A Nola NYE
Galactic concluded its holiday run with a night in the Crescent City at Tipitinas. The night offered opening slots from Papa Mali and the Soul Rebels, as well as an encore Soul Rebels set between Galactic sets. The headliners performance spanned its career, digging in for some of its earliest instrumentals as well as offering some newer material from its forthcoming disc. Both Papa Mali and the Soul Rebels joined in for multiple songs, with the latter bands appearances on Blackbird Special standing out as well as a version of Dr Johns ‘I Walk on Guilded Splinters’ with Mali, Monk Boudreaux and Anders Osborne. Other notable offerings included the bands FEMA, and Shibuya along with a cover of Led Zeppelins Immigrant Song.
