Counting Crows Salute the Grateful Dead, Play Stealth Club Show

Counting Crows headlined Port Chester, NY’s The Capitol Theatre last night. In honor of the Dead’s rich history with the recently renovated theater, Counting Crows busted out their cover of
“Friend of the Devil” during the performance. The group recorded the American Beauty classic for their 2004 best of album Films About Ghosts and even performed the tune with Bob Weir. Before they launched into the number last night, guitarist David Immergl├╝ck said, “I have about three bootlegs of the Grateful Dead playing in this room in 1971.”

In related news, on Friday Counting Crows played a surprise acoustic set at New York’s Bowery Electric. The announced set took place during a CMJ showcase sponsored by Duritz known as The Outlaw Roadshow. Billed as Sonic Cow Grunts, Crows members Duritz, Immergl├╝ck, guitarist Dan Vickrey and keyboardist Charlie Gillingham offered a 75-minute show featuring songs like “When I Dream Of Michelangelo,” “Hospital,” “If I Could Give All My Love (Richard Manuel Is Dead),” “Miami,” “Four White Stallions,” “ Le Ballet D’or,” “Miss Ohio,” “A Long December,” “Girl from North Country,” “Rain King,” “Washington Square” and “You Ain’t Going Nowhere.”

Counting Crows should not even be allowed to say the words “Grateful Dead”. They suck beyond sucking.
