setlist sucked. no energy at all from band. jeff looked bored. only one bathroom open, and it was a small one, and it was on the third floor. i was so disappointed at song choices and tempo, that i left before end of first set, and from setlist for 2nd set, im glad i did. after 40 grateful dead yrs, no more ratdog. go phil.

Great time with a slower pace for Rat Dog. The tempo was right "weir" it should have been. Well worth the trip to hear Easow
A wonderfull relaxing evening. You should have been there!! Need more bathrooms.

My first show of the tour but I have seen ratdog many times. I do not agree with Jason from Cambridge .. I thought the show had a lot of energy and the band was tight. Song selection for me was excellent. If u want to go see Phil go see Phil . Stop hating on ratdog. I'm so Pyched for a winter tour ! My brother Esau .. Easy to slip> supplication killed it ! Looking foward to the Capitol in port Chester Saturday . ~peace (~):}

I thought last nights show had it's ups and downs!

Enjoyed the Easy to Slip>Lazy Lighting/Supplication>Mission in the Rain sequence in the 1st set, and if you know going in that Bobby is going to have a somewhat 'slow' tempo to his renditions I think for the most part it's what you should expect.

Thought the intermission was WAYYYYYY to long, and would have liked to see a little more up tempo 2nd set opener then KC Moan but enjoyed Rob during Fever and nice to see Gordon join the band for a nice Bird Song!! China>Rider was pretty basic and it was a surprise to see Bob break out Death Don't Have No Mercy for the first time this tour.

Always nice to see Kimock and get his twist on some of the GD standards and overall not a bad way to spend a chilly Monday night in Boston!!

To all going to Tue. nights show have a good time and I think it's time for Bobby to break out a Mr. Charlie!!

Loved the show. Been catching Rat Dog for years, it's been a while as Furthur has been touring. I knew the temp going in was going to be slow. I felt the level of playing was excellent, melodic and beautiful. This is an evolving and changing Rat Dog. I sensed less a GD feel and more the unique playing of this band. What Bobby and the boys are doing could be called the Marin County Groove. Why? Because them, Phil and a bunch of other musicians have been laying down post-GD sophisticated improve music and jam. Bobby and Rat Dog have come out in 2014 bringing this style to the East Coast. I wenjoy the ride and will miss it when it's gone. Peace!

This show sounds great!!! Not sure what Gordon was listening to but this show seems a little faster than most I have listened to this tour. Sounds like the boys are starting to hit there groove. Two Djinn was really good and love the transitions, they seem pretty fluid at this point. I love Rat Dog and the take this band has on the classics as well as the exploration of new songs. GREAT JOB BOBBY & THE GANG. Going to catch the show in Detroit.......CAN'T WAIT!!!!! 6 more days between.

First of all to those with the negative feedback like GORDON - You should be GRATEFUL that the boys are healthy and still playing . These guys work hard playing for us - summer tours and fall tours . They are human too , they have good and bad nights . Gordon you should be embarrassed for yourself and not a true fan of the music - glad that you left, no one wants your negative vibes there anyway. As for as Bobby and the boys - thanks for your hard work and dedication ! Ill keep on hitting all your shows as long as your still playing!!!!

been almost 5 years coming... everybody was dancing having a grand time from weir I stood. place was packed, Band was outtah site.. they laid down a splendid show. They must of felt the vibe from the Green Monster stage left. Bottom of 9th score tied Bobby steps up to center stage and belts one stage left of Pesky Pole and a Home Run is awarded to RATDOG .... GAME OVER

Don't know where Gordon was hangin' it but i used 2 bathrooms on the 1st floor with no problems ! Hmmmmm....Anywho, thought it was a "grate" show and had a real good time. Why so much hate ? Let's all enjoy this while we can.

Had a blast at this show from the opening of "Music Never Stopped" to the encore of "Baby Blue" I've been into Ratdog since Jerry's UN-timely departure back in 1995. I love the way this lineup sounds. Even though I do miss having the Sax in the mix, I love having Kimock and both Robin and Rob Wasserman in the lineup. I was blown away when Bobby broke out "Essau' and loved the 1st set closer "Two Djinn".
The 2nd set was a lot of fun with a mini acoustic set and the crowd really seemed to enjoy the F.O.T.D. sing along. It was a treat to see Mike Gordon join the boys for Birdsong. The China>Rider was off the hook as Kimock just shredded it, very Jerryish leads.
I enjoyed this venue even though security was strict, hope Ratdog comes back to the East Coast over the summer. Would love to see a Phil and Friends/Ratdog double bill.
