On March 30, Bob Weir & Wolf Bros closed their wide-spanning winter tour in South Carolina with two full sets, not to mention the first version of Bob Dylan’s “Desolation Row” since 2014.
After some tuning up, Weir and the Wolf Bros opened the first set with “Bertha” and worked through “The Winners” (an old favorite of Weir and Rob Wasserman) as well as “El Paso.”
Then came the aforementioned “Desolation Row” which was last heard on 3/4/14 by RatDog in Buffalo, NY. Later, the trio ended the first half with a three-part “Passenger”> “Wharf Rat”> “Deal” jam.
Set two kicked off with a lively “Music Never Stopped” containing a segue in and out of “Easy Answers.” The improv continued through a lengthy “Lost Sailor”> “Saint of Circumstance”> “He’s Gone”> “The Other One”> “Days Between” segment before finally landing on a crowd-pleasing “China Cat Sunflower”> “I Know You Rider.”
The band encored their final show of winter tour with an emotional “Black Muddy River.”
