Widespread Panic Welcomes Members Of Yonder Mountain

Jam stalwarts Widespread Panic and Yonder Mountain String Band teamed up last night at Kansas City’s Starlight Theatre, where members of the latter helped the former close out the evening.

Yonder opened the show with a set that included “Casualty,” “End Is Not In Sight” and “Landfall,” among other tunes. Then Widespread Panic came out for a 110-minute set that started with the inventive “Space Wrangler” > “Porch Song” > “Space Wrangler” sequence. The Georgia rockers mixed songs from throughout their career including the relatively new “Street Dogs For Breakfast” which is the title track of their forthcoming studio album.

For the encore, Widespread Panic welcomed the two newest members of Yonder –Allie Kral and Jacob Joliff -to help out on “Chunk Of Coal” and a cover of “Fixin’ To Die.” Widespread Panic now heads to Colorado for this year’s Red Rocks three-night stand, while YMSB plays Memphis tonight.
