The BÖC headlined the third day of the Ribs On The River Festival. Show started out about 25 minutes late. Seemed to be some technical problems/sound gremlins. Was awesome to see the legendary Rudy Sarzo once again on the "monster bass". Tickets were a very reasonable $10 ($20 for "upgraded seats"). Was surprised by the addition of "Perfect Water" which Eric Bloom said they haven't played in a "a few months".

Even a few teenagers hung around so they could her the cowbell during "Don't Fear the Reaper". Hopefully they learned a thing or two about the "thinking man's heavy metal band".
