moe. closed their Turin, NY moe.down XIV festival with a guest-heavy, two-set show yesterday. After opening with “Stranger Than Fiction,” “Suck A Lemon” and “Crackers,” the group brought a number of children in attendance onstage as part of their annual Kids’ parade during “Bearsong.” Mike Dillon Band trumpeter Carley Myers also accompanied the kids as they took the stage in their costumes. Later in the set, Dillon emerged to play percussion on a set-closing “Buster.”
moe.‘s second set opened with “Queen Of Everything” and really got going with a segue from “Moth” into “Hi & Lo” and “Opium.”
Then, guitarist Stanley Jordan emerged for a take on “Yodelittle” and remained onstage as the number merged into a version of “Meat” the band started on Saturday.
Jordan returned a bit later in the show to play with moe. during their “Rebubula” encore. His drummer Kenwood Dennard also sat in for part of the song, with moe. drummer Vinnie Amico moving over to percussion. moe. closed their show with “Happy Hour Hero,” before the festival treated fans to a fireworks display. moe. also hosted their annual moe.down Mayor election and Ditch Party took home top honors.
