Great, tight show. Lots of energy throughout. The opening Jam > Feel Like a Stranger was a fun (if too common for San Diego) way to kick it off. I've always loved Big River, and Bobby and gang ripped it up. Baby Blue > Easy Answers > Loser was a fun, nostalgic trip to Deadlandia. The "Cheese Dog" encore was tons of fun, as well.

Just wish my recording had come out unscathed. This spinner, unknown to me, had kicked out my mic cable mid-Stranger, and I was unaware until mid-Baby Blue. Looks like I'll have to find an alternative copy and stitch in the missing part... grrr :)

What a great return to san diego. It was just a little while ago that Bobby had us all quite worried. Well, it is clear that the Dog is as tight as they have been ever. The setting was beautiful and the band got it going from the start. Stranger was just the right feeling to kick the evening off. Some real highlights included Standing on the Moon, and of course Sugar Mag was great. All in all, it was a tight jamming and enjoyable set. It would be great to serve up a little more Cheesedog combos on tour. There is great synergy between the bands and they should pull out all the stoppers. On to Red Rocks!!!

I was a little bummed by the show. I did leave after an hour since most of the songs up to that point were cover songs rather than Dead stuff. The 4th and B shows were always the best. I am glad Ratdog played before String Cheese Incident did.

So my sister flew in from the east coast for the Geek and Alpine and we get front row and Ratdog just Rocks.
I yelled out for a Women are Smarter right as they are about to play Bury me Standin, Bob gives me a strange look-They played it the next song and I got a Vibe high f
rom the Crowd. Then a Scarlett and I was in Heaven!!
I did not realize how long its been that I danced that hard, Rock on RATDOG!!!!!
