Furthur Close Out NYE Run

Furthur closed out their New Year’s Eve run at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco last night. The band filled the three set show with plenty of transitions as 2012 segued into 2013. The night kicked off with a version of the Phil Lesh tune “Celebration” before the band offered a cover of George Harrison’s “Any Road,” and the set closed with their rendition of Martha and the Vandellas’ “Dancing in the Street.” The second set got going with an extended jam, which began with a highly appropriate version of JJ Cale’s “After Midnight,” which segued into “Playin’ in the Band,” Traffic’s “Dear Mr. Fantasy,” “The Wheel,” “Unbroken Chain” and “Let It Grow”

The music never stopped for a majority of the third set, as Furthur opened with “Sugar Magnolia” > “Help on the Way” > “Slipknot” > “Franklin’s Tower” > “Sunshine Daydream”— finally pausing before “Touch of Grey.” The band closed out with a transition heavy encore that included a “Lady With A Fan”/“Terrapin Station” that slid into “Brokedown Palace” to end the night.
