The events of last night remain classified, however I've been authorized by someone at the tippy-top to leak a few details... We had the best seats in the house at the RatDog show (Bob Weir's band) at the beautiful Beacon Theatre, because we were watching our friend - and drummer for The Larch - Tom Pope make a great big splash on the second drum kit. Way to go, Tom! I'm so happy for you. It was a great show too. The best Dead-related thing I've ever been to.
