It's finally here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

On a side note, I heard from about 5 or 6 of my friends that they were listening to Q104.3 and the Q announced that Randolph and Gregg will be at the Beacon tonight to play with Mule. I am aware that both have NYE shows, Gregg already announced their's will be over by 10:30, but Randolph? They're headlining in Sayreville, NJ - think it's possible that he may show up? I doubt that the Q would lie, that either means 1 of 2 things (or a combination):
1. Randolph is ending early (doubtful, he'll probably end at 1)
2. Mule is going until the wee hours, much later than we expected (if Randolph is making it from NJ, they will be going late)

Did anyone else hear this on Q?

Yeah, Highlights of the last set were Just Like A Woman with Gregg and It's a Man's World with Warren. Warren made some changes to the words, as in maybe it's time for a woman. It's a man's world indeed.


It's a Man's World by James Brown

This is a man's world
This is a man's world
But it wouldn't be nothing
Nothing without a woman or a girl

You see man made the car
To take us over the road
Man made the train
To carry the heavy load
Man made the electric light
To take as out of the dark
Man made the boat for the water
Like Noah made the ark
This is a man's man's man's world
But it wouldn't be nothing
Nothing without a woman or a girl

Man thinks about the little betty baby girl
And the baby boys
Man makes them happy
Cause man made them toys
And after man made everyhing
Everything he can
You know that man makes money
To buy from other men
This is a man's world
But it wouldn't be nothing
Nothing not one little thing
Without a woman or a girl

He's lost in the wilderness
He's lost in bitterness
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Just Like A Woman by Bob Dylan

Nobody feels any pain
Tonight as I stand inside the rain
Ev'rybody knows
That Baby's got new clothes
But lately I see her ribbons and her bows
Have fallen from her curls.
She takes just like a woman, yes, she does
She makes love just like a woman, yes, she does
And she aches just like a woman
But she breaks just like a little girl.

Queen Mary, she's my friend
Yes, I believe I'll go see her again
Nobody has to guess
That Baby can't be blessed
Till she sees finally that she's like all the rest
With her fog, her amphetamine and her pearls.
She takes just like a woman, yes, she does
She makes love just like a woman, yes, she does
And she aches just like a woman
But she breaks just like a little girl.

It was raining from the first
And I was dying there of thirst
So I came in here
And your long-time curse hurts
But what's worse
Is this pain in here
I can't stay in here
Ain't it clear that--

I just can't fit
Yes, I believe it's time for us to quit
When we meet again
Introduced as friends
Please don't let on that you knew me when
I was hungry and it was your world.
Ah, you fake just like a woman, yes, you do
You make love just like a woman, yes, you do
Then you ache just like a woman
But you break just like a little girl.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


They also did A Whiter Shade of Pale. I didn't know a lot of the songs for the middle set. But there were a lot of new ones too. And a lot in the first set but I don't remember.

And the Beacon was sold out tonight.

:-)

Happy New Year Everybody. Ang

Music Review | Gov't Mule
Toting Up the Sum of Its Influences
By NATE CHINEN

Gov’t Mule played two Beatles songs as encores at the Beacon Theater on Friday night. Earlier in the show the band covered Cream, Jimi Hendrix, Willie Dixon (by way of Howlin’ Wolf) and Little Milton (via Jerry Garcia). A James Brown jam was offered in tribute. A Stevie Wonder vamp cropped up in a Mahavishnu Orchestra tune. And during John Fogerty’s “Effigy” there were quotations of Johnny Cash songs.

That clutter of references does a decent job of summing up Gov’t Mule, a jam band with more than a casual investment in classic rock, soul and the blues. The Friday concert, the first in a three-night run, was typical: a seesaw of dense, hard riffs and rambling digressions. Along the way there was room for original tunes spanning the group’s 11-year recording career. (It helps that the concert lasted well over three hours.)

The originals — and, for that matter, the array of influences — came courtesy of Warren Haynes, Gov’t Mule’s lead singer and guitarist. Mr. Haynes hails from a Southern-rock tradition of shaggy virtuosity. And as he regularly does as a guitarist in the Allman Brothers Band, which has also been known to set up shop at the Beacon, he galvanized. It was unmistakably his show, despite the reliable cohesion of his band.

As a singer he makes ample use of a bluesy rasp, flexing it to fit whatever dynamic the music demands. So he was convincingly sweet-tempered on “Hide Your Love Away,” one of the Beatles songs. Elsewhere he mostly howled.

