moe, Galactic with Stage-Swap Reciprocity at the Fillmore
This past weekend during the moe./Galactic co-headlining performances at Denver’s Fillmore, the two groups offered mutual opportunities for those full-band segues long-patented by moe (prior co-conspirators include Gov’t Mule, the Ominous Seapods and Umphrey’s McGee). On Friday night Stanton Moore first emerged during moe.‘s ‘Timmy Tucker’ which in turn yielded a complete Galactic appearance. The members of moe. gradually stepped off stage for a few minutes only to return a bit later for the segue back into ‘Timmy.’ On Saturday, the inverse occurred with moe. gradually taking the stage during Galactic’s set (minus Jim Loughlin and with Al schnier on keys) for a brief take on ‘Brent Black’ in the midst of Galactic ‘s ‘Chicken Pox.’ These shows marked the end of
moe.‘s winter tour, although the group will perform twice in Vermont on February 21 (a free gig during the day at Magic Hat’s 9th Annual Mardi Gras and then an evening show at Higher Ground). Meanwhile Galactic’s Freezestyle 2004 is just underway, with a performance tonight at Dave’s on Dickson in Fayetteville, AR.
