Set List for Tonight's Dead Show Inaugural Concert
A little bird with close ties to the Dead tells the Sleuth you're in for a real treat tonight if you're among the lucky Deadheads holding tickets to tonight's Mid-Atlantic Inaugural Ball.
Among the songs they're planning: Touch of Grey, U.S. Blues and Uncle John's Band.
Can you feel it yet?
It'll be a short show, of course, not a full concert.
As the Sleuth was first to report, the Jerry-less incarnation of the Grateful Dead suddenly made the Mid-Atlantic ball cool. All of them will be there tonight - Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, Phil Lesh, Bill Kreutzmann, as well as keyboardist Jeff Chimenti of RatDog and Warren Haynes (of the Allman Brothers and Gov't Mule). Haynes will be playing lead guitar with the Dead on their tour this spring.
They're set to perform at the Verizon Center on April 14. The Sleuth will be there. Sadly, we'll miss tonight's show as we'll be covering other unofficial events - including the Human Rights Campaign party (we go where the gossip is) and the late-night Google party.
