Gov't Mule

When: Fri., Sept. 12, 7:30 p.m. 2014

Originally birthed as a side project of the Allman Brothers Band by guitarist and singer Warren Haynes, Gov’t Mule maintains that long-standing Southern rock tradition and filters it through improv-friendly jam band sensibilities. Over 10 studio albums and hundred of shows, band members have proven their chops. Shout!, a double album from 2013, features each song twice (once with Haynes on vocals, once with a guest like Elvis Costello or Dr. John) and picks up the mantle of Mule’s high-intensity jam-based songwriting. Going back in the discography a bit, Dose stands out as another terrific entry point to the band. Much of that album is dirty groove-based rock ’n’ roll (“Game Face,” “Thelonius Beck”). There’s also a great cover of “She Said, She Said” on that one. (Sandy)
