Dark Star Orchestra

by The Staff on November 13, 2013

Palace Theatre, Saturday


Deadheads will tell you that the Grateful Dead are less a band and more a way of life. While most of the original members are still living and touring, the band’s extensive catalog has become a living, breathing songbook of its own. Dead cover bands are a dime a dozen but the Dark Star Orchestra have long been the standard bearers for that songbook’s legacy, faithfully recreating full shows from Dead history without becoming one of those ersatz look-alike tribute acts. Stick around downtown Albany for plenty of Dead-related afterparties following DSO. (Nov. 16, 7:30 PM, $33.50, 19 Clinton Ave., Albany, 465-3334)
