Bob Weir & RatDog Debut "My Brother Esau" During Warm Up Show
Bob Weir and RatDog took the stage for a warm-up show at the Sweetwater Music Hall in Mill Valley, CA last night. The group—Steve Kimock, Robin Sylvester, Jay Lane, Jeff Chimenti and Rob Wasserman—debuted their take on the Weir/John Perry Barlow-penned tune “My Brother Esau” during a two-set show that also featured originals like “Bury Me Standing,” “Money for Gasoline” and “Ashes and Glass,” as well as a few covers and a number of Grateful Dead classics. As previously reported, the members of The National convinced Weir to pull out “My Brother Essau” for the first time in decades during The Bridge Sessions in 2012.
