10/6/2011 Dark Star Orchestra @ The Depot
Love the Grateful Dead? Wanna relive the experience? Then go check out Dark Star Orchestra! (http://www.darkstarorchestra.net) It’s hard to just call these guys a tribute band, it’s more of a recreation of a time that consisted of great music and positive vibes. You won’t get the same songs out of these guys every night, they tap into Grateful Dead’s vast catalogs of set lists.
On October 6th, 2011 DSO came to Salt Lake City and rocked The Depot. In a city without a prevalent jam scene it’s great to get bands out here that instill “glimmers of hope” into the mix. Now we’re not completely deprived out here, bands like Umphrey’s McGee, String Cheese Incident, Sound Tribe Sector 9, and Lotus have all made stops, just not as much as we’d all like. And we’re still waiting for that show Disco Biscuits!
Below you can find the set list, packed with tight jam outs and groovy acoustics, DSO knows how to put on a show.
One: Casey Jones ; Me And My Uncle ; China Cat Sunflower > I Know You Rider ; Hard To Handle ; *Deep Elem Blues ; *Friend Of The Devil ; *Don’t Ease Me In ; *Black Peter ; *Uncle John’s Band ; *##Katie Mae
Two: Good Lovin’ > Drums > Not Fade Away > Drums > Good Lovin’ ; Viola Lee Blues ; High Time ; Turn On Your Lovelight
Encore: And We Bid You Good Night
Filler: Alligator > The Eleven > Forever Young
Notes: * acoustic, ## Barraco solo acoustic guitar
Good times, good company, and good music. Easily a 5 out of 5. As Jerry himself said “and we bid you goodnight, goodnight, goodnight.”
