Venue; Sweetwater Music Hall, Mill Valley CA
2020 is the year of the Rat in the Chinese calendar. Last night could have been called, the show of the Ratdog.
It was just a spectacular day in the Bay yesterday, so nice to see the sun. Had several business meetings but was able to catch a very nice lunch in Sausalito with my daughter prior to heading into the city for the afternoon. Great spot, highly recommend Barrel House Tavern for the food plus a view.
Finished up all of the business affairs and it was time to have a hearty meal pre show. Choose Sushi Ran in Sausalito. If you like sushi, as I do, “Ran do not walk to” Sushi Ran. Yellowtail toro……yum
Show went off like the night before, a little after 8 the band hit the stage with a rocking Iko Iko to open. The first set featured a couple of obscure Ratdog songs, Even So and October Queen to set the mood. Let it Grow closed the set and a good time was had by one and all. During the set break got to spend time with “Big Steve” Parish reminiscing about our mutual friend Mike “Fitzy” Fitzgerald. I promised Steve that I would call into his show on Sirius XM and recall our fallen comrade.
The second set opened with a Little Feat cover of Easy to Slip and featured a Dark Star and a Dark Star (reprise) as part of the encore. We were really quite close night two as this shot witnesses.
All and all a fun run in Mill Valley with Bob Weir and the Wolf Brothers.
