Woke up afraid of my own shadow.
Like, genuinely afraid.
Headed for the pawn shop
to buy myself a switchblade.
Someday something’s coming
from way out beyond the stars
to kill us while we stand here.
It will store our brains in mason jars.
And then the girl behind the counter,
she asks me how I feel today.
I feel like Lovecraft in Brooklyn.

Everybody loves a chance to sing! The boys do just that in their rendition of Maggie’s Farm, from 1991.
Today’s Daily Dose of the Dead is Gimme Some Lovin’, the Steve Winwood cover, from the June 30, 1985 Merriweather Post Pavilion show.
Phil, Phil and more Phil the next few days through Sunday.
This was a great show with an excellent set-list that featured cryptical and shakedown.
1: Half Step> C. C. Rider> B. E. Women, Mama Tried> Mexicali, Keep On Growing> Big RxR Blues> L. L. Rain> Don’t Ease
2: Shakedown> Samson, Gimme Some Lovin> He’s Gone> Cryptical> Drumz> Other One> Stella Blue> Around> Sugar Magnolia E: U. S. Blues
"Well I feel so good, everybody’s getting high . You better take it easy ‘cause the place is on fire. Been a hard day and I don’t know what to do. Wait a minute Baby, this could happen to you”
Today’s Daily Dose of the Dead is the cover of the Beatles song Why Don’t We Do it In the Road from the Merriweather Post Pavilion on June 27, 1984.
This was always a bit of a train wreck but also kinda fun. It was the first time they played it live but it didn’t get much better the other handful of times.
A short show overall.
1: Jack Straw, FOTD, Rooster, Cumberland, Esau, Loser, Let It Grow
2: Help> Slipknot> Franklin’s, Estimated> Eyes> Do It In The Road*> Drumz> Morning Dew> Throwing Stones> NFA E: Brokedown
"No one will be watching us, why don’t we do it in the road?”
The next few days on the Daily Dose of the Dead we are going to focus in on Phil. I am going to see the PLQ this Sunday at Forrest Hills Stadium so lets get down to it.
Today and tomorrow we have two Phil songs from the June 30, 1985 Merriweather Post Pavilion.
The first is the Eric Clapton song Keep on Growing.
This was a great show! More tomorrow.
Grateful Dead - Gimme Some Lovin’
Let Phil sing!
