It was an exquisite however chilly weekend in LA for Lifeless and Firm’s SoCal Enjoyable Run cease at The Discussion board in Inglewood. Upon arrival at 4pm on Friday December twenty seventh, the lot was simply beginning to turn out to be lively and Shakedown Avenue was arrange for enterprise as standard for the circulate of parka adorned and visibly shivering deadheads. East coasters who made the trek had been positively not complaining concerning the sub 60 diploma climate however even the native canines within the lot had been sporting ugly vacation sweaters for the submit Christmas occasion.

I all the time mentioned within the Grateful Lifeless touring days of my youth (to whoever would pay attention) that you possibly can discover virtually something within the lot together with a snow shovel if you happen to simply poked round. I actually do not assume that was the case for these reveals regardless of the chilly however then once more I by no means actually requested. By 6:30 Shakedown had turn out to be a chaotic zoo with the livid hissing of nitrous tanks coming from all instructions. Escaping the insanity was robust because it was extra crowded there than the 405 Freeway at rush hour. Hope you guys made some cash!

The venue was bought out and stuffed to the rafters with shade. The power ranges had been excessive in The Discussion board because the present opened with Bob Weir singing a bouncy Truckin’ that led into an equally peppy model of Alabama Getaway. Ramble On Rose was adopted by a John Mayer favourite They Love Every Different which noticed JM throwing down some good leads. Me and My Uncle got here subsequent adopted by a candy rendition of Cassidy. Brown Eyed Ladies (one other Mayer fave) hit enjoyable and onerous adopted by a really enthusiastic Do not Ease Me In to shut the set.

The second set began with a gradual paced however melodic Taking part in within the Band. It had some good improvised jams all through but when it received any slower they must change the identify of the music. A becoming Terrapin Station adopted and I’ll exit on a limb by saying it would’ve been the most effective model I’ve heard of this music with this explicit post-Jerry incarnation. Astrologically talking and simply outdoors the venue, the spiral mild of Venus was really rising first and shining greatest from the northwest nook of the model new crescent moon. No severely – it was…

Oteil then sang a beautiful China Doll and a ripping The Different One by Bob led into drums. A smooth jam out of area introduced us Wharf Rat and the set closed with a pink, white and blue lit US Blues. The encore was a wonderfully performed Ripple with John Mayer including some new acoustic riffs to the music. All in all… a reasonably good present. Not too many dangers had been taken by the band however what was performed was nicely delivered and nicely acquired.

The sound was actually good in The Discussion board contemplating it being an enviornment and the mesmerizing lighting Lifeless & Firm used for these Enjoyable Run gigs was actually spectacular and totally utilized the entire area contained in the venue. At occasions the ceiling seemed like a tie died Loss of life Star.

Bobby’s voice appears to be getting higher with age and for these gals on the market holding observe – his hair remained nicely groomed and digital camera worthy a lot of the night time.

Invoice Walton and his unimaginable wing span is difficult to overlook
