My Morning Jacket’s One Big Holiday destination event heated up Saturday night with full performances of two of the band’s studio albums: It Still Moves and Z.
MMJ’s Saturday night setlist antics followed the trend they set on night one where the Kentucky quintet surprised fans by playing their first two records.
Night two of One Big Holiday kicked off with It Still Moves opener and longtime MMJ live staple “Mahgeetah,” and moved swiftly through the album’s tracklist, playing the event’s namesake song “One Big Holiday” and ending with the band’s first performance of “One in the Same” since October 2010. Preservation Hall Jazz Band also lent their horns to “Dancefloors,” the aforementioned “One Big Holiday” and “Easy Morning Rebel.”
Set two saw My Morning Jacket dip into more psychedelic territory with 2005’s Z. Interestingly, the LP’s first track “Wordless Chorus,” made its first live appearance since last year’s One Big Holiday (2/4/2017), and as the set went onward fans tapped into rocking tracks like “What A Wonderful Man” and more sentimental fare like set/album closer “Dondante.”
Since they had completed both records by the end of set two, My Morning Jacket encored with “Cobra” off their 2002 Chocolate and Ice EP.
