The first West Coast Ramble of 2013 took place last night at Terrapin Crossroads in San Rafael, Calif. where the venue’s owner Phil Lesh was joined by God Street Wine and surprise guest Bob Weir. GSW kicked off the show with a set of their own featuring the five original members of the band and multi-instrumentalist Jason Crosby. For the second set, Lesh teamed up with members of God Street Wine as well as Furthur members John Kadlecik and Jeff Chimenti. Weir unexpectedly came out for the final set of the evening and stuck around for the whole closing stanza.
