Last night Bob Weir & The Campfire Band continued a brief tour with the first of two shows at Austin City Limits Live at the Moody Theater in Austin. Before the show, Weir met with Austin Mayor Steve Adler who presented the guitarist with a key to the city.
Bob, a HeadCount board member, spoke with Mayor Adler about the guitarist’s “Vote Local” initiative.
Later in the night the Grateful Dead guitarist took the stage with his Campfire Band featuring Aaron Dessner, Bryan Devendorf and Scott Devendorf of The National along with Jon Shaw, Josh Kaufman and Steve Kimock. The setlist stuck to the same format as other Campfire Tour performances with a handful of Weir solo acoustic songs followed by the band emerging for the rest of a first set heavy on material from Blue Mountain.
Bob Weir & The Campfire Band kicked off Saturday’s second set with “Me & My Uncle” and “Dark Hollow.” Next up was “Tennessee Jed” which was the first Grateful Dead song the group performed last night. Other Dead tunes played in the second set were “Playing In The Band” and “Eyes Of The World.” The closing stanza also featured the group’s debut performance of “Minglewood Blues” and a beautiful “Morning Dew” to end the set. Weir returned to begin the encore with a solo acoustic take on “Ki-Yi Bossie” followed by a full band “Peggy-O” to close out the evening.
