Galactic Funk-Up FEMA

Last night, Galactic performed its fourth New Orleans show since JazzFest commenced at the House of Blues. Over the course of the evening, Galactic performed a number of its trademark songs, including ‘FEMA,’ ‘Dump Truck’ and the now anathematic ‘When the Levee Breaks.’ Similar to last weeks Fair Grounds set, Mike Dillon acted as an auxiliary percussionist for Galactic’s entire set. In addition, guitarist Eric Lindell, who will perform at JazzFest this weekend, joined Galactic for ‘Goin’ Down Slowly,’ while the Greyboy Allstars’ Mike ‘Elgin Park’ Andrews guitarist ‘Black Talk.’ Galactic will perform at New Orleans’ Contemporary Arts Center with Gov’t Mule and the Dirty Dozen Brass Band tonight.
