Trey Anastasio Band Finally Make it to the Cap

On Wednesday night, Trey Anastasio Band performed the first show of a two-night run at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY. Anastasio had performed at the HeadCount benefit concert at the Capitol in September, but this show marked his first headlining gig at the newly renovated venue.
The show was the rescheduled date for TAB’s twice delayed October 28th concert that the band was forced to postpone due to Superstorm Sandy. Anastasio made reference to the cancelled show on stage and noted how disappointed he had been back in October when the band hadn’t been able to perform. He also thanked the Cap’s owner, Peter Shapiro, for bringing the historic room back to life and expressed his hope for many more great nights to come at the theatre. As some fans may remember, Trey Anastasio and Classic TAB also moved a scheduled 2008 show at the Cap to Roseland Ballroom after the theater’s former owner deemed the space unsuitable for a rock show at that time.
During TAB’s two-set show, the band played a number of songs from Anastasio’s newest solo album Traveler and busted out Toots & the Maytals’ “Sweet and Dandy” for the first time since March 2011 at the request of someone in the front row (Anastasio recorded the song for Toots & the Maytals’ 2004 album True Love). The encore featured the Phish frontman on acoustic guitar for “Flock of Words” and “Heavy Things.” The Trey Anastasio Band returns for a second show at the Capitol Theatre tonight, which will also be available as a live webcast on LivePhish.com. Last night’s setlist can be viewed below.
