Post DSO at Wanee
Since DSO does not simply cover the Dead, they cover entire historic Dead shows, I decide to speculate which show they might cover. As they are playing on 4/20, I decide to look up all the 4/20 shows the Dead performed. To my surprise they only play on 4/20 four time throughout their career (must have been busy celebrating the day). The played twice early in the career, 68 & 69, and twice in the early 80s, 83 & 84. There is no set list for the 68 show available (at least I cannot find one), but here are the others. Could one of these be the show we get from DSO this year?

I like how you think!! This is a stellar idea.

I dig the 4/20/84 setlist. Save for the (erk) Day Job encore. First set looks killer. Thus it ever was with the Good Ol' Grateful Dead, always an occasional dose of WTF, in all that sublime tuneage. :D

So, the term "420" was coined in 1971 by a group of teenagers. One the kids' older brother was friends with Phil Lesh, and that's how the term caught on among the band. Even so, it had to take years for it to become "a thing".

From Huffington Post: "As the Grateful Dead toured the globe through the ‘70s and ‘80s, playing hundreds of shows a year - the term spread though the Dead underground. Once High Times got hip to it, the magazine helped take it global."

So, with that, it was sort of later in the GD game that 4/20 even became a notable date. (at this point, I'm going to plead ignorance because I'm under 40 and grew up in the woods. :oops:). I'd assume that's why there were only 4 4/20 shows (and 2 were completely inconsequential).

If you're interested, this is really interesting:

The 84 set list is pretty sweet? Also, DSO (Lisa Mackey) brings a smile to the Donna years. So to me, it doesn't matter what show they do. I do prefer they orchestrate a show over playing there own set list though.
