It was a stupendous 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 Road was arrange for enterprise as standard for the move of parka adorned and visibly shivering deadheads. East coasters who made the trek have been undoubtedly not complaining concerning the sub 60 diploma climate however even the native canine within the lot have been carrying ugly vacation sweaters for the submit Christmas occasion.

I all the time stated within the Grateful Lifeless touring days of my youth (to whoever would hear) that you would 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 powerful because it was extra crowded there than the 405 Freeway at rush hour. Hope you guys made some cash!

The venue was offered out and crammed to the rafters with shade. The vitality ranges have 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 Girls (one other Mayer fave) hit enjoyable and exhausting adopted by a really enthusiastic Do not Ease Me In to shut the set.

The second set began with a gradual paced however melodic Enjoying within the Band. It had some good improvised jams all through but when it bought any slower they must change the identify of the tune. A becoming Terrapin Station adopted and I’ll exit on a limb by saying it’d’ve been the most effective model I’ve heard of this tune with this specific post-Jerry incarnation. Astrologically talking and simply exterior the venue, the spiral mild of Venus was truly rising first and shining finest 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 gentle jam out of area introduced us Wharf Rat and the set closed with a crimson, white and blue lit US Blues. The encore was a superbly performed Ripple with John Mayer including some new acoustic riffs to the tune. All in all… a reasonably good present. Not too many dangers have been taken by the band however what was performed was nicely delivered and nicely obtained.

The sound was actually good in The Discussion board contemplating it being an area 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 regarded like a tie died Dying Star.

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

Invoice Walton and his unimaginable wing span is difficult to overlook
