Was Carrot top an act, or a spectacle spectator

the latter. We stood in Gen Admin right behind the control boards. he came waltzing in with a 50? yr old woman with nearly as much plastic surgery as him. They let him inside the little fenced in area there. Liz eventually got the nerve up to pester him during a lul. He was nice enough. Said he liked my red beard.

For my birthday, Twil took us to see Leonard Cohen. It was really amazing. All I can say is Hallelujah!

When I saw the announcement that the Grateful Dead were doing one last set of concerts in Soldier Field this summer, I got all nostalgic and thought about how cool it would be to be there. The end of an era! 50 years.

Then I thought about the logistics of getting there, and squeezing it into an overbooked summer. And I remembered how bad they sounded the last time they came through town. So I forgot about it.


Now I see that tickets went on sale over the weekend and sold out in just a couple minutes. Breaking some Ticketmaster record. And scalpers are selling for up to $15K per ticket.

glatt - I agree with you. Last time I saw any of them they were awful. Bobby lost his voice what seems a decade ago. Phil never had one... I called my ex brother-in-law and we were talking about it ... he somehow got tix for $300. He's taking his wife and 2 daughters. They're all flying in from Cali. I noticed that a bunch of other friends are going as well.
Me? I'm going to spend $90 TOTAL to go see DSO at the Queen in Wilmington DE again. This time with both my sons. IF you haven't seen them, go. Well worth it.

I figured it was a tribute band. So I Googled it, and it is.

Dark Star Orchestra

Apparently they are so serious about it that they have been joined onstage by Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Bill Kreutzmann, and Donna Jean Godchaux. Bizarrre that the originals would play with a tribute band.
