What You'll Get
Music achieves its full emotional effect only when performed live, just as great literature becomes comprehensible only when screamed aloud in a crowded subway train. Enjoy public performance with today’s deal: for $18, you get one general-admission ticket to see Dark Star Orchestra at Fillmore Auditorium on Saturday, October 8, at 8 p.m. (up to a $35 value online, including all ticketing fees). Doors open at 7:30 p.m.
Dark Star Orchestra faithfully recreates classic Grateful Dead concerts, drawing on a catalog of historic set lists. Band members focus on Dead-mimicking accuracy, imitating original onstage positions, instrument sound, and singing style to better channel original performances and confuse time-traveling music lovers. Calling on its ability to effortlessly channel any portion of the Grateful Dead’s 30-year career, Dark Star Orchestra delivers memorable concerts, encouraging even longtime fans to bask in the aural delight. Originally a skating rink, Fillmore Auditorium offers concertgoers a vast open space in which to mingle, dance, and organize impromptu games of Red Rover.

About Fillmore Auditorium
The Fillmore Auditorium—founded in 1907 as the Mammoth Roller Rink and renovated in 1999 to evoke the famous Fillmore in San Francisco—has hosted numerous stars and dignitaries on its stage. Although everyone from Marilyn Manson to James Blunt has packed the concert schedule, the space remains an especially popular site for jam bands; Phish mastermind Trey Anastasio christened the revamped venue in 1999 by performing a marathon set.
