TRI StudiosEvery Wednesday night that he can do it Bob Weir will be taking questions live online at TRI Studios in a program he is calling, “Weir Here.” Here’s the drill: TRI goes live with Bob Weir and who ever else decides to show up. Social media maven, Kim Schultz, will field questions live via Twitter to ask Bob and his guest(s). So tweet TRI and Bob Weir your questions live during the event or in advance using the hashtag #weirhere.

This Wednesday, January 23 at 5:30 pm PST, Bob will be joined by Dave Schools, the bassist from Widespread Panic. Ask them some questions and possibly hear some tunes! I have been lucky enough to get some passes and will be there live to hear your questions being answered. I can’t wait! It should be a fun event. Hope to see you all online at TRI Studios Wednesday!
