Ready to go AGAIN. I'm very appreciative of living here near SF which enables me to partake in these wonderful rehearsal shows, with all you fine folks.
Can't wait for tonight!!
I'm supposed to be working, but all I seem to be able to do right now is read the zoners reflections of the weekend, and get psyched for tonight.
Back to the living room!
Likewise on these posts, see you phreaks down there.
I'm also psyched to attend tonight's rehearsal show! I tried all of yesterday afternoon to score a ticket, but they didn't release any until last night. I managed to get a ticket for each of the three rehearsals this week before they sold out. I guess my patience and persistence paid off! See ya'll tonight!
Just a song of Gomorrah, I wonder what they did there.
looking to see some new Jerry nuggs in prep for summer tour. Gomorrah would be sweet.
Heading to tomorrow and Thursday shows. These things are a blast, really getting spoiled. I guess the band must really like doing them, because there certainly isn't any money in it. I guess they like them for the same reason that we like them, its sooooo easy. You have a regular day, get a nice dinner, rock out for a couple of hours, and then go home and get a nice nights sleep. The constant monitoring of the website for tickets is a bit annoying, but it beats the old days of sleeping out in front of the Oakland Coliseum for decent seats!!! Looking forward to hearing tonights setlist....
So sorry to be missing these shows - please keep the updates coming :-)
Into cold, rain and snow...jk ripped thje leads on the bucket
Into masons children (cold rain was old style - great jk vocals at end, russo kickin it too)
Into just a little light (phil loving his new modulus bass on masons) got to love the song mix from 60s back to late 80s. Nice wah on little light
Keep it cummin'
Correction; Ashes to glass (not twodj)
Ramble on rose (ashes and glass was good. Weir sang it well)
After enjoying a wonderful weekend at Furthur Festival, I'm home having a great evening with my family. Thanks for keeping us in the loop Jahk2!
Here comes sunshine (jk)...
Just got a call from Rob for a little listen on Sunshine - thanks Rob!
Into he's gone (bw) hcs was very spacy like 73/74
corrina (he's gone was a highlight, very sweet and soulful. Good crowd singin too)
why the hell is bobby singing he's gone... I don't get it... The first leg of the tour was so good because Jon sang the Jerry songs... I am getting angry here.. speedway and he's gone should NOT be sung by Bob
Last He's Gone I saw was at a rehearsal show in January and Bob and JK were switching off.
Looks like a good set tonight. Mason's is the only song so far that I am bummed to be missing, but it still looks like a lot of fun!
Tennessee Jed (jk)
Clarification...Bob only sang verse one of he's gone..all sang the rest and Jk starred on most of it.
Touch of grey
Donor rap > We bid you goodnight
>>>>>>>>>>>. I am getting angry here.. speedway and he's gone should NOT be sung by Bob
jason- when its your band, you can call the shots on who sings each song
Bob did a great job on Speedway last week. Always keep this in mind when Bob is singing a sacred Jerry song- it could be Phil. 'Nough said!

It was Ashes And Glass, not Two Djinn. They sure do sound a lot alike at times though...
So much fun tonight! Thank you Phil & Bobby oxx
Fun show again. Two Djinn would have been nice(can I say that?) in place of Ashes and Glass
Thanks for the updates, it's nice to know what's going on down there.
Band is in great spirits. They looked a bit tired, but hey - we all are! John was fabulous tonight, real animated in his lyrical phrasing, especially on Ramble On Rose and Tennessee Jed and continuing to display something beyond confidence with his spirit.
Band sounded great, We Bid You Goodnight was sweet. Probably the best part of the evening for me.
Not really my favorite songs being performed but it was a fun evening and a treat to hear Bobby in such good form, kinda wish I'd heard more from Phil, I actually would have prefered him taking the Cold Rain and Snow vocals. We will survive
It wasn't as blazing as the two last week were, but coming off of an epic weekend and then back to the little little room was a shift for them AND us.
Nothing was bad or clunky, it was just a more easy-going fun night of really good music.
It took off for me with the jam out of Here Comes Sunshine. It just floated out there and was truly excellent, and those glorious doors opened once again. Everything after that was right on IMO. Including Corrina (the back half anyway).
Excellent transition into He's Gone, and Russo & JK were both excellent on TJ. The Bid You Goodnight encore was beautiful, perfect and something any of us would love to hear ANY time.
In many ways so like the old days, when each night would be so different; one night big, one night spacey, one night epic, one night groovy. Can't wait to go back tomorrow.
This is the shit if you're a Dead Head, no doubt about it.
Luck is a beautiful thing.
Just in case you want to see what this place is like...
From the very back corner
Another with the entry door visable
And this is the back side, right outside the patio with open doors, with some heads dancing in the streets during Bob's tune (some air was good for me at that point)
If I'm motivated I'll take a few more tomorrow.
I had someone offer me a ticket yesterday at 1pm......glad I was too tired to go. I'm looking for a little more meat and potatoes....doesn't look that bad on paper though....just not necc. my cup of tea
I'll accept a ticket for tonight if someone offers one :-)
Oh how I wish I could get just a little more furthur tonight! Had a beautiful time last night. The condom thing was a joke Russo!
I'll agree with those who described the gig last night as mixed. The volume was too low for the first three tunes, finally getting louder during "Just A Little Light". The audience was clearly more engaged as the volume increased, too. "Mason's Children" can be a rocking number but last night the low volume vox left the tune sadly under-served. IMHO, the highlights were "Ramble On Rose" (big sing-along) and "Here Comes Sunshine". It felt like a first set with fairly straight-up renditions and not a whole lot of jamming. Twelve songs and a donor rap in just under two hours. I have to skip tonight and am hoping they bring the goods on Thursday. For those attending tonight, have a great time!!!
A msg for Litmus - good to meet you on the line last night, dude. You were right about the smoking area - a totally cool little outdoor area surrounded by plants and filled with 'heads firing up with abandon. Very civilized!
it is a rehearsale!!!
I don't see how these small gigs are really any more of a rehearsal than any other show I've been to, except that these gigs are often shorter. Not that I'm complaining. 2 hours of music is fine and I'd be thrilled to do it again if I could.
They're not rehearsals. They rehearse earlier in the afternoon and then play what they rehearsed at the show.
They ARE unique two hour shows in tiny rooms, set up in a different way than we're all used to and the like of which has never been seen from these guys since they were playing that place in Belmont in '65 or whatever.
If you get in drop all expectations, relax and enjoy. It's WAY to easy, inexpensive & hassle-free.
I do agree that the sound was too low at the beginning. The difference between yesterdays first half hour and last Mondays scorching Shakedown/Good Lovin' opener was night & day.
But still GOOD fun!
San Rafael here I come!!!
If someone offered me tonight, I would be so down. Felt like a choosy begger when I said it, but I knew I would be asleep by 8pm last night, and it turns out I was out by 730.
deacon_bruce: great meeting you too. sorry you'll miss tonight, but hopefully i'll see you again tomorrow night. if so, i want to invite you out to the porch for a chat. ;-)
i agree that last night was almost a transition night...sounds like the fest was epic on all fronts and i can only imagine how much that would tire out the furthur folks. still, some great moments, including parts of "he's gone," an always-welcome "here comes sunshine," a surprisingly enjoyable "corrina" (i honestly can't recall a single instance of enjoying that tune when the dead played it), and a heartfelt "bid you goodnite."
have a feeling tonight will be a bit more out there. would LOVE to hear that entire terrapin suite.
hope to meet more zoners tonight. i'll have on my usual brown corduroy jacket and goatee. please say hello if you're so inclined.
thanks for the setlist rob!
Glad to do it, thanks James
