May 9, 2009 The Dead Play Two Second Sets in LA

The 2009 tour of The Dead was a tremendous tour with Warren Haynes joining the gang.  Many shows appeared on Sirius, and I ordered the nightly FLAC downloads from and nugs.  One thing early that caught my ear was this early first set standalone Goin Down the Road Feeling Bad in Worcester in April.  And I was excited to get my pal Evan and head to the Forum for one show late in the tour.   We paid bank and sat second row center, so the two Set Twos made perfect sense.  We even got to go to a little room in the Forum and get carrots and dip. And lucky for me they skipped set one and played two Set Twos. Listen here
