On Saturday night fans of the jamband moe., lovingly referred to as moe.rons, lined up outside the doors of the Grace Pavilion at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds for a rocking two-set show.
Managing editor Jen Bernstein introduced the band asking the pot-loving crowd, “Who’s high? Who want’s to get too fucking high?”
moe. kicked off first set with “The Road” and, nodding to the state, segued the new “Calyphornya” into the instrumental “Californ-I-A.”
Bassist Rob Derhak led the band through the bombastic “Runaway Overlude,” followed by guitarist Al Schnier’s grooving “She” to close the set.
A fun hoedown in “Punchline” started second set, but the true highlight of the show came during “Recreational Chemistry” -- a love song about weed.
Referencing their new album No Guts, No Glory, moe. Percussionist Jim Loughlin ripped through the trippy, psychedelic sounding “Same Ol Story” on vibraphone. The guitar dueling and face-stealing “Brent Black” ended the rockin second set. Not ready to end a most heady first day of the Cannabis Cup, moe. Treated attendees to the guitar shredding “Tailspin.”
Thanks moe. for coming to the Cup and rawkin’ out!
