Widespread Panic Welcome More Guests in Los Angeles
After opening night at the Orpheum saw the band jam with Steep Canyon Rangers’ Nicky Sanders and drummer Wally Ingram, Widespread Panic again welcomed a few special guests as they closed out their two night run in LA.
Once again, Sanders joined the group towards the end of the first set for “Time Waits,” “Can’t Get High” and “Genesis.” After a second set opening trio of “Rock,” “Christmas Katie” and “Chilly Water,” Neal Casal (Ryan Adams, Hard Working Americans) added guitar to “Tall Dragger” and “Time Waits For No One.” Panic bassist Dave Schools performs with Ingram in Stockholm Syndrome and Casal in Hard working Americans.
Other notable moments from the show include a rare triple encore which kicked off with Murray McLaughlin’s “Honkey Red,” a debut for the band. Next up for Panic is the Azalea Festival in Wilmington, NC on April 11.
