Dispatches from Mountain Jam

Ozomatli just took the stage at the third-annual Mountain Jam, and six more bands are ready to play behind them. Later today it’ll be Earl Greyhound, Umphrey’s McGee, New Monson, G. Love, Tea Leaf Green and a second night of Gov’t Mule. Of course, you can watch all this transpire live on the official, crystal-clear webcast over on the Mountain Jam site. Dyn-o-mite.

Day One seemed like a smashing success, by all accounts, with Gov’t Mule following great sets from RAQ, the New Orleans Social Club and several other bands. The Mule setlist looked something like this — and stay tuned to the Mountain Jam Blog for more details on the festival’s performances:

Set 1
Creep, 32/20 Blues, A Million Miles From Yesterday, Thorazine Shuffle, Jam (?), Rocking Horse, Banks of the Deep End, Unring the Bell> Shakedown Street tease > Blind Man in the Dark

Set 2
If Loving You Is Wrong, I’m a Ram > Love Me DO > I’m a Ram, Brighter Days, Like Flies > Drums, No Quarter > Bad Little Doggie > Brand New Angel

Well, this was quick: You can already click here to download RAQ’s daytime set from the first day of the festival. But, and this is just a suggestion, how ’bout we just sit down and watch it together right here…the video of RAQ starts about six minutes in, and to say that start out hotter than a half-fucked fox in a forest fire would be a dramatic understatement. Damn, that’s badder than hot.


There’s also a full day of music tomorrow, including the requisite Michael Franti appearance and the headlining Phil & Friends set (with Warren Haynes AND John Scofield). As for today, I’d pay particular attention to the Umphrey’s and Tea Leaf Green sets — Scotty and the boys saw them down in Philly last night and both bands allegedly ripped the city a new arse.
