Jorgen Carlsson Debuts With Gov’t Mule, Pink Floyd Set Rumored For Tonight
Last night at the Flynn Theater in Burlington, Jorgen Carlsson made his debut with Gov’t Mule. The bassist colored a number of songs and jams, including a driving sequence that closed out the second set, which started off with ‘Mule’ segued into ‘Superstitious’ and then moved back into ‘Mule.’ That set opened with the group’s first ever cover of the Faces’ ‘Stay With Me.’ The encore then began with a cover of Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’ (a song popularized by Jeff Buckley), which featured only Warren Haynes and Danny Louis before the full band emerged for ‘Slackjaw Jezebel.’
Gov’t Mule will perform a Halloween gig in Boston tonight at the Orpheum. Based on the clues at the Gov’t Mule site, it appears that the group will offer a set of Pink Floyd material (which seems all the more likely given the fact that one of our intrepid reporters has confirmed that Carlsson is indeed quite familiar with the music of Floyd).
