Comes a Time: A Tribute to Jerry

Since I can’t think of a proper opening paragraph to this post, let me just say this: I’m extremely jealous of those fortunate enough to have attended this weekend’s Comes a Time tribute to Jerry Garcia.

For those of you who may not have heard about this, the night’s festivities included former Dead members Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, Bill Kreuztmann, Donna Jean Godchaux and Bruce Hornsby, along with Trey Anastasio, Warren Haynes, Gloria Jones, Jackie LaBranch, David Nelson, Sandy Rothman, Melvin Seals, Patti Smith, members of the String Cheese Incident — Jason Hann, Michael Kang, Keith Moseley and Billy Nershi — and Ratdog members Kenny Brooks, Jeff Chimenti, Mark Karan, Jay Lane and Robin Sylvester. No Phil Lesh in the mix for some reason, but that's a fantastic lineup.

A recording of the show’s already up on etree — hop on the torrent and see the setlist here; Famed Phish timer and PT dweller ZZYZX’s pics from the event; Event rehearsal pics from Robert Minkin Photography; Actual gig pics from the same site; and though it's incomplete, here are some of the song lineups from the show over at the LMB -- enjoy!

And this just in...the Standing on the Moon with Bruce and Trey, as well as Loser and Eyes of the World.

Friend of Slack, Mitchell VergerDertz III, actually attended this show, but he either died there or hasn't woken up from a drug-induced coma, so we have no first-hand review to report. Anyone else go to this and can provide some details?

Duuuude, you're thinking of the 7/21/90 show in Rochester, Ethan...that was the one with the uber-heady Hold On > You're in Love jam > Release Me > Hold On reprise second set closer.

7/19/90 in Buffalo was fuckin' weak.
