    I listened to a recent show the other day and I was sorta underwhelmed. I won't say it wasn't good, but I can't say it was great. Lacking something. No real energy. Maybe it was the night. I don't know what night I heard.

    Just got back from the Verizon Center show. It pretty much kicked ass. The setlist is up already: http://www.setlist.fm/setlist/dead-a...c-3f53913.html

    First of all, John Mayer kicks ass. The band sounded great. Burridge on Bass is very very solid. Jeff Chimenti on keys is definitely worthy, not very featured except on on a nice solo on Eyes of the World but solid in the mix. Highlights were a smoking Fire on the Mountain, a great Big Boss Man (an old fave of mine) and Wheel, a favorite and a great version. Wilson Pickett's "Midnight hour" closed out the show, that was nice. Touch of Grey for an encore.

    Great show. Bob was in good form and Mickey and Bill are just on it. Oteil and Chimenti are top-notch. But Mayer was pretty much great. It's obvious he's listened to this music his whole life and loves it and man he can play. Plus some nice vocals. Guy is a stud.

    If you have a chance go git sum.

    I guess it depends on your perspective. I hope it got better. Show I heard was slow.

    I think you must have heard the Albany show, which was the bands first gig. I could see it being tentative maybe. I dunno, what can I say, tonight was good.

    it's good to be good
    Something about the wrinkle in your forehead tells me there's a fit about to get thrown
    And I never hear a single word you say when you tell me not to have my fun
    It's the same old shit that I ain't gonna take off anyone.
    and I never had a shortage of people tryin' to warn me about the dangers I pose to myself.

    Sweet Aldo. The stream is spotty at best.

    Dead and Company.

    Crowd looks bored and John Maher looks like a douchebag.

    Oh and thanks AmEx for the banner ads and letting me know the song titles.

    Haters gonna hate.

    Personally I am outraged at corporate sponsorship of concerts. Yeah right.

    I'm no hater. I just have high expectations after the summer shows. Mayer seems to be a fine technician, but he doesn't play like someone that knows how to improv or get psychedelic.

    I'd certainly like to hear Oteil a bit higher in the mix. He dropped a few nice bombs though. Mickey and Bill could back up a bagpipe band and I would watch!

    The set lists seem to be pre-arranged (although they seemed to skip something after Jack Straw at the end of the first set) leaving no room for the "what should we play next" part of what makes a Dead show great.

    Read an interview with Oteil, he said Bob told him to listen the recordings from the 90's because that's where the songs were heading.

    Stoked for Worcester

    Solid solid solid. I'm a buyer. Was told backstage but turned out to be club access. That's ok free drinks n food at intermission was probably safer for me than meeting anybody.... Think will ferrell with tranq shot in neck ... Ha

    Cold rain, help slip franklin, strong strong, throw in a Stephen, Stella bdown encore, great night, theses guys are gelling quick, killing it for me . Hope for you too. I saw a lot of happy heads last night...

    John Mayer > Trey when playing with the boys. Chicago was great but I feel the notes by John Mayer bring me closer than Trey's did.

    Umm what is this silly talk? Don't let your ignorance rule your world bud.

    Got a pair of tix for Denver Wednesday 11/25 for face if anyone is looking to see what the buzz is all about.
