There Is Another

by thoughtsonthedead

Yes, there is a Cleveland Dark Star, and that is the massive and Proustian Dark Star that the Dead played at the Public Hall in December of ’73, but there is another Dark Star from the Land of Cleve that you should be aware of: 10/28/72, also at Public Hall.

This version is almost perfect in its 72-ness: modular and composed of several notable sections, rather than the flowing and dynamic weirdness of the 44-minute ’73. Plus, it goes into Sugar Magnolia, which is the most ’72 thing a Dark Star can do.

The whole show’s great: spend your Saturday in Cleveland.
