Charlottesville Pavilion
Charlottesville, VA


Fantastic show at a great new venue. Sound man had it dialed in perfectly, as did the "best band in the land." Ratdog rules!

TDog, Charlotte, NC
Jam > Shakedown Street - great opener; well done
She Belongs to Me - what a treat!!!!!
Minglewood Blues - very well played
Mission in the Rain - great version of a beautiful song; Jerry in the air Sunday night
Lucky Enough - not a fan of this, but well played
Playin in the Band - very cool and well played
Ship of Fools - a fav song given justice by this band. I didn't realize it was in their rotation.
Eyes of the World - where the show goes from a good one to a real good one if not great.
Victim or the Crime - cool to see it acoustic and another one nailed
Black-Throated Wind - the highlight for me
Even So > October Queen - loved this version; given a lot of emotion by the band - rightous
The Deep End > Playin Jam - cooooool
Samson and Delilah - Sunday night, energy was strong
Jam* - super cool and really good
Sugaree - wasn't sure I would like it here, but it was nailed
Playin in the Band (reprise) - great
E: Ripple - cried through the first part. soaked it in.

Fantastic show in a cool setting. Was not prepared for how good RD was. Thought they would be decent, but I was actually kinda spun leaving, which for this day and age is exceedingly rare. Kudos to Bobby and the Band - They were faaaaannnntastic!!!!!
