Dead Show/podcast for 2/27/15

This week's Deadpod comes from exactly 25 years ago, the Mardi Gras show that occurred on February 27th, 1990 at the Oakland Coliseum Arena. We'll hear the second set this week, which starts off with a long drums that allowed the Mardi Gras parade to wind its way all around the arena. The band goes into an appropriately themed Iko, Iko and Man Smart, Woman Smarter before settling into their more standard second set. A nicely done Standing on the Moon leads into Truckin' and Spoonful pre-drums. Afterwards a strong Other One, leads into a very well done Morning Dew. The boys wrap up the set with a Not Fade Away into Throwing Stones but return for a short, but sweet, We Bid You Goodnight.

Bid you Goodnight was beautiful - so were Standing on the Moon and Throwing Stones(and Bobby's voice cracked! :))
