Furthur Kick Off Capitol Theatre Run

Furthur kicked off their sold out, nine-night run at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY last night. The band started off the first set with a jam that became “Truckin’” before playing into “Bertha.” The set also included “Friend of the Devil” into “Cumberland Blues,” followed by a ““Candyman,” “He’s Gone” and “Cold Rain and Snow.”

The music never stopped for the second set, which began with a “Shakedown Street” that transitioned into a jam, followed by “Caution (Do Not Stop On Tracks)” into “St. Stephen,” “Born Cross-Eyed,” Bob Dylan’s “All Along the Watchtower,” “Mountain Song,” and “So Many Roads” before closing out with “Goin’ Down The Road Feeling Bad.” The band then encored with “U.S. Blues.”

The show gave the Capitol Theatre a chance to show off its state-of-the-art lighting system, with the Steal Your Face and other Grateful Dead iconography projected on to the walls and ceilings of the classic venue. Furthur will perform at the theatre again tonight, and the band has eight more shows there until the run closes on April 25.

Very nice of you to complement the “state-of-the-art lighting system, with the Steal Your Face and other Grateful Dead iconography projected on to the walls and ceilings” and not mention the performance or sound mix last night.

hey voodoo chile… The tab for this page says NEWS, not REVIEWS... for those of us who’ve been to the Cap, but haven’t seen much use of the lighting system, this IS news. Just sayin’...

I have a feeling if the article brought up “the performance and sound” voodoo chile would be bitching that they didn’t bring up the “state of the art lighting system”.

Eric, my friend, you hit the nail on the head.

One more thing, that picture looks INSANE! How can anybody bitch about mentioning that? Good work CAP.
