We went to see Dead and Company last night at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C. It had been a while since I had seen the Grateful Dead (what is left of them) – since the late 90s. John Mayer is the guest musician, filling the role of lead guitar and vocals. He did a good job. I was thrilled that they played Scarlet Begonias. It was a great show. Here is the set list and some photos.
