RatDog/Gov't Mule | June 21st, 2008 | Seattle, WA

With more than just crowd pleasers at Seattle's WaMu Theater, Gov't Mule and Ratdog co-headlined a fine show!  Arguably an unlikely tour duo, Bob Weir and Warren Haynes delighted Seattle with this second stop on their Summer tour.

Here are just a couple highlights I took home from the industrial, cavernous, nouveau concert hall:

Gov't Mule eloquently reminded us what "Soulshine" is all about and the encouraged the bliss of disappearing into the infinite of one's potential.  Change is inevitable but we all open up to the refreshing properties of soulshine in the dawn after darkness!  Sunshine, Moonshine, and (of course) Rain - Spirit outshines them all.

"Where have you been, my blue-eyed son...where have you been my darling young one..."

As a mother, "A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall" held special significance.  On the cusp of a new sociopolitical age, we are capable of maintaining remembrance of what we want our world to look like, and what we don't.  Ratdog delivered the empowering, timeless music of Dylan fame: "And I'll tell it and I'll speak it and I'll think it and I'll read it...And reflect it from the mountain so all souls can see it...And I'll stand on the wall till I start sinking...And I'll know my song well before I start singing..."
