Last night, Phil Lesh celebrated his 76th birthday at the Capitol Theatre, backed by a Q-esque lineup of Friends that included Eric Krasno, Warren Haynes, John Molo, and Rob Barraco. The party was a two-set rocking affair at the Port Chester, NY venue, bringing out some of the best Grateful Dead tunes for the occasion.Fortunately, as taping has been a Grateful Dead tradition since the 1960’s, taper Dave Malloy has provided full show audio of the performance. There are a handful of videos that had previously surfaced, but this is the first full-listen for fans who were unable to attend.Tune in below:Also, check out a handful of videos from the show, captured by misteryeager:“Help On The Way”“Just A Little Light”“Shakedown Street”Setlist: Phil Lesh & Friends at The Capitol Theatre, Port Chester, NY – 3/15/16Set One: Help on the Way (RB) > Slipknot! > Just a Little Light (WH), Doin’ That Rag (RB), Let It Rain (WH), Althea (RB, WH), Bertha (RB)Set Two: Shakedown Street (WH) > Viola Lee Blues (PL, RB, WH), Eyes of the World (PL) > Playing in the Band (RB) > Lady with a Fan (PL) > Terrapin Station (PL, WH) > Morning Dew (WH), Happy Birthday to Phil!Encore: Standing on the Moon (WH)
