Gov't Mule - Beacon Theater

I took my son last night to see da Mule at the Beacon. I go every year to one of the nights of the NYE run (just never NYE) and started taking him last year. We we lucky enough to grab a pair last year for the acoustic show at the Angel Orensanz Center, but this was his first full on Mule concert. The band was heavy as usual and it seems that Warren has shaken off the effects of playing in the Dead (love the Grateful Dead, but this new version not so much). Warren plays with everyone but he is at his best in Gov't Mule. A bunch of new songs which were great and some classics. All in all another great show. I've been seeing them since 1997 and this is one New Year's tradition that I hope will continue for many years to come.
