Thread: The "Winter of Love"

Hinzy - 9/7/2007 at 06:45 PM

Mule Ticket packages going on sale for NYE!!!! I can't wait - I was there for the Mule A Go-Go and I missed last year but "I shall return" for the Winter of love this year!!!! Yea!!!

Anyone got any thoughts on exactly what we will hear during the "winter of love" set??


pyro - 9/12/2007 at 09:14 PM

I've been speculating since they whipped out both "Southern Man" and "Rockin' In The Free World" this month that there may be some sort of Neil Young theme.... maybe with Neil or CSN there


gr8phulfred - 9/13/2007 at 09:12 PM

Dose anyone know the prices for tickets, per show?????


Hinzy - 9/14/2007 at 02:28 PM

No - they are not posting ANY information about the NYE shows. I'm not sure whats up...

I will say I believe the Winter of Love theme was chosen because this is the 40th anniversary of the "Summer of Love" in SF - so I bet we get a full flower power set with a bunch of dead and other hippie tunes - should be awesome!


pyro - 9/14/2007 at 04:04 PM

Still no info and Mule Ticketing still refuses to give good tickets, fun morning


LinnieXX - 9/14/2007 at 04:05 PM

hi Rob!


Thorazine - 9/14/2007 at 04:12 PM

Very fortunate this time... hope you were, too.

Front and center: Orch 2nd row (BB), seat 101!!

Can't wait for this year to end

Hallelujah !!!!!! All these years getting crappy seats and I finally get rewarded. ORCH Row CC seats 5-7. I hope the sound is good in these seats and I might go deaf, but I will be spending 3 nights including NYE sitting about 10 feet away from Mr. Warren Haynes. It's gonna be an awesome end to 2007 !!!!!

Angelemerald - 9/14/2007 at 04:46 PM

I too did very well, row BB. Center section is like a dream. Never ever got that before. Hard Head did good for us again this year. That's for sure.

HeathO96001 - 9/14/2007 at 04:56 PM

Very happy with my seat this year:

12/28: LOGE Row B Seat 17


Hinzy - 9/14/2007 at 06:23 PM

Hey All - we got great seats too! We have full 3 day passes and have 8 of our friends going. 4 in Row CC center - and 4 in row C first 4 on the aisle in Center right! I am PSYCHED for New Years!!!!!!


abbmountainjam - 9/15/2007 at 12:56 AM

I got lucky as well. I'm loving my seats! Third row center - Row CC - right in front of Warren for all three nights. I'm so pumped. The Winter of Love takeoff of The Summer of Love is a great idea. I would guess a real stoney 60's stage setup for the midnight set with random 60's covers throughout the set. Last year was fun, but I thought it wasn't nearly as fun and tight as the Mule a go-go the year before. I think this year will be a classic. So many opportunities to play with the Summer of Love theme. I can't wait. Does Warren and the rest of the band dress up fully as hippies circa '67? That would be my call. Full out hippie garb. Either way, judging by the last two years, this year will be a great time had by all!


Angelemerald - 9/17/2007 at 02:39 AM

So what do you guys think they will play?

To Sir With Love by Lulu was a big hit. So was Don't Sleep In The Subway by Petula Clark.

I think those might make a good theme. :-)


susea - 9/17/2007 at 11:20 AM

I will be in Atlanta this NYE but will be thinking of you all in NY cause normally that is where I would be! I'll be looking forward to see how this "Winter of Love" plays out....


vinsanity231597 - 9/17/2007 at 11:02 PM

All 3 nights, BB Seats 9-11. Hopefully I'll be able to make it home for the first night.


Angelemerald - 9/18/2007 at 01:41 AM

If any one comes across a pair of really great seats, I have a friend who could use them. Ang

It'll be another special year end closure!


halfskin - 9/19/2007 at 02:57 AM

I wonder what special guests will appear on NYE. Anyone is possible given the Mule's track record , except Betts & Clapton .Even if welcome Dickey will be busy @ BB King's & Clapton doesn't come to the Beacon.

All excellent & good possibilities given Warren has played with all of them this year. Can't wait for NYE


Hinzy - 9/19/2007 at 02:29 PM

I would say Lesh, Weir, Jorma, and Cassidy are all great possibilities. Perhaps Jorma and Cassidy and we will get some good old Jefferson Airpline - Warren belting out a little white Rabbit!??! That would be awesome..

Phil, Bob & Jorma all appear to have open dates. Jack's site couldn't access.


abbmountainjam - 9/19/2007 at 04:00 PM

There are some rumblings that Phil or Bob might do something seperately in San Fran this year. However, I doubt they would fly out just to sit in on a few songs. Just as I doubt if Warren wasn't doing anything on New Years, he would fly out to San Fran to sit in on just a couple songs. Too bad we didn't get Hot Tuna opening a show, I like the Jorma and Jack idea. I think we get someone no one would have guessed and/or Jimmy V sitting in and helping out (on a batch of 60's covers) ala the Mule a Go-Go set.

