DSO late fall East Coast Tour Announced

Posted on: August 27, 2009

After some mountain air and pacific sun on the Rex Caravan Tour the band will take a few weeks off before returning to East Coast for an extensive tour. We are excited to revisit some of our favorite east coast haunts this fall. Check out DSO at the tour kick-off at the Palace Theatre in Albany, feel the brotherly love in Philly, celebrate DSO's 12th Anniversary in Hagerstown, wave that flag in DC, return to the scene of the crime in Ithaca or hit the big apple for two nights at the Nokia Theatre. The bus will be laying rubber all over the east coast and we hope you can come along for the ride!

Announcing Rex Caravan Tour & Black Tie Dye Ball in Portland 9/25

Posted on: July 29, 2009

This fall DSO will hit the road on another Rex Caravan Tour where $1 for very ticket sold will be donated to The Rex Foundation that was created by the Grateful Dead in 1984 as an outlet for their charitable donations. The tour begins in the Great Northwest with a show in Seattle before a two night stand in Portland, OR.

The 8th Black Tie-Dye Ball will be held Friday, September 25 in Portland, OR at the Crystal Ballroom. Proceeds help support local area non - profit programs. The September 25th Black Tie - Dye Ball also helps celebrate the 3rd month - long DSO Rex Caravan Tour, where every show along the way includes $1 per ticket as a contribution to the Rex Foundation.

The Rex Foundation presented the first Black Tie - Dye Ball in Chicago in March 2004 with Dark Star Orchestra. Since then, there have been Black Tie - Dye Balls in New York City, Washington, D.C., Denver, Colorado, Los Angeles and San Francisco. These festive occasions provide the opportunity to collaborate with gifted performers that care about the Rex Foundation.
