Bob Weir Plays Intimate Acoustic Show At Amoeba Records [Gallery/Video]

first_imgGuitarist Bob Weir has been deeply exploring the “cowboy music” side to his songwriting, which comes to light on the great new album Blue Mountain. Officially due out this Friday, Blue Mountain is Weir’s first complete batch of new songs in over 30 years, and highlights his affinity for acoustic-driven country music. That essence was in full display last night, when Weir sat down for an intimate performance at the famed Amoeba Records in Hollywood, CA, to talk about the new album and play some selections of original music.Weir treated fans to a seven-song setlist, that opened with blues traditional “Walkin’ Blues” before a cover of Bob Dylan’s “When I Paint My Masterpiece.” After playing title track “Blue Mountain,” Weir called on his collaborator Josh Kaufman to assist on the remainder of the set. Kaufman joined for “Only A River” and “Lay My Lily Down,” two songs from the new release, before going into a cover of the traditional “Peggy-O.” Finally, they closed the set with “Ki-Yi Bossie,” one last sampling of Blue Mountain.Watch the full video of the performance below:Fortunately, our photographer Steve Rose was on the scene to capture this marvelous event.
