Openers are New Riders of the Purple Sage. A different type of show, as it’s seated, plus there’s a firm 11 PM curfew. Nevertheless, the show will be a blast. Tomorrow night we have the band for a much longer show at Penn’s Peak in Jim Thorpe PA.
Our friend Andrew commented that he hopes tonight isn’t like the Brookhaven show from last year, where the band played to an auditorium full of particle physicists. They sat all night and only a few of us were actually up and dancing on the sides. It was truly weird.
There are hopes that Dave Nelson and/or Buddy Cage sit in with the band tonight for some Dead tunes, but I wouldn’t count on it.
