On Friday night, moe. opened up a two-night stand at one of their homes away from home, Saranac Brewery in Utica, NY, and the band ended up collaborating with a fellow Upstate New Yorker, guitarist Mike Gantzer of Aqueous, one of last night’s supporting acts.
The sit in came in the middle of the second set, when Gantzer emerged to help out on the classic moe. track “Mexico.” Gantzer has guested with the band previously, and he and members of moe. and Aqueous have been known to form supergroups like moe.queous and, more recently, a Pink Floyd tribute collaboration at Sherman, NY’s Night Lights Music Festival.
See last night’s setlist below as it appears in our Box Scores section, along with video from the second set’s “Prestige Worldwide” via the band’s Facebook page. moe. will return to the Saranac stage tonight for round two.
