Burlington: Trey Anastasio – After The Flood [Burlington Free Press]

Trey, normally a loquacious fellow, didn’t speak a whole lot during the show, but did note that he, Markellis and drummer Russ Lawton played the second-ever show at Higher Ground, in the old Winooski location 13 years ago. ”Our next song will be a 13-year-long jam,” Trey said, and the crowd cheered. Instead, he and the band launched into what he called a “world premiere,” a tune called “Snake Head Thumb,” which began with a bluesy guitar intro befitting a song with a name like that and the esoteric lyric “There’s a man I know with a snake head thumb/Just walk by and your body goes numb.”
