This is so cool. Have a great time. There is a forum here - Other Literature where some of us have discussed the beats and their influence.
Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,

mvyradio.com will broadcast this Sunday's Bob Weir & Ratdog "Special Tribute to Jack Kerouac" show from Lowell, Massachusetts as part of its "On the Road" series. The program will begin with Weir reading from Kerouac's works, scheduled for a 6pm start with the Weir/Ratdog musical performance afterward. Links to the stream will be available on the home page of www.mvyradio.com.
This show will be a special tribute to Lowell native Jack Kerouac, and his traveling companion On The Road, Neal Cassady, who had a great personal influence on the members of the Grateful Dead. Kerouac's original manuscript scroll of his most famous novel, On The Road, is on display at the Boott Cotton Mills Museum Gallery adjacent to the concert venue, Boarding House Park. Weir read On The Road in 1964 and became forever changed. "It told me the world was a wide open place. Go get it," said Weir in a November 2006 interview with the Lowell Sun.

Just came back from Iraq for the 3rd time and the show is in Lowel Mass. How sweet im home on leave from the Marines got me 3 tickets looking Fwd to the show. The last time i went to a show was last year before i left in VA. What a homecoming thanxs bob!
Spell Check for sure next time I post. One would think that if I had any idea at all what I was talking about, that I would at least get the name right. (DER)
After being out of the loop for so long, ( the last show I saw ,i think, was just after JERRY had come out of a coma and played in Virginia), I could not imagine a more intriguing venue to attend . I can't wait for the disscussions on Kerou's influence. I hope they have a question answer forum with the audience.
That Sandy Eggo show was awesomely great.... first Dog show for me in a long while....well worth the wait. Wake up Lil Suzy with Keller was definately a treat. I liked the whole show but I was looking for Izzie to bolt to the restroom when the opening notes of Black Peter started...LOL

Oh what fun!!! It was a beautiful day...I heard some cool muzak...sounded like Keller Williams....wait, he was onstage whilst the folks were entering. Said "hi" to the boat people...found my seat, wandered, had a drink, found friends who gave us their seats, which were closer & had more dancin' room...Bobby came up onstage & did a nice little Wake Up Little Suzie w/ Keller....waiting in line for my first Humphrey's Iced Tea......then Ratdog came up....started playing Playing...whilst I was still in line...everyone was dancin' & singing & waiting...ran around everywhere dancin & spinnin free...heard a nice Dark Star...kept going over & saying "hi" to the boat people, also said hi to the front row people too...everyone was having fun! What a nice night. Kimock was great with the Dog....loved Kimock....missed Mark & sent good healing vibes to him. Yelled, and barked at the Dog...Whoo hoooo, ruff, ruff, ruff!!!
Life's too short to be blue...
first of all the harrahs casino venue gets a big thumbs up . fits 2,500 people , lawn chairs are welcome . my only complaint was it was just a scosh to loud . more towards room temp would be better . ( at least for me ) .
the first three songs started off a few beats slower than normal , BUT things really started to groove with a sweet dark star , and continued the rest of the night .
rat dog played one 2 1/2 hour set . i like the 2 set scene better .
