Dark Star Orchestra Celebrates 20 Years

Submitted by Musical Earth on Thu, 01/26/2017 - 9:53 am

They'd planned it as a four-week experiment, ninety folks showed up the second week, then two hundred, then a 400-person sell-out, so it seemed like a good idea to keep going.

Dead.net Announce Dave's Picks 21

Submitted by dead.net on Tue, 01/24/2017 - 2:22 pm

"We all expect Big Things from the Big Songs, but all the smaller songs in this show are stunningly played. That extra something in every song that makes a great show GREAT? It's here in every song. And as for the bigger songs, they certainly deliver as well." - David Lemieux

Just like the man says, you've also come to expect "Big Things" from the Dave's Picks series. We certainly intend to deliver with Boston Garden, April 2, 1973, our first archival release of the new year. Clocking in at 34 songs, this one's a whopper and a solid one, at that.
