Panic in the Park: Widespread Panic, 7.1.07 San Diego

July started with a bang this year, with Widespread Panic bringing its jambased rock and roll to the Viejas Concerts in the Park venue in San Diego.   The weather is fantastic, a hot dry evening, with the sun setting behind the stage.


Shortly after the sun set, the band took the stage and the show began. While Widespread Panic has been around for 21 years, and have never repeated a set list, they suffered a huge loss in 2002. Widespread Panic lost lead guitar player Michael Houser to cancer.


At the show tonight, I finally got to see the “new” lead guitar player, Jimmy Herring. I have been photographing Jimmy for about ten years now, from Jazz is Dead all the way to the Dead. It was good to see Jimmy, John Bell, Dave Schools, John Hermann, Todd Nance and Domingo S. Ortiz blaze through a great two sets of music.


Set I: Weak Brain, Narrow Mind, Pleas > Love Tractor, Pickin' Up The Pieces, Weight Of The World, Don't Wanna Lose You, Flicker, She Caught The Katy > Rock

Set II: Let's Get Down To Business > Thought Sausage, Second Skin > Bear's Gone Fishin' > Impossible > Me And The Devil Blues, Good People > Drums > Bowlegged Woman > Chilly Water

Encore: Blue Indian, Give
