Members of ekoostik hookah Sit in with moe.

Two classic jambands shared the stage at North Lawrence, OH’s
The Ville Festival on Sunday night. The festival, which was formally known as hookahville, is organized by Ohio jam heroes ekoostik hookah. This weekend’s set marked moe.‘s first appearance at the festival.

The group opened their first set with “Crab Eyes” and offered “Nebraska” and “Tailspin.” However, they stopped their set early do to sound issues. They later returned for an extended set that included a lengthy segue from “Billy Goat” into “CalifornIA” and “Plane Crash.” Then, members of ekoostik hookah took the stage to help moe. through their own “Life Is Good.”

moe. will kick off their fall tour at Keene, NH’s The Colonial Theatre on September 25. Hookah will appear at Thornville, OH’s The Werk Out Festival on September 14.

Why does everyone keep saying moe. had sound issues and their set had to get cut short? This was just a case of the promoter blatantly LYING to festival goers to sell more tickets. moe. was scheduled for a single set with this first “set” being nothing more than an open soundcheck. Chuck even said “welcome to our soundcheck” and they were messing with levels (like you would in a soundcheck) the whole time. I was told in an e-mail direct from the promoter moe. would play two sets. Shame on the promoters of this festival….

The first moe. set was always on the web site schedule – and everywhere else – as being 45 minutes long. The schedule is still on, in fact. A slight setlist correction, members of EH sat in on Plane Crash and members of moe. sat in for Life is Good – they were all onstage by the end of PC and stayed there until the end of LiG. Chuck and Al, I believe, came back out for a “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” encore at the end of EH’s set. See for yourself: BG>Plane Crash Life is Good: WMGGW: A very good time overall!

Yes, exactly. No promoter advertised 2 sets of moe. They stated that moe. would play 45 minutes. Unfortunately they chose to spend a bulk of that time dicking around with levels and whatnot. Every other band on the bill played with the same set up and had no problems. That being said I love moe. and they killed it.
