In addition to offering the live debut of several tunes from their upcoming album Crossing Lines, Vida Blue’s first live show since 2004 featured a few surprise covers of Phish and Pink Floyd.
Vida Blue opened their 9:30 Club gig with “Most Events Aren’t Planned” and “CJ3” off the band’s 2002 self-titled LP, before playing the live debut of “Where Did It Go” and “Real Underground Soul Sound” off Crossing Lines.
As the evening continued, Vida Blue’s single set was dotted with even more Crossing Lines debuts, as the band played every cut off the LP, namely “Phaidon,” “Analog Delay,” “Dry Spell,” “Maybe,” “Weepa” and “If I Told You.”
The band also tossed in a version of Pink Floyd’s “Sheep” for good measure.
They encored with “Cars” by Gary Numan as well as their first-ever take on the McConnell-penned Phish original “I Always Wanted It This Way.” Vida Blue’s final tune of the evening was “Electra Glide.”
