Go figure, I had no idea how good Furthur is until I actually listened to them. That didn’t happen until this week at the Palms. These guys crushed just about every song...hard off the wall or out of the park. They totally had their way with the music. Jeff Chimenti\'s playing is astonishing; thrilling; maybe the greatest keyboard player the Dead never had. Throw in Phil, Bob, a sweet-sounding guitar, and great drumming, and baby, you got a stew going. Probably as tasty as it\'s been since, you know.
So I say to you, go to LA this weekend if you can...the vibe is alive and the music\'s exquisite. I’m so grateful that someone convinced me to just go, dude, just go, and add a couple of 2013 Furthur shows to my 60-show GD resume.
