Galactic’s New Orleans New Year’s

As they have for many years, Galactic celebrated New Year’s Eve with a two-show run at New Orleans’ Tipitina’s. The New Orleans band’s New Year’s Eve show was a three-set marathon featuring a number of guest musicians. Steady Galactic collaborator Corey Glover (Living Colour) sat in for most of the group’s vocal numbers while trombonist Corey Henry (Rebirth Brass Band) played throughout the show.

Galactic’s New Year’s Eve shows are always late night affairs so it was no surprise that midnight fell during the group’s first set. At the stroke of midnight, the band busted into “Auld Lang Syne” and then segued into “Jet Airliner.” Guitarist Eric Lindell—who opened the show with his trio—also emerged for the latter song.

At the start of their second set, area hero Anders Osborne emerged for a three-song mini segment consisting of “Darkness at the Bottom,” “Lord is Waiting” and “Who Took the Happiness.” Harmonica ace Johnny Sansone also joined in for the segment.

Galactic has a big 2012 ahead, including the release of their studio album Carnivale Electricos. The group will return to the stage for a performance at Jacksonville, FL’s Freebird Live on January 5.
