Only A River
Lay My Lily Down
A refreshing night of mostly original music, created by three singer songwriters, supported by a groovy smooth rhythm section, Kaufman on bass and Russo on drums.
Of course many were there because of Bob Weir’s announced sit in, which was solid fun and worth the ticket price… But the performance of these musicians was worthy of its own, so the entire evening was extremely enjoyable, with the bonus of Bob!
Eric D Johnson ericdjohnsonmusic.comwhile I was not familiar with his songs, clearly many in the room were. Very clear voice with rhythm and tone, thoughtful lyrics. Guitars and vocals.
Sam Cohen samcohenmusicmy big wow of the night was Sam Cohen! His guitar playing grabbed me, slinky soulful, and psychedelicly noisy when it needed it. He really lit the Bird Song with Weir! Great vocals and songs too. There’s a War was a particular stand out.
Kevin Morby kevinmorby.comkeyboards, banjo, guitars, vocals. Super energy at the keys, and a sweet voice with a lot of range and different feels.
Joe Russo joeyjoeyrussojoerussosalmostdead.comof course we all know Joe Russo from Furthur, JRAD, Benevento-Russo Duo, Shpongle, Phil Lesh and Friends, and dozens of others. As always, Joey was on the beat like no other, with smooth precision. His performance was perfectly understated and supportive of the variety of songs heard. Drums backing vocals.
Josh Kaufman Josh_Kaufman_(musician)what a groovy player Josh is, his bass playing held it all together for each different song style. This guy has fun at work.
Bob Weir bobweir.net it’s good to see Bob! His playing and vocals were great, focused and sharp.
While the band had struggled a little bit with the infamous chatter noise reverberating from the Sweetwater back bar, and Eric Johnson even politely said “S. T. F. U.”, when Bob Weir came out he joked that “it wasn’t a solo acoustic performance, so yack it up” ~ at which point the crowd laughs and then goes almost silent! Hilarious sequel to Bob’s famous STFU.
This line up, sans Weir, will have 2 more shows, and you won’t be disappointed!

Lyrics: Bob Weir and Andre Pessis
Music: Bob Weir and others from Ratdog
One of the new Ratdog songs, introduced mid-1999 and now included on the Ratdog CD.
What if all tomorow brings is ashes and glass
And I can’t tell you child, “this too shall pass”
If all the world were windswept, cold and gray (note 1)
And in the end there’s nothing left to say
If all the silicon and best laid plans (note 2)
Became the master, and the fall of man
If all the earth were baked to hard red clay
Not so far from where we are today
Ah well anyway
Come on darlin’, swing and sway
Daddy gonna find us a better way
And if that better way don’t float
Daddy gonna find us a tighter boat
And if that tighter boat don’t sail
Grab a bucket babe, and start to bail
And if that bucket spring a leak
Little miss, we’re up the creek
What if fire came raining on the hills
And mountains made of rusting Coupe De Villes
And all God’s children find themselves alone (note 3)
And all the poets took to throwing stones
Guess we’re on our own
No way out and no way home
Come on baby, it’s time to sing
Daddy gonna grab that old brass ring
And if that old brass ring don’t fit
Daddy gonna get to fixin it
And if that old brass ring stays broke
Daddy gonna buy you a billy goat
And if that billy goat don’t bark
Gonna give that goat the old kick start
Old kick start
What if all that was left was ashes and glass
And I can’t tell you child, “this too shall pass” (note 4)
And if those four horsemen can’t be turned away
And everyone’s too paralyzed to pray
Too paralyzed to pray
And the jury’s out on judgement day
And there ain’t nothing left to say
Nothing left to say
Come on baby we can fly
Daddy’s got a stack of alibis
Alibis shot full of holes
Come on child, let’s rock and roll
And if that roll takes us to France
Teach them Froggies how to dance
Keep on dancin’, sing the tune
We’ll be dancin’ all around the moon
And if that big old moon go bust
Well ashes to ashes, baby, dust to dust
Baby it’s time for one last rave
Keep on dancin’ on our own graves
On our own graves
Keep on dancing
On our own graves
Keep on dancing
Keep on dancing
