Trey Anastasio Band Concludes Tour-Opening Run At Capitol Theatre
Guitarist Trey Anastasio brought his Trey Anastasio Band ensemble back to The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York on Saturday for the second of two sold-out shows at the historic venue. TAB switched up the setlist completely from Friday’s tour opener as they played a different mix of covers and originals.
Anastasio and the band opened with “Drifting” ahead of “Magilla,” an instrumental written by his Phish bandmate Page McConnell. “Sometime After Sunset” was one of three songs from 2015’s Paper Wheels fit into last night’s first set as the opening stanza closed with album tracks “Lever Boy” and “Bounce.” TAB classics “Alive Again” and “Last Tube” also appeared in the first set along with a series of four covers in a row: “O-o-h Child” (The Five Stairsteps), “1977” (Ana Tijoux), “It Makes No Difference” (The Band) and “Small Axe.” (Bob Marley)
TAB kicked off the second set with lengthy versions of “Money, Love & Change” and “The Way I Feel.” Saturday’s second set rolled on with a pair of songs from the 70 Volt Parade Days, “Tuesday” and “Goodbye Head,” split up with Phish’s “Ocelot.” Anastasio then led “Architect” ahead of covers of Charlie Daniel’s “The Devil Went Down To Georgia” and Jimmy Webb’s “MacArthur Park.” Though “Ether Sunday” needed a re-start when Trey picked up a sign for the song in the crowd, he later used the tune as an opportunity to introduce the band members. “First Tube” closed out the second set, while Jennifer Hartswick sang lead of Led Zeppelin’s “Black Dog” as the evening’s encore. Next up for TAB is a performance in Charlotte on April 20.
