Furthur & Phil Lesh's 70th Birthday Bash

Happy Birthday Phil
We have been hunkered down in Tahoe for winter, so I was really looking forward to the Furthur Concert at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco, CA. I hadn't caught any Furthur shows yet, so I wasn't sure what to expect.

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!

Deadhead Parking Only

We are headed down to San Francisco to see Furthur concert tonight and it's snowing in Tahoe. We stopped by Scott & Steve's to pick up our cooler and shot the Deadhead Parking sign in their driveway.

On The Way to Northstar at Tahoe

We woke up to like 5 inches of fresh snow on Lake Tahoe's south shore. We decided to drive north up to Northstar at Tahoe for skiing today.  It was my first time skiing at Northstar and we had a nice day skiing on the mountain. There was a good 6 inches of light fluffy powder on top of the ski hill which made for nice conditions.

Here's a picture of Lake Tahoe on our way driving up to
Northstar at Tahoe this morning along the east shore.
