More Solo Bob Weir

Last night, Bob Weir performed an acoustic set at San Rafael, CA’s Rafael Theatre. The solo acoustic performance took place after a screening for the movie The Cove, winner of 2010 Academy Award for Best Documentary. The performance was part of a benefit for Save Japan Dolphins, a non-profit project sponsored by the Earth Island Institute with the goal of promoting eco-tourism as an alternative to killing whales and dolphins. After the screening, Weir ran through solo acoustic versions of “The Music Never Stopped,” “When I Paint My Masterpiece,” “Lost Sailor,” “Saint Of Circumstance,” “Loose Lucy,” “Corrina” and “Ripple.” Furthur will kick off a summer tour at Masontown, WV’s All Good Music & Camping Festival on July 15.

I really wanted him to say something funny to kill that vibe. LAME.

Weir sat in on the panel stating his support for Earth Island Institute and “save Japan Dolphins”. The man continues to make himself available in support of causes for the benefit of the planet and the human race. So admirable. Weir’s solo performance was excellent. He sat on a stool, bare feet, and played for about 50 minutes, great guitar and vocals. This was a wonderful evening.

1. Bob Weir has an excellent web site.
2. You can watch parts of the documentary, ‘The Cove’ for free. Just Google: savejapandolphins.org. Many excellent videos! PLEASE SIGN THEIR PETITIONS GOING TO PRESIDENT OBAMA AND THE PM OF JAPAN TO STOP THE HUNTING OF DOLPHINS (& WHALES)
3. You can learn all about ‘The Cove’ on Wikipedia.
4. Please learn all you can at similar web sites for Sea Shepherd; Oceana.org; PETA.ORG; read up on the latest at Greenpeace – adreneline pumping news!
5. Every Monday, join Paul McCartney on his web site for recipes: “Meatless Monday.” It has its own web site for recipes. Linda promoted vegetarian ‘fast food’ dinners, sold in UK grocery stores…still a best seller.
