RatDog Bring the Bob Dylan to Buffalo

Bob Weir and RatDog played a Bob Dylan cover-heavy set last night at Shea’s Performing Arts Center in Buffalo, NY. The first set featured takes on Dylan’s “All Along The Watchtower” and “Maggie’s Farm,” as well as a Merle Haggard’s Mama Tried.”

The second set kicked off with a rendition of Dylan’s “Desolation Row” before the band busted out their second-ever version of the traditional “On The Road Again” (the tune, popularized by Dylan, was last played by RatDog in August of 2007). In honor of Mardi Gras, the show also included a cover of James “Sugar Boy” Crawford’s New Orleans classic “Iko Iko,” which was followed by Dylan’s “Knocking on Heaven’s Door.”

Bob Weir and RatDog will return to the stage tonight at the Fillmore Detroit.

Assuming you hated Jerry too. He was a lyric flubber.

Well, guess what DJ? He’s Bob Weir, and you’re not. It’s so trendy and cool to bash Bobby these days. You’re very original. Fuck off, you jaded twat.

Never saw Ratdog before this tour but surprised how GD heavy (including covers) his set lists are. Really think he wanted Furthur to continue but couldn’t convince Phil to tour enough after Pete S threw all that money at him and the kids.

DJ, why do you dislike Bob Weir so much anyway?. If not a fan ok, no need to keep posting crude comments.

No flow, bad show, real scrunchy sound,to many jerry sang tunes, spotlight on Bob all night, Let Kimock shine,stop singing touch. Trucking was brutally slow aiko was ok except went into knocking really strange choice to have the energy and then bring it down that much and then go into gdtrfb, not like a dead show were you have the drums/space to ease you in. I liked the first set better.I would bring Kenny Brooks back no need for two bass players the lady next to me didn’t even know wasserman was there. I saw furthur in Cooperstown this summer and loved it and thought Bobby played awesome also caught ratdog at the palace in 2008? With Kimock And it was one of the best post jer shows I’ve witnessed.
