After teaming up with his Dead & Company bandmate John Mayer and friend Sammy Hagar in San Francisco earlier this week, Bob Weir opened up a run of three California dates with his Wolf Bros trio in San Diego on Wednesday evening, offering two sets of Grateful Dead favorites and a few choice covers.
The performance kicked off with “The Music Never Stopped,” and the first set featured Wolf Bros staples like the latter-day Dead/RatDog tune “Easy Answers,” Weir’s solo cut “Gonesville,” “Loose Lucy” and a cover of Bob Dylan’s “When I Paint My Masterpiece,” plus Dead classics like “Tennessee Jed.”
Set two began with another cover, The Beatles’ “Blackbird,” followed by “Cassidy” and a “Truckin'” that included a foray into “Fever,” a song most known as Peggy Lee’s signature number. Wolf Bros also fit another Dylan tune, “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall,” along with “Scarlet Begonias,” “I Need a Miracle” and “Going Down the Road Feelin’ Bad,” before rounding out the night with a classic “Ripple” encore.
Check out the full setlist below, along with a fan-shot video clip of “Fever” and some photos from Instagram. Bob Weir & Wolf Bros continue their California stint tomorrow night in Ventura followed by a final show in Napa on Saturday.
