ALO :: 2.22.14 :: The Fillmore :: San
Check out a recap and the setlist after Susan's photos...
Bay Area favorites ALO ended this year's Tour D'Amour run with a pair of
performances at the historic Fillmore in San Francisco on Friday and Saturday nights. On
Saturday night the band delivered two high-impact sets filled with beloved originals and
fun covers. Roots-rockers Rainbow Girls opened the festivities of Saturday's
finale, while Fred Torphy played a pair of impromptu sets in the venue's Poster
Room - one of which featured Tea Leaf Green keyboardist Trevor Garrod.
Speaking of Tea Leaf, both Garrod and guitarist Josh Clark - who's celebrating a
birthday today - sat in with ALO during the second set on Saturday. Clark emerged along
with all of Rainbow Girls for a cover of The Arrows (though you're probably more familiar
with Joan Jett's version) "I Love Rock 'n' Roll," while Garrod helped out on "Storms &
Hurricanes." Other covers of note included an instrumental take on "My Favorite Things"
worked into the "Shapeshifter" opener, Van Morrison's "He Ain't Give You None" (in a style
similar to those of Jerry Garcia's solo projects) in between
parts of "Try" and a late-in-the-second set "Everybody Wants To Rule The World" (Tears For
Fears). Next up for ALO is a pair of dates with Jack Johnson this May.
Set One: Shapeshifter > My Favorite Things > Shapeshifter, Walls of Jericho, Spectrum,
Combat Zone > Try > He Ain't Give You None > Try, Cowboys and Chorus Girls, State of
