Phil Lesh & Friends Recreate Classic Dead Show From 1987 At Terrapin Crossroads [Full Video]

first_imgPhil Lesh and his ever-evolving cast of bandmates took the stage inside the Grate Room at his Terrapin Crossroads venue last night to recreate one of the Grateful Dead‘s classic shows. The performance on Wednesday at Lesh’s family-friendly venue was a full-set recreation of his former band’s 1987 concert originally held at Long Beach Arena in Long Beach, California on the same date, November 14th.Wednesday’s concert was the first of three “On This Day In Dead History” shows that Lesh has planned for this week, with the next two scheduled for Friday, November 16th, and Sunday, November 18th. Lesh was joined on Wednesday by Anders Osborne and Stu Allen on guitar, Steve Molitz on keys, and Nathan Graham holding down the rhythm section. Thankfully, by the power of Nugs.net, the entire show was streamed live from the San Rafael venue for Deadheads around the country to turn on, tune in and enjoy.Phil Lesh & Friends – Terrapin Crossroads – 11/14/18[Video: Nugs.net]The show begins right at the video’s 10:41 mark with that infamous, bold D-minor chord of “Shakedown Street” powering its way through the speakers. The lengthy opening jam provided the lineup with an immediate opportunity to stretch their group-mind abilities and take the title track from their 1978 Shakedown Street LP for a walk through the woods, just as the Dead used to do it. The first set continued after some solid jamming with “Little Red Rooster”, “Althea” and a cover of Bob Dylan‘s “When I Paint My Masterpiece”. The set would come to a close with the band playing through a fun version of The Meters‘ “Hey Pocky A-Way” followed by the always lively “Deal”, with Stu Allen leading the way on vocals for the dance-friendly song. To make for an even better free show stream experience, fans were encouraged to stick around at setbreak to tune into a performance from Colonel & The Mermaids.Set two started out hot with the galloping rhythm of “Maggie’s Farm” before the band quickly transitioned into “Cumberland Blues”. The second set was then off and running with an extended “Playing In The Band” > “Terrapin Station” segment, the latter featuring Phil trading off vocal duties with Allen. “Drums” > “Space” followed, as was customary by the Dead’s nightly setlists at that point in their career. The band continued with a stretch of Dead favorites (“I Need A Miracle” > “Stella Blues” > “Throwing Stones”) before ending with Bobby “Blue” Bland classic “Turn On Your Love Light”, best known to Deadheads as a quintessential Ron “Pigpen” McKernan live tune. Phil and company returned to the stage (following his organ donor rap) to close out the night with their cover of Bob Dylan’s “Quinn the Eskimo (The Mighty Quinn)”.Below, fans can also tune into the original audio from the Dead’s 1987 Long Beach performance below to hear to how well Phil and his new band did at revisiting the old show.Grateful Dead – 11/14/87 – Full Audio[Audio: Uploaded by Johnathan Aizen]Fans hoping to attend the next “On This Day In Dead History” show on Friday can click here for tickets.

Drying up fast: less than 20 Gold Coast houses listed for $400k on Realestate.com.au

first_img2218 Springbrook Rd, Springbrook.“There is a new estate at Maudsland called Huntington Rise that hasn’t even been developed yet but we are selling even before the trees have been cleared,” she said. “There are 55 blocks but we already have 40 buyers.” In Pimpama a 26-block estate, Town Centre North, has five blocks left two weeks after launching to the market. “Most of these buyers are renting two streets away and see more value in buying a property rather than spending money on rent and they know houses won’t be cheap forever with the amount of land left.” 70 Flora Terrace at Pimpama is one of the cheapest buys on the Gold CoastBLINK and the $400,000 house price on the Gold Coast could be as extinct as the Dodo bird or the Tasmanian tiger.Less than 20 houses are listed for that price on realestate.com.au and property experts say it will be dead within three years.Across the nation 31 per cent of houses and 37 per cent of units sold for less than $400,000 in the year to June 2017. 14 Oakdale Ave, Nerang.Ten years ago, 62 per cent of all house sales and 68 per cent of unit sales were below $400,000. CoreLogic data shows the average number of houses on the Gold Coast market two years ago with a price tag between $300,000-$499,999 was 1273 compared to an average of 911 houses now.The average price for a house on the Gold Coast is now $620,000.First-home buyer specialist Sarah Zawadzki, from Collins House Property Group, said she had 1000 people on her books wanting to enter the market. “This week I have had a 21-year-old and a 22-year-old each searching for a home in the $400,000 price bracket,” Ms Zawadzki said.“We have more buyers than we have properties and Pimpama has some of the most affordable properties on the Gold Coast. 38 Ee-jung Rd, Springbrook.“In the next three years I don’t think Gold Coast buyers will see a house for that price anywhere but that is expected when you have a city that is growing and moving in the right direction. “It is a matter of fact that when the population grows so does everything else, including house prices, it does put pressure on the property market.” Mr Newlands said the fade out of the $400,000 price tag was due to the lack of land available.

Mr Kushler said while houses in regional towns were not as endangered, the Gold Coast was facing the same increase as big cities. “There are far fewer properties selling below $400,000 in capital cities than there are in regional areas of the country,” Mr Kushler said.center_img 43 Tooraneedin Rd, Coomera.Ms Zawadzki said the most in-demand suburbs were Oxenford and Maudsland, with up to 10 home buyers inquiring per property.“The demand for new house and land packages is overwhelming,” Ms Zawadzki said.“It started to pick up towards the end of April and now I am getting so many calls and emails from first-home buyers wanting to get into the market that it is taking days to respond.”REIQ Gold Coast zone chairman John Newlands said: “The whole coastal strip is going to be well over the $400,000 price range before we know it but there are still plenty of opportunities to live centrally in townhouses and units for that price. 43 Tooraneedin Rd, Coomera.“The Federal Government attempted to address housing affordability in the Budget this year. It is clear that in order to improve housing affordability there is much more work to be done on both supply and demand drivers of the market.“A greater supply of stock which could potentially reduce prices would at the very least be a good start but the supply needs to be supported by sufficient infrastructure and employment opportunities.”Ray White Surfers Paradise Group CEO Andrew Bell said the shortage of properties on the Gold Coast was due to a strong sales activity.“You can see how the Coast is transforming. “As always the growth in the market started in this lower price bracket and this ultimately fed through to those in higher price brackets. This shortage of lower-end product has driven prices higher across the board. 14 Oakdale Ave, Nerang.
