WSP's JB to sing N. Anthem

John Bell
On August 18, Widespread Panic's John Bell will sing the National Anthem at Atlanta's Turner Field before the Braves play the San Francisco Giants. Tune in at 4:35 p.m. for the fun.

And while we're talking about Panic, check out this acoustic performance by JB, Sunny, and Jimmy at the Griffith Observatory while the band was in L.A. over the summer. The trio did two improv performances of "Three Candles" and "C. Brown," watch the video at www.imeem.com/widespreadpanic.

Maybe he'll do a rap b/t the 'land of the free' and 'home of the brave' part.

Go Cubs! Damn Braves put them out of the playoffs twice in the last ten years. Will this game be on ESPN by any chance?

ThereThere you have obvisouly never seen Panic to say there is no energy at a show. UmphreyzMcgee that was New Years 06 and that was fucking awesome. JB is the man he did the National Anthem at the White Sox game in April when Panic was in Chicago. Did not make it to the game since the party from the night before was still raging!!

Seen WSP a few times, most recent at Rothbury...up close on left, and it just seemed like they were going through the routine of putting on a show, rather then truly enjoying themselves...just an opinion...either way chidodger, manny will be big time problem...The dreads is just the start.

Since this has now become a semi-sports discussion. If and if the Dodgers can somehow win the West in the worst division in basball (note the team in first place would be no better than 3rd place in any other division in baseball) they will surely be swept and humiliated by whomever it is they play. NL West is and has been for some time the worst division in baseball. If you like being the best of the worst then I guess go dodgers?

hope he's better than carl lewis & roseanne barr -- doubt it will top jerry, bobby & vince's acappella version at candlestick in the early 90's -- but good for him -- JB's a huge baseball fan!

Seriously if you don't like a band, why are you reading the article in the first place? Then even taking more time to comment poorly about the band?!?!!?? Are you so filled with unpleasantness and so narrow minded? Ignorant people blow my mind.

I would like to see the Twins go all the way, but lets face it.

The LA Angels of Anahiem from a city in the vacinity near by Los Angeles are going to be the champs.

Go JB. Widespread haters? Please stop clicking my links.. you suck.

I love WSP. Seen them only 5 times, all with Mikey. They were always good and loud, but i agree about the lack of energy. At least at that time, I was wishin' I was at a Phish show each time. I will still go back again, maybe Herring brought renewed energy, no offense.
