Yesterday was the final day of the inaugural Hangout Festival and Trey Anastasio Band finished off the festival and a rain-soaked-and-delayed afternoon with a set full of most of the good stuff that we ever see TAB perform. Here’s the setlist via PT:
Set I: Gotta Jibboo, Push On Til the Day, The Devil Went Down To Georgia*, Burn That Bridge^, Money Love and Change, It Makes No Difference%, Alaska, Sailboat Man^, Sand, Valentine, Cayman Review, Plasma > Drifting, Black Dog

I got to watch most of the set from my couch as I recovered from the Bay to Breakers ragefest that rolled through SF yesterday. The “Jibboo” was tight, “Alaska” sounded pretty good, and the “Sailboat Man” song was novel at best. The rest of the set as a whole seemed like standard Trey fare and nothing for the legend books. The encore was an absolutely trainwrecked version of “First Tube,” too — so that didn’t help its case for any “set of the year” type accolades. With the sound of fireworks over head I’m not sure the band could actually hear where each other was at in the song. Still, the song almost always rages and it’s a perfect end to a music fest.
Kudos as always to iClips.net for hooking up the free and legal streams from the event. What did you guys think of the set?
