moe. and Blues Traveler brought their All Roads Runaround Tour with G. Love to Texas on Friday evening for the first of three shows in the state that will close out the collaborative tour this weekend. Friday’s performance at Houston’s White Oak Music Hall featured the three acts once again coming together for a special collaborative set comprising band originals and choice covers.
Before moe.’s night-closing headlining set, which rounded out with an encore that featured their cover of The Band’s “Up on Cripple Creek,” all members of the band, plus their collaborators in Blues Traveler, came out for the in-between set that opened with Blues Traveler’s “Yours.” The set also included the moe. staple “Happy Hour Hero,” plus covers of Steely Dan’s “Reelin’ in the Years,” Neil Young’s “Down By the River” and Sublime’s “What I Got,” which featured a harmonica standoff between G. Love and BT frontman John Popper.
