Furthur Experiments at Bob Weir’s TRI Studios

Last night, Furthur graced the stage of Bob Weir’s brand new, state of the art, Tamalpais Research Institute (aka TRI Studios) for the first time. The Marin County-based studio’s second ever live performance was webcast in real time with HD audio and video through its website for just under $20. “It sounds better than the best of clubs, and it’s in your living room. It’s a new kind of concert experience,” Weir recently told The Marin Examiner in an interview.

Over the course of nearly two hours, Furthur performed a single, flowing set packed with multiple highlights in what was dubbed “Furthur Experiments at TRI.” The results of the experiment seemed positive, aside from a few brief issues with the stream.

In addition, New York’s Brooklyn Bowl hosted a free “BOWLcast” with the TRI webcast displayed on large projection screens throughout the venue. Coincidentally, Brooklyn native Joe Russo could be seen sporting a Brooklyn Bowl t-shirt throughout the webcast. Following the performance, TRI issued this statement, “We thank everyone that supported us for ‘Furthur experiments at TRI.’ For all you that bought the show lookout for a special announcement tomorrow.”

The best thing that could possibly happen for this group would be for N. Scully to cast a spell keeping Phil away from microphones forever, retroactive to the initial rising of the mound from the waters.

I’m cool with Phil singing his songs, but I’d rather hear JK sing the Jerry tunes. Same goes for Bobby.

The show was excellent. I liked the format and the sound quality and picture quality was great. If you want to hear a singing band go see one of those. These guys may not sing as well as some but they kick ass. Go Futhur, thank you for everything you do for us fans.

I agree 100% with tut, I saw 100plus GD shows and numerous incarnations of the band since.I cringe every time Phil goes to the mic. Let John sing all the Jerry songs, he has the best voice.One more thing, stop playing “one more saturday night“every saturday its tired. The donor rant has got to go also. We all know the good things that come from being one. Hey Phil can you honesly say your bank accoount had nothing to do with the speed at which your number came up on the recipient list. I didnt think so.

These guys are incredible. Did anybody catch the incredible drum work of Jay during terrapin? You could not even see his hands because they were moving so fast. He is unreal. I think he is one of the top drummers out ther right now. Phil and Bob are still sounding amazing. John and Jeff are incredible musicians. Keep going guys PLEASE
