Watching Outformation....

What a world of wonders we live in...
I can watch Outformation play on a live webcast from the stages of the Pour House in Charleston.
I write this as I listen to Sam's lead on the final song of the night, Burned Faceless (Smoke and Burn).

Well it's been 3 years since I last saw your face-
Or maybe it was just a delay of 33 seconds!

PanicCast 17 - Widespread Panic in NOLA

City of New Orleans Special
(aka the GREAT cover song review)

This is by no means a true 'best of' New Orleans - but enjoy some selections from the Crescent City.

July 28, 1994 House of Blues, New Orleans, LA
I Walk on Guilded Splinters

Novermber 22, 1993 Tipitina's, New Orleans, LA
Just Kissed My Baby

October 28, 2000 Kiefer Lakefront Arena, New Orleans, LA
Junco Partner >
Mardi Gras in New Orleans
Lawyers, Guns and Money
Red Hot Mama >
Soul Kitchen

I found a great interview where JoJo talks about this version of Junco > Mardi Gras HERE

The 10/28/00 show fetaures some great Panic moments. JB's flub of Junco Partner leads to a spirited Mardi Gras jam; yet another example of how the band's philosophy of improvisation and allowing songs to be in the moment can create some unexpected magic. The bust outs of Lawyers Guns and Money, Trouble and Soul Kitchen almost overshadow the fine Red Hot Mama > Sharon. I find myself thinking of this show when I think of New Orleans - probably because of the Mardi Gras jam.

May the spirit of the music of New Orleans and, more importantly, the entire gulf coast live forever.
