"They say it takes hardship, boy
To let you love the rest
Sometimes underneath the load
Is where I show my best
Go, put your work clothes on
Go and leave your mark"

Widespread Panic * Grand Targhee, Alta, WY * 7/1/11 Highlights


I just got back from a road trip to Wyoming, where I spent 2 weeks visiting Yellowstone and Grand Tetons National Park and got to catch 3 epic nights of WSP at Grand Targhee. It was a long 4th of July weekend full of sunshine, snow, camping, friends, starry nights and soaring, heartful jams.

I plan on releasing
several podcasts over the next couple of weeks featuring highlights from the Targhee run. This first podcast in the series condensing the first night on July 1, 2011 to my favorite songs and jams of the night. I know, I know -- for some people, editing down a full show to highlights is nearly sacrilege. For those listeners, the full shows are available for purchase at www.livewidespreadpanic.com/catalog or http://panicstream.com/vault/11.html.



Setlist: Ain’t Life Grand > Who Do You Belong To? * LDGTB * Use Me * You Should Be Glad * Ain't No Use > Drumz > Ride Me High > Pilgrims * Chainsaw City * E: City of Dreams

Get ready for some amazing jams, funky grooves and southern soul in these transmissions, and we hope you enjoy them as much as we do! Panic is sounding frickin’ awesome 25 years later...no small feat.

Interesting to note that Panic opened up their very first show with Buffalo Springfield’s “For What It’s Worth” 25 years ago (almost to the day) at the Mad Hatter Ballroom on 2/6/86!



Here’s a review of the 2-night stand, from Honest Tune: The Southern Journal of Jam:

“How many bands can you think of that have made it 25 years, continuing to enamor their fans?  The first groups that likely come to mind are bands as highly regarded as the Grateful Dead, Allman Brothers Band, or the Rolling Stones; both of whom have persevered through the loss of key members, addiction, health issues, and an ever changing standard of what is considered "good" music.  The lesser known Widespread Panic is a recent addition to this list and in their 25 years together, they have experienced momentous highs and endured through unthinkable lows.  To the delight of a nation of devoted fans, "The Boys" who met in Athens, GA back in 1986 chose to celebrate the occasion by playing three unforgettable shows at two historic venues.”

More commentary after the jump...