Don't Phil and Ratdog do their own NYE shows??? Hot Tuna is playing the Beacon two weeks before the NYE show so I doubt they will show up. I'm sure they will get some cool musicians involved. Maybe no huge names, but maybe some lesser known musicians from that time period. Guests or no guests it's gonna be a fun show. Every NYE Beacon show have been great !!!!

It's not about the guests but the songs. Expect Mule to break out some classics from the era just as they did during Mule a Go Go and Dub Side last year. I would expect some Dead and also some Airplane and some Hendrix.

You never know Doug. Isn't Warren doing a week at Jorma's ranch. Maybe him and Jack show up as a friendly payback.

That would be quite something. Jorma has stated on his website that the Mule is perhaps the best modern rock band out there right now.

pyro - 9/21/2007 at 02:24 PM

I'm guessing all the good tix were sold through the presale within the first 20 seconds, or else I just have really **** ty luck with these shows, I was on ticketmaster at exactly 10am and my first pull was row x.... closest i got was row P after about 15 minutes

[Edited on 9/21/2007 by pyro]


Geoff_Dietrich - 9/21/2007 at 02:38 PM

Agreed - it's almost like they sell from the rear to the stage.....


pyro - 9/21/2007 at 03:08 PM

certainly does to an extent..... and just called the 800 number on my friend's suggestion and went through all the crap twice to find out the show's not available through ticketmaster express yet


jehmutt - 9/21/2007 at 03:37 PM

I got row F in the loge for 12/29, center on the aisle. I usually go for the loge so that's cool. Also glad that TM is making the hidden word easier to see, I'm too old for optical illusions


Angelemerald - 9/21/2007 at 03:41 PM

I heard someone on another board got row AA in the orchestra so there were a few decent seats left. The other thing is to keep trying periodically as the time of the show grows nearer as tickets do become available then and to know that there are always people who need to sell their tickets becasue they can't make the show so to look on the boards, again as the time grows closer to the show.

For now, as long as you have a ticket, you're in. :-) And that 's a good thing.

Ang


Geoff_Dietrich - 9/21/2007 at 04:32 PM

I'm in and I'm not complaining, it just doesn't make sense....and I agree - thank you TM - no losing tix this year because I can't unscramble the hidden word!

[Edited on 9/21/2007 by pyro]


Me too. I'm not sure what went wrong this year but a bunch of people scored really awesome seats and the rest really did not. I think they put a lot more seats for the three days this year. Next year, they should really put most of the good seats that way. I bet they sell. And I bet a lot of seats will go up for sale closer to the show on either this site or the Mule Army. And we true fans will ALWAYS sell for face value.

Doug


biggieb - 9/21/2007 at 06:00 PM

I got 2 sets of tix.

Section LOGE, row F, seats 105-106

And

Section ORCH, row Y, seats 101-102

Can someone tell me which pair would be better. I've never been to the Beacon and I need to sell one pair off.

Thanks a million!!
Thanks!

I actually think the Loge are significantly better. The loge hangs down over the Orchstra whereas Orchestra behid, I think row N or so is actually underneatht he loge which hurts the sound and is also further away. I would keep the loge.

Of those two choices, definetly Loge. They are pretty much dead center and that is where the absolute best sound in the house is. Great unobstructed view also. If I didn't score third row in the presale, Loge are what I would have been shooting for. I sat almost exactly where your Loge seats are for two of the three shows last year and they were great seats.

I sat front row loge for Mule A Go-Go and the show before. Last year I sat front row balcony for New Years. The loge seats are some of the best in the house. When the Stones played for Bill Clinton last year, he sat dead center front row loge. So I call those the Presidential seats. And for the hell of it Pete I tried for front row loge today on ticketmaster. Couldn't score anything better than row C loge. So instead I'll settle for the seats next to yours row CC for all three nights. Gonna be a blast brother.


woodyrumble - 9/21/2007 at 08:57 PM

I am psyched for all of you who did it last Fri and got CC and up. My first NYE was down there and it is unreal. Mindblown thing, for sure. Unfortunately, our plans of doing the presale were interrupted by death in the family so we had to settle for TMs sale today, at least we aren't shutout. Genuinely glad for all of you... when I was up front there were some kind of posers up there, so I'm glad at least some of "us" will be hanging w Warren....

Sorry for your loss woodyrumble. I hope you score some good ones through TM.

Angelemerald - 9/22/2007 at 06:59 PM

Just a few comments from the peanut gallery (me). :-)

ok, I'm not saying i know everything. Really. But I do pay attention to tickets and where they are going and so forth. Especially for the Mule at the Beacon. I read about 6 different internet lists consistently and while it doesn't fully represent what's happening in an unbiased way, it does give a bit of a picture beyond knowing only what your group of friends got.

