Two years removed from the craziness that surrounded the “comeback” tour of 1987 and the Dead’s unprecedented flirtation with mainstream success—thanks to “Touch of Grey” and the In the Dark album—the group was still riding the crest of that wave and attracting thousands of new fans with each passing tour. The summer of ’89 began in style for the Dead on the solstice itself with a nationally televised/broadcast concert from Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, Calif. A week and a half later, the GD circus hit the road for seven East Coast stadium shows, followed by a handful in Midwest amphitheaters. The group was in excellent form throughout, offering a great selection of old and recent favorites, and polishing some of the new songs which would make up their album-in-progress at the time, Built to Last. Visually, the Dead’s stage set that summer was perhaps the most spectacular they ever mounted—designed by noted Czech artist Jan Sawka, it consisted of dozens of enormous painted canvas panels covered with various patterns, colors and shapes—some abstract, some concrete; quite an amazing sight in an enormous stadium.

We're excited to announce 10/3/2009 The Town Ballroom, Buffalo, NY - the next release from Mike Gordon's five-piece band (which includes Scott Murawski on guitar, Craig Myers on percussion, Tom Cleary on keyboards and drummer Todd Isler) on CD and as a download (in both MP3 and FLAC formats) at LivePhish.com.
This 2-CD show was culled from Mike's 2009 Fall Tour and features several new songs from his repertoire including "Can't Stand Still" and "Spiral". A handful of covers, carefully deconstructed and reconstructed with a fresh twist, were also played that night including Radiohead's "15 Step", The Talking Heads' "Cities" and The Mustangs' "Time For Loving Is Now".
The show was fully remixed by Mike, from the band's multitrack recordings and is mastered. You can download the show now at LivePhish.com and pre-order it on CD at both LivePhish.com or Mike's Online Store.
Mike's upcoming March Tour begins March 5th in Troy, NY. The headlining club tour features a return to the Theatre of the Living Arts in Philadelphia and first time stops at Rams Head Live! in Baltimore, Jefferson Theatre in Charlottesville, and Revolution Hall in Troy. Part Southern gentleman, part humble artist, Danny Barnes will open for the first four dates.
Tickets for all shows are on sale now. Please visit the tourdates page at mike-gordon.com for complete details, whiffs and ticketing info.
