On Friday night, Phil Lesh led a recreation of a classic Grateful Dead show at his own Terrapin Crossroads in San Rafael, CA, continuing his series of three “On This Date in Dead History” shows at the venue that started with a 1987 show on Wednesday.
Last night, Lesh was once again joined by guitarists Anders Osborne and Stu Allen, Particle keyboardist Steve Molitz and drummer Nathan Graham, plus guest vocalist Elliott Peck from Midnight North. The collective chose to recreate the Dead’s November 16, 1978 show at Chicago’s Uptown Theater.
The setlist included Dead classics like opener “New Minglewood Blues,” “Dire Wolf” and “Brown Eyed Women” along with covers of “Stagger Lee” and “Dancing in the Street” in the first set, followed by a second set kicked off by “Scarlet”> “Fire” and closing with “Truckin'” before a “U.S. Blues” encore.
See the full setlist below (via JamBase) along with video of the beginning of the second set, shared from the nugs.net stream. Lesh and company will return to Terrapin Crossroads tomorrow night to wrap up the “On This Day” run.
