This weekend, ageless wonders Phil Lesh and Bob Weir, along with the rest of the Furthur outfit, graced the stage at Brooklyn’s MCU Park at Coney Island. For the second of a two night run in the middle of a lengthy summer tour, the band and the audience as a whole seemed a little bit tired and short on energy. However, that is not to say this show was without its highlights. Busting out of the gates with a fiery Shakedown Street, first set notables also included Sugar Magnolia and covers of Good Lovin’ (The Young Rascals), When I paint My Masterpiece (The Band), and Dear Mr. Fantasy (Traffic).

The second set began with a mellow jam leading into Cryptical Envelopment and The Other One. A St. Stephen kicked up the energy and got the set moving along quite nicely. The hands down highlight of the frame came in a trio of Dark Side of the Moon cover, Eclipse (Pink Floyd) into China Doll and Playin’ in the Band. A fitting, One More Saturday Night, closed out the two night run in Brooklyn. Furthur closes out its summer tour this week in Michigan. The fall tour dates have already been announced, and will kick off in the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Colorado.
