I won't do a long, detailed review, just wanted to say they were GREAT once again, and I've got a hotel room in SF all weekend and will be back tonight. I went up right after work and left a little early 'cause I was dog tired. Just wanted to say that new bassist Jorgen Carllson is OUTSTANDING. Would I say he's better than Andy Hess? Naw, I loved Andy's playing. But Carllson is an obvious monster. Here's the covers that I heard in an awesome setlist................hoping for a Pink Floyd set tonight.

She Said She Said
Tomorrow Never Knows
Dear Prudence
War Pigs (as a trio)
When The Music's Over
How Many More Times

There also was an inspiring, long version of The Deep End in the first set. Can't wait for tonight!

It's good to see "When the Music's Over" making into regular rotation on this tour. I'm not a Doors fan, but the version that was played last NYE for the Winter of Love was one of the greatest performances I've ever witnessed.

When The Music's Over was GREAT................but EVERY cover they did was great..........just another great performance.

One more Mule note: I really think that if he landed in a different time frame, maybe in The Jimi Hendrix Experience or Led Zeppelin, that Matt Abts might be remembered as one of the great rock drummers of all-time. One of the cool things about Matt is during his solo when he tosses the sticks for maybe 5 minutes and plays with his hands only. And I tell you, out of a sold out Fillmore, I did not see ONE person head for a beer or restroom break when the drum solo started.

sick set list.
If "When the Music's Over" is anything like 8/31, must have been outrageous.
Have fun tonight

Yes, as already posted, another great setlist, another great show.

My favorite segment, by far: For What It's Worth, leading into Kind of Bird. FWIW is of course a very subtle song, lots of silent spots in it. To do such a laid back, true-to-the-original version, and then segue into the mind-bending, torching jazz of Kind of Bird...............WOW!!!! is all I can really say. This band will caress you, make love to you with it's subtlety, then deliver such a sudden, musically astonishing knock-out punch...........just not many bands around (are there ANY?) who can touch these guys. When Kind of Bird was over, Warren had a big grin, and said "We haven't played that in awhile". Well, thank you for pulling it out is all I can say.............it was the highlight of the two night stand, at least for me.

And of course the Lesh segment was GREAT, and yes, Angela, the crowd when nuts when Warren introduced Phil. I'm not a Deadhead, never have been, but the Loser/Terrapin Station/Loser/Sugaree segment was awesome, and instrumentally terrific. And is if this band could not blow you away any more coming from a jazz angle, for their encore, in walks sax player Jeff Coffin of Bela Fleck and The Flecktones who had just played a gig right down the street at Yoshi's Jazz Club. I wanna tell you, Sco-Mule was just OFF THE HOOK!!!!!! Quite simply put, this band can go places that no other rock band can, with the exception of course of ABB.

To top it all off, we got a second encore of Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here, The Mule back in subtle mode. In short, I am just completely blown away by a tremendous two nights of music. I've seen them maybe 8 times now, and amazingly, they just continue to raise the bar a little bit each time. My friend Ray, a great percussionist, was with me, and said The Mule is flat out his favorite band. I hear ya, Mr. Ray, Sir!

I'd just like to say that not everyone who thinks Matt is a great drummer is mesmerized by his drum solo's. It's not a knock on his playing at all, but drum solo's in general put me to sleep(which is what happened in Wallingford this year). I also think that if a drummer is a good enough, then he or she doesn't need a drum solo to showcase their talent, because they are displaying their talent in every song of every show of every night....like Matt does.

And JaBuMa...let's not even talk about those solo's. I feel like I was stricken with seeing the longest one in history a couple years ago at Jones Beach in Liz Reed. The solo started, I went to the bathroom, on the way back from the bathroom bought a Snapple, got back from to my seat and had easily a 8 minute or so conversation with my friend, and the solo was still going on.
