    Hi All,
    I just got to get this “off my chest”…
    Not a big fan of tonight’s Dead to the World show. I’m all for true collaboration, and I think there were some really good “ideas” for tonight’s show…but wow…
    Perhaps it’s the message with some of the ad lib rap…for me, the Dead’s music and jam band music for the most part is not about a single person but more about the music…but that’s just me.

    Please learn not to grip the mic so hard…yes, it causes feedback.

    Oh, and just a suggestion but get rid of that “huh” thing that you do in between verses…for someone like me who listens to “a lot” of radio…it’s disturbs the groove dude…like Roger Waters once said about the creation of Dark Side…go ahead…leave a hole…let the music play for a few bars…it’s okay.

    Cheers all

    I, on the other hand, dug the show but I do have a bit of a critique; maybe I missed it but I never heard the names of the rapper or the musicians backing him up mentioned. I did hear some references in the actual raps to Jay Lane and Band of Brothers but I couldn’t tell if those were just props or in-song announcements of who we were hearing.

    So, uh, who was that? It’s not shown on the setlist, program descripton or anywhere else that I can find.

    I dug the raps and the messages that they contained, it was an interesting flow and unique approach.

    But I agree with the previous poster on all of the “huh, huh”s sprinkled throughout the raps, never did understand those..

    Hi KPFA, can I post the set list here? Do I need to shorten it, it might be too long?