This year a lot - I mean a lot - of people did very well in the presale. Which indicated to me that there was a bigger bulk of very good seats that got out to the fans this year, even more so than last year. This year Hard Head must have negotiated a very sweet ticket deal with the Beacon and Live Nation which is the promoter for the event. I totally appreciate that they came out on the side of the fans becasue really, in this day and age, keeping a good fan/band connection is key for a band's success. Obviously a good fan/band connection doesn't matter if the band is U2, but many mid sized bands realize that getting good tickets into the real fans hands is a positive approach to the development of a loyal fan base.

That said, It hurt me to see that there are four AA row seats being offered up at the ticket broker sites at about 650 dollars apiece. (They are gone today but row cc's are available for 510 a piece.) And it seems to me that they are tickets that other fans are selling because they all say the tickets won't be available until a few weeks before the show, which is what Music Today does when they send out tickets. So there are a few fans who got the tickets through the fan presale and turned around to sell them for a hefty profit. I think people who do that are not very nice and I wish there was a way for Music Today to insure that people don't resell the fan club tickets. I don't want to open a whole discussion on the whole thing about brokers either, but am just pointing out that some fans take advantage of these kind of great fan/band efforts and they can end up ruining things in the future for the rest of us.

Of course I know quite a few people personally who got really terrific seats and they ONLY get rid of any extras - if they have any - to their friends and other hard core fans and they only sell it for the cost of the ticket. So these fans should be recognized for their efforts in keeping good tickets in the hard core fans hands too and thankfully they really out number the fans who like to make money off of other people's work (i.e.; the band's work, the venue's investment and the promoter's work). I can't even call this selling really cause it is about fans helping out their friends.

As for the Beacon under new management: I find it is a much better place to see a show now. While I personally prefer GA venues to see band's cause I like to dance, when I have a seat I really appreciate being able to use it and don't appreciate getting a badly obstructed view or annoyed because other people get jammed into the aisle space and push into you. It used to be like that at the Beacon and thankfully, since the new owners it isn't like that too badly anymore. I am not a totally rigid person and don't like an excessive security presence but to keep the aisles fairly clear or minimally blocked is good thing in case you want to go to the bathroom or get a drink or God forbid any kind of emergency.

I know some people are gonna say the Beacon is not as good as it used to be because it is a lot more difficult to smoke, but that isn't a problem for me. While I like to smoke my stuff at a show, I can dig not smoking at all so I don't have to breath in a ton of cigarette smoke. I've gotten sore throats so many times after just seeing the Brothers at the Beacon that I can confidently say, I'll give up my stuff if you give up yours. Jeff has mentioned that the Beacon may go GA on the floor, which is an idea I like, but I would still hope that the smoking would be at a minimum and that the place would not be allowed to get excessively crowded. Once at the Hammerstein for Phil I thought I was going to have to leave at the intermission cause of how overcrowded and hot it was. It's like how I think about driving: While I love to drive at 80-90 MPH's, the most important thing is to be safe on the road. Same for shows: While I love for the shows to get loose, let's just make sure there are no accidents and people leave without having any accidents.

As for the posers Woody Rumble, I will say you got that right. NYC and other metro area shows are shows where a noticeable mass of people think it's about them and not the performers on the stage. I found this to be true and I found this to be more true at the Brothers shows than the Mule, but still the Mule does get that "I'm the star here" sentiment coming from some of the NYC metro area fans. NYC is probably the top poser city in the US, though maybe there is a scene like that in LA too, I don't know. That's why I do travel outside of the metro area to see shows too. Also, you have to remember that the poser crowd is often comprised of people who are closest to the band and who get back stage passes and such for a lot of the shows. So, you know, you can't condemn them completely. LOL. I am speaking tongue in cheek here a bit cause you know I am from Brooklyn. And of course, the majority of the NYC fans are regular people like Doug and Pete and Allen and so forth. But I can probably make up a whole funny 15 minute skit about some of the **** I've seen, and even been involved with, at shows. LOL Anyway, Woody, you are welcome to come up front and say hello for a song or two. PM me and I'll tell you where I'm sitting. That way you get a chance to say hello to the boys on the stage and they won' fell so alienated as if the sea of people in front of them are all these strange strangers. :-)

Now what music from the winter of 1967 do you think they'll do?

I do agree that more tickets seemed to go to real fans this year. I don't know why I got messed up but I'm glad so many true fans were able to do so well. As it turns out, I have been given permission from my dear wife, to attend the New Year's Eve show with my date, Mule Girl! So I will be at all three this year. Of course, given Mule Girl's age and size, I had no choice but to purchase balcony seats so we could sit down. I got pretty good balcony seats though, row B seats 17,19. I am EXTREMELY excited about this. So I have good orchestra seats for the first two (thanks to some generous friends) and a comfortable balcony perch for the big three set extravaganza! Mule Rocks!

