hampton coliseum


“That’s the day I realized there was this entire life behind things, and this incredibly benevolent force that wanted me to know that there was no reason to be afraid, ever. Sometimes there’s so much beauty in the world, I feel like I can’t take it.”
Basslights was unreal, nothing compares to the feeling of a bassnectar show
And pretty lights fucking killed it.

Feel Like a Stranger

Today’s Daily Dose of the Dead continues the “trip” down 1981’s memory lane or what is left of it. This is Feel Like a Stranger from the Hampton Coliseum on May 1, 1981.

This is an especially funky stranger which opens up an excellent second set in terms of energy and quality of the music.

1: Alabama> Promised, FOTD> Me & My Uncle> Big River, Althea> Rooster, Tennessee Jed> Let It Grow> Deal

2: Stranger> Franklin’s> Sailor> Saint> He’s Gone> Other One> Drums> Wheel> Wharf Rat> Sugar Magnolia E: U. S. Blues

At nearly 10 minutes long there is plenty of jam in this sandwich! If you are not up and dancing by the end of this tune you must be dead.

Enjoy it all…

“Well the music’s thundering, we’re restless and hot. You keep firing glances across the room.”
