weekend there were very visible people surfing the web on their i-phones or sending lengthy text messages or taking shitty photos or, the worst, holding the phone up so someone can "hear" the show. How distracting! Put your phones away or go in the hallway! Be "present!" We all know the i-phone is cool, but enough alredy!

Brian and Rob - how fuckin' right you both are!

First off - great final night. Got to see all the weekend shows, and this one was a blast. I don't think it was P&F's greatest performance, by any means, or the greatest setlist, but it was all solid, high-energy, and for-the-most-part, extremely enjoyable. It was also nice that they filled some of the many breaks with acoustic music, rather than have us all just twiddle our thumbs. I particularly grooved on the Phil/Bobby/Molo jam, having had to give up Tuesday's show for other pressing matters. Of course, I was just comin' on to something around that point, so that did somewhat influence my judgement, but I really did think that was cool. Honestly, as much as Bob has his flaws (and certainly his detractors), I think his rhythm textures are largely absent from the current lineup, so I thought his presence and playing (even without a lead guitarist) was really enjoyable. How cool to see just Phil, Bob and Molo jam on Dark Star!!

OK, now to the negative -- I could barely hear the Dark Star, because there were so many "chattering idiots" around me (I was too close to the bar, clearly) who, for some reason, thought that Dark Star is some cheap toss-off like Corinna or something. C'MON, FOLKS!!! You're seeing a Phil/Bob/Molo jam on the most sacred of Dead songs, and you can't shut the F up and listen??!! Hell, the minute the band hits West L.A. Fadeaway (or some other song later on that requires less intense, meditative music LISTENING) all these people pipe down. During some of the quieter moments during the threesome jam, and other stuff (like the acoustic sections), the din from the crowd was truly insulting -- I felt like I was at a Kimock or Rads show at GAMH!! I'm kind of surprised Phil and the band didn't just ask the audience to "CHUT UP!!!"

Oh, and those annoying electronic toys everyone now has! Gee, can you please check on the songlist of Skullfuck while the band is playing?! Yes, and Billy Joe and Bobby Sue need to know exactly what's being played now -- and, wait...they should hear it too!!! It's bad enough seeing these new digital cameras (and phones) with these huge LCDs going up all over the place, but, being a guy who brings a camera, I have no right to bitch about that. However, you won't see my LCD in your face all show (in fact, you'll be hard-pressed to notice it at all). Shit! Just get dosed and you'll be sure to leave those things in your bag or pocket.

OK, gripe over.

All in all, a highly enjoyable end to what was if not an epic, than certainly an extremely interesting run - shit, it was epic, what am I saying?!! I just wish I'd been able to do the whole 5 shows (probably won't ever get to see a "Cream Puff War") and soak in the whole thing just a bit longer (without rushing out in hopes of getting a poster). I hope the Warfield stays somewhat the same, and it's not really the last time we see P&Family there.

It was a night to remember Jerry! Sundays setlists (pre phil and friends) was all Jerry songs. Well from a guy who has seen phil over half his life and across the country as well...I say Fare Thee Well to the "Kind" Family setting of the Warfield. You can say goodbye to gentle searches (looking for weapons) and polite askings of not to dance in the stairways. Say hello to the corporate Naziness of House of Blues.
As far as cell phones and people talking during the music....As Jerry called them..."Mellons" will always be Melons!
As far as texts.....well since I have been a zoner for years and look online while the show is going on for updates (sent by texts) I would be an idiot to get mad about lcd screens.
So, as far as the shows went...well I would say it was'nt the most articulated music I have seeen phil play...sloppy even at times. BUT the spirit of being at a Dead Family THROWDOWN was ALWAYS present! From comadery in the crowd to the warmth of security! I did not miss a BLINK of music.....and was charged up enough to roll home on my 15 hour drive straight from the show! I will always have deep affection for this week...and feel very blessed to have been part of the select few!

P.s How come no one is bitching about all the idiot heads who support scalpers?? I heard of several people paying hunderds of dollars! If you wanna go that bad...stay in tune with your scene and order tix from Phil!

