here's what it's about: bob weir just made a surprise appearance on the Rope-A-Dope stage alongside Jay Lane, Jeff Chimenti, Mark Karan, Kenny Brooks and Robin Sylvester as Ratdog gears up for their set tonight. Brian Stoltz was also there to help stop the rain and bring us back our sunshine. i hardly noticed that i was in a downpour, to be perfectly honest.
then someone's light bulb clicked on- take weir's line, mesh it with Lane's beat... hey, let's bring out a rapper. why not? so they did. (nobody seems to know his name, however. i'll have it for you shortly.)
...obviously Jay Lane's Ratdog Experiment was a surprise. word on the mountain is that it was only yesterday (thursday) that the guys decided to get together onstage; great decision if i've ever heard one. i think i speak for everyone when i say thanks to Bob for that rainbow that just appeared over the entire festival.
(my camera just died- any chance someone has pics of the rainbow?)
