Phish bassist Mike Gordon recently wrapped a solo tour he and his band embarked upon in support of his new album OGOGO. Professionally-shot video of the band’s finale in Boulder, Colorado as well as footage from an in-store performance from earlier that same day has surfaced.
The Boulder Theater hosted Gordon and his band last Saturday, October 14. The bassist and guitarist Scott Murawski, drummer John Kimock, keyboardist Robert Walter and percussionist Craig Myers opened their second show in Boulder with the OGOGO tracks “Whirlwind” and “Victim.” Next came “Cruel World” from Murawski’s other group Max Creek. A take on the recently added cover of Tame Impala’s “Mind Mischief” was followed by the recent single “Steps” the Gordon original that’s entered Phish’s repertoire, “Say Something.” The OGOGO cut “Go Away” closed out the opening set.
Mike’s final set of the tour began with the OGOGO closing track “Victim 3D” followed by fellow LP selections “Marissa” and “Pendulum.” Next up was “Peel” from Gordon’s 2014 album Overstep that worked in a performance of the newly added original “Trapezoidal Sunshine.” The Flaming Lips’ “Are You a Hypnotist??” kept the set rolling as Overstep’s “Tiny Little World” and Aerosmith’s “Sweet Emotion” closed out the second half. A final OGOGO tune, the upbeat “Let’s Go” served as the encore and final song of the tour. Watch pro-shot video of the full show below:
