Video of the Week: 2012-10-12 O-o-h Child

Posted 4 years ago by tmwsiy - 5 comments Link:, posted in the Video category

Trey just wrapped up his quick tour. Sort of. He still has yet to play the legendary Capitol Theater in Port Chester, NY which has the unique distinction of having the last three scheduled appearances changed. Hopefully details of thew new date will be announced soon. In the meantime, enjoy this O-o-h Child from the Fillmore in Silver Spring, MD which Trey also picked to perform on the Jimmy Fallon show. The classic song by the Five Stairsteps was a poignant choice offering the optimistic thoughts that indeed one day "We'll walk in the rays of a beautiful sun.... When the world is much brighter".

Our thoughts are with all of our friends who were in the path of destruction earlier this week.

tmwsiy I've really grown to love TAB and find the shows relaxing, comforting, and just plain fun. Less expectations may have something to do with it but I find myself really enjoying the moment.

I look back and draw many parallels to the Jerry Garcia Band too. I never went out of my way to see JGB and often even blew them off when they were in town. I am pretty stoked to have seen the 15 or so shows that I did but wish that it was more like 30 or 40. It was a different sound of course than the Dead, augmented by horns & different arrangements. But most of all it was Jerry having an absolute blast and you could literally see some weight lifted off his shoulders. I feel the same now with TAB. Trey simply loving playing, loving his band and getting a kick out of it all. It gives me some joy too.

Crazy musical boundaries being pressed? No. Fun couple of sets of music? Yes indeed. And for a $35 ticket, I will gladly see a show every tour.

Also, the new material from Traveler translates so much better live for me than it does on the album. Particularly Corona and Architect. Thought those two sounded great and definitely can envision them becoming Phish songs.

To each their own, I enjoy a TAB show.
