Grateful Dead tribute Dark Star Orchestra has collected a road record rivaling that of its hero, performing thousands of shows in the decade-plus. This Saturday, the seven-piece will make a stop at The Pageant (6161 Delmar Boulevard, 314-726-6161). The show starts at 8 p.m. -- St. Louis' Stone Sugar Shakedown will perform in the Halo Bar immediately afterward.

DSO has survived on a deep knowledge of the Dead's catalogue and a penchant for just enough improvisation to keep the spirit of the thing alive. We'd like to send you to tomorrow's show. To win: Tell us in the comments below what Dead song you most hope DSO plays tomorrow night. We'll randomly select a winner at 3 p.m.

Important: To win you must be able to come to our office in the Loop, or send someone in your stead, by 5:30 p.m. today!
