Dark Star Orchestra, you truly never disappoint. In fact, my only complaint would have to be that Revolution had the crowd packed in like a can of sardines. If it wasn’t for the chemistry of the band twisted with the positive energy of the crowd, I may not have been able to make it through the entire show. Thankfully for us all, DSO played what seemed like the soundtrack to each one of our lives last night.
With favorites like “Help On The Way,”" Slipknot,” “Franklin’s Tower,” “Playin’ In The Band,” and “Terrapin Station,” it came as no surprise when the crowd came out roaring “The Music Never Stopped.” Through each high-energy tune mixed with the to-be-expected jams, there wasn’t a single still body – the venue was filled with fans dancing with delight.
The most interesting feat of the night came in the form of outside venders, something that’s certainly not new for a community of Deadheads, but definitely unseen (at least by myself) at a Revolution show. It’s nice to see a venue cater to their crowd, especially when considering the way the pre-show line wrapped around the parking lot.
Whether you’re a seasoned Deadhead or new to the genre, one thing is for sure: this was an A+ show. In fact, I may go as far as to say that last nights show threw their Garlic Fest 2011 show out of the water. Either way, we’re always going to look forward to the next one!
