I watched the Bob Weir doc on Netflix the other night and by god did I love it. Granted, a lot of it was my pleasure centers getting triggered by nostalgia, and they totally ignored/glossed over how close Bob came to getting kicked out of the band in the early years. But it was even more entertaining than that doc about 18 year olds making amateur porn in Miami.

I thought Friday and Sunday were best, but too close to really rank. Great weekend and great city. It was like the whole place was one big GD festival. You couldn't walk a block without seeing a GD shirt.

It was funny listening to the O's commentators on the radio and tv talking about the dead shows.

Glad to hear it was fun. Wish I could have been there.

Need to watch the Bob Weir doc. He was hot way back in the day.

I'm really happy these shows turned out awesome as I was a bit concerned after the Santa Clara shows last week.  This is one of the few times in many years that I'm super disappointed about missing a run of shows.

as expected, those Dead and Company tickets are basically free on stubhub right now. I may be tricked into attending.

SIDEHUTCH, TAKE NOT OF A PERFECT EXAMPLE OF SCALPERS BEING SCREWED HERE.

what are you talking about?  the only, "close to free" tickets are the ones where you have to sit hanging from the ceiling.  any other seat is 500 to 5000 dollars.

Show is a week away and you can already get tix for $12 each. They're not good seats, but that's still pretty telling. Can't imagine prices will not go up.

That said, I'm pretty impressed how close Mayer's guitar sound is to Jerry's. This does not sound bad at all.

Loved that J Mascis-lookin dude on keyboards.

I think I may end up going to this.

yup... what I said above. Will be hard to pass up for under $20! If I'm in town, I'm there!

I'm not sure what I meant by saying "Can't imagine prices will not go up." I don't think I meant to include "not" but it's hard to say and I'm already bored with the whole notion.

Anyway, nostalgia and the chance to hear some sick jamz might be enough to get me there. I figure just showing up and getting a sidewalk ticket will be the way to go. Might even get a miracle.
