It had been a while since we'd seen Ol' Brown Shoe so we spun over to Kitty O'Shea's Irish Pub in Beverley, late on a Friday night. The place is definitely set up like a cozy pub, with lots of little nooks. Might be a nice place to go back to on a lazy night, but that night it was packed and even the American-style wheelchair entrance and deck were full.
Got ensconced up front and the band was set up in one of the nooks, which turned out to be a sound challenge. But they were great anyway, hitting some of their best songs in Wonder's Boogie On Reggae Woman, Gaye's What's Going On, Larry's Prison Walls, the Brothers' Blue Sky, and of course many tunes by the Good Ol' Grateful Dead. Their cover of Shakedown Street is fantastic. AND I was able to answer, "Who wrote that one?" with, "Hank Williams!!!"
Talked to Larry a bit and Mary showed up so had a nice chat with her, between the loud sounds and the enthusiastic crowd. Setlist:
Set 1: Beat it on Down the Line, Funky Biotch, China Cat -> Prison Walls, Boogie on Reggae Woman, You Win Again, Back on the Train, Sugaree
Set 2: Possum, Scarlet Begonias -> Midnight Rider, Shakedown St, Blue Sky, Chalkdust Torture -> What's Goin On
Encore: Tangled Up in Blue
