Dark Star Orchestra, perhaps one of the best and most faithful Grateful Dead cover bands, landed in Princeton, NJ earlier this week. DSO has made a name for themselves over the year by not only producing some of the finest musicians in the Dead/jam band scene, but also for recreating Grateful Dead shows song for song in their entirety.
DSO treated Princeton to an “old school” Dead show that included lots of rarities and old favorites including “Hard to Handle,” “Viola Lee Blues” and their namesake, “Dark Star.”
