Jam in the Sand > Spring Tour > Jubilee
Posted on: March 07, 2014
After an epic time in Jamaica’s tropical paradise where the communal vibes peaked and the music and collaborations were over the top. The celebration ended with a smokin’ set by The Bridge, Jeff Mattson and Rob Koritz sitting in with Steel Pulse for “Franklin’s Tower,” where their bass player “ambassador” referred to us as “Jerry’s children,” imagine that, and DSO closed its 1st set with “Stir it Up” with that very same bass player plus the keyboardist from Steel Pulse. Now it’s time to take a breather and then move West! Spring Tour West kicks off March 28-29 in Boulder, CO and hits mountains, deserts and all points in between. We'll spend quality time in the Bay Area with a two-night visit to Terrapin Crossroads and a three-night stand at San Francisco's Great American Music Hall, where we never feel like strangers. Once we roll into Seattle for our close at The Showbox, we'll be that much closer to the Dark Star Jubilee. Tickets for most Spring West shows and beyond are here.

Winter Weather Cancels Covington, KY Show
Posted on: February 05, 2014
We are sorry to announce that tonight’s show (Wednesday, February 5) in Covington, KY is canceled due to snow and ice that has been falling in the Cincinnati area since last night. While we’d love to play for you, with a level 2 snow emergency declared for the area, we’re more concerned with your safety and seeing you our next time through than forcing this one in. Tickets will be refunded at point of purchase. You can check the Tour Page to find out where you can catch DSO on the rest of this tour. Stay safe and warm and we’ll see further down the road!
