Confession: I previously thought my favorite place to play with Dead & Company was Alpine Valley. I had always heard about how great those Grateful Dead shows were. But last night in Eugene, OR was something different.

It was like some kind of GD nerve center. Like the “Old Growth Forest” of Deadheads. I’m not sure how to describe it but it was a new high for me and it revealed an even deeper level of the love this particular fanbase has to offer. 

And I say this having just had another transcendent night at the Gorge so you know it must have been SERIOUS at Autzen Stadium last night.

Thank you to my bandmates and thank you Deadheads old and new.