Highlites were PHIL SINGING Black Peter and of course the Instrumental Stella Blue brought MANY tears.

Hey Alex,
I whole heartedly agree with your comments re: atmosphere at recent shows. All I have to say is we are old school:

The passing of the torch (lighter) happened years ago pre-encore. The lighting of butane lighters for a candle-like effect - a la the Before the Flood/Dylan Band LP cover - was replaced with holding an illuminated cell phone for a cold blue effect. Blecch!

Do these people actually watch/listen the crap they commit to bytes on their phones. Have you seen that garbage on YouTube?

(BTW: You would have really been annoyed by the silent maroon that frequents NYC-Beacon Phil shows and has a red digital marquee that scrolls around his head with the title of the song being played. What an eyesore!!) Best part is when there is a typo. There was one show where "Voila Lee Blues" scrolled around his head for about 20m.

- Dark Star: I was trying to pull people back from the hallways when the boys broke into Dark Star with Branford at Nassau in 90. You are either into it or not - no middle ground.

- For every audience member that abuses technology, I have to say that - as an East Coast father of a newborn up in the early hours - I was checking this site frequently with anticipation for updates from within the show. I have also enjoyed listening to the audience tapes that I got within a day OR 2 of the show. (Thanks Rosemary!)

It's time to accept the culture change and, "take what you need and leave the rest..."

Thank you Phil, Friends, and guests for taking this project on. It took major cajones!

Hey

have I missed something??

Blair Jackson's stuff on dead.net says:

(Well have to hear the soundboard version, I suppose, to get the full effect.)

does this mean that Phil will release this series of shows?? Let's hope so - it was historic. Maybe we should start a petition - the gov't allows us to do that here in the UK - not necessarily with the right results!

Just wanted to toot my own horn here a bit:

THIS was my most recent sticker design (in collaboration with ESP) for the recent run of shows where they 'tore the jukebox down' (I would post the image directly, but I cant fugure out how.

(all of them are spoken for, but If I get, like, 25 inquires I will consider having a second run done)

"Shit! Just get dosed and you'll be sure to leave those things in your bag or pocket."

Classic!

As a long timer (over 35 years) I really have to agree with the comments about modern technology intruding on the scene. In many ways it's pulling us apart into our individual spaces much more then it's bringing us together. But there will always be talkers. Red Rocks '87, right as the jam to Bird Song starts up these party girls plop themselves down behind our 10th row seats and start yapping away. One icy stare and a comment about how I'd waited nine years to get back here and this was one of my favorite songs did the trick but should that have even been necessary?

heads up, on those stickers, they are not inexpensive: they are the same process you see on a truck sign.-they are also hand cut by my collaborators at ESP-their retail price is $7.oo (worth it, but that is why I want to make sure I have at least 25 solid inquiries before I have a second run done.

my paypal is vendingmachine@hotmail.com

so far it looks like about 10 people have asked after them, so...I *think* we can pull this off.

>>How the hell do you think the zone gets real time updates?

And the zone needs these, why? And one fewer participant in the group mind is worth this, how?

Actually, though, I'd be happy enought just for the chattering idiots to shut the fuck up (which they did, at least, in my area of the balcony, on Friday, the one show I was able to make this go 'round). Really steams me, without surprising me alas, to hear Alex tell of dumbfucks who chatter all the way through a Bob-Phil-Molo Dark Star but suddenly pay attention to West LA, a song from you know what album that had you know what other song, which marked the beginning of a true decline in the quality of dead show audiences.

So at least texters, surfers, and shutterbugs don't intrude on the sound. Still, I'd argue that the whole enterprise of any of the above, including rustling around in your bag o' camera equipment, and fussing with same, even if you do not have an lcd in people's faces, means you are one less contributor to the group concentration of on and for the present moment. And that's a damn shame, in and of itself.

YES it's a shame that people cannot shut up and listen to the music, but then again I am not above telling someone to be quiet so I can hear the show rather than their love life disasters....I heard others tell people to be quiet at the past Warfield run near the tapers section of whic I was a part.....take care and SMILE SMILE SMILE as we will continue to do as long as the music played....We are all just playing in the band one way or another this darkness has to give....

