Jackie Greene Scares the Children with Weir, Wasserman and Lane

Bob Weir played his third benefit show in less than a week last night in San Francisco. The performance featured Scaring the Children—Weir, Rob Wasserman and Jay Lane—and benefited Casa de Milagros, an organization co-founded by Woody Harrelson that aids orphaned children. The trio played to an intimate crowd of under 100 people, including celebrity guests like Joe Montana, Ronnie Lott and Dwight Clark of ‘80s Super Bowl champs the 49ers.

Scaring the Children’s setlist included the Beatles’ “Blackbird,” Bob Dylan’s “Maggie’s Farm,” Weir/Wasserman’s “Easy Answers,” the new original “Hi Def,” Bob Dylan’s “When I Paint My Masterpiece,” “Friend of the Devil,” “New Speedway Boogie,” “China Cat Sunflower>I Know You Rider,” “Sugaree,” “Loose Lucy,” RatDog’s “Two Djinn,” the Beatles’ “Dear Prudence” and Buddy Holly’s “Not Fade Away.” Jackie Greene also sat in with the group on “New Speedway Boogie,” “China Cat Sunflower>I Know You Rider” and “Sugaree.”

Any idea what the venue was (other than intimate)?

Easy Answers was written by Lowell George, not Weir/Wasserman.

Easy to slip was Lowell George, not Easy Answers.
