Ahead of Phish’s show at the PNC Music Pavilion in Charlotte tonight, bassist Mike Gordon came to town early to sit in with Gov’t Mule during their show at the Uptown Amphitheatre in downtown Charlotte. Gordon replaced bassist Jorgen Carlsson during part of the second set for a special drums and bass jam that also featured a “Cactus Dragonfly Jam” with Craig Sorrells, who also guested throughout the show.

Sorrells, who is head of the Craig Sorrells Project, also lent his instrument to “Stratus” in the first set as well as “Silent Scream Pt. 2” in the second set following the jam with Mike Gordon. Next up for Mule is a slot at Alpharetta, GA’s Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre alongside longtime pals The Avett Brothers.
