This New Year’s Eve, Dark Star Orchestra will present a “cosmic” three-set affair at Philadelphia’s Electric Factory.
Along with artwork referencing the Dead’s time in Egypt, which was chronicled in 2008’s live album Rocking the Cradle: Egypt 1978, DSO will be hosting a costume contest for best male, female and couple costumes, awarding the best pharaohs, sphinxes and mummies in attendance.
Before ringing in 2018 by themselves, the band will welcome Dirty Dozen Brass Band on December 29 and Keller Williams on December 30. DSO is also playing a December 28 show at the Wellmont Theatre in Montclair, NJ.
