The Week That Was: Sitting In Tonight…

Three of our favorite guitarists showed up on other people’s stages this weekend, sending message boards into fits of excessive geekery. Former 70 Volt Parade lead singer Trey Anastasio sat in with Phil Lesh & Friends in Glens Falls, almost 13 years after Big Red threw the White Album down in the same locale. If you want to parse the setlist like a Federal Reserve public statement, most of the songs played read like one long jail/arrest joke. I can laugh with that (setlist here; torrent; videos).


Elsewhere, Bob Weir joined Tea Leaf Green (above) at the Benefit for the Rainforest Action Network. The recent birthday boy played Garden Part II, and then former Dead bandmate Bill Kreutzmann came out for another four songs, the last of which was an I’ve Got a Feeling with Sean Lennon. And last night at the Nokia, Scott Metzger replaced Umphrey’s McGee guitarist Brendan Bayliss for the second half of Immigrant Song. We were there, and it ripped. Also, Matisyahu sat in and the stoned kid next to me just about flipped out, then told us he was “on his label.” Weird. Anyway, now let us look back at last week:

    Great to hear that Trey’s “breaking out” by playing with Phil. Should be a good warm-up for the next time DSO’s in town.
