The Dead - "Free The Dead" NYC Taxi Tour

To celebrate The Dead starting their new tour. They played three concerts on Friday March 30th. All the shows were free to their fans. Now, that is cool. Wish I lived in New York. Fortunately, some very nice Deadheads took the time to record these concerts and share them with the rest of us. Big big THANK YOU to them. The first show was acoustic. The second was electric. These are audience recordings. And they both sound amazing. The Blender Theater concert sounds amazingly clear. You just can't beat the sound of Neumann microphones. The Angel Orensanz Center for the Arts concert is just a bit shy, but still sounds wonderful. The tour kicks off April 12th, in Greensboro, North Carolina at the Coliseum. A bunch of my friends and I are making the trip. And from there I'm off to Boston to see them on the 18th and 19th. See everybody opening night for the Long Strange Trip.