Basic message: Be aware that the light polution from your contraption is annoying as fuck to some people. Take it for what it's worth.

We all love the live setlist updates...but please go to the bathroom or hallway to do it. Spread the word.

I'm sure we can all agree that the group mind is an essential part of any live music experience. Think of the best shows you've been to when "it" happens...You don't remember anybody in your vacinity being on a phone, do you?

If "it" is trying to happen and you look over and see your nieghbor typing a text..."it" simply doesent happen...good music and fun times happen...but not "it."

Seen?

This is a crazy concept, that we have to address in 2008. First it was just pagers, then a couple cell phones now MASS MEDIA INVASION during the show. I could feel the magic coming on for me a couple times and had to wave off a very good friend who "gets it", who was trying to show me some picture but forget the picture, I want the moment. It's just like "Not now, PLEASE!!!!!". But on the flip side, I really enjoy every picture that I see from the show.

I will spread the word!!!!

I think people can't handle it when they are not the center of attention, and they can't figure out why everyone is paying so much attention to the stage and the music and musicians when they should be paying attention to them, so they talk so everyone will pay attention to them, which is a shame...

I think you are right on the money Bruce. I have often thought that a person who scrams during the quiet part of a musical performance must generally not feel heard, so they take the opportunity when a large group of people is forced to notice them. It is sad really.

I have increasingly become less shy about asking people to be quiet. I encourage others to do this too.

People are becoming increasingly oblivious to the world around them. The more technically advanced we become the more isolated we become.

"Talkers" at shows almost always are absolutely SHOCKED that they are disturbing anyone around them because they are totally unaware that anyone is around them, even when mashed in with thousands of others.

All this bashing on talkers, and I can bash as hard as anyone on this topic, must be kept in perspective though; any one of us can be guilty of this at one time or another. So often it's friends who haven't seen each other for a long time, drinking and partying together, and they get caught up in the moment.

The ones I can't forgive are the ones who don't get the message or apologize and instead say, "Its a rock show dude, lighten up!" Those types are just self-centered assholes.

Also unforgivable are people who are working the event; ushers, security or sound guys (YELLING with buddies and crushing an empty water bottle right next to me at the Wednesday show!). They should be the LAST people to be disturbing the paying customers.

As for cell phones and whatnot, is that really such a big deal? I can live with that; it can be a bit annoying but ultimately, of all things to get worked up about at a show that is pretty low on my list.

Would love to get a pair of those stickers.


Talkers who yak incessantly even after you've pointed it out suck, especially when they think they can take your spot (that you've had the entire run) when you go to buy a beer or take a leak. I looked them in the eye and said, "I'm going to the bathroom and will be right back, remember this face." I was told "It's a GA show, you can't keep that spot".....



They didn't get my spot...:-O

Sorry Sinatra.
Must have been that chick on Sunday night.
I was focused on the music.
I backed off and let her wedge in.
My mistake.

No worries Bill. We had such a good group of uber-innie zoners, she didn't stand a chance

And I think she and her friends were probably Phish heads, too young to have seen Garcia

We should have given her the Sinatra/Googly/BigBill sandwich.

Kiffin and Al expect more from you Bill.

Actually, she wedged in, then I backed off.
Wouldn't have been too gentlemanly to elbow her out of the way, but I thought about it.
She wasn't cool at all.

The sandwich would have worked.

You can count me in for a few of those stickers as well:-)

But, I stopped using PayPal, so I would be happy to send you a check for 4 of them - 1 to represent each 100 of the 400 shows I had seen @ The Warfield since 1989!

Cheers and thanks for creating something special !

the 1 event poster that was sold.
1 poster each nite given a free total of 5 , 1 for each nite.
then they did a specail poster on the last nite just given to bgp employes around 5am that nite it list all the bands that played there and says nov 2 1972 thru may 18 2008 warfield theater and on the bottom it say been here so long we got to calling it home and a picture of the warfied.
