Phil Lesh & Friends played their first show of the year at The Warfield in San Francisco on Saturday.

Featuring a lineup of frequent collaborators including drummer John Molo, keyboardist Steve Molitz, guitarists Eric Krasno and Stu Allen, and the Grateful Dead bassist’s son Grahame Lesh, the band opened with a lengthy, 15+ minute “Playing in the Band” before settling down easy with “Born Cross-Eyed”. The Beatles‘ “Strawberry Fields Forever”, played by Phil & Friends for the first time since 2015, came next ahead of “Doin’ That Rag”, “Althea”, “Mississippi Half-Step Uptown Toodeloo”, each of which stretched to the ten-minute mark.

Set two featured free-flowing segues beginning with “Lady With a Fan” > “Terrapin Station” > “Stella Blue” > “Terrapin Station”. After drifting through Robert Hunter’s final piece of the “Terrapin Station” movement, “Jack O’Roses”, without a pause, the segues continued with “St. Stephen” > “The Eleven” > “China Cat Sunflower” > “I Know You Rider”, with nearly 20-minute jam to cap off the set. For the encore, Lesh’s signature “Box of Rain” brought his first show of the year to a close.
