Friday, March 28: Dark Star Orchestra. 9 p.m. Boulder Theater, 2032 14th St., Boulder, 303-786-7030.
It’s a sense of familiarity that brings the crowd alive with Dark Star Orchestra. A band whose sole purpose is to try to recreate what a Grateful Dead concert used to be like, including everything from their set list to the way they perform live. With 15 years of performing, the band gets closer to channeling the Grateful Dead every time they play.
