Widespread Panic’s Electric Ballad

Despite gearing up for an extended hiatus, Widespread Panic has debuted several new covers in 2012. During the first stretch of their acoustic Wood Tour, Panic introduced a cover of The Beatles’ “Ballad of John and Yoko.” Last night, during the third show of their Panic en la Playa event, the band kicked off their first set with the first electric version of “The White Album” selection. The group also offered a few tasty jam segments, including a pairing of “Heroes” and “Impossible” first set and a run from “Tie Your Shoes” into “Ride Me High,” “Airplane” and “Goin’ Out West: second set. During the day, keyboardist JoJo Hermann also judged the event’s BBQ sauce competition.
