Bob Weir showed off a bevy of his bromances last night at the Wiltern Theatre in Los Angeles, where he was joined by friends Jonathan Wilson, Rob Wasserman and Jackie Greene for a guest-filled second set of his “solo acoustic” show. Greene was aboard as the opening act, but the other two were more than welcomed unannounced guests.
Greene kicked off the show with a solo set of his own that saw Wasserman and Wilson emerge for Nobody’s Fault But Mine and You Can’t Lose What You Never Had. Weir’s first set mostly featured Dead tunes and songs from his solo repertoire. Wilson came out towards the end of the opening stanza for Days Between followed by a Wasserman sit-in on RatDog staple Two Djinn.
