Announcing the Launch of DSO Downloads

Dark Star Orchestra is pleased to announce the launch of a new live download site with nugs.net. Our first releases are culled from the Rex Caravan tour and were recorded live by our monitor engineer Mike Tomascovic and mastered by Rob Eaton. In the coming months DSO will continue to add new shows to the site from future tour dates as well as digging into our vault for gems from tours gone by.

From Winterland to Winter Tour

Hot off the 'Closing of Winterland' recreation from our Cosmic New Year's Eve, DSO is hitting the road again on their Winter Tour. This trek will find the band heading south to the Sunshine state to kick things off with a show in Lake Buena Vista at The House of Blues. From there the band weaves through the southeast with a 2 night stand at Variety Playhouse in Atlanta with Cornmeal opening both nights. From there its north into the Carolina's and into Kentucky for our first show at the Madison Theater in Covington, KY. Continuing on the northbound trek DSO has shows in OH, PA and IN before a Windy City stop at The Vic Theater and two nights in WI (Milwaukee and Madison) to close out the tour.

Visit the Tour Dates Page for more info. Hope to see you on the road!

Moving On Down The Road...

As we gear up for the upcoming Winter Tour, its hard to forget that spring is right around the corner. When the weather starts to warm up DSO will go out west starting in the 'Mile High City" with a show at The Oriental Theater and 2 nights at The Boulder Theater. From there the band makes stops throughout the Rockies and lands in the Marquee Theatre in Tempe AZ, before cruising up the Pacific coast with 3 nights at The Great American Music Hall along the way plus their first visit to The Wells Fargo Center in Santa Rosa capping it all off with stops at The Crystal Ballroom in Portland and McDonald Theater in Eugene OR.

Check out the Tour Dates Page for the full list of shows.

Side Projects

Just before DSO kicks off their winter tour both guitar players will be in action with their side projects.

Catch Rob Eaton's side project: Rocky Mountain Grateful Dead Revue Fri Jan 23 - Three20South (formally known as Sherpa & Yeti's) in Breckenridge CO if you are in the mountains. If you find yourself on the east coast swing by the Contradiction Dance Studio in Takoma Park, MD to see John Kadlecik's project Firewheel performing as part of Musical Traditions "Next to the House" Concert Series.

Full details for both shows and all DSO tour dates can be found on tour dates page.
