Widespread Panic

I was going to pass on their latest bay area run, but then I remembered that they replaced their latest lead guitar player with Jimmy Herring, who ranks pretty high on my top ten guitar players whom are alive. So I took Rachel as a belated bday present, and BARTed over to the oakland Paramount. My favorite thing was the super sketchy 8 person "shakedown" assembled in the back lot of the venue. Anyhow, there's no doubt that Jimmy Herring brought fresh life into the group, and they rocked a lot harder for it. I might have once creamed in my pants during some epic Herring led jams.

My faith in this band = restored. The show was excellent. I'm gonna troll for some shows since they don't seem to be up on
