This classic Jed show from July 2009 show took place on the 40th anniversary of the moon landing, so its not surprising that it blasts off into space. It’s a true Jednesday affair as well, featuring two full sets of Grateful Dead music.
The first set opens with a jammin’ Candyman, and includes a bluesy New Speedway into a rare Railroad Blues. The incredible second set lifts off with a twenty-one minute warmup into Darkstar into Wharf Rat and out again. But the set reaches full orbit with a killer Playin’ In The Band leading to and incredibly inspired Drums and Space, perhaps due to the anniversary occasion, and back again through a dreamy, seamless segue.
The show wraps up with a rare Estimated and bouncy Cumberland. Enjoy!
