My Morning Jacket continues to dig deep into their repertoire of both originals and covers
for their time in Mexico. Of note, the Tennessee Fire track "Picture Of You" was
performed for only the third time since 2010 and MMJ's two sets also included somewhat
rare originals "Old September Blues," "Honest Man" and "The Bear," mixed in among classics
like "Off The Record," "It Beats 4 U" and "Gideon." Cover wise, the band treated fans to
versions of Elton John's "Rocket Man" and "Oh, Sweet Nuthin!" by The Velvet Underground
before the guest parade began.
Pres Hall, who offered a set of their own prior to MMJ taking the stage, came out towards
the middle of the second set for "Holdin' On To Black Metal." Weir then emerged to join
Jim James and Co. for a cover of "Dear Prudence"
by The Beatles. Both Weir and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band proceeded to help out on
Berry's "You Never Can Tell" and Al Johnson's "Carnival Time." Pres Hall stuck around for
"Move On Up" by Curtis Mayfield.
