Gov’t Mule rolled into Holmdel, NJ for the second ‘Dark Side of the Mule’ mini-tour with the Avett Brothers and Magpie Salute. After a rocking set from Magpie and a mellow set from the Avett Brothers, the Mule thundered in with a set opening “Thorazine Shuffle.”
After “Banks of the Deep End,” Warren and company launched into the Pink Floyd catalogue for the remainder of the show. “One of these Days” was the perfect palette cleanser and set the stage for a majestic night of Mule flavored Floyd.
While most of Dark Side of the Moon was covered, the Mule threw in other Floyd treats like “Echoes (Part 1)” and a massive “Shine on You Crazy Diamond” set closer. The Avett Brothers, Marc Ford, John Hogg, Ron Holloway and Torbjörn “T-Bone” Andersson all lent their talents at various parts of the set. The back-up singers included Machan Taylor, Mini Carlsson & Sophia Ramos.
