Phil Lesh Welcomes Scott Metzger, Adds Dates at Brooklyn Bowl
Last night, Phil Lesh & The Terrapin Family Band rounded out their run at New York’s Brooklyn Bowl with two sets of Grateful Dead favorites that ended up featuring a guest spot from WOLF! and Joe Russo’s Almost Dead guitarist Scott Metzger.
After a first set that featured Dead staples like “Sugar Magnolias,” “Scarlet Begonias” and “Fire On the Mountain,” the second frame kicked off with The Velvet Underground’s “Sweet Jane” and the Dead’s “Cumberland Blues” before Metzger emerged to lend his guitar to “Viola Lee Blues.” See the full setlist below. Metzger has played with Lesh in the past, including a PhilRAD collaboration in late 2014. See more photos from last night’s show here.
After finishing their run at Brooklyn Bowl, Lesh and The Terrapin Family Band have announced another two-night stand at the venue, taking place on March 12–13. Tickets for those shows go on sale this Friday, February 17. More information can be found here.
