Only caught one of three Ratdog shows at the Beacon this weekend; the weather had me down, tickets were tight, and my old friend Dirk was in town and invited me for steak. What can I say? Estimated> Other One went places, and I wish there had been more DJ Logic. I missed Donna and the Mighty Quinn last night, but Bobby’s still a rock star.
