Serving up two jam-packed sets, Widespread Panic celebrated 4/20 at the aptly-titled SweetWater 420 Festival in Atlanta on Saturday night.
The weather was certainly a bit colder than expected – band members and fans alike were bundled up for the 3 hour outing – but, musically, Widespread Panic brought the heat almost immediately. They followed an opening “All Time Low” with an extensive “Surprise Valley”> “Red Hot Mama”> “Pleas”> “Who Do You Belong To?”> “Surprise Valley” segment. WSP continued on with fan favorites “Hatfield” and “Holden Oversoul,” before closing the first half with “Sell Sell”> “Love Tractor.”
“We’ll be back in two shakes,” singer-guitarist John Bell told the crowd.
Set two was equally rowdy, starting with “Pigeons,” “Travelin’ Light” and going deep through a “Greta” that segued into Talking Heads’ “Life During Wartime.” The favorites kept coming with “Ribs and Whiskey,” “Rebirtha” and “Tall Boy.”
The second set ended with “Big Wooly Mammoth”> “Chilly Water,” and the band encored with a pairing of Van Morrison’s “And It Stoned Me” with Bloodkin’s “Makes Sense to Me.”
Widespread Panic will play another full, two-set show at the event on Sunday, April 21.
