We were thrilled and delighted to have Warren Haynes sit on 11/16/12 at The Brooklyn Bowl. He joined us for our own “Catching Fireflies” and an encore of Dr. Dre and Eminem’s “Forgot About Dre”. Enjoy.
We regret to inform you that due to a family emergency we’re going to have to postpone our shows this weekend in Knoxville, TN, Asheville, NC & Raleigh, NC. We’re working on dates to get us back there soon, and we’ll announce those as soon as we can. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and we appreciate your understanding. Our tour to the northeast will now kick off on Monday in Wilmington, NC, then go through Waynesboro, VA, Washington DC, Philadelphia, PA, Brooklyn, NY, Albany, NY & New Haven, CT. Info on those shows is on our tour page.
Due to travel schedule conflicts we are swapping set times with K’Naan (the excellent Somali-American rapper who we bump frequently in the van) on Saturday. K’Naan now starts at 2:15 pm and we will hit the Main Stage at 4:00 pm.
The Gov’t Mule tour for us was quite literally a dream come true. To top it all off, there were several sit-ins over the tour’s last two nights in San Francisco and Reno. At the Warfield in San Fran, our own Rob Ingraham (Sax) and Ed Williams (Pedal Steel Guitar) joined the Mule for several songs. In Reno, Warren Haynes joined us during our set’s finale for “Catching Fireflies”. Ed and Rob were brought out again throughout the second set. The rest of The Revivalists got to join the party to conclude the tour with what amounted to a 2-band jam for “Take Me To The River”.
In 2004 Pope John Paul Jones received world renowned break dancers in the Vatican. The results were bizarre, wonderful and also comical. We took that footage and hastily set it to the music of our own “Chase’s House”. Enjoy.
