Last night, Gov’t Mule brought its By A Thread 2010 Tour to the Canopy Club in Champaign, IL. Jackie Greene opened the night and later joined the Mule on stage near the close of the evening. Following the final music of Gov’t Mule’s second set, a run from the signature song “Mule” into a “Jungle Boogie” Jam and then back into “Mule,” the group exited only to to return with Greene in tow. He sat in for the two song encore, which offered covers of “Sugaree” and “After Midnight.”

Greene will open for the quartet again this evening at Chicago’s House of Blues for the Dare 2 Dream Benefit.
