"Most of the Time"

Bob Weir of the Grateful Dead and Furthur played at the Colonial Theatre in Pittsfield, MA. 


“The National made me learn this song. They’re a band I highly recommend,” according to Weir, and he launched into Dylan’s heart-tugging “Most of the Time.” The spell was broken when the sound quit, and the house lights went up, accompanied by blaring fire alarms. Weir acted surprised and directed the audience to the exits. Amounting to an early set break, everyone had to wait outside until the quick-responding Pittsfield Fire Department gave the all-clear. No one seemed upset or overly concerned. It was determined that someone took a smoke break in the hallway and set off the alarms. The venue management was very gracious and implored the audience not to smoke inside. Can’t blame them with a recently completed 21 million dollar theater renovation.
