Mike Gordon Returns for RAQ
Mike Gordon emerged from semi-hibernation Friday night to help RAQ celebrate 4/20 at South Burlington, VTs Higher Ground. The former Phish bassist emerged at the start of RAQs second set for Im Bad Im Nationwide and the Allman Brothers Bands Whipping Post. During his 92nd St. Y appearance Trey Anastasio mentioned that Gordon was taking a year off from touring, which likely accounts for his limited appearances in recent months. Gordon wasnt the only Phish-associate on the bill that night: former Phish engineer and current Page McConnell band bassist Rob O’Dea opened the evening with Deep Soda. On Saturday Jon Fishman and Touchpants supported RAQ at New Yorks Bowery Ballroom as part of Green Apple. RAQ will perform May 4 at Church, VAs The State Theatre.
