Reviews: Mike Gordon Band @ Brooklyn Bowl w/ Photos [Hidden Track]

[Photo by Jeremy Gordon]

On a spring evening that saw hail, freezing rain, thunder and lightning envelop New York City, the Mike Gordon Band played their second of two sold-out shows at Brooklyn Bowl. The Phish bassist’s current five-piece “solo” band first started performing together in 2008 and the payoff of having five lengthy tours under their belts is paying major dividends in terms of tightness and the size of the repertoire. The MGB’s second Brooklyn Bowl show, while not mind-blowing, displayed a high level of engagement, creativity and the willingness to take risks that Phish fans love.

Cactus: Vic Wooten Sits In With The Mike Gordon Band [Hidden Track]

Two of our favorite bassists joined forces last night at the Belly Up in Aspen, where Vic Wooten of The Flecktones sat in with the Mike Gordon Bandfor the Phish original Meat, a cover of Sailin’ Shoes by Little Feat and the Tom Cleary-written Crumblin’ Bones. Wooten has a long history with Gordon, having first guested with Phish for most of the second set in Salt Lake City, Utah on August 21, 1993 and then again on July 9, 1997 in Lyon, France.
