Long Island Girls Rule’ Red Rocks
On Saturday moe. returned to Morrison, COs Red Rocks Amphitheater to share headlining duties with recently reunited hometown heroes Leftover Salmon. After the Colorado-natives played a full show, which culminated with Midnight Blues,
Better and an encore of Breaking Through, moe. took the stage for an extended set. A few songs in, Leftover Salmon mandolin Drew Emmitt also returned to the stage for a bonus appearance during 32 Things. Soon after, moe, busted out Rob Derhaks long lost original, Long Island Girls Rule, for the first time since April 27, 1999. For the song, percussionist Jim Loughlin reverted back to his mid-1990s post in the band as drummer, while current drummer Vinnie Amico switched to percussion. The group also dipped into its back catalogue for its first take on the traditional Jewish song Havah Negilah since 2005 and closed things out with spirited versions on Steely Dans Reeling In The Years and Stranger Than Fiction .
