For this year’s Halloween show, moe. asked fans to vote on what they should play at Jambands.com. Among the choices was We Got The Party – a Miley Cyrus song. Collegehumor.com got wind of the poll and led a number of their readers to vote for the Miley tune. moe. gave the people what they want and busted out We Got The Party along with a spot-on cover of Phish’s Stash.
Other covers included Tenacious D’s Fuck Her Gently, Paul Simon’s You Can Call Me Al, Pink Floyd’s Echoes and the Grateful Dead’s Eyes of the World and Dark Star. The group also busted out the rarely played Jim Loughlin-sung Farmer Ben.
