You might have heard the story: In March of last year, Bob Weir was annoyed by a loud-talking fan while performing at the Sweetwater Music Hall, and yelled a simple admonition: “Shut the fuck up.” The video hit YouTube, we mocked him in these pages as part of a fold-over joke, the Sweetwater started selling T-shirts based on the incident, and the rest is history. Bob Weir returns to the scene of the crime this week as he and Ratdog
kick off their spring tour in an intimate hometown show that’s utterly sold-out. Our advice: stand outside, try to find tickets, and, by all means, don’t talk too loud. Wednesday, Feb. 5, at the Sweetwater Music Hall. 19 Corte Madera Ave., Mill Valley. 8pm. Sold-out. 415.388.1100.
