Last Saturday I purchased 2 tix to summercamp music & camping festival (may 22-25) for my boyfriend and myself. One of the scheduled acts is Dark Star Orchestra, a Grateful Dead tribute band that is so deep in the Dead they will play an entire show as a setlist from a particular show (i.e., New Year’s Eve 12/31/2008 Baltimore show was a re-creation of the 12/31/78 Winterland Arena set) *and* use the instruments and gear for the particular era they are re-creating. While taping my Dead-inspired twin hoops Sunshine & Daydream, I chilled out to the sounds of Dark Star Orchestra and caught this gem of a tune.

Here is the Grateful Dead, 10/9/89, @ Hampton Coliseum performing “Jack A Roe.”
