Show of the Week Live at the Orpheum Theater


I just came back from a weekend at the Rite of Spring Festival at Vanderbilt University, in Nashville, Tennessee and instead of reviewing each musical act, I will simply sum up the festival in a single statement. Dubstep hurts my brain. There were some really great acts and some pretty big bummers but overall it was a lot of fun! 

I am going to go right ahead and recommend that you look up Friendly Savages. I really liked them! I mean not as much as I like the dead, but few things in this world could bring me as much joy as the Grateful Dead (other than bread).

This is going to be a quick post, I have been listening to this show for the past hour or so and it is pretty sweet. I enjoyed the eyes of the world , there is nothing that really stands out in my mind from this show, but it is an overall excellent listen. Phil is playing an almost bouncy style that I enjoyed. The paino playing is also very tasteful. Jerry has some really crafty lick that use a lot of string bending, its always cool to hear him experiment.

There is a poll on the right side of the screen, if you have an opinion on the subject, go ahead and vote!

Keep on Rocking
