Rateliff’s voice is a masterpiece — he cries out, he growls, he whispers — and his face is nearly as expressive. Each wince, scowl, and grimace gives more weight to his enormous voice and the song being played.
During the set, Rateliff reminisced about the last time he played in San Diego: “Last time I was here I almost got into a fight with a guy wearing sandals. I’m not saying anything bad about wearing sandals, but if you are going to get into a fight, don’t wear sandals. You can’t run in them and your toes will get smashed.”
