Widespread Panic just finished up their final show at this year’s Panic en la Playa (the ocho!) featuring another star-studded guest list joining them to help headline the evening, much like nights one, two and three.
Tonight’s guest list even got a leaked a bit early via the internet thanks to George Porter Jr.‘s Facebook page, and sure enough the man himself from The Meters joined the Panic crew with Eric Krasno and Ivan Neville for some jams in the band’s second and final set of the run. Some of our faves made an appearance in the first set, too, with “Chilly Water” opening the show and a “Disco > Pilgrims” section in the middle of the set.
