Dark Star Orchestra

Nov. 5 Dark Star Orchestra Slowdown, 729 N. 14th St. 9 p.m., $25, radkadillac.com Dark Star Orchestra is not so much a tribute band as an almost scientifically recreated live music experience. Drawing on specific Grateful Dead setlists or just mixing up Dead originals and songs the Dead covered to create a unique evening of trippy dance tunes; DSO has made a name for itself delighting Deadheads coast to coast with its faithful performances. And while there is still a small chance you’ll be able to score a veggie burrito in the parking lot, these shows are more about the music than the parking lot culture and are sure to spark memories for older Heads, and show younger kids the magic The Dead could create.
