Thanks for The links Rob.
thank t rob
This band is everything that Furthur is not. Shit eatin grin on Phil's face all night long. Tunes where ramped, everyone on top of their game and sounding great. Scofield was like a pitbull waiting to pounce on his guitar chops. He seemed to be crewing gum all night long. He changed his guitars, but never changed his gum. Must be good gum, or cocoa leaves.
set 2 (by memory)
rollin and tumbling
This band should tour with Furthur , different opener each night according to the coin flip
just got home.....wow
what a smokin' band
suuuuuper sweet show...highlights for me were the wheel and just a little light 1st set closer, Warren ownes this tune! Scarlet>particularly Fire 2nd set opener was killer, huge climax to fIRE.. Magic Bus was epic into other one....Magic Bus was truly just jammed to intense proportions, it was very cool, heard it on 2/14 webcast and was ambivalent, tonight was wayyyy different. Help>slip>frank was phenominal....you could hear the help coming for a good minute, everyone teaed it, Scofield played it inverted, that guy is genius..the sound was fierce in a good way ..like nails on a chalkboard it shredded. Sco and Jackie were indeed chewing gum all night, kinda funny, ...by the end of franklins, Sco was pointing at Warren and Jeff as if to egg them on, he was definitely enjoying and had some sick licks to contribute all night long...Phil was just bombastic, ....he plays incredibly...gave a nice shout out to the CO crowd on his rap. Anything could happen these next 2 nights....doors opened wiiiiide open...more P&F tunes i say...Night of 1000 Stars would be sick...peace out...
Excellent show tonight- everyone was listening well, playing well and following Phil down the rabbit hole. Phil was awe inspiring, takes 3 guitar players these days to keep up with him!
Strong 1st performance by a new band. They will be much better each night, as the run continues
Sco had 7-8 moments of absolute brilliance and Just a Little Light had Warren SOO blazing that Sco just watched.
Scofield laid back for much of the night, except on those moments when he was blowing the roof off. Warren was doing his Warren & Herring thing from the Q days, where he would solo to the 2 & 4 beat or the 1 & 3 beats (leaving the other guitartist to play on the other beats) - Sco did not jump in too often. This band will be on all cylinders when Warren and Sco can figure out how to both shine
JGre held his own and added to the jammin. Chementi did not get many solos, but he was the glue that held things together.
Mr. Lesh. Just tasty all night. THANK YOU!!
Looking forward to the weekend.
Phil indeed is the Man!
Show just smoked in places and for the most part.
Sure was a good start with plentymre to come from the sounds of it.
Just a little light to close and shakedown to open, everything else was just gravy and some good gravy at that.
2nd set with possible exception of an interminable Fire was just Hot and got hotter as we rolled along.
They moved the stage up due to poor ticket sales and totally destroyed any sight lines from our suite, but went to the GA behind Jeff and Warren and had better dancing room anywho...
Sound was toatlly dialed in by the end of 1st set and all 2nd set.
We shall see what tomorrow brings, but I expect plenty more where this came from...
Lots of hugs all around during NFA, obviously they all had a real good time as did we all.
Only other oddity was while Carol and I were dancing to Wharf Rat, a horrendous altercation took place about 5 rows behind us; over as uick as it started, but really harshed my mellow and hated to see that.
blessed to be there. wow

Great setlist. Great warm up show.
Venue was about half full, but nobody seemed to mind. Security lax. Can't wait for tonite and Saturday!!
Also loved it. Thought the seemless Shakedown=>Dire Wolf was one of those how-the-f*ck-do-ya-make-these-two-go-together-but- it-works-perfectly combos (the 2-12-11 Furthur Crazy Fingers=>Dark Hollow was another one of those). Wheel made me cry (tho' with the advent of a daughter a few years back, I have certainly become something of a wuss in that dept). Made the mistake of glancing at the review of the 2-14 gig, so wasn't as caught off guard by the Magic Bus, but totally dug it. (Glad the only other tune I recall from the 2-14 thread is Althea - lots of room for delightful unxpected treats!) The Magic Bus=>Other One combo was a perfect for me b/c on Monday I just got a way belated Chanukah gift of a tie-dye with a hippied out VW micro bus on it, which I was hoping would get here before the shows (tho' while I was awaitin' I didn't know which shirt it would it be, and yes, I'm a kid in the candy store when it comes to Dead music and related accoutrement).
Anyway enough oversharing - the band sounds hot to my ears, and the dancing in the back totally rocked. Also loved how the put the Kid out front. Physically speaking, Greene's appearance and body language reminded of 70's Dylan, esp. from The Last Waltz.
And just think - only 8 hrs. till the next show!!!!!!!!
This band is hot and having a tremendous amount of fun! Big smiles all evening from the band. Phil directing and dropping big bombs all night and sounding excellent. Jackie, Warren and Rob trading off gracefully, giving each other the spotlight. Beautiful transitions, each adding their own sound. 1st set Shakedown & Tennesse was good, then they peeled it back a bit, jazzifying the music, some saw it as slowing it up, but it really worked for me, the 1st set jams were completely groovy. 2nd set was completely different. More power and speed in the playing but at the same time, taking a little off and jazzifying the jams. Warren completed shredded Scarlet, some of the best guitar I have heard him do. Fire was jammy, groovy and the Rollin' & Tumblin was jammy & funkified. The riffs sounded a bit liked a re-worked Minglewood Blues. Cryptical rocked and the Magic Bus jams were at times off the charts. As been mentioned, Scofield blew up Slipknot!. That was crazy powerful and hard. Phil mentioned how much he loves the sound at 1st Bank at it was super good. Nice encore but everyone wanted 1 more. Not sure why they didn't come out for a second. Everyone was primed but they split the stage.
