Trey Anastasio Band Play Five New Songs in Denver

Photo by Marc Millman

The Trey Anastasio Band debuted five new songs last night during the second and final night of their run at the Ogden Theatre in Denver.

The show began with a few TAB originals such as “Mozambique” and “Alaska” before going into a cover of The Five Stairsteps’ “Ooh Child.” The show then continued with the first new tunes, “Paper Wheels,” “Bounce” and “Leverboy,” the latter of which was played by Anastasio and longtime friend a lyricist Tom Marshall in 2008. The set also featured a version of Bob Marley’s “Small Axe.”

The next two debuts—“In Rounds” and “Very Far Away”—came early in the second set, which also featured takes on “Show of Life,” “Last Tube” and Gorillaz’ “Clint Eastwood.” The band then encored with a rendition of Led Zeppelin’s “Black Dog,” finally wrapping up a two-night stand that saw no repeats from TAB.

As previously reported, TAB debuted two more originals—“Silver Smoke” and “Pulsing Days”—and a cover of Ana Tijoux’s “1977” during the first show of their Denver run. The band will continue their tour tomorrow night with a show at the Uptown Theater in Kansas City, MO. They will then make their way across the Midwest and Southeast, including a two-night stand at the House of Blues in New Orleans.

Hey now, TAB isn’t that bad. I mean its a fun show, not much jamming to speak of but some of Trey’s solo tunes are good. Now Mike Gordon Band on the other hand is the best thing since sliced bread. Cant wait for syracuse and mass moca!

I could be wrong but isn’t Small Axe a Peter Tosh song?

I thought it was a pumping awesome night. And I love their new songs! Didn’t waste my time,but I would waste my time anytime with TAB! Totally Awesome Band! I heard from a little bird that TAB has a few more new songs for us to enjoy! Bring it!

It isn’t Phish, and If Trey is sober and enjoying what he is playing… so be it. He has earned a bit of artistic license IMHO.
Like the Vince years with the Dead, nobody is forcing you to go. Be well, my friend
