Today marks the first day of Jam In The Dam 2012 at the Melkweg in Amsterdam. Earlier this afternoon we posted Joshua Bogen’s Jam In The Dam Diary about his arrival in Holland and last night’s pre-party. We expect to have his journal entry and Jon Derow’s photos from Day One up tomorrow, but in the mean time we wanted to fill our readers in on Mike Gordon’s first set of 2012.

According to our friend Jen Bernstein of Nycjamgal Live Music, Cactus and his five-piece band played a 90-minute set that included the group’s first-ever cover of Jim Croce’s You Don’t Mess Around With Jim, the title track from the late singer-songwriter’s top-selling 1972 album. Cover-wise, the quintet also tackled Little Feat’s Sailin’ Shoes, Emotional Railroad from guitarist Scott Murawski’s band Max Creek, Meat by Phish, War’s River Niger and The Band’s version of Don’t Do It. Mike also dipped into his solo repertoire for Horizon Line, Voices, Dig Further Down and Idea.

    Going over my 2012 show review — and this Mike Gordon bust out in the ‘dam definitely ranks in the top ten…wait…maybe top five!! This was a killer set of music combining choice covers and great tunes from MOSS. Can’t wait for more from Mike & Co. in 2013!!
