Phil Lesh and Friends Setlist - 5/18/08 Warfield Theater, San Francisco, CA

Tonight is supposed to be a special night at the Warfield. After four epic nights of covering entire Grateful Dead albums, Phil Lesh is closing out his five show run with a three set performance that included several special guests such as Bob Weir.

Over at the Phil Zone, the thread for the 5/18 show mentioned...
tonight's set timing from official staff handout:
1st set 9-10:15
2nd set 11-12:15
3rd set 1-2:30
The first set featured Phil Lesh playing as a trio with Bobby and John Molo. They opened with a cover of Come Together. Other highlights included a sizzling Dark Star and West L.A. Fadeaway.

During the set break, in between the first and second set, Jackie Green and Larry Campbell played a mini-acoustic set around 15-20 minutes long. That song list is incomplete but I got word that they played a couple of tunes including Deep Elum Blues.

Phil Lesh's normal line up appeared for the second set. They opened with a bong-rattling Shakedown Street. Phil sung on Althea! Mark Karan sat in for a couple of songs. That second set which also included an instrumental version of Stella Blue before they ended the set around 1:15am with Sugaree.

During setbreak, Jackie Green played a few songs with Tim Bluhm.

Third set began around 2am with a balloon drop from the ceiling and Sugar Magnolia. Set 3 ended around 3am and featured heavy hitters such as Uncle John's Band and Terrapin.

Here's the setlist so far. We'll do our best to update it as more info comes forth!
