Locationally clinging to the Pacific Northwest, Trey Anastasio Band trekked down from Marymoor Park in Redmond, Wash., through the picturesque Columbia River Gorge for a Sunday night performance at the outdoor venue McMenamins Edgefield just miles from the City of Roses. The Phish frontman’s two-set show featured a bust out of “Bug,” which arrived after a late-June fan sit-in with 7-year-old Jovi Crusen at The Frederik Meijer Gardens Amphitheater in Grand Rapids, Mich. Read the complete story here.
The Sunday night performance began with the instrumental “Olivia” and “Gotta Jibbo,” giving the ensemble time to warm up their instruments before working into “Set Your Soul Free.” Anastasio, alongside drummer Russ Lawton, keyboardist Ray Paczkowski, trumpeter Jennifer Hartswick, trombonist Natalie Cressman, saxophonist James Casey, percussionist Cyro Baptista, and bassist Dezron Douglas filled the stage as they worked through Anastasio’s solo material on “Pigtail,” “Drifting” and “Valentine.” TAB’s first set also included Phish favorites like “46 Days” and “No Men in No Man’s Land.”
For their second set, the group arrived on stage for a 10-minute rendition of “Sand,” which saw Anastasio take a solo before the band returned to his earlier work on “Burlap Sack and Pumps.” The latter gave Douglas a moment to flex his skills and Casey time to follow up with an instrumental interlude. The eight-piece landed on Anastasio’s most recent release next, performing “hey stranger” off mercy for only the third time.
The night continued with a take on “The Moma Dance,” capped with tour debuts of “Last Tube,” “Night Speaks to a Woman,” and ultimately “Bug,” which was played by Trey Anastasio Band for the first time since 2011. The group continued with “Tuesday,” followed by “A Life Beyond a Dream” and a set ending “Ghost.” Finally, they ran through “Everything’s Right” for their encore to conclude their time in Oregon.
Next, the band will travel to the Gem State for a Tuesday night show at Revolution Concert House and Event Center in Garden City, Idaho. Tickets are still available for tonight’s performance and can be purchased here.
