i was really hoping someone from the board went, but no one did a show review or even a thread about it. if i was in CA i'd be there in a heartbeat.

it was my 1st time going to Philharmonia and a good time was had by all. unfortunately, no recording was allowed. i learned after the event that the "no recording" decision was made without the band's knowledge and was in conflict with the band's wishes. i also heard through the grapevine that the band was not happy when it learned after the show that taper's were shut down at the entrance. anyway, despite the fact that taping wasn't allowed, it was still a great event. here's the setlist...

Sugar Magnolia
New Speedway Boogie
Big River
Peggy-O
Bring You Down
Never Satisfied
Uncle John’s Band
Acadian Driftwood
Deep Elem Blues
Cumberland Blues
Sigh No More
The Wheel
Franklin’s Tower (Jackie Greene on lead vocals)
Goin’ Down The Road Feeling Bad
Brokedown Palace
Angel Band

Here is the review that a friend sent to me. There are a few typos, and it also says that Phil's sons only sat in for a few songs. This is incorrect... they played the whole set.

Review:

Phil Lesh hosted his annual Philharmonia event at San Francisco, CA’s Bay Area Women’s & Children’s Center yesterday afternoon. Lesh performed with a core band that included Bob Weir on guitar and vocals as well as Jackie Greene on keyboards and vocals. Greene also played banjo on a few numbers, including “Big River,” “Uncle John’s Band,” “Cumberland Blues” and “The Wheel.” In addition, led the ensemble through his own “Never Satisfied.” Jonathan Levine, Jordan Levine and Leena Culhane also backed the musicians during the afternoon performance.
The Grateful Dead bassist’s sons Brian and Lesh also sang on a few songs during the show, including “Bring You Down,” The Band’s “Acadian Driftwood” and Mumford & Sons’ “Sigh No More.” The Lesh family introduced the latter two covers during a recent performance at Levon Helm’s Midnight Ramble. The show came to a close with a choice version of The Stanley Brothers’ “Angel Band.”
