Two Festivals Mix in Camden at AmericanaramA

Camden, NJ’s Susquehanna Bank Center hosted the traveling AmericanaramA festival yesterday. This stop on the festival was also rolled into Camden’s weekend-long XPoNential Music Festival. Festival ticket holders were able to attend the nearby AmericanaramA after the day’s festivities ended and a few XPoNential ended up onstage at AmericanaramA as well.

After a single-day detour to Newport, RI so Jim James could perform at the annual Folk Fest, My Morning Jacket rejoined AmericanaramA tour staples Bob Dylan and Wilco. Ryan Bingham opened the show.

During My Morning Jacket’s set, Dawes’ Taylor and Griffin Goldsmith, who were in the area for an XPoNential set, sat in on a cover of The Rolling Stones’ “Waiting on a Friend.” It was the second time James had collaborated with Dawes in a few hour span: Earlier in the morning, the MMJ frontman joined Dawes during their Newport, RI late night show. Then, Matthew Houck, who was at XPoNential for a set with his project Phosphorescent, made a guest appearance on The Velvet Underground’s “Oh Sweet Nuthin.”

Wilco’s set also boasted some surprises. Bingham’s fiddler Richard Bowden joined them onstage at the start of their set, and the band offer the live debut of the 2009 Wilco (The Album) song “Solitaire.” Later in the night, Bingham and his band joined Wilco for a take on “California Stars.” Wilco also played their cover of Doug Sahm’s “Give Back the Key to My Heart.”

After playing two shows with Charlie Sexton on lead guitar, Bob Dylan brought back Colin Linden to fill the lead axe-man spot last night. Sexton and Linden have alternated lead guitar spots since Duke Robillard left Dylan’s band mid-tour.

The AmericanaramA tour continues at Greenwood Village, CO’s Fiddler’s Green Amphitheatre on Wednesday.

Bob Dylan should quit. Anyone who thought he was good last night needs to have their ears checked. MMJ and Wilco were awesome. Two of the best bands out there.
