If you ever liked The Grateful Dead, and not necessarily in the burned out stoner on the corner sort of way, but even if it was just in a marginal appreciation of musical proficiency from the periphery sort of way; then you 

kinda 

have to like Rat Dog, as well.

Sprouting from a partnership between Bob Weir (the other singer for The Grateful Dead) and bassist Rob 

Wasserman, which dates back to the Regan administration; Rat Dog is a dazzling live show.  Every 

setlist 

is packed with improvisation, solos, Grateful Dead songs, and covers versions of the classics.

Weir is literally classic rock royalty considering his tenure with The Grateful Dead lasted every bit of three decades, he was inducted into the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame, and has literally jammed on-stage with everyone from Bob Dylan to Wilco.  For nothing else show-up tomorrow to bow at his feet.

Tickets are still available, the show is tomorrow March 12th at The Palace Theater (625 S. 4th Street).

About Brent Owen

Born and raised in Louisville, I have lived here most of my life (except during a short furlough, when I, lovelorn and naive, followed a girl to Baton Rouge). My roots are here, my family, my friends, and my life are all here. I work primarily as a free-lance writer for a few local and regional publications. I have also written two books (one a memoir, the other a novel) that barring some divine intervention, will probably never see the light of day. I find myself deeply ingrained in the local bar scene, or perhaps better said, I often indulge in the local drinking culture. I love music, movies, comedy, and really just about any other live performance art.
