Phil Lesh continued a brief run with the Terrapin Family Band and special guests Eric Krasno and Nicki Bluhm with a stop at the Exit/In in Nashville where the ensemble honored the late Malcolm Young in the first set of the night.
Before the tribute, the group rolled through tunes like “Second That Emotion” led by Bluhm as well as a Ross James-led “Texas Gales” before Krasno took on “Scarlet Begonias.” Alex Koford brought the band into Ryan Adams’ Dead-era album Cold Roses with the standout “Magnolia Mountain” and then the group worked in a snippet of AC/DC’s “Back in Black” during a sprawling “St. Stephen.”
Additional highlights throughout the show included Grahame Lesh taking the lead on “Born Cross-Eyed” and a decidedly Dead finish with a run through “Estimated Prophet,” “Help On the Way,” “Slipknot” and “Franklin’s Tower” on their way to the end of the show.
