Bob Weir is a restless soul. Already fully engaged with Furthur (his latest and perhaps most true-to-form post-Grateful Dead venture), his solo band Ratdog, assorted musical projects at his TRI Studios, activity in various political and environmental organizations, and the occasional mountain-bike foray, this founding member of the Dead comes back to town in the midst of a short solo tour. If ever there were a musician who deserved a little rest and relaxation, it might be the tireless Weir. Instead, the songwriter is really only at rest when he's busy playing his guitar, which, in the solo-acoustic context, offers yet another level of musical fulfillment — for him and everyone else involved.
