Electron Shares The ‘Weekapaug Groove’

Last night, Marc Brownstein, Aron Magner, Joe Russo and Tom Hamilton
celebrated Halloween a bit early with an Electron performance at New
York’s Highline Ballroom. Future Rock played first and used Fright Night
to debut no less than three new songs, before opening the stage to the
evening’s headliner. As expected, Electron’s first set featured a mix of
originals from the Disco Biscuits and Brothers Past catalogues, including
‘Little Lai,’ ‘Home Again,’ ‘Confrontation’ and ‘Simple Gift of Man.’
Before the show rumors began circulating on Phantasy Tour that Electron
planned to revisit some of the Phish songs Brownstein, Magner and Russo
performed at the Jammys as part of the HeadCount All-Stars last May.
Brownstein addressed the rumors at the start of the group’s second set,
chiding the fans who leaked the rumor by name and joking that instead the
group is ‘going to play the same Pink Floyd covers Electron always plays.’
The quartet then launched into the Disco Biscuits’ ‘Rock Candy,’ before
segueing into Phish’s ‘Maze,’ ’2001,’ ‘Weekapaug Groove’ and, finally,
‘Tweezer Reprise.’ The night then wrapped up with Brownstein’s ‘Plan B.’
Brownstein and Magner will return to the Highline Ballroom tonight for
Conspirator’s Halloween show. Meanwhile, Future Rock will appear at
Richmond, VA’s The National.