On “Brand New Angel,” a psychedelic tune from “High and Mighty,” Gov’t Mule’s latest album, his harnessed rage made the chorus sound like something by Soundgarden. Then came “Mr. High & Mighty,” the album’s lead track: the juicy hard-rock riff, coupled with a strained vocal, evoked vintage AC/DC. It’s probably not a good thing that the originals weren’t much more original than the covers, but Mr. Haynes made that seem forgivable.

The guitar playing helped. Most of his solos evolved from choice single notes to an ecstatic strumming wail, producing a sense of tension and drama. And his rapport with the drummer Matt Abts, the keyboardist Danny Louis and the bassist Andy Hess felt rewardingly deep. But because Mr. Haynes went long on every tune, tedium occasionally set in.

So it was a relief when Mr. Haynes brought on other guitarists as foils: the versatile Jimmy Vivino on several tunes, as well as Cesar Rojas and David Hidalgo, both members of the veteran Los Angeles band Los Lobos. Nobody posed a serious challenge to Mr. Haynes, but they all nudged him in productive ways.

As an opener Los Lobos provided an interesting contrast to Gov’t Mule. Los Lobos drew heavily from their recent album “The Town and the City” and leaned on a smoldering sort of atmosphere. Mr. Hidalgo and Mr. Rojas took turns soloing and singing; there was no obvious star in the ranks.

Los Lobos’ set was far less dynamic than Gov’t Mule’s, and not nearly as free-flowing. But as the irresistible groove of “Chuco’s Cumbia” segued into the sinuous meditation of “The Valley,” a nifty spell was cast. Los Lobos had a perspective, and a sound, to call its own.

Then again they seemed to have the most fun on a cover of Buddy Holly’s “Not Fade Away.” And that was after Mr. Haynes had joined them onstage.

Last night was the best Mule show, or any show for that matter, that I have ever seen. Wow.

They played 4 hours 15 minutes - says a lot about a band.

After the show, we saw Devon Allman and Pedro Arevalo hanging outside and talked with them for a bit. Wondered why they didn't guest with the Mule if they were there, but decided not to ask, figured it was best that way.

Overall, in-f*cking-credible show - these guys rock.

to the Beacon. Anybody in the balcony?

Truly awesome show . The second set while highly entertaining I would have prefered 3 sets of Mule [ greedy effer aren't I] I marvel at Warren's own creative genius & also his ability to take other peoples music & make it his own! It's A Mans World was amazing. James Brown might have been, but Warren IS the hardest working man in the business.

The show was being videotaped last. Did anybody see the cameras the other nights? A DVD of the show would be fantastic!

Can't tell you how many people in the balcony cause I was sittting in the loge, but on a couple of occasions that place was rockin so it wasn't empty.

GREAT TIME WAS HAD BY ALL.

I guess the negative would be if MSG comes in now ruins "Our Little Piece Of Heaven". If so at least we were there for the end of the run

SOLD OUT For NYE - I'm am waiting for the photo of the marquee - and very close to sold out the night before. And the first night hit at or above 80%. Even the scalpers were happy.

NYC loves the Mule.

PS - I don't think the Beacon is going to be the way we would like once MSG comes in, though it may be an opportunity to make it better than it has been. It's a complicated discussion and not one for me right now.

I will say however, there was a large police presence last night. But more troubling was how many people got arrested over the 3 days for just taking a toke off the kind bud. I heard that they were bringing down van loads full of people and they got booked and put into the system.

My first reaction as a NYC resident is to move the show to a kinder venue in a kinder, easily accessible city (Atlanta perhaps?).

I don't care what you say but busting people - normal tax paying, law abiding people for pot is enough for another tea revolt here.

I don't like it and if it was my concert I would say NYC can kiss the money - GOOD BYE.

Think of all the money we bring to the area - the restaurants, the hotels, the subways and the stores - GOOD BYE - just because the men in blue and the Mayor insist on busting the regular Joe for a bit of weed.

I don't like that a lot of my friends have been arrested at this and other music events. It isn't fair because while pot is illegal, it should not remain illegal especially when alcohol is legal and it causes more social harm.

Ban them both or legalize them both. I am sick of my country and city being so hypocritical.



EXACTLY!

I felt like there was NO security presence last night at all - every single person was toking up it felt like to me. No pat down, nothing at all.

