Widespread Panic “Bust It Big” With Eric Krasno & Ivan Neville For Night 2 In Mexico [Photos/Videos]

first_imgThe weather on the second night of Panic en la Playa at the Hard Rock Resort in Riviera Maya, Mexico felt eerily similar to the previous night’s weather that culminated into a torrential downpour. So, it was very appropriate when the band opened with Van Morrison’s “And It Stoned Me” directly referring the audience’s feeling that “I hope it doesn’t rain all day.” After a quick pause, Widespread Panic weaved a rowdy version of the classic tune “Disco” to get the crowd into it. JoJo Hermann continued his brilliance through “Disco” and into another heartwarming classic “Good People” from their album “Earth to America”.John Bell got into the mayhem with a cutting version of their original “Worry” led by Jimmy Herring’s electrifying guitar playing. JoJo sang lead on his own song “1×1” which got the audience stomping their feet. To close the set with a bang, the band then delivered an extended “Second Skin” in accordance to the night’s theme. Dave Schools rocked the bass, and the bands took several turns soloing in their roundabout, unselfish style. The onslaught of music paused for a moment before a condensed combination of the original tunes, “Machine > Barstools And Dreamers” ended the first set of music, consisting of nearly 70 minutes of sonic bliss.The band resumed night two with “A of D” to open the second set which transitioned into a bass-heavy “Bear’s Gone Fishin’”. The party really got started when they segued into “Tall Boy” with Jimmy Herring piloting in overdrive. Next, the band returned to the rain-induced weather theme with a cover of Bob Dylan’s “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall” with John Bell acing the convoluted and tongue-twister lyrics. The band then took their only pause of the second set before stirring the pot with a explosive rendition of the original tune “Dyin’ Man”, which segued into a jagged version of “Sell, Sell” off the latest album Street Dogs. John Bell promises knowingly that “The next one’s gonna be the best one of the year!”The musicians put down their instruments to allow space for Sonny Ortiz and Duane Trucks to put their own percussive brand to the set with a solid “Drums” session. Eric Krasno and Ivan Neville accompanied the band on stage to produce a gloriously psychedelic version of Parliament Funkadelic’s “Maggot Brain”. Jimmy Herring and Eric Krasno were battling toe-to-toe in a professionally competitive showdown which melted many faces of the audience. The octet continued the musical massacre with an extended rendition of the J.J. Cale tune, “Ride Me High.” JoJo took lead vocals, but he made sure to give Ivan Neville enough room on his keyboard set to run rampant. JoJo wisely advises that “the less you want, the more you got; so don’t you cry for more!” To conclude the second set, the band executed a kick-ass “Bust It Big”, reminiscent of last year’s encore of the first night. Naturally, the crowd went nuts and was especially raucous in accompanying the words to the song “Gonna pour my shots and ride that liquor down…. TO MEXICO!!!”After shuffling off the stage for a moment, the sextet of rock n roll royalty returned to play a glorious version of Jorma Kaukonen’s “Genesis”. This sentimental song transitioned into the barn yard scorcher “Love Tractor”, providing a stark contrast and closing the night of music with an explosion of energy. As long as the weather holds off, there is no reason that the prodigious musicians of Widespread Panic will indeed prove that this year will be the best one yet.Maggot Brain[via MrTopDogger]Bust It Big[via LoadOffAnnie]Setlist: Widespread Panic | Hard Rock Resort | Riviera Maya, Mexico | 1/26/2018I: And It Stoned Me, Disco, Good People, Worry, 1×1, Second Skin, Machine > Barstools and Dreamers (68 mins)II: A of D > Bear’s Gone Fishin’ > Tall Boy > A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall, Dyin’ Man > Sell Sell > Drums > Drums & Bass > Maggot Brain* > Ride Me High* > Bust It Big* (102 mins)E: Genesis > Love Tractor (12 mins)* w/ Eric Krasno (guitar) and Ivan Neville (keys)Check out the full gallery from Day 2 of Panic en La Playa below from Dave Vann.Panic En La Playa 7 | Day 2 | Photos by Dave Vann Load remaining imageslast_img read more

