Dead & Company Subtly Addresses Politicians With “Throwing Stones” In Washington D.C. [Videos]

first_imgWhile the first set did not exhibit much of jamming across songs, the second set showcased the band’s penchant for jammed-out transitions, offering up a segued combo of “Help On The Way”, “Slipknot!”, and “Franklin’s Tower”. Ahead of the triumphant “Terrapin Station” before the electronic-infused “Drums” and “Space” portion of second set, Weir led the band on “Looks Like Rain”. To close out the second set, the band offered up a slow and steady “Days Between” before the set-closing politically charged “Throwing Stones”—an appropriate number for the show’s location at the nation’s capital given the lyrics that heavily reference politicians. To end things on a high, the band closed out the evening with an encore of their most traditionally “famous” number, “Touch Of Grey”.“Help On The Way” Ahead of Thanksgiving, Dead & Company hit the Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C., before the group continues to Hartford, Connecticut’s XL Center tonight and Detroit’s Little Caesar’s Arena on Friday.
