|Happy Birthday Phil|
It turned out to be one of the best concerts I've been to in a long time, I seriously had a great time. This just may be the best post Grateful Dead incarnation yet! These guys have a special chemistry together, and it comes across in their live music. It may have been Phil Lesh's 70th Birthday Bash, but as my roommate put it "Phil was playing like a spring chicken tonight". I agree, Phil was noticeably happy, and smiling all night. When they're having fun on stage it translates to the audience, and we all had fun tonight. For one thing they sounded great, and for another I didn't expect the band to play till 2 o'clock in the morning and that surprised me. By the time we got out of there, my dogs were really barking! You could tell, even the hardiest dancers batteries were worn down by the end. The concert was a benefit concert for the Unbroken Chain Foundation with proceeds going to support Haitian Earthquake Relief.
I shot plenty of photos at Phil's 70th Birthday, and a couple of video clips too, enjoy!
