Last Week’s Sauce: November 9th – 15th

Artist & Title: Joan Osborne & The Holmes Brothers- Brokedown Palace
Date & Venue: 2009-11-10 Shea’s Performing Arts Center, Buffalo NY
Taper & Show Download: Lenny Stubbe

Joan Osborne gives a great introduction to this Grateful Dead classic, explaining it is her all-time favorite but that she could never convince The Dead to let her sing it. I played with the levels so you could hear the introduction a bit better, but you’ll notice a somewhat harsh volume swell, what can I say? An audio engineer – I am not. Osborne next plays at Symphony Space in NYC on December 4th.


Artist & Title: Lettuce – By Any Sheemans Necessary
Date & Venue: 2009-11-14 Bear Creek Music Festival, Live Oak FL
Taper & Show Download: Nick Burlison

Down at the Bear Creek Music Festival, a lineup quite simply dominated by funk acts, Lettuce welcomed Derek Trucks and Kofi Burbridge to the stage for this extended romp that features basically every member of the band. Lettuce next plays December 5th at New York’s Hudson Valley Resort & Spa with Chapter 2 and Break Science.

Artist & Title: Medeski Martin & Wood – Bubblehouse
Date & Venue: 2009-11-15 The Westcott Theater, Syracuse NY
Taper & Show Download: W Clark

MMW has been showing up in Last Week’s Sauce for a while now, and normally I am featuring tracks off The Radiolarian Series – the new shit if you will. This week I am choosing to make a nod in the direction of old-school MMW, the crowd-pleasing Bubblehouse that they used in the encore slot this past week in Syracuse. The band is currently in the Midwest, playing tonight at The Vogue in Indianapolis before making their way back east again.

The year is wrapping up with a bang for Umphrey’s McGee. As ScottyB has already recapped, UM had a weekend for the record books at South Burlington’s Higher Ground welcoming Mike Gordon for an extended jam on In The Kitchen, a 3-piece horn section (featuring Jennifer Hartswick, Dave Grippo and Bryan McNamara), and capped their Higher Ground run off with the debut of Heart’s Barracuda with JHa on lead vocals. But before all that started they were up in Canada on Wednesday and welcomed Jamie “Guitar” Shields to the stage for this take on the crowd-favorite Wappy Sprayberry. UM plays tonight at Mr. Small’s in Pittsburgh and closes their tour Friday/Saturday with two nights at DC’s 9:30 Club.
