Ratdog Tour Kick-Off

Bob Weir and his scrappy Ratdog clan kicked of a short Northeast tour last night at the Tower Theater in Upper Darby, PA. The tour consists of  a Friday/Saturday 2 night stand at the Tower, Monday and Tuesday at the Grand Ballroom in NYC, and a 3-night run next weekend at the newly renovated Beacon Theater in NYC.

Happy B-Day Bobby!

Happy B-Day Bobby!

Last night was a special night for the band as it was Bobby’s 62nd birhtday. The song selection was classic Bobby – Help/Slip opener, 3 Dylan tunes, Ripple closer, and a nice Blackbrid, Masters of War, Masterpiece acoustic mini-set. Hopefully the band will really bring it this tour, look for a first hand review of next Saturday’s tour closer at the Beacon.
