A friend of mine caught the Phil Lesh and Friends concert last night at the Warfield Theatre in San Francisco, CA. Two special things happened. First... Bob Weir sat in for most of the show and in the first set they played the first Grateful Dead album (Grateful Dead - 1967) and in the second set they played the second Dead album (Anthem of the Sun - 1968). Pretty clever and epic at the same time. Just think... this is the first of five shows at the Warfield. I wonder what other tricks Phil will pull out of his hat!
5/13/08 Phil Lesh and Friends, Warfield Theater, San Francisco, CASo perhaps tonight, Phil Lesh will break out Aoxomoxoa in the first set and Live/Dead in the second set since those are the Dead's third and fourth albums.
