Dark Star Orchestra 2012 West Coast Spring Tour

A Grand Introduction

What a great way to kick into our 2nd set in the nation's capitol: Dark Star was proud to welcome Senator Al Franken to the stage of the 9:30 Club on Friday December 2. Adding humor and history, the Senator introduced the band with allusions to the intro he gave to the Dead at Radio City Music Hall in 1980. Maybe you were there in New York and remember...but if not, you can watch last Friday's introduction here.

Spring Tour West

We are excited to announce our Spring Tour, following on the heels of our trip to Europe! Back to some of our favorite haunts on the Left Coast, we'll travel from Seattle south to Solana Beach, including 3 nights at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco. See the full list on our tour page.
Cosmic New Year's Run

Don't have plans for New Year's Eve yet? How about joining us for a 4 night East Coast Party? Our Cosmic New Year's Run starts in Baltimore at Ram's Head Live on December 28th. From there we'll take it into the 29th at the Electric Factory in Philly, where we'll recreate a 3-set show including acoustic and electric sets. The 2 nights at the Wellmont in Montclair, NJ will both be 3-set shows - including an acoustic first set on the 30th. On NYE we will bid good night to 2011 with a GD decade retrospective, recreating 3 classic sets from the 60's, 70's and 80's.

Tickets to the 28th and 29th are still available via DSOtix.

Tickets for the 30th are available HERE and NYE tickets are available HERE.

Don't forget our special hotel deal for those of you joining us for NYE Weekend. For $129 per night you can stay at the Courtyard by Marriott in West Orange, NJ. To get the deal call 973-669-4725 and mention the Dark Star New Years Eve block.

Helping Hungry Strangers

At the Dark Star shows on Dec. 5th, 7th, 9th, and 10th, good fans from all around the Northeast brought food and other necessities to be delivered to local food banks, pantries, and shelters. Thanks to you, and to the awesome people who organize Strangers Helping Strangers, music fans who have been helping end hunger locally since 1997.

Music is enough for a lifetime, but a lifetime is not enough for music - Sergei Rachmaninoff
