The Phil Lesh Quintet Close Their Reunion Run at Terrapin Crossroads with New Covers, Old Favorites

The Phil Lesh Quintet closed out their four-night reunion run at San Rafael, CA’s Terrapin Crossroads last night. The Quintet’s recent reunion run has featured a mix of exploratory jams, Grateful Dead favorites and classic rock covers as well as material from Lesh’s studio album There and Back Again. Of particular note, during last night’s performance the Quintet covered Robbie Robertson’s “Broken Arrow,” revisited the There and Back Again tune“The Real Thing” and debuted a cover of Eric Clapton’s “Forever Man.” The latter song was part of a continuous suite of music that included Traffic’s “The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys,” “The Wheel,” “Dark Star,” Bonnie Dobson’s “Morning Dew” and Wilson Pickett’s “In the Midnight Hour.” Then, the show closed with an acoustic and unplugged take on “Attics of My Life.”

Terrapin Crossroads will host the Terrapin Family Band in its bar space this Wednesday, and David Nelson Band in the Grate Room on Saturday.