FKJ Announces Extensive 2019 World Tour

first_imgThis week, French multi-instrumentalist FKJ has announced an extensive schedule of 2019 world tour dates including a lengthy run of performances in the U.S. The tour is set to begin in early February with a 7-show stretch in Europe including stops in Amsterdam, Paris, Brussels, Cologne, Berlin, Copenhagen, and Hamburg. From there, FKJ will head to the U.K., where he’ll mount a four-night, four-city run through Glasgow, Manchester, Bristol, and London.After a break from the road throughout the month of March, FKJ will head across the pond to commence a nationwide, 22-date North American swing spanning most of April and May. After kicking off his North American run in Vancouver, BC on April 5th, the French sensation will make his way to Seattle, WA; Portland, OR; San Francisco, CA; Phoenix, AZ; Austin, TX; Dallas, TX; Houston, TX; New Orleans, LA; Atlanta, GA; Orlando, FL; Tampa, FL; Washington, D.C.; Philadelphia, PA; New York, NY; Boston, MA; Montreal, Quebec; Toronto, Ontario; Detroit, MI; Chicago, IL; and Minneapolis, MN before rounding out his tour with a performance in Denver, CO on May 21st.FKJ–short for French Kiwi Juice–is a multi-talented one-man band whose output is consistently riveting. The Tours, France native utilizes the most potent elements of a vast spectrum of styles to craft his “expanding grooves.” FKJ is a wonder to watch. He creates all the moving parts—the smooth guitar licks, the synths, the sax, the jazz-blues bass lines—and sets them loose as hip-hop beat loops and introspective jazz tangents, juggling the mounting melodies with effortless flow. He released his first official album, French Kiwi Juice, in 2017, and has begun to crack the insular jam audience with sets at large-scale festivals like Suwannee Hulaween as well as other high profile events like Coachella and Lightning In A Bottle.If you’re unfamiliar with FKJ, you can get a glimpse of the power and beauty of his live performances with the video below. The 16-minute clip, shot by Le Sofa, showcases FKJ’s recent special performance at the Paris Modern Art Museum, staged in front of the massive mural “La Fée Electricité” by late French painter Raoul Dufy on the curved wall of Pavillon de la Lumière et de l’Électricité (“Pavilion of Light and Electricity”). FKJ’s enthralling live improvisation session in front of the massive, priceless mural is a fascinating study in the harmony of sound and sight, as the audio-visual spectacle of his morphing, meandering melodies plays off the vibrant thematics of the mural to fantastic effect. Do yourself a favor: set aside a few minutes, tune in, zone out, and thank us later.FKJ – Live at La Fée Electricité – Paris, FR [Pro-Shot][Video: FKJ]For a full list of FKJ’s newly announced tour dates, see below. Tickets for the upcoming tour go on sale this Friday, November 9th. For more info, or to grab your tickets when they go on sale, head to FKJ’s website here.last_img read more

Phierce Photo’s Top 50 Images From The 2018 Phish Halloween Run In Las Vegas [Gallery]

first_imgOn Halloween night, and on the three nights that followed, Phish returned to the MGM Grand Garden Arena for the final run of their fall tour in Las Vegas. As you’ve probably heard by now, Phish trolled their Halloween audience by “covering” an obscure (read: fake) album by a fictional band. They followed that up with three more excellent shows to close the tour.Thankfully, Phierce Photography’s Keith Griner was on the ground in Sin City to capture the magic of Phish’s four-night run in Vegas. In the wake of the memorable Las Vegas stint, Griner has compiled his favorite images from throughout the run to share with his fellow fans. As Keith explains about his particularly notable Las Vegas experience,Phish was the first concert I ever attended without adult supervision. I was 16 at the time—the show was at Deer Creek, 6/19/95. … This Vegas run was special to me, as I also celebrated 11 years of sobriety on October 31st during the Halloween performance. There’s nowhere I would rather celebrate than with Phish and my sober phamily in the Phellowship, Phish’s sober group. I don’t really remember any of the shows I went to for my first 8 years as a Phish fan. I’ll never forget this Vegas run, and that fact couldn’t make me happier. My life is such a blessing now.Check out a gallery of Keith Griner’s favorite shots from Phish’s four-night Las Vegas Halloween run below.
