Getting ready to goto Darrien Lakes for Ratdog and Allmans today and got my Phil and friends tix yesterday what a weekend
Man...I gotta say, the show at the Tweeter Center in Camden NJ last night was AWESOME as hell!!!! I danced my ass off the entire time!!! When the storm started, I was hoping they'd break out with a jammin' version of "The Wheel"....but the selections played last night were right on time...Women R Smarter, Althea, China Cat Sunflower>I Know You Rider, Quinn the Eskimo, Me & My Uncle, Ripple and more.
Gratefulmom.....was Derek Trucks with the Allmans HOT or WHAT??? I was totally amazed at his skills....and the Allman's 'drums' was pretty damn hot as well. I totally NEEDED this show!!!
...and damn glad i wasn't out on the lawn during the thunderstorm!
the 'dog kicked ass, took no prisoners. i love how Kimock has slid in effortlessly, and not "replaced" Mark per se, but put his signature stamp on the groove. they're a bit edgier...
didn't keep a setlist for highlights for me were the opening seque of Women are Smarter into Good Morning Little Schoolgirl; the Come Together with Keller; the China>Rider with Derek. and "finishing" the Help/Slip by guesting w/ the Bros for Franklin's was totally hot.
and then I even got a Liz Reed. sweet.
for me, these guys are the best of what's left of the scene. I get flamed for it constantly ( IRL *and* on the Well, so really, you can save it.) but I have to say it again that imho -- while Phil has been out making Friends, Bob has put together a fucking tight, amazing band. gimme my 'dog any day.
(plotting here, at noon, how I can find somebody to drive up to the Poconos with me...)
This was an amzing show!! Ratdog rocked! The sky was full of lightning, than the skies opened up and the rain fell. Bobby played with Allman Brothers it was sweet!! Franklin's Tower and Ripple were awesome !! Way to go BOBBY!!!! Another great time!!
Aud, my friend, I hope it is a most excellent show for you!
it's been almost a month since the 'dog last did a Weather Report Suite.
Tonight would be a good time!
streaming from the LMA and ready for Camden tonight. Kinda bummed it'll be my only show, I could use a few!
What a great show. I was right up on the rail and the sound was great. One of my highlights of the show was watching these 2 older heads dance on the rail. Im pretty sure they were brothers. 2 short balding dudes. thanx for the good laughs and thanx for the good music.
Anyone see the band do "Anthem" (National ;) at Fenway 8/14?
What a great show...hot as hell but worth it. Talked to a taper at the show about trading some discs but haven't heard from him. Anyone have a copy they would like to trade?
once in a while you can get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right