Just a few comments from the peanut gallery (me). :-)

ok, I'm not saying i know everything. Really. But I do pay attention to tickets and where they are going and so forth. Especially for the Mule at the Beacon. I read about 6 different internet lists consistently and while it doesn't fully represent what's happening in an unbiased way, it does give a bit of a picture beyond knowing only what your group of friends got.

This year a lot - I mean a lot - of people did very well in the presale. Which indicated to me that there was a bigger bulk of very good seats that got out to the fans this year, even more so than last year. This year Hard Head must have negotiated a very sweet ticket deal with the Beacon and Live Nation which is the promoter for the event. I totally appreciate that they came out on the side of the fans becasue really, in this day and age, keeping a good fan/band connection is key for a band's success. Obviously a good fan/band connection doesn't matter if the band is U2, but many mid sized bands realize that getting good tickets into the real fans hands is a positive approach to the development of a loyal fan base.

That said, It hurt me to see that there are four AA row seats being offered up at the ticket broker sites at about 650 dollars apiece. (They are gone today but row cc's are available for 510 a piece.) And it seems to me that they are tickets that other fans are selling because they all say the tickets won't be available until a few weeks before the show, which is what Music Today does when they send out tickets. So there are a few fans who got the tickets through the fan presale and turned around to sell them for a hefty profit. I think people who do that are not very nice and I wish there was a way for Music Today to insure that people don't resell the fan club tickets. I don't want to open a whole discussion on the whole thing about brokers either, but am just pointing out that some fans take advantage of these kind of great fan/band efforts and they can end up ruining things in the future for the rest of us.

Of course I know quite a few people personally who got really terrific seats and they ONLY get rid of any extras - if they have any - to their friends and other hard core fans and they only sell it for the cost of the ticket. So these fans should be recognized for their efforts in keeping good tickets in the hard core fans hands too and thankfully they really out number the fans who like to make money off of other people's work (i.e.; the band's work, the venue's investment and the promoter's work). I can't even call this selling really cause it is about fans helping out their friends.

As for the Beacon under new management: I find it is a much better place to see a show now. While I personally prefer GA venues to see band's cause I like to dance, when I have a seat I really appreciate being able to use it and don't appreciate getting a badly obstructed view or annoyed because other people get jammed into the aisle space and push into you. It used to be like that at the Beacon and thankfully, since the new owners it isn't like that too badly anymore. I am not a totally rigid person and don't like an excessive security presence but to keep the aisles fairly clear or minimally blocked is good thing in case you want to go to the bathroom or get a drink or God forbid any kind of emergency.

I know some people are gonna say the Beacon is not as good as it used to be because it is a lot more difficult to smoke, but that isn't a problem for me. While I like to smoke my stuff at a show, I can dig not smoking at all so I don't have to breath in a ton of cigarette smoke. I've gotten sore throats so many times after just seeing the Brothers at the Beacon that I can confidently say, I'll give up my stuff if you give up yours. Jeff has mentioned that the Beacon may go GA on the floor, which is an idea I like, but I would still hope that the smoking would be at a minimum and that the place would not be allowed to get excessively crowded. Once at the Hammerstein for Phil I thought I was going to have to leave at the intermission cause of how overcrowded and hot it was. It's like how I think about driving: While I love to drive at 80-90 MPH's, the most important thing is to be safe on the road. Same for shows: While I love for the shows to get loose, let's just make sure there are no accidents and people leave without having any accidents.

As for the posers Woody Rumble, I will say you got that right. NYC and other metro area shows are shows where a noticeable mass of people think it's about them and not the performers on the stage. I found this to be true and I found this to be more true at the Brothers shows than the Mule, but still the Mule does get that "I'm the star here" sentiment coming from some of the NYC metro area fans. NYC is probably the top poser city in the US, though maybe there is a scene like that in LA too, I don't know. That's why I do travel outside of the metro area to see shows too. Also, you have to remember that the poser crowd is often comprised of people who are closest to the band and who get back stage passes and such for a lot of the shows. So, you know, you can't condemn them completely. LOL. I am speaking tongue in cheek here a bit cause you know I am from Brooklyn. And of course, the majority of the NYC fans are regular people like Doug and Pete and Allen and so forth. But I can probably make up a whole funny 15 minute skit about some of the **** I've seen, and even been involved with, at shows. LOL Anyway, Woody, you are welcome to come up front and say hello for a song or two. PM me and I'll tell you where I'm sitting. That way you get a chance to say hello to the boys on the stage and they won' fell so alienated as if the sea of people in front of them are all these strange strangers. :-)

Now what music from the winter of 1967 do you think they'll do?

For example: http://rateyourmusic.com/list/joshvernon/top_albums_of_1967/



I would guess there will be some Beatles, some Airplane, Some Dead, Perhaps some Big Brother and the Holding Co., some Hendrix. Love would be really neat.

