As some of you may already know, during the RatDog set, the actions of some maniac at the Gathering on Saturday night resulted in a Bridgeport, Ct., police officer being injured...The following is a mailing address, as well as eMail for you to send some healing Vibes to that man who was just trying to do his job:

Ratdog with the Allman Brothers at the Tweeter in Camden NJ on 8/17.
It should be a awesome show!! I haven't seen Ratdog since last year in Atlantic city NJ,
They play together often here in the Bay Area. They did a cool Kashmir last year at the Bluegrass festival.
This is so cool. Have a great time. There is a forum here - Other Literature where some of us have discussed the beats and their influence.
Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,
(I am large, I contain multitudes.)

mvyradio.com will broadcast this Sunday's Bob Weir & Ratdog "Special Tribute to Jack Kerouac" show from Lowell, Massachusetts as part of its "On the Road" series. The program will begin with Weir reading from Kerouac's works, scheduled for a 6pm start with the Weir/Ratdog musical performance afterward. Links to the stream will be available on the home page of www.mvyradio.com.
This show will be a special tribute to Lowell native Jack Kerouac, and his traveling companion On The Road, Neal Cassady, who had a great personal influence on the members of the Grateful Dead. Kerouac's original manuscript scroll of his most famous novel, On The Road, is on display at the Boott Cotton Mills Museum Gallery adjacent to the concert venue, Boarding House Park. Weir read On The Road in 1964 and became forever changed. "It told me the world was a wide open place. Go get it," said Weir in a November 2006 interview with the Lowell Sun.

Just came back from Iraq for the 3rd time and the show is in Lowel Mass. How sweet im home on leave from the Marines got me 3 tickets looking Fwd to the show. The last time i went to a show was last year before i left in VA. What a homecoming thanxs bob!
Spell Check for sure next time I post. One would think that if I had any idea at all what I was talking about, that I would at least get the name right. (DER)
After being out of the loop for so long, ( the last show I saw ,i think, was just after JERRY had come out of a coma and played in Virginia), I could not imagine a more intriguing venue to attend . I can't wait for the disscussions on Kerou's influence. I hope they have a question answer forum with the audience.
That Sandy Eggo show was awesomely great.... first Dog show for me in a long while....well worth the wait. Wake up Lil Suzy with Keller was definately a treat. I liked the whole show but I was looking for Izzie to bolt to the restroom when the opening notes of Black Peter started...LOL
