I thought the show was excellent. Heavy jamming. MK was shredding as was Jeff. The transition from Jackie Green and his band was very cool. I liked the dual drummers on Franklins. There were 4 or 5 other electric moments, as good as it gets. Perhaps in large part because I had the best seats I've had since Jerry died to a Dead related concert, it was a fantastic experience. The Other One in two parts and the same with parts of Terrapin was very cool. Thank you Bobbie and the Dog!

What can I say.. the most impressive post-grateful dead outing I have seen to date. Lots of new and original takes on old favorites and plenty of newer material to keep it interesting The At a Siding/Terrapin Flyer encore was pretty amazing. Ratdog has truly come into its own since I first saw them in the 90's. Great show great venue.. All around good time!!

Great show...loved the transition from Jackie to Ratdog - super smooth and allowed plenty of time for a nice 2 set show...in the past, there have been some abrupt endings with the house lights going on at the wrong moment after some serious jams by the Dog at the Greek...some really great jams and many great moments...new meaning to GDTRFB for me and as always, some life-affirming moments with the lyrics and music...thanks Ratdog for keeping the vibe going! Can't wait for the next show!

This may have been the best post Grateful Dead show I've witnessed. My first shows were in 1970 at the Capitol Theater in Port Chestter NY. I had just gotten back from Nam and my old buddies were running the theater so I watched many shows from behind the amplifiers, including the Feb 71 ESP shows when so many new songs were introduced. Enough of that.
This show at the Greek was just awesome. Terrapin et al, Help on the Way, a smokin Other One like the Feb 71 shows. I particularly liked the arrangements so you knew there was a hole in the soul without Jerry, but not so much that the emptiness dominated, but rather honored his memory and continued presence in the music. Bob has done a great job with this band, keeping the energy flowing, honoring the contribution of those who went before, and moving futher on down the line.
Hats off to Jackie as well. I look forward to seeing him again and witnessing his evolution.
Yup, that's what comes to mind after being at the Greek. Without love in the dream it will never come true.

This show was great. Had a real mellow groove to it. Loved how it went from Jackie straight into RatDog. Loved "Paint my Masterpiece" brought back good memories of my Jerry.The dancing was awesome just not enough room between the seats but still got lots of great dancing in. Good times old friends fun!

Great vibe the whole evening. Lot's of highlights. Loser was well played and sung. Other One was big and rolling and swirling with nice rumbling intro from Robin. The train ride through Terrapin Suite was fun and having Cowboy Neal show up with the bus again fueled a nice jam. There was a big bright moon rising as Bob sang Days Between with much respect and love for Jer and for the journey we've all been on. Then in classic dead fashion didn't let us dwell too long there before they had the whole place smiling again and Goin Down the Road. Sat Night benefited from the gdrfb energy and was fun. Getting to hear the Terrapin finished up in its entirety was some sweet icing on a real good time. Thanks Bobby

agree with milo's post above -not my favorite set-list, but an A+ show! danced from the first strains of FranklinsTower. have been to all the Ratdog greek shows and would like to have seen/heard a little more diversity in the song list. seems like every LA area show is a saturday nite and we always get the 2nd set closer. would love a sugar mag! seems like always get october queen/even so and franklins tower, help/slip. but loved the terrapin and other one. high point for me was GDTRFB. picked this show over the LA Forum due to ticket price and location. did not disappoint! will go again, and again!
Unreal show... the crowd was into it from the get go. Thank you Bobby for the incredible night!

A great show indeed. Just want to give special props to Kenny, who played like a god all night, and Jay, ditto, and his drum solos were off the charts. Overall theme of the show was intense - lots of tales of hard times, loss, people facing tough choices or the consequences of making the wrong ones. Even the pick-up song leading into the final blow-out was GDTRFB! But all played so well it was like dancing through the danger with a heart on fire. I just love these guys!!
Great Show. The best Ratdog show to-date for me. Excelletn set-list, Bobby being Bobby. All of the band members were on. This was real. Every second was steller. Let's do it again. All the appreciation and love to the Bands, crew, and crowd. And thank you... for a real good time. Let's do it again.

Thank You, and You, and You and on and on...
Beeautiful Night of Tears and Cheers. The show had so many roads, all leading to the best Dream anyone could imagine. Everyone played extremely well. And Bobby. It is so good to see you healthy and smiling.
"I guess he didn't want to talk about that..." no Bob, just a brain fart...Unbelievable to think that we have been "allowed" to expand our knowledge and Love so sweetly. THANK YOU! FURTHER--->