Doug


sixty8 - 9/22/2007 at 08:28 PM

Way to go Doug. You are very lucky indeed to have such a generous and caring wife. You and Mulegirl are gonna have a blast. Make sure you and Mulegirl get some of those cool New Year's sunglasses they sell on the street. We get them every year as a momento. They cost 3 bucks a pair I think.

It would be cool if Warren brought in a female singer for part of the middle set so they could do some cool Jefferson Airplane stuff as well as some Janis Joplin.

Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band >
With A Little Help From My Friends
Light My Fire
Whiter Shade Of Pale
Cold Rain & Snow
Sunshine Of Your Love

Angelemerald - 9/22/2007 at 08:48 PM

68, I was thinking the same thing like maybe Machan or one of the other females they have had and do something like A little piece of my heart. Don't know if it's 67.

Doug - Excellent!!!

Vinsanity, you got that set list right from my perspective. Though you missed For What's It's Worth.

Or maybe:

1. To Sir With Love, Lulu
2. Happy Together, The Turtles
3. Windy, Association
4. Ode To Billie Joe, Bobby Gentry
5. I'm A Believer, The Monkees

Also charting in that year. LOL.

I could actually see Mule doing I'm a Believer but not the others. The question is are they going to do stuff associated witht he San Francisco scene only or all music from that year. I would like to hear Warren sing Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Of course any Beatles stuff would have to be done with the original faux fabster himself, Jimmy V. JHeff's list actually looks pretty good. I am REALLY looking forward to this year's theme more than the last two as this is the music I grew up worshipping.

Doug


woodyrumble - 9/23/2007 at 04:30 AM

I was thinking more along the lines of a set of love songs more than reverse of summer of love, but that too could happen. I was thinking:

some Van, some soul ballads, Whiter Shade of Pale, type stuff, similar I suppose to the A Go Go thing they did, but less so on the Jimi etc stuff. Who knows though. If its love based it'll be fine by me. My lady love will be with me, as always.

btw, you know how I said row CC was my first NYE run and it was amazing, well that was our first real date and we're engaged; this will be I think 5th yr now. Magic up front, so watch out y'all.


dougrhon - 9/23/2007 at 02:06 PM

I hope they break out some new songs by some of these artists. For example, rather than Little Wing or Hey Joe, how great would it be to hear Warren shred it on "Fire" or "Purple Haze". I would imagine they are going to lean in a slightly psychedelic way, just as Mule a Go Go went for the R & B side. If anyone has seen the poster for the run, it looks like something right out of 1967.

Doug


pyro - 9/23/2007 at 02:55 PM

I'm still hoping for some sort of Neil Young involvement.... Warren could have talked to him at the past couple of Farm Aids, Dave Matthews' been playing with him some recently and could get them connected, and Neil's actually touring for the first time in a few years right now up till a week or 2 short of NYE


didn't they announce the surprise guest before tickets went onsale last year though?

[Edited on 9/23/2007 by pyro]


Angelemerald - 9/23/2007 at 04:14 PM

Whiter Shade of Pale, wasn't that brought to one of the NY shows last year? I do like the Mule's cover of it though. Danny does a great job on it. They should bring it on the road and I would't mind hearing it again at the Beacon.

Doug, I still felt like 05 was more soul than R&B. No?

Pyro, I would think if anything, Neil would do the Christmas Jam. I bet he stays home with his lovely wife for the New Year. :-)


sixty8 - 9/23/2007 at 10:00 PM

Warren also loves Mowtown. I'm wondering if there were any great Mowtown hits that year?

I think you're right. But to me fromt hat era, they were somewhat interchangeable. Can anyone state the difference circa 1965?


sixty8 - 9/24/2007 at 12:54 AM

To me Soul and R&B are pretty much the same thing.

Pete


Angelemerald - 9/24/2007 at 07:40 AM

Wow. To me:

Soul is like Aretha Franklin while R&B is like the Stylistics or the Chilights.

Soul is like James Brown while R&B is like the Temptations or the Four Tops.

R&B has this rhythm thing going on. While soul doesn't necessarily have to follow a consistent rhythmic pattern. Soul songs can be about anything, while R&B has to be about the blues. Soul was the precursor to funk and eventually disco and rap, while R&B was the precursor to rock and grew out of the blues, with some smooth jazz overtones and with some gospel thrown in for good measure, but not too much gospel cause then it might be more like soul.

Of course it isn't an "official" differentiation, but how I think of the difference between the two.

LOL. :-)

I don't know if it fits the theme, but ya gotta love Albert King!
And if Warren goes in that direction he can bring in Larry McCray.
However if Warren is going for Winter /"Summer of Love" this song reminds me of that time

This should be a fun late night party... I caught PBS at Voodoo Fest in NOLA this past Oct and they were solid... Hopefully George can make it to the Beacon for a song or two during Mule's set.

