“Drowned” -> “Rock & Roll” – PNC Bank Arts Center, Holmdel, NJ 6/29/00

This combo of classic covers was requested relentlessly this past week on Twitter, and it’s no mystery why. The band is clearly locked down and primed from the first bars of “Drowned”, and the jam moves effortlessly from idea to idea, never losing direction or purpose, before the band crafts an astonishingly impeccable segue into “Rock & Roll”. This version is a mustang – short from nose to tail but muscular, quick, and strong willed — owing in no small part to the rhythm section’s relentless propulsion throughout.
