This past Friday night in Fort Collins, CO, fans packed Aggie Theatre to enjoy the music of the Grateful Dead, Pink Floyd, and Phish. Two bands, Dead Floyd and DeadPhish Orchestra, brought the heat to the town affectionately known as “Fort Fun” with a non-stop show of classics from the three heavy-weight acts.

Both Colorado-based groups brought plenty of jam to the table, with a little dash of some uptempo funk to a few of the number played during the evening (i.e. “Dead Floyd during “Another Brick in the Wall Pt. 2,” seen below). They also played around with each other’s setlists, as DeadPhish Orchestra began both “Dark Star” and “Slipknot,” with Dead Floyd finishing the songs during their own set.

DPO setlist consisted of Pink Floyd’s “Goodbye Cruel World,” a much welcomed “Lizards,” and a “Harry Hood > Bertha > Harry Hood”, the latter of which witnessed a “Goodbye Cruel World” refrain. All in all, a very creative set from the band out of Boulder.

Highlights from the Dead Floyd set were a beautiful “Althea”, and a really well-played “Take It Back > Scarlet Begonias > Dark Star > Slipknot!” The lasers that the group brought along were a nice touch for the eyes to behold as the group went deep into some Pink Floyd numbers. “Pigs (3 Different Ones) > Not Fade Away” brought the evening to a successful conclusion as the crowd waltzed their way out onto the streets of “Fort Fun.”
