Furthur’s Double "Slipknot!"

Last evening, Furthur performed the first of three shows at San Francisco’s Bill Graham Civic Auditorium. The night opened with a jam which led into “Help on the Way” and “Slipknot!” but then—rather than continuing on into “Franklin’s Tower”—the band took a detour that carried the music into “Estimated Prophet” and “Brown Eyed Women.” Then group returned to the sequence at the close of set two as “Goin’ Down the Road Feeling Bad” gave way to “Slipknot!” once again and then finally “Franklin’s Tower.” Another highlight came a bit earlier in the second set during a passage that featured “China Cat Sunflower,” “Scarlet Begonias,” “Truckin” and “New Speedway Boogie.”

The complete setlist appears below, drawn from our Box Scores section.