Am primed for the stream tonight and will be back Saturday. Thanks Phil & Friends!
Last nights show had so many highlights for me I would be naming every song and the charm each had last night. So to keep it short my highlight was Warren singing Brent's 'Just A Little Light' -- SOOOOOO Awesome!!
There were so many comments tonight chatting with fellow heads about how tonight just was NOT last night in anyway. These comments and the questions that compare the two are such double edge swords. To some people setlists matter the most - by this i mean people look at setlists and determine whether they wish to check the show out (*of course there are exceptions to this). After setlists comes the buzz on the show which i have seen be both sides of the coin to the most extreme. I happen to not be a setlist person, i'll admit I do often play the 'what song is that they're teasing.." game all the time but it doesn't effect my view on the show. Bringing this back around.. I agree tonights show was not near as good as last nights show, but a setlist and peoples views has nothing to do with it. In all honesty did anyone expect it to be as good? I am a positive person and have tons of Dead shows and post-Jerry projects under my belt. Last night I was BLOWN AWAY! Nothing to do with setlist, or anyone's input on the show, etc. Me being BLOWN AWAY is based on how well everything worked and how dialed they all were. Last night was truley a night they could have played anything.. ANYTHING!!.. THEY COULD DO NO WRONG!! Tonight was a good show and tomorrow will be a heater as well.. but i would be shocked if tomorrows show is the caliber of Thursdays show (remember I am talking about the show as a whole from walking on stage first set to leaving after the encore). Its just something i wanted to say only because i know people who talk during certain songs or tune them out a bit. WORD TO THE WISE.... ALWAYS GIVE A SHOW THE CHANCE TO BE A CONTENDER.... it could open with Victim > Corina > Wave To The Wind -- and still finish out as one of the best ever. **If anyone reading this who was in on the chat last night/tonight even if briefly you know tonight the people would be talking about a transition/song and can't say enough then the next song tuned out stuff to chat with friends about travel, plans, etc. This did not happen at all last night. Sorry for the exhausted long note I just hope somebody was in on that vibe and understands where i am coming from here.
**LAST, the stream we were listening to tonight was horrible.. dropping in/out, horrible feed, hard to explain but just really really really bad tonight, and last night OFF THE HOOK sound. In the end I agree but when you can get to the point you don't care what songs are played i think you hit a new appreciation for the actual music and what the band is doing. Ok enjoy your night everyone tomorrow is going to be another fan-tab-u-lous show!!
!! If anyone out there has a favor to call in I have only seen 'Believe it or Not' once by Jerry in 1988 Alpine -- I have never thought I would want to again b/c I saw Alpine '88 ;p -- but if it were to ever be done again this is the team to do it with warren on vocals (it really would kill
....or "If I had the world to give" ;p
P.S. Warren on 'Just a Little Light'....ummm....well...lets just say it totally soothed my soul - great shows Phil (& friends) NEVER STOP DOING WHAT YOU DO!! simply put F#%kin' AWESOME!! STELLAR!! SICK!! TIGHT!! ROCKIN'!! ON SPOT ALL NIGHT!! PLAYING OFF EACH OTHER!! EACH PERSON MORE THAN PULLED THEIR WEIGHT!! THEIR CHEMISTRY!!...AND THE OTHER 100,000+ THINGS GOING RIGHT just simply DON'T EVER STOP PHIL KEEP THIS MAGIC BUS GOING (: (: (: (: (:
Hey now coloj
here is a vid of that Just a little Light
Hey Westernwind, thanks for that link. I just spent the last six hours watching vids from these shows. Work? What work?
Got to do these shows, and was basically amazed all three nights. The musicians all shared the spotlight without distracting from the songs - they each played to serve the song instead of trying to hog some glory. They all blazed. You might think Jeff would get lost in the mix of three loud guitars (four if you count Phil on lead bass) but Jeff added sparkle and shine to every tune. It was so much fun!
We were beat by the time we got to the first show, but the energy picked us up immediately. Shakedown, Dire Wolf and 10ACJed were surprisingly tight and they all rocked. Pride of Cucamonga was much slower but really nicely done. Guy beside us said he had been waiting 31 years to hear that tune played live, and he was very happy with the way it sounded! I thought the Standing was good, and the Warren version of Just a Little Light was a winner. I always liked that song, and Warren does it better than anyone since Brent.
The second set was all excellent. Scarlet > Fire was tasty! I haven't actually seen those songs played together in awhile, and it felt real good to hear the Fire in the transition from Scarlet. Everything else was golden after that. The whole set was energetic and this band tore it up all night! They charged into the songs with both respect and abandon, with the sweet little treats, musical nuggets, mixed in along the way. Music that makes Phil smile is what I like, and he was beaming all night!
Is this the first Warren "Standing on The Moon"?
I'm relistening to this show for the first time. Holy Beyond MOLY!!!!!!!!!!!! This band sounds soooooo strong and tight like they just practiced and practiced. I want more PHIl!!!!!!!! You have to love it when his voice is on... never mind his strong licks throughout. We are blessed to have such music. I wish that I could type what I say in my head during each song but then it's gone and I'm jamming out to the next one... but super sweet transitions. My daugther (7) was listening to Scarlet Fire and she said "Wow mom this is a really long lead in!", (to Fire).... and I said "Do you like it?".... to which she replied yes. So now she's off at school and I'm hearing the Help Slip Frank and I'm just blown away. Way to break back into your peeps, Phil!!!! I know I sure missed Phil and friends over that hiatus.... and can hardly wait for more.
