Tornadoes threatened St. Louis Wednesday night, bringing heavy rain, wind and
lightning with them, but the inclement weather didn’t deter Widespread Panic from
delivering a stellar show for its second night at the Peabody Opera House.

“Blackout Blues” is frequently slotted as a set closer or encore, so getting Jojo
Hermann’s barroom barnstormer right out of the gate Wednesday night seemed like
the band meant business. Jojo shined much of the first set, his piano and organ playing
leading the band into interesting places while at the same time serving as a solid foil to
Jimmy Herring’s guitar playing.

The second set’s opening trio of “Diner” > “Party at Your Mama's House” > “Ribs and
Whiskey” was a nice, diverse run of songs representing three distinct eras of Panic,
but the double-cover encore of “Ballad of John & Yoko” (The Beatles) and “No Sugar
Tonight/New Mother Nature” (The Guess Who) was where the rubber hit the road,
sending the band off to Chicago on a high note and a very thankful St. Louis crowd home
with smiles on their faces.