I bought a GA ticket -- how is this venue for sound and vibe?


Angelemerald - 12/5/2007 at 05:17 PM

I haven't ever been to that venue. It looks nice though. Did you see the photos of it?

I am getting excited about these NYE shows. Hopefully we won't get snowed on.

Music Today tix have arrived for NYE. No special design like last year's which were amazing.


dougrhon - 12/23/2007 at 02:29 AM

Now that the show is just about a week away, what does everyone think the middle set will consist of. List your predictions here and we will see who is right. I will make the prediction that Mule will play something from Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, perhaps Lucy or something else but wouldn't it be cool to hear Warren belt out "It was 20 years ago today....."?


Doug


Thorazine - 12/23/2007 at 04:27 AM

I like your Sgt. Pepper prediction.

My guess is something from Disraeli Gears, like Sunshine of Your Love and something from Are You Experienced (take your pick)...

I'd be stoked for some Dead, too...

Any guesses on special guests?


nyc_barb - 12/23/2007 at 01:17 PM

When I first heard Winter of Love, I thought of Jimmy Vivino. With all the Fab Faux and Prisoners of Second Ave stuff, he'd be a shoe-in for that sort of show. Unfortunately, I doubt we'll see him for the 2nd set; he's playing till midnight somewhere in Jersey. Perhaps he'll run in for the 3rd set? I do love what he adds to the Mule shows.
Whatever it is, I'm sure Warren will make it good.
Won't be long now, see you all on the 31st!


dougrhon - 12/23/2007 at 03:15 PM

I would be pretty surprised if there is no Airplane.

macon - 12/29/2007 at 05:20 PM

I thought this show had one of the most interesting setlists I have ever experienced at a Mule show. Virtually all of their most popular material remains "in the barn", which I thought led to the show being a little uneven. Maybe a little too much Reggae, no real need for "Lively Up" when we had "Unring" in the second set. Would have liked to have heard "Silent Scream" or something more "Mule-like" in place of "Lively". Great surprise to hear Have Mercy on the Criminal, the first Elton John cover I believe they have done. The band absolutely cranked, and everything they played was high energy, and first rate. Looking forward to a great show tonight. Good to see Angela, Sixty 8, Deb and Pete, Cyber Ron and Russell (out of retirement) and many other familiar and friendly faces.

Good to meet you last night macon. I agree with you about the Reggae which I'm not really into that much myself. However with the energy the band had last night I think they could have played just about anything and we would have eaten it up. You are right about most of their best stuff not being played yet which bodes well for tonight and Monday. If they bring the same passion to the stage for the rest of the run we are in for quite a ride.

One thing though. I wish they wouldn't have a Stormtrooper(security) standing against the stage facing the crowd for the whole second set. I payed to watch Gov't Mule blow me away, not some little idiot in a security jacket. I felt like I was being watched and it just isn't right. The security really sucks at the Beacon now. I don't understand why they had to change such a good thing in that place considering that I never saw any trouble there before they changed security. James Dolan ruins everything he touches.

JessicaA - 12/30/2007 at 12:11 AM

I think the setlist was perfect. Of course I love reggae and the blues and Van Morrison and Prince. The band sounded awesome. Matt Abst is an amazing drummer, I discovered. The sound at the Beacon was perfect. Warren's voice never sounded better to me. They freaking rocked and complaining about the songs seems silly, but of course spending almost $100 for a show, they probably should play all night, atleast after midnight. What a machine rock and roll is.

You want bang for your R&R buck? New Year's Eve generally runs from 9:20 PM through 2:45 AM. How many bands do THAT anymore? It's a real short answer.

I must say I was very excited to hear a Velvet Underground song. I was expecting that for tomorrow night, but I thought they would play some tired Dead cover with Tea Leaf Green. It was a great surprise. I'm hoping for something off of Piper at the Gates of Dawn tomorrow, perhaps Interstellar Overdrive or Take Up thy Stethoscope and Walk. I think Wilson Pickett's Funky Broadway would be appropriate, given the location.

Same here Doug, and I look forward to many more meetings at Mule, ABB, and Hot Tuna shows. It has also been great meeting Angela, macon, Jeff(vinsanity) and Deb & Pete. Great to finally put some faces to the names. Jeff is the man. He had his laptop and was keeping everyone here up to date on the setlist and keeping us up to date on the Giants - Patriots score. He also shared some of the great photos he has collected from some of the shows he has seen. Some really great shots, very impressive.

