Phil & Friends Cover Bob Dylan, Rolling Stones, Traffic and More
Phil Lesh and Friends played another cover heavy show for their second performances at the newly reopened Terrapin Crossroads Grate Room last night. The band consisted of the same stellar line up as the previous night, with Phil Lesh on bass, Warren Haynes on guitar, John Medeski on keys, Joe Russo on the drums and John Scofield on guitar. For the first set, the crowd was treated to a “Crazy Fingers” sandwiched between a rendition of Traffic’s “Low Spark of High Heeled Boys,” as well as a version of the Rolling Stones’ “Good Times, Bad Times.” The band then did their takes on Bob Dylan’s “All Along the Watchtower,” Sonny Boy Williamson’s “Eyesight to the Blind” and Derek and the Dominos’ “Why Does Love Got to Be So Sad” during the second set before encoring with another Dylan tune, “Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues.” Jackie Greene was the opening act. Last night’s full set list can be viewed below.
As previously reported, this particular incarnation of Phil Lesh and Friends will play one more show at the Terrapin Crossroads Grate Room tonight. The performance will be streamed live via the Terrapin Crossroads store starting at 7pm PST. You can purchase the stream for here for $7. The venue will also be streaming the rest of the “Two Week Terrapin Extravaganza” shows, which take place December 6-9.
