DSO #2000 On Demand

Posted on: January 31, 2012

With memories of 2011 still swirling in our heads, we can still listen to the music play via DSO On Demand. Our fresh-out-of-the-oven releases are highlighted by way too many face melting moments to count, but special notice goes the November night in Ithaca (11/19/11) our six guys and a girl celebrated DSO's 2,000th show in original style. Or feel the energy of 30,000 fans in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park come back to the stage as DSO celebrates Hardly Strictly Bluegrass with a recreation of the historic 9/28/75 show originally performed on almost the very same spot! There are also shows from the Thanksgiving Garden Party Weekend and eras to fit every taste, from the '60s to the '90s with a generous dose of original setlists. You'll find them all here. What else would you listen to while you head out on Southbound Winter Tour?

Spring Tour Heads East

Posted on: January 26, 2012

As spring winds down and turns into summer, we’ll be taking the DSO bus on SPRING TOUR EAST, starting with two nights at the Higher Ground in Burlington, VT, and truckin’ on through the beginning of June. In between, the circus comes to town in New Haven, Princeton, Englewood, Brooklyn, Boston and Alexandria, makes a stop Paramount Theater in Huntingdon, NY and sets up camp for three days at the Mighty High Mountain Fest at Tuxedo Ridge, including one acoustic set. For all the dates and ticket info, go to DSOtix.

DSO Southbound

Posted on: January 17, 2012

While DSO’s musical seeds may be silent for the month of January, come February 1 they’ll burst into bloom as the Dark Star Orchestra bus rolls into Minneapolis for the first show of the Southbound Winter Tour 2012! This ambitious five-week run takes our six guys and a girl on a 25-show trek making stops in Chicago (two shows, including a special Terrapin Nation show at Martyr’s), Detroit, Cleveland and Nashville, and winding up in Ft. Lauderdale in the beginning of March. After that it’s off to Europe for Jam In The Dam and one show London. Check out all the dates on the Tour Dates Page

DSO Seeks Merchandiser

Posted on: January 10, 2012

While Dark Star Orchestra anxiously awaits the February Southbound Winter Tour, it will also sadly mark the last run for DSO Merchandiser Extraordinaire, Ellie. She is the smiling face that has helped you pick out the just-exactly-perfect t-shirt or hoodie for the last year, and while we're excited for her that she's going to spend more time with her family, we're most sorry to see her go. If you have some merchandising experience, a solid work ethic, a great attitude and are willing to do whatever it takes to make it happen every day on the road, send your inquiries and resumes to Jack Barton (jack@walther-productions.com).

Cosmic Energy Kicks Off 2012

Posted on: January 03, 2012

DSO closed out 2011 and kicked off the New Year with its annual Cosmic New Years run, a series of four shows that blew the roofs off of three venues packed with near capacity crowds.

Pulling into Montclair, NJ and the Wellmont Theatre for the last two days of the year, the band followed 12/30’s acoustic/electric/electric elective with a New Year’s Eve show that reached across GD eras, with the first set coming from the ‘60s (Vallejo, CA 2/21/69) and the second from the ‘70s (Santa Barbara, 6/4/78, Set 1), finally ringing in 2012 with the second set from 7/18/89’s Alpine Valley show. With too many highlights to mention, one that merits citing is DSO taking a minute to ring in the New Year between songs, launching 2012 with a smokin’ ‘80s-style “Eyes Of The World” that still has the audience spinning.

As the six guys and a girl take a month to patch their bones, rest assured everyone in Dark Star Orchestra wishes every fan who makes the tours possible a happy and prosperous 2012, and they can’t wait to see you all back on the road!

Spring Tour West Announced, Cosmic New Year's Eve Approaching

Posted on: December 18, 2011

We're thrilled to announce our SPRING TOUR WEST - a brief two-week swing through some of our favorite western states - once we return from shows at the Jam in the Dam Festival & in London. The Spring Tour West looks like one epic segue of a fantastic show:

Seattle x 2 > Portland > Eugene > Arcata > San Francisco x 3 > Petaluma > Santa Cruz > Solana Beach > Agoura Hills > Phoenix

Lots of excitement is building for our final shows of 2011 at Cosmic New Year's Eve: two nights at the Wellmont Theatre in Montclair, NJ. We'll be performing three sets each night and on NYE, taking on a set from each decade of the 60s, 70s and 80s. We hope you can make it!
