Dead & Company's Fabulous Fall Tour rolls through Washington, D.C. last night. Next stop Hartford, Connecticut ;) Review, photos , Setlist Kevin

   I   understand that I am gay about these six savants making music together. It's such an odd mix of characters proving their is no formula to follow when assembling a band. Just three years ago, I recall writing an editorial trying to calm the outrage about John (I miss Katy Perry) Mayer playing in the band. The community was acting like they picked a guy out of a GD cover band to play lead. I never dreamed it would be such a sonic epidemic, but the Rhythm Devil's were involved. Billy and Mickey would never partake in anything beneath them. After, “Fare the Phil” the community demanded more live Dead and the final three and all good company are exceeding expectations.
  The show opened with “ Stranger” so the faithful knew it would be a long and crazy night. The following “Bertha” was electrifying, as Mayer showed “ D.C.  he is a man on a mission this fall. My favorite Bobby tune “ Black Throated Wind,’ was poignant, as his vocals sound better than ten years ago. The first half had the crowd’s attention, as they  danced all evening to Jehovah’s favorite choir. An adventurous “Cassidy” included the best jam of the set.  Oteil stayed in the pocket steering the bus to unchartered territory. This band as a dozen tunes they just murder and “ Deal” is definitely is one of those jam vehicles and tonight's version was extra tasty. John chops closed the set as the fans when berserk as the boys left the stage.
 The second stanza joins the tours collection of pristine  second sets.. The opening “Help>Slip>Franklins’ Tower” displayed the best jams of the night as Mayor caught fire and ignited the set early and often.  Bobby pulled out his timeless love song “Looks like Rain”, pleasing the post Jerry fans the most. I may be a jadded vet, but at least he did not sing his sappy love song in the slot of Jerry's tune following Space.. After Bobby's world turned grey,, it was time for  Tuesday’s token “Terrapin Station". They seemingly play this epic song every  Tuesday they perform.. The show ended with the band collectively performing a stunningly beautiful “Days Between’. The crowd was dialed in, as Bobby sang  the profound  lyrics with determination. Its a fascinating tune and highlights how great Jerry and Hunter's song writing was in the final stage of Jerry's life. The arena erupted hearing the opening chord's to Throwing Stones”. It ended the splendid evening with everyone shaking their bones as Bobby vigorously sang  his political rocker with more energy of a man half his age. They ended the night with a rough rendition of "Touch of Grey", Damn the humanity! This band definitely did not forsake our Nation's Capital. Next stop Hartford!

Watch the epic return of Corrina by Dead & Company plus commentary.

Let's relive one of the many mystical Sonic passages from last night when Bobby introduced "Corrina" into the Dead & Company universe. It's a fascinating song mainly because it was lame when the Grateful Dead performanced it. They did not have time to find the best arraignment and it came across as cheesy Bobby. Well many world's have come since Bobby was a little lame. In 98 The Other Ones ( oddly enough they are the only post Jerry band better than Dead and Company) performed the new Cajun arraignment of the tube and it's been a absolute barnburner since. Bobby set the crowd up for the back door with a stunning Loser and then Bam!! Ready or Not CORRINA. How did Mayer do? He ain't Kimock but he did fine on the complicated scales. Let's Watch

A Sunday miracle took place at the sold out Garden as Dead & Company performed a career defining show.


Holy Fuck! Do you believe in destiny? The Grateful Dead’s long strange trip began a lifetime ago and things are only getting stranger, so let's get on with the show.
   Tonight's Dead and Company's performance was nothing short of legendary. They are easily the best band playing today and last night their performance will live on in infamy. In twenty years it will be held in  similar regards to The Grateful Dead’s historic runs at the Fillmore in 69 or Cornell 1977.
 They opened with the Sunday staple “Samson and Delilah,” to be earnest; I prefer they start Sundays with the biblical tale. The reason being it's one of my least favorite tunes and I like it off the table. However, last night's avoided the songs usual predictable fate. Over the next couple of hours the band we're in a special place, listening to each other carefully and improvising in unison. They nailed every note while delivering the finest setlist I could imagine. John’s portrayal of “Loser” was immaculate, his tone captured the hopeless desperation of Hunter's story perfectly while his guitar licks carried me back in time. Bobby then stimulated the vibe by finally unveiling the forgotten gem “Corrina.” He resurrected the rousing tune in a peerless spot allowing the energy to reach utopian levels. The remainder of the concert followed this rewarding path. The band was firing on every conceivable cylinder all night as the set of destiny played itself out. The second stanza used Oteil’s brilliantly performed “ Comes A Time” in a similar manner. It was sandwich between a dynamic “ China>Rider’ and a seventies structured *Playing in the band”. The jams reached epic proportions all evening as the music played the band. The finest concert in years can only finish with a life affirming “ Morning Dew” and of course
It did. Then the night was certified magic with a “Brokedown Palace” encore. Bobby  ended the emotional rollercoaster with a Playing reprise. Bravo boys! I am certain the fanbase will have their own ideas. I will let the words be yours fans, I am done with mine.

Stephen Inglis’ Cut The Dead Some Slack” is a treasure of a tribute album.

  Grateful Dead zealots are a fevered fanbase and we are convinced the world would understand the genius if  only the music was digested...
