Another Phil Lesh Poster Reveals Setlist Themes For Best Buy Theater Run In Times Square (11/5, 11/6, 11/7, 11/8, 11/9, 2013)

After treating Capitol Theater attendees to healthy helpings of The Band, Neil Young and Lynyrd Skynyrd over four nights, Phil and Friends curiously left the stage with Rolling Stones' "Gimme Shelter".  Would it be a bridge to the next set of themes for the Times Square run, starting just a few miles away in two short days?

Indeed it was!  And once again, we had to look no further than the poster to guess how the next several nights will shape up as well.


And there we have it.  There's the birthday cake from the Let It Bleed Cover.  The color scheme and the chessboard pattern from Traffic's Low Spark Of High Heeled Boys.  And who's that reading a newspaper?  It's Layla from Derek & The Dominoes' Layla & Other Assorted Love Songs.

And of course, The Stones found their way into Tuesday's song list as well as the only Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere track unplayed at The Cap, the title track.  Setlists via
