[Concert Review] Mike Gordon, Barrymore Theatre, Nov. 17th

Mike Gordon Barrymore Theatre, Nov. 17th, more info at trueendeavors.com Mike Gordon and his band are phenomenal musicians and his concert was a contagious dance-fest.  The spirit of the mota was in the air, both literally and figuratively, but that's something that just comes with any semblance of Phish.  Almost invariably all of their songs end up in long jam sessions that are like ecstasy for your ears. New Album: Gordon released his new album "Moss" in October and a lot of those songs were part of the performance. My favorite song of the night: "Cities".  This is a cover of the Talking Heads song and it was awesome.  The piano player was really good and he could play FAST.   They also did "Soulfood Man" and I thought it was excellent as well.   Here's a video of the song "Cities" from last year when they were at they Barrymore: Lights... The light show was fantastic.  You got spiraling visceral in-your-face lights of blue, red, green and purple that were really cool.  The effect of lights and music and mood allows you get to get lost in the melodies of the songs. Venue: I feel the Barrymore is a good place to have a concert like this.  There are seats available and you can stand at the front and dance to the music if you want. The Crowd: This was a real eclectic bunch of people from all different ages.  My favorite crowd moment in the show was when one guy lit up a 'cigarette' and he was smoking and one of the security people went up to him and said, "You have to put that out."  The guy looks at the security person with a deeply blank stare, looks down at this cigarette inquisitively furrowing his brow, and then asks this person, "Why?" Overall: This was an enjoyable concert that would be fun for a lot of different people.  The jam sessions are extraordinary and it feels like Mike Gordon has a real passion for all kinds of interesting sounds. -Soren Nieminen

The Grid -> Makisupa, with Swingtown teases, was the highlight for me. We all knew Mike could drop bass bombs, but that guitarist could play. Man.
