    I saw these guys play in Buffalo, NY right by the water and it started to rain so hard that they had to stop playing for awhile. When it stopped raining they started playing again and a double rainbow came through the clouds over the river. It was so serendipitous :)

    Having seen them in San Francisco at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, I'm really looking forward to seeing them in my hometown - London. Any ideas on which show they will be covering?

    Not generally a fan of cover bands either. But I saw DSO years ago at a festival and was pretty impressed. I probably would never buy a ticket just to see them but they are definitely worth checking out at a festival or something.

    Man, I detest cover bands. Also, no one can be the Dead. Hell, it got too much even for Jerry. That may have been in bad taste...

    they don't stick to an exact setlist, they pick a show that the dead did, and follow that. They usually change it up, and add some songs of their own, its more of an 'imitation'