Another great night of music with another unpredictable set. Great songs with George Porter Jr. and the horn section. Another great loud and crazy Beacon crowd. My mind is fried today. I'm glad there is a day off before the grand finale on Monday. The crowd won't be quite as rowdy for New Year's Eve if past history holds true. A few more wives and families being sprinkled into the crowd, but the music is sure to be just as special and I can't wait to see what kind of surprizes await us. See everyone on Monday.


dougrhon - 12/31/2007 at 12:29 AM

I thought that was perhaps the most exciting Mule show I have ever seen but that may be because of the Who songs (The Who are one of my all time favorite bands and not heavily covered by Warren or the Mule) I also loved the old school feel and enjoyed hearing Temporary Saint, Fallen Down and a wicked Spanish Moon. I am hoping for an "I Shall Return" tomorrow night. BTW, that was a great Soulshine with those horn players. I am glad to say goodbye to Raegae Soulshine. It's so much better as originally written. Friday and Saturday's shows have been absolutely epic. Very different. Friday was heavier, bluesier and darker, yesterday was more uptempo hard rock and jazzier. Can't wait for tomorrow. I am still going to predict Some Airplane and maybe a Big Brother or never before played Dead song and I would bet something from Sgt. Pepper. I wasn't around but I understand that record really defined that summer around the world.

Couldn't agree more about Soulshine. The horns freshened it up for sure. I too don't care for the Reggae version, actually I never liked the Reggae version. Tomorrow is gonna be fun!!!

Now that the show is just about a week away, what does everyone think the middle set will consist of. List your predictions here and we will see who is right. I will make the prediction that Mule will play something from Sgt.

I don't mean to toot my own horn but it looks like this is one prediction I got right!!!

Great show. I highly recommend the package Mule Tracks for EVERYONE. There is some truly different and unique stuff.

any idea when the NYE Mule Tracks will be put up to download??


sixty8 - 1/1/2008 at 06:30 PM

Not soon enough Effie. A great run for sure. I saw Gov't Mule play more songs that I have never seen them do before then on any run I can remember. Warren and the boys were right in the pocket from the opening of 'Brighter Days' till the last note of 'Sad And Deep As You'. I have never seen Warren interacting with the crowd and enjoying himself so much. Just awesome!!!

Almost had an altercation with some jerk who somehow snuck down to the front without a ticket, then when he got pissed that someone who had a ticket there accidentally bumped into him decided to throw his full beer on about five or six of us. I have to begrudgingly give a big thumbs up to security for defusing a very volitile situation that was about to get ugly. I'm not sure if the old staff would have reacted as quickly as they did, so as much as I hate some of their tactics I have to give credit where credit is due. It would have stunk to have been thrown out like that beer throwing jerk and miss the third set. That along with another idiot and his exhibisionist wife with her boobs exposed all night(she was not as hot as she thought she was) put a little damper on the first part of the third set, but fortunetly within a couple of minutes everything was back to fun and music.

I had a blast on this run and am wiped out today. I finally started meeting more of the fine folks from the board and look forward to seeing them again at Mountain Jam 4 in May and meeting more too. Everybody have an awesome New Year!!!!!!

She loved what she was awake for. She slept through most of the 2d set but awoke for the countdown and the Beatles ending. I DID see one other young kid there, a girl who also looked about Jordana's age. As always, I got nothing but kudos from those around me for doing the work of spreading this greatness to the next generation. See y'all at the Allman run then Mountain Jam!

It was great meeting you as well. I officially declare 2008 the year of the Mule! I also was highly impressed with the setlist, even not including the WOL set. Lot's of new stuff or rarely played stuff and a lot of tracks I not only never heard live but do not even have on any of my recorded shows. Now if they would just bring back War Pigs!

Angelemerald - 1/1/2008 at 07:00 PM

I wrote this on the Philzone.


LOL. I think it was the best vocal performance of Warren's career. And the band was very, very tight. The material was right up the fan's ally. At least for me it was. There will be criticisms, I'm sure, but for those who like early 60's rock and soul, by a band that can do justice and then some to it all, well, this is the show. Also during the third set, there were some great songs as well. Reblow was the homage to Reggae. And there was a homage to Coltrane I believe. I know it wasn't Miles but I think Coltrane who died in 1967. So the core four did this great jazz number. Andy is just dying to do more jazz, I thought he was going to pump that bass up to the ceiling. I think this was in the 2nd set though. Man, my memory is shot. Slowly it will come back to me but it was like sensory overload. There was a dj who looked a little like Joey Arkenstatd to me, though I could be wrong. The hung chicken shared the dj's booth.

I'm still dying to know what that chicken is about.

Also there was a portion where an announcer came out. He was made up to look like Ed Sullivan. LOL. And a speech by ML King, not sure which one.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Was that guy Dolan? The one who dressed like Ed Sullivan? I thought maybe he was. If it was I need to tell him a few things.

Personally, the venue isn't for me. They eased up a little on the Nazi behavior after the first night but still anyone who says they got a toke in, they did but like a criminal would try to get a toke in, not like a law abiding citizen. If we Mule fans get one more NYE out of this, we will be lucky. I don't mind not smoking pot and I can go straight but the place does step on the grass and I don't like it. I can see it being a feather in the band's cap but I wonder if their policies would drive away the fans eventually. Lots of people traveled to both NYC and Atlanta. Good turnouts were had by both, considering it was a Monday night.

