RatDog to Reunite at TRI Studios

Bob Weir will reunite RatDog for a performance at his TRI Studios on January 25. A free broadcast of the performance will be available through TRI’s website at 8 PM ET. RatDog has not performed since January of 2010, though most of the group backed Weir during his set with the Marin Symphony earlier this year. In a recent Relix cover story, Weir mentioned his desire to bring past and present members of RatDog together for a revue-style performance at TRI Studios.

“One of the shows I want to do [in the studio] is RatDog,” Weir explained. “I want to get all or at least most of the guys who are still alive who played with RatDog and do a retrospective. In doing so, we’ll probably make a DVD and a record. I’ve got unfinished business with that outfit.”

Weir will also continue to tour with Furthur and perform as a solo act in 2012.

I’d always go to see RatDog when they came to Chicago since it was Grateful Dead music being played live (I just can’t pass that up, no matter who it is.) that being said, what a slow, meandering band. I always felt like falling asleep, even when I was riding the rail. If Bobby got a gig singing lounge hits in Vegas, it would sound like RatDog, that being said I’ll be there if they hit the Chi again
