Now playing: Perpetual Groove – Thriller

RatDog has announced that they’re coming back. Bob Weir must have gotten some good R&R to come back so quick. Let’s all wish him a good tour. I don’t know if I’ll catch one of these shows; I’m feeling that some of the members of The Dead are just played out now. [], [JamBase]

The New Deal have come back triumphantly, as evidenced in this great gallery on JamBase. I’ve still yet to see these guys, as they’ve only ventured to Chicago a couple times. I hope to catch them soon…

Also on JamBase, you can check out the listing of things to do for New Year’s Eve. Start making your plans if you have not done so already. There’s still tickets available for Umphrey’s McGee at the Riv. I’ll be the guy with the live music blog t-shirt on.
