"You're not gonna get rid of me that easily," boasted bassist Rob Derhak, as he addressed the assembly at the Capitol Theatre. It was the first show back with moe. since fighting and defeating cancer.
Yeah... he's pretty grateful, and so were the fans, who slapped him five and celebrated his return. enthusiastically.
And what better way to welcome back the whole affair than kicking off the festivities with their most beloved song, "Rebubula". Check out a video or the return as well as a touching recap video that includes the entirety of Rob's heartfelt speech.
Adam Miszewski has been gracious to share his excellent photography with Tomorrow's Verse. moe. has long been among his favorites and the love comes through his lens as well.
Friday's show featured two debuts ("What Can I Say", "LL3") and monstrous takes on "Silver Sun" and a "Moth"/"Meat" sandwich.
Saturday had a couple of additional debuts ("I Can Never Remember", "New Hope For The New Year") and a little Grateful Dead jamming during "Opium" as well.
