The Deadpod

Apr 21, 2023

 We are going to stick with the late 80's this week as we feature a show from the Rosemont Horizon on April 15, 1988. 

I believe this is the only Scarlet>Fire opener the boys ever played, which immediately makes the radar go up that we're in for a good show. I don't think this one disappoints. Weir slows things a bit with a 'Walkin' Blues' but Jerry follows with the always favorite 'Candyman'. Brent then goes into an unusual bluesy 'Louie, Louie' which flows really nicely into the uptempo 'Cumberland Blues' 

Weir sings the Dylan  'Stuck Inside of Mobile With the Memphis Blues Again' which goes into a nice uptempo 'Deal' to close the set.
