'Sing Out for Sight' Seva benefit w/Bob Weir, Steve Kimock & friends, Oct. 10, 2015, Sweetwater Music Hall, Mill Valley, CA

Review at http://www.gratefulweb.com/articles/seva-benefit-sweetwater-review
On Oct. 10, 2015, Bob Weir and Steve Kimock along with RatDog alumni Robin Sylvester and Jay Lane were the musical stars of the benefit for SEVA (seva.org) and the Mill Valley Film Festival at the intimate Sweetwater Music Hall in Mill Valley, California. Displaying an interconnected lead and rhythm guitar synchronicity, Kimock and Weir led the band of four through a compelling 90 minutes of Grateful Dead and RatDog songs. But while Weir, Kimock, and friends elicited the most energetic crowd reaction, they alone did not define the night. The benefit was a celebration of Seva’s four-millionth sight-saving surgery, as well as a celebration of “Open Your Eyes,” an independent film shot in Nepal and produced by Vermilion Films and HBO (HBO plans to broadcast it in early 2016). The movie premiered earlier in the evening down the street at the Throckmorton Theatre. All images ©Alan Sheckter / AlSheck@comcast.net