If I had my druthers this is what I think the next few months should look like:

Gov't Mule stays off the road for six months. Warren "rests" for five months and does some serious preplanning for 20th Anniversary Asheville, maybe throwing in some music for FUN.

Danny goes on tour with Stockholm Syndrome in a month and they tour for about a month there. It is so successful they decide to do a longer tour and come to the Midwest, South and North East while mule is off the road. Matt and Andy set up a new band. They need a good singer. I liked Mike Farris a lot. Grace would be great too but she needs to keep the Nocturnals on the road to follow-up on the Mule momentum. I would have also added Eric McFadden in with Andy, Matt and Mike, but McFadden is with Stockholm. So there are a few players still needed to round out the band. It must have a good singer for me to dig it. But Andy and Matt have that jazz thing going on so they could even enlist Johnny Neel and make it a jazz rock experimental trio. That would make me happy too.

May, with the help of God, the ABB will be in town. I could tolerate maybe a few Mule dates between Langerado and Wanee. LOL. But generally I think Mule needs to take a break. I know it's hard to do, but sometimes you have to leave the fans wanting more.

Then in September hit us with a solid, logical Fall tour and I think everyone will be nice and re-energized for the the New year. I mean that from the fan's perspective. :-)

Really.

I was only able to see the Sat nite show. Happy New Year to all and to the folks who are bringing the next generation along are making tomorrows memories .

I agree that vocally Warren was dynamic in all three shows. I hope Mule will take the Winter off and Warren will do a few local solo shows. I would love to catch him.

woodyrumble - 1/3/2008 at 04:42 AM

Andy tore up that My Generation!!! Tore it up! George's appearance for Spanish Moon and Hey Pocky Way unreal. It made reflect how awesome he is. I saw him w the Mule so much and after this much time has passed it truly is remarkable to think how he helped bridge the Mule. Who knows what would have been the outcome if not for him, a rock.

The Dew was awesome, hell just about everything in that WOL set was amazing. His Morrison was spot-on. The face in the mirror won't stop!! What great fun. Thanks to everyone whose positivity and hope for the new year made it so.

Happy and healthy new year for all of us....


woodyrumble - 1/3/2008 at 04:47 AM

BTW, did anyone else see the gallery of pix in midtown from Woodstock? We walked the whole way to the show and bumped into this one week showing of pix from 67-8 Woodstock of (not the fest in 69) Jimi, Bob D, Jim M, the Band, Eric C, Janis!!!! Totally killer set-up for us. On the way out the door they had the Mtn Jam postcards that were at the show. I love **** like that. It was like down on 3rd or Lex and 50s or something random. Amazing luck and it seemed to follow through in the show. Too cool.


Angelemerald - 1/3/2008 at 05:18 AM

I'm still so blown away by the whole four days and three great Mule shows. I don't know when I'll be able to write anything coherent.

All I can say is get the Mule Tracks. They will be well worth it.

I'd also like to see the mgt. contract to have burned a limited run of all three shows for people who can't download but would love to buy a copy of the 3 shows and who would by them at a nice price with some tasty art work, perhaps a few photos of the NYE event.

Anyway. I just loved the 3 shows and I always have critical things to say. Overall, these three shows were great, brilliantly executed and are going to be remembered for a long time.


brucegz - 1/3/2008 at 07:17 PM

Anyone feel that Matt sat back from his usual rabid outbreaks on NYE? He was solid, always on but I can only recall a couple of moments where he dazzled me.

Warren's voice is surely in it's prime. I enjoyed NYE very much but felt it was a little underjammed. Maybe I was so high from last year's Dub which I LOVED that my expectations were changed. (don't love Mighty High but did love the Dub).

Link I found about Radio Cosmos (if this is the station mocked for the 2nd set)

The first set was a little mellow but had a number of extensive jams including I'll Be the One. The third set was all lengthy jams but they were very boppish/jazzy due to the sax and trumpet interracting with Warren's guitar. The Winter of Love had a couple of semi-stretched numbers, including the Doors Songs and Morning Dew but of course those were not Mule like. They obviously wanted to get as many numbers into the WOL set as possible. As it is they played close to two hours. I found all three shows to be quite different in character. The first show was the bluesiest. The 2d show was most uptempo/hard rock and the third one we all know about. Overall, I think the best Mule shows I have ever attended.

Are you sure??? It looked a little like him but I wasn't sure if it was the same guy that played Joey A.


sixty8 - 1/4/2008 at 02:15 AM

I am about as sure as I can be Angela. He is five years older now and I had lower balcony seats for that show, but I am pretty sure. When Warren announced him as Joey that sealed the deal for me.
