moe. Paid Tribute To Butch Trucks With An Awesome “In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed” Encore At The Georgia Theatre [Recap / Setlist]

first_imgJam stalwarts moe. continued their winter tour last night with a tight two-set performance at the Georgia Theatre in Athens, GA. The band filled the show with older, fan favorite material, awesome and poignant covers, ambitious improvisation and slick transitions.Set one opened with an energetic take on “Sensory Deprivation Bank”. “All Roads Lead to Home” followed, before a fun version of “Queen of Everything” was trotted out. “Don’t Wanna Be” came next, before an awesome “Opium” into “New York City” segment that was the highlight of the first set. A big “McBain” brought the first set to a close.Set two started off with the familiar falsetto of “Blue Jeans Pizza”. A heartfelt “The Happiest Days Of Our Lives” was up next, and that started off an awesome three-song segment that featured Pink Floyd‘s ever-poignant “Another Brick in the Wall”, and a raucous “Lazarus”. The band then kicked into high-gear with a seamless, four-song set-closing run through “Hi and Lo”, “Don’t Fuck With Flo”, “Ricky Marten”, and “Meat”.For the encore, the band stepped on the stage and busted out an improv-heavy cover of the Allman Brothers‘ classic “In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed”. It was a touching tribute to the recently deceased Butch Trucks, who sadly passed away earlier this week. They turned in an emotional version of “Liz Reed” in honor of their fallen compadre, as they toured with the Allman’s back in the 2000s.See below for a full setlist from last night’s moe. show at the Georgia Theatre.

Democrat Greenfield raises $1.1M in race for US Senate seat

first_imgDES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa Democrat Theresa Greenfield raised more than $1.1 million from July through September in her campaign for the seat held by Republican Sen. Joni Ernst.Greenfield, a Des Moines-area businesswoman, ended the quarter with more than $1.2 million cash on hand. The $1.1 million marks somewhat of a slowdown in fundraising pace from the first quarter, when she launched her campaign and subsequently raised more than $625,000 in less than a month, but it matches what Ernst raised during the second quarter of the year.Greenfield’s campaign says 92% of her contributions this quarter were $100 or less, and noted she’s significantly outpacing what Ernst raised around this same time during her first run for Senate.Greenfield is one of four Democrats competing to take on Ernst, but she’s received the support of a number of national Democratic groups.Ernst is seen as a top target for Democrats next fall, though the Republican senator enjoys a high approval rating in multiple polls.last_img read more
