Porch Songs: Bozeman, MT 10/19/2001

For the 19th volume of Porch Songs, let’s set our sights on Big Sky County….along with Glacier, Yellowstone and lots of space in-between. Widespread Panic’s first Montana performance was in Bozeman in 1993, at the Cat’s Paw, a biker bar/casino/liquor store that had a small, poorly monitored stage that served as the music venue. A place where you could pass by, lay your money down and stay for the show! Over the next decade, the Bozeman / Missoula run truly became a yearly destination. It always takes extra effort and dedication to get to those special destinations….and the band always seems to recognize that fact by delivering scorching shows in tucked away little spots. This performance from Bozeman in 2001 certainly supports that idea as it captures that ever elusive, intangible energy and gives it right back to us.

PORCH SONGS: Memphis, TN 11/25/2000

Again, for the next volume of Porch Songs, we head back to end of 2000 and the end of a monster tour. Whether by miles logged, cool places played or hot shows render, mid-October to the first of December created many wonderful musical memories. We’ve hit this tour before with the first ever Widespread Panic Archives Multi-Track Release: Carbondale 2000. These two shows from Memphis at the Mid-South Coliseum in late November fit the bill for the next Porch Songs release, so here we go with the second night. Given night one, well…good luck everyone!
