Phil Lesh Hosts Telstar Jam at Terrapin Crossroads

Phil Lesh hosted his first Telstar jam at his San Rafael, CA venue Terrapin Crossroads on Sunday. As with past shows under the Telstar moniker, the evening consisted of freeform, space-inspired and electronic jams featuring the lineup of Lesh, Furthur guitarist John Kadlecik, The Black Crowes keyboardist Adam MacDougall, drummer Jaz Sawyer and Ryan Adams and the Cardinals pedal steel player Jon Graboff.

The show kicked off shortly after 9PM on Sunday with a free-form jam that eventually led into “Dark Star.” The band then jammed around the song’s loose structure, eventually winding up in jam based around the The Beatles’ sound collage “Revolution #9.” The jam eventually found its way back into the second section of “Dark Star” before venturing into another jam loosely based on “Dancing in the Streets.” The largely improvisational performance closed out with “Morning Dew.” At times, the performance also featured snippets of “China Cat Sunflower,” “Cold Rain & Snow,” “Playing In The Band,” “They Love Each Other” and more.

Here’s a look at the evening’s full setlist as it appears in our Box Scores section.
