[Wed. 2/20 8pm] fans started arriving down in Mexico today for the start of the 2019 run, three nights at the Barceló Maya Resort and the band’s third time doing an event like this at the same location.

We’ve already seen a great collection of photos start to hit social media, and this time fans each got their own towel and Fishman donut floaties, which you can see in this great image below courtesy of the band. No more fighting for these bad boys.

The soundcheck today featured (we’re told) a few of the composed sections of “You Enjoy Myself” and a nice crowd gathered and gave it a listen. They also did the Kasvot Växt classic “Turtle in the Clouds” and the always welcome and all-too-rare still “Plasma”.

Check out the setlist below. Looks like we’re in for a treat this weekend.

As a reminder, everything will be webcast live via the band’s webcast platform Live and you can head over to their site to pre-order and get yourself locked and loaded for the stream when everything starts on Thursday.

We’ll have setlists and videos and all that good stuff from the run as it happens so check back here for more as the weekend progresses.

Mike is even hanging out with his Dad on the trip. Awwwww.
