After a run at the Brooklyn Bowl, Phil is back in his old stomping grounds, Terrapin Crossroads. A couple of nights ago, Phil played a gig titled “Terrapin House Party” with the Terrapin Family Band Ross James, Nicki Bluhm, Jason Crosby & Alex Koford, with a special guests, Neal Casal and Nicki Bluhm.
In all, Phil and friends rocked the Terrapin Crossroads bar with three sets of Dead tunes and covers. Awesome footage of “China Cat Sunflower > The Music Never Stopped” and “Truckin'” have surfaced and reveal a versatile line-up with a ton of energy. The seat we get for “China Cat Sunflower” shows Neal Casal’s amazing, yet effortless guitar playing up close.
For “Truckin'” we are sitting Phil-side and are treated to 14+ minutes of hard-rockin’ bar-blues.
“Truckin'” slips into a serious “West LA Fadeaway” groove. For both of these tunes, Danny Click sits in and adds extra guitar firepower.
“I Know You Rider”
