Widespread Panic's lighting rig has been at a consistent level of awesome for the last several years now. But they just may have stumbled on a new use for it lately.
They'd been utilizing three suspended LCD screens to flash some incredible poster images all night (some with trippy animation). Deep in the second set, during a dirty "Arleen", they flashed a particular set of images that looked instantly familiar. Check out the image above.
It finally clicked, they were showing the graphics from the Chicago run's triptych poster by Jeff Wood of Zen Mystic studio. The prints are available at the shows (350 cut each night, 375 uncut).
How's that for a subliminal message? Here's the complete set.
As for the show, a nice mix of rare covers ("Sharon" opener, "Hard Rain", "No Sugar", "Dear Mr. Fantasy"), old favorites (the "Chilly" > "Parsons" > "Chilly" sandwich, "I Am Not Alone"), and just a hint of the newer stuff ("Cease Fire" and "Jamais Vu" as the centerpiece of the first set).
We'll have more on the entire run after it ends, so check back. As for now. Have a listen.
