The BoDeans
The Independent, San Francisco, CA

I haven’t seen—or listened to much for that matter—The BoDeans  since I received some tapes during my trading binge after Jerry Garcia died. The main reason I went was to see Warren Hood of The Waybacks who is playing fiddle with them and I had a really good time. I recognized some of the material but most of it was new and quite enjoyable.

It was also my first time seeing a show at The Independent. It’s a nice, small club and I’d definitely go back but I don’t understand why people absolutely rave about it. Nice, but it’s not all that.

Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers opened up and after her horrible performance with Phil Lesh’s West Coast Ramble a week earlier it was great to see her have a good night. I’ve seen her join other bands but I’ve never seen her own band. I’m not sure I’d want to see a full show of their material but they were great as an opener.