Also, I did see the cameras. Being in the loge, I saw two cameras on the stage. I also heard that there were cameras in the orchestra and upper balcony. From a post at the philzone...

quote:
...entire show filmed on at least 4 Canon XL-H1 high-definition cameras...I was told for a DVD and hired by mule, not a television station or so forth


So, get ready for a DVD

I'm equaly unhappy about the pending MSG /Doaln takeover. it's always going to be about the almighty dollar. So we as the fans are going to lose one way or another .

I will say however, there was a large police presence last night. But more troubling was how many people got arrested over the 3 days for just taking a toke off the kind bud. I heard that they were bringing down van loads full of people and they got booked and put into the system.
I was only there on Saturday night and it was very easy going both inside and out from what I saw.Definately more low key than a ABB show.

My first reaction as a NYC resident is to move the show to a kinder venue in a kinder, easily accessible city (Atlanta perhaps?).
If the Mule leaves the Beacon , someone else with take the dates, so only the NYC/ Metro are folks who are Mule /NYE regulars lose out. I'm not sure how much more accessable of a venue you want .The Beacon can be reached by bus, train or car from pretty far away. You also have 3 major airport less than 45 min from the City.

I don't care what you say but busting people - normal tax paying, law abiding people for pot is enough for another tea revolt here.
Not sure where these people are being busted, if it's outside on the street "around" the Beacon or on your way to the Beacon. It's your own damn fault. You can't wait until ya get to the show ? Do it inside and keep it on the DL. It's very rare that people get hassled once inside the Beacon. I've never heard of any stories about people getting arrested for smoking pot inside the Beacon. ( I clearly could be wrong )

I don't like it and if it was my concert I would say NYC can kiss the money - GOOD BYE.

Think of all the money we bring to the area - the restaurants, the hotels, the subways and the stores - GOOD BYE - just because the men in blue and the Mayor insist on busting the regular Joe for a bit of weed.

I don't like that a lot of my friends have been arrested at this and other music events. It isn't fair because while pot is illegal, it should not remain illegal especially when alcohol is legal and it causes more social harm.

Ban them both or legalize them both. I am sick of my country and city being so hypocritical.

It's the law and that's the deal . Seriously, don't call attention to yourself and more times than not. There will be no hassle.
They guys sitting behind me Saturday night were smoking a joint a few blocks from the Beacon, while walking to the show.They all got stopped and one guy who lied to the cops about having anymore "on him" got busted and locked up. he was out before the end of the show. Why couldn't they wait . Do you normaly smoke a joint while walking to dinner with friends on a Saturday night in the city ? Not likely. So why would ya do it tonight and why do you think it's ok ?
I've done my share of pot smoking, mostly in my college days,some 20 years ago. If I've smoked a joint since then, it might be alot.
I just don't understand why when there is a concert, all the normal laws should be put on hold.
We all know the drill, heavy police presense on concert nights, it's just like the local police that write more tickets at the end of the month to keep their "quotas" in check.

No need to argue , I could be way off with what I've seen and heard in the past. I wasn't try to be nasty with my opinions, I hope it didn't come off that way.

Our pot laws are hypocritical. That is the argument. You can say what ever you like about the issue. How you said it has nothing to do with my disagreement.

A lot of my friends are getting busted and I am not down with that. I am not into a free for all but I am not in agreement with pot smokers getting busted and drunk aholes being allowed to be all over the place.

I am sure there is another more responsive venue somewhere in this great country.

Have Mule will travel.

I don't like that a lot of my friends have been arrested at this and other music events. It isn't fair because while pot is illegal, it should not remain illegal especially when alcohol is legal and it causes more social harm.

Ban them both or legalize them both. I am sick of my country and city being so hypocritical.



EXACTLY!

Angela I like and respect you. But many of us are in NO position to travel to another city to see these shows and your idea to move the New Year's run to another city is the WORST I have ever heard. Nor do I think it will ever happen since Warren likes playing in his home town. I loved Friday and Saturday and regret that I could not rock in the Mule year last night. I am champing at the bit to download the three show run from Mule Tracks.

God bless Warren Haynes and Gov't Mule!

Doug

Our pot laws are hypocritical. That is the argument. You can say what ever you like about the issue. How you said it has nothing to do with my disagreement.

A lot of my friends are getting busted and I am not down with that. I am not into a free for all but I am not in agreement with pot smokers getting busted and drunk aholes being allowed to be all over the place.

I am sure there is another more responsive venue somewhere in this great country.

Have Mule will travel.


Drunk Aholes are busted with great regularity in NYC.
