Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 184.108.40.206
Last night they played in Washington D.C. – a 3+ hour show including an intermission set played by Robert Hunter.
I guess it’s no surprise that if I’ll travel from Austin to London to meet you guys in a pub that I have no problem flying to D.C. for one night for a concert!
I grew up in D.C., and I spent my early adult years as a fan of the Dead; friends and I saw them play probably two dozen times. So when we heard about the new tour we decided to meet in D.C. for a show. Tickets went on sale the day of PubConference – so while I was deep in some of the best SEO conversations I’ve ever had, my friend was in line for Other Ones tickets.
I flew up to D.C. yesterday, saw the show, closed out our favorite old bar after the show, and flew back today. Fabulous!
Now it's time to go catch up on my sleep. :)
Old rock and roll guys never die, they just go and work for Google.
Hmm.. i wonder who GoogleGuy really is....
A majority of the songs they played were ones that would have Bob on the vocals ... they didn't avoid all of Jerry's songs, but they definitely favored Bob's.
It was amusing to look at the crowd; nearly 10 years older and an average of 10 lbs heavier. I guess everyone got jobs and started eating. ;)
Naw... all the younger Deadhead set hopped off the bus in the Pacific Northwest to sell recreational substances, panhandle, and boycott the hairbrush industry. ;) (Nice thing about Alaska: too cold to attract many neo-hippie panhandlers.)
